Down Hall Country House Hotel, Hertfordshire

Dating back to 1322, this impressive Italianate mansion is acknowledged as one of the finest country houses in Britain.

A number of years ago we refurbished the Honeymoon Suite and in 2015 were commissioned to refurbish 40 bedrooms as part of a major refurbishment project.

Three samples rooms in the original building were followed by a further seven (including a new Honeymoon Suite) continuing the theme of the sample rooms.

Broadly speaking, the rooms were categorized into 3 segments:-

Mini-Doubles – with no discernable historical architectural features
Classic – these rooms have original cornice, high ceilings, good light and are of good size
Feature Classic – spacious rooms with intricate cornices, exceptional ceilings, panelling or other architectural features

The theme defined by the earlier the sample rooms was subsequently carried through across all three room types. The overall result was a single discernable design palette executed to varying degrees.

All bathrooms were reconfigured to provide guests with the best possible showering experience amongst elements of classic marble, glass, brassware and stylish vanity units. Walls were repositioned or removed to make the most of the bathroom space. Generous luxury walk in showers replaced mean-sized baths in smaller rooms, whilst in larger rooms, space permitting, a separate bath and shower was provided.
