Heythrop Hotel

  • A transformation of a prestigious Grade II listed hotel - in progress


The DesignLSM team are well underway with the expansive renovation of the front of house and F&B areas of the prestigious Heythrop Park Hotel.

The stunning Grade II* property, set within 440 acres of parkland, was recently acquired by Warner Leisure Hotels and is set to open later this summer with a completely evolved aesthetic celebrating the historic architecture and founding owners of the estate.

Appealing to the existing loyal Warner guest as well as attracting new visitors, DesignLSM has undertaken a strategic and creative position on the vast project, focusing on three key principles to enhance the overall guest experience – relaxation, exploration and entertainment.

Design Inspiration

Paying homage to the baroque era, but keeping the modern traveler in mind, DesignLSM have created a distinctive design narrative for the property that runs across the sprawling estate, taking influence from the Duke’s Grand Tour in Italy and his close working relationship with his architect – Thomas Archer; alongside design inspiration woven in from the subsequent owner – Thomas Brassey.

Bridging the gap between the Grade II* listed 18th century charming manor house and the contemporary extension, an engaging aesthetic has been created that runs through the whole Estate; including The Orangery, six lounges, three restaurants, two bars, a ballroom and theatre that the studio are redesigning.

As renovations begin, DesignLSM look forward to seeing this exciting project come to life.
