Boutique Hotelier - French hotel group opens first UK site in London’s Paddington

In its article "French hotel group opens first UK site in London’s Paddington", Boutique Hotelier presents the Grand Hotel Bellevue London.

French group Lignée Hotels has opened its first UK property, Grand Hotel Bellevue, in London’s Paddington neighbourhood.

The 60-room boutique hotel features interior design by Paris-based architect Fabrizio Casiraghi and spreads across five floors of a listed Victorian townhouse facing the greenery of Norfolk Square.

Grand Hotel Bellevue is home to the Pondicherry Bar, in the ground floor space opposite the lobby. For this space, Casiraghi chose a bold palette with a bright yellow tone on the walls, offset by the rich tapestries created in collaboration with American fashion designer Emily Bode.

The hotel’s bedrooms mix a vintage feel with a more contemporary approach. In every room, bespoke furniture in dark wood is combined with matching carpets and curtains in muted tones, while the same shades are replicated in their bolder version across the sleek tiles in the bathrooms, in a palette of alternating green, orange and blue.

The most compact of the hotel’s offerings, the Cabin Rooms (available as single or double) are inspired by boat cabins. The larger lodgings of the hotel include the Classic Rooms, imagined as a peaceful sanctuary and the Superior, on the upper floors, defined by high ceilings that nod to the Victorian architecture and heritage of the building.

More of the home’s traditional elements are celebrated in the Deluxe Rooms, characterised by traditional sash windows and super king size beds, while the Executive Rooms, sleeping up to three people, offer a sophisticated stay and include a bespoke sofa, full length mirror and large wardrobe.

Finally, the Grand Norfolk Suite features high ceilings, large French windows and views over the square below. All rooms are equipped with amenities by Floris cosmetics, and guests have access to the 24 hours NOHrD Fitness Studio.

Lignée Hôtels was founded in 2012 by the Beguinot Family and the group includes La Maison Favart & Le Narcisse Blanc hôtel & spa in Paris as well as historical Château Soucherie in Angers and Yndo Hôtel, Bordeaux.

Grand Hotel Bellevue is open now, with rooms from £200 per night (room only)
