Leisure Facilities


The building was constructed from very good quality materials, which means that many of the original features are still in remarkable condition. These are being expertly restored to enhance the lives of the new residents of The Star and Garter, producing a unique living environment.

From the main entrance on Richmond Hill one is led to a grand marble and columned hall, which has an apse recess lit by beautiful stained glass windows depicting Faith, Charity and St George. Opposite this rises the curved staircase, with its elegant wrought iron balusters.

The chapel also survives intact, and is lavishly finished in polished marble, with moulded plasterwork, painted glass windows and carved oak furniture. Many of the rooms possess their ornate mouldings and coffered ceilings, including the King’s Room, which now takes on new life as the swimming pool and leisure suite with views over the terrace.
