Hotel du Vin’s One Devonshire makeover inspired by the Glasgow Botanic Gardens

By Ellen Thomson at

One Devonshire Gardens by Hotel du Vin has unveiled a new makeover – inspired by the nearby Botanic Gardens.

The boutique hotel has completed what it calls a transformational refurbishment of its 49 rooms, including its six luxurious suites.

And the tones and colours of the designs cast a nod to the flora and fauna of the nearby botanical gardens.

Complete: the boutique hotel describes the refurbishment as transformational

The guest rooms boast fresh colour schemes, accented by rich, seasonal colour features to add brightness and vibrancy.

The original fireplaces, original ornate cornices and mouldings, and magnificent windows, have all been preserved and worked into the overall design.

The style is elevated by sculptural lighting and curated mid-century and re-invented antique furniture, which come together to create an eclectic, original style.

Following the refurbishment, the hotel now boasts two Luxury Townhouse Suites – Krug and Toques & Clochers.

The Krug Suite has been completely reconfigured and features a dining area (which can also serve as a meeting room) and a luxury bathroom which comprises a free standing roll top bath and large shower.

Toques & Clochers has been elevated to a sumptuous Luxury Townhouse Suite, and now has the potential to be either a one or two bedroom suite.

The project was spearheaded by Hotel du Vin’s group development director Jonathan Livesey, supported by interior design business Anita Rosato Interior Design.

One Devonshire Gardens by Hotel du Vin on the Great Western Road, is made up of five grand 19th century Grade B listed houses connected on the ground floor and first floors, and boasts 49 guestrooms each with its own distinctive architectural character.

Guus Bakker, CEO EMEA Frasers Hospitality, said: “One Devonshire Gardens is a truly unique hotel which brings centuries of heritage together with today’s modern life, and I’m delighted that the guestrooms reflect this.

“The final result is 49 beautiful spaces which marry together the old and the new, creating a warm space which is not only steeped in history but is also functional for today’s traveller.

“We’re delighted with the result and can’t wait for Hotel du Vin’s guests to relax and enjoy these lovely spaces.”

Tradition: ‘One Devonshire Gardens is a truly unique hotel’

Anita Rosato, owner at Anita Rosato Interior Design, said: “One Devonshire Gardens is such a special place and it has been a real privilege to work with the team to take this part of the hotel forward into the next chapter.

“Inspiration for the concept of the guestrooms came from the Hotel du Vin brand and its close association with great wines and champagnes as well as from the beautiful Botanical Gardens nearby, where boldly coloured flora and fauna have really informed the move to a more vibrant colour palette.

“We’re so pleased with the result and are really excited that the rooms are now available for guests to experience.”
