UK: The Rubens at The Palace hotel, a member of Red carnation Hotels, is about to add the finishing touches to a hotel-wide renovation.

Overlooking the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace in London, the property has undergone a multi-million-pound refurbishment, and now features two new restaurant concepts, a bar, an English afternoon tea service, plus new guest rooms and suites.

Each of the 163 rooms, suites and serviced apartments has been refurbished. More than 80 new marble bathrooms have been installed, alongside 163 chandeliers, some of which are from Murano. The rooms feature updated colours and fabrics, along with new in-room technology.

In May, the final element to the refurbishment, a new incarnation of the Leopard Bar, will open to guests and visitors, serving more than 200 whiskies, 20 Champagnes and over 50 Champagne cocktails.

Malcolm Hendry, general manager of The Rubens at the Palace, said: "We look forward to warmly welcoming guests and visitors through our newly-polished doors to celebrate British heritage with us. Our caring and passionate team have lovingly refurbished The Rubens from top to bottom, embracing our royal connections, and celebrating great British tradition across our restaurants and bars, and our rooms and suites. Now, as we prepare for the launch of our latest venue, our beautiful new Leopard Bar, the final piece in the refurbishment of the 'new-look Rubens' will be complete, and I couldn't be prouder of this incredible hotel."
