Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London Fire – Latest Update
Following last month’s blaze at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, it seems the fire damage hasn’t been as catastrophic as first suspected.
At the end of May, the hotel unveiled its multi-million pound restoration, announcing the completion of works to the world, only to be devastated by a fire less than two weeks later.
Widely reported, the fire at the Mandarin Oriental saw 120 firefighters attend the scene to tackle the flames, with 36 hotel guests (one of whom was singer Robbie Williams) and 250 hotel staff evacuated unhurt from the scene.
In the last 24 hours, the following statement has been released on the hotel’s website:
“Following the unfortunate fire which broke out on 6 June 2018, the hotel remains temporarily closed. Fortunately, the fire damage has mainly been confined to the exterior courtyard of the hotel with limited impact on the interiors. Repairs are well underway and we anticipate a partial re-opening in the fourth quarter of the year. We will continue to provide updates on a regular basis.”
We’ll keep you updated with any further news on the reopening.
