The building reflected a new confidence and wealth in the Borough and the Council spent lavishly on fine architects, craftsmen and artists to decorate it. More building was commissioned in the 1930s and this splendid addition contains the Art-Deco interiors which have made Town Hall Hotel a famous film location.
Pevsener, the Architectural Bible of Britain, called the internal decoration ‘subtle but expensive Deco style’. Australian walnut wood was used to panel the Council Chamber, mahogany in the mayoral office, green and white marble lined the staircase, while even the air vents were covered with exquisitely patterned brass grilles. Town Hall Hotel marries Edwardian, Art-Deco and now the most cutting-edge modern architecture in one harmonious whole.
The design has drawn plaudits from English Heritage and won accolades within the industry. Town Hall Hotel won the prestigious RICS London award for Building Conservation, as well as the national Project of the Year Award, reflecting the exceptional concentration that was put into restoration and preservation as well as imaginative reinvention.
Using techniques never before seen in Britain, including a patterned metal veil, laser-cut with a design inspired by the Art-deco Council Chamber, every room is flooded with natural light, while original features have been painstakingly restored. Architects, furniture designers, artists and craftsmen have been involved at every step of the way to create a truly stunning interior.

Energy binds everything and everyone, but we also need it to keep the lights on. At Town Hall Hotel we have implemented a wide range of energy saving initiatives to keep our footprint small and hotel sustainable (in room key card power switch).
