Luxury boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair is investing £14 million in a refurbishment plan, which will see a new restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Rankin, 129 new-look bedrooms, suites and apartments, alongside a new tea lounge and bar. flemings tableWork began last year on the family-owned hotel and is due to be finished in the first quarter of 2016. The hotel remains fully operational during the renovations. The first phase of the refurbishment project is now nearly finished, with 40 of the bedrooms and suites and its ten Mayfair apartments all being redone. They will be finalised in June. The bedrooms are decorated with a nod to the 1930’s, with shades of bronze and soft greys, along with bespoke furniture designed in silver stained fiddle-back Sycamore. Designed in conjunction with spirits experts and authors Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley, each suite has a complimentary gin bar, including Flemings’ own signature blend, created in collaboration with Shaun Rankin, and all located within specially designed gin cabinets.flemings room The second phase of the development will commence in January 2016 and is set to see the remaining hotel rooms revamped alongside the complete refurbishment of the bar and restaurant areas.  During this stage the hotel will again remain fully operational.

His new venture with Flemings Hotel will run alongside his current restaurant.
