The Beaumont hotel in London’s Mayfair is to undergo extension and refurbishment works before reopening next year.

The hotel said it was taking advantage of uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 to remain closed over the coming months to allow for the works to take place.

Located on Brown Hart Gardens close to Oxford Street and Grosvenor Square, The Beaumont originally opened in 2014 as the first hotel by restaurateurs Corbin and King.

Business Traveller reviewed the property shortly after it opened, with Michelle Harbi giving the hotel the following verdict:

“A triumph for first-time hoteliers Corbin and King. They have brought the high-level hospitality of their restaurants to the Beaumont, with great success. It looks superb, too.”

The property has since been sold to the Barclay Brothers, and Corbin and King is no longer involved in its management.

A message on the hotel’s website currently states:

“Many of our guests cannot travel, even if they would like to. Many of our local friends and customers are working from home. And, as we have all discovered in this challenging and changeable time, much remains uncertain.

“We have therefore decided to take advantage of this unpredictable environment to commence long-planned work on an extension to the hotel. We will also undertake a soft refurbishment of the Cub Room, the Bar, the Colony and the Spa.

“This means that we hope to reopen in late Spring 2021.

“Time will fly and in just a few months a host of familiar faces will be waiting to welcome you back to The Beaumont. In the meantime, please enjoy browsing our website.”

The hotel has also confirmed on its Twitter page that an adjoining building will be used for the extension, which will add an undisclosed number of rooms to the property.
