Westbourne, Hyde Park Now Trading


The Westbourne, Hyde Park, London (formally known and referred to as the Royal Court Apartments) was a recently completed architectural refurbishment project designed and managed by Morrison Design Limited.

The proposals were to take the opportunity to enhance the quality and appeal of the property as a whole, and to increase the number of guest rooms in the Hotel from 78no. to 96no. It is to remain as an apart-hotel, with each guestroom having its own basic cooking facilities.  It is not proposed to create any additional floor space; instead, the increase in rooms is achieved through a reduction in the number of multiple room units and a rationalisation of the layout generally.

The project was a huge success and as of September 2016, the hotel began trading and is already operating at near to 100% occupancy. There is an additional phase including the works to the listed building element that is still ongoing and due for completion in December of this year.

Morley Hayes Hotel Internal View

Morrison Design Ltd’s architectural and interior design for the Morley Hayes Hotel in Derbyshire, has once again been ranked amongst the best hotels in the United Kingdom by the travel site TripAdvisor.

TripAdvisor Top 25 Hotels

The TripAdvisor Top 25 Hotels, placed Morley Hayes Hotel at No. 4 in the UK. For the full list, visit: www.tripadvisor.co.uk/TravelersChoice-Hotels-g186216-a_Mode.expanded

Great Hotel
“We stayed here for 3 nights and it is a fantastic hotel. Nice bars, great rooms with a really good view over the golf course.”

An Excellent Hotel
“The hotel is surrounded by the extensive scenic golf course. We had a superior room that was large, well finished and very clean.”

Morley Hayes Hotel

The 32 bedroom new build hotel by Morrison Design is set within the green belt and designed to merge into the landscape and harmonise with the existing golf club buildings. The design saw single loaded bedrooms to reduce mass, in an L-shaped plan that created a courtyard with the original farm grouping. The two-storey element is set within the contours; single-storey on the entrance façade and two-storey to the balcony rooms overlooking the golf course. The timber king post porte-cochere, the palette of natural, locally sourced materials and vernacular detailing all reflect this contextual design approach.
