Belmond to manage second London property

Luxury hotel, river cruise and train operator Belmond has signed a further management agreement with Cadogan Estates, this time to operate Durley House, an all-suite, private residence-style property on London's Sloane Street.

In July, Belmond signed a deal to operate the 64-bedroom Cadogan hotel, on the same Knightsbridge block. The Cadogan closed at the end of that month to undergo a £30m renovation, funded by Cadogan Estates and will reopen as Belmond Cadogan hotel in summer 2016.

The 15-suite Durley House is also undergoing a renovation and is also scheduled to open in summer 2016. The revamped long-stay suites will be serviced by Belmond Cadogan hotel and guests will have full use of the hotel's facilities. These will include a new gourmet restaurant opening onto Sloane Street.

On signing the first management deal, Hugh Seaborn, chief executive of Cadogan Estates, described Belmond as the "perfect partner". "It fits perfectly with Sloane Street's international cachet and our vision and strategy for ensuring it becomes the most exclusive and luxurious shopping street in the world," he said.

Belmond owns and operates four other businesses in Britain: the Belmond British Pullman, Belmond Northern Belle and Belmond Royal Scotsman luxury rail experiences, as well as the 32-bedroom Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons with two-Michelin-starred restaurant in Oxfordshire.
