Ted Baker founder, Ray Kelvin, designs new Hilton interiors

by Jane Kitchen | 17 Dec 2015

The Hilton Bournemouth has opened in England, featuring interiors by Ted Baker fashion brand founder Ray Kelvin and one of the UK’s first eforea spas.

Classic design and quirky innovation are central to the hotel’s aesthetic, with bespoke interiors and furnishings designed exclusively for Hilton Bournemouth by Kelvin throughout. The hotel was developed by privately owned property company THAT Group – whose chair is also Kelvin – and which owns the hotel and neighbouring Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth.

Housed in a soaring glass structure, the 172-room property offers panoramic views to the coast and across the popular seaside town.

Local craftsmanship and design influences are visible around the hotel, including specially curated items celebrating the best of British design. Artworks include a collection of local Poole Pottery – one of the largest on public display – and Colin Moore’s mural of Poole Harbour, which hangs in reception.

The hotel's conference rooms feature quirky bespoke designs. Pop-art, spectacles and umbrellas emerge from the walls and ceiling in a 'Not So Mad' room, while clocks, calendars and vintage signing in machines decorate a meeting room called ‘Not a Wind Up’.

“No ordinary design, the exquisitely curated hotel incorporates refined aesthetics with a quirky edge,” said Peter Tisdale of THAT Group. “Sitting perfectly alongside the innovative design and technological industries of the area, it’s a real head turner.”

The hotel is home to one of the UK’s first eforea spas, with four treatment rooms alongside a 20m (66ft) indoor pool, sauna, salon and 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness suite.

The hotel also features the UK's first Schpoons & Forx restaurant, created and overseen by television personality and renowned chef Matt Tebbutt, which offers British cuisine with a contemporary twist.

“With miles of beaches and buzzing nightlife, Bournemouth was a natural fit for Hilton Hotels & Resorts to bring its brand of hospitality and continue its expansion in the UK,” said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide.

“This property incorporates cutting-edge design with all the Hilton touches our guests identify with. Our collaboration with THAT Group and the opportunity to incorporate Ray Kelvin’s design expertise has created a posh getaway for travellers to create memorable experiences.”
