The five-star Dukes London hotel is to undergo a multi-million pound refurbishment.

Work on the bedrooms and public areas, which will get under way next month, is expected to be completed by the end of spring 2017.

Debrah Dhugga, managing director of Dukes London, said: “This multi-million pound renovation will be the biggest investment the hotel has seen in decades.

“Our aim of the refurbishment is to enhance and enrich what our guests know and love about the Dukes experience, while maintaining our award-winning five-star service and attention to detail that the hotel is so well-known for.”

Dukes London is owned by Dubai-based Seven Tides Hospitality.
