Von Essen has
announced that its new-build hotel attached to The London Heliport in Battersea
will open in the autumn under the name Hotel Verta.
The hotel group
says that the 70 rooms and suites at the property will be furnished in a “classically modern style each with original artwork and the finest,
bespoke fittings”. All-day dining eatery Patrisey Restaurant (an Anglo-Saxon
name for Battersea) will feature traditional English and modern European
dishes, while The Vertilon Bar will be situated on the bank of the river.
Leisure facilities include Falconbrook Spa, with sanarium, heated lounges,
steam room, sauna, gym and signature spa treatments.
For meetings there will be seven function
rooms and a ballroom accommodating between 12 and 200 delegates, as well as a “conference
café”. The hotel itself will form part of the revamped London Heliport on the
south bank of the River Thames, and will be Von Essen’s first London hotel, as well as the first property
in its new Metropolitan Set.
