Get a Bedroom - David Hicks Suite at Stapleford Park


Stapleford Park 2011 - David Hicks Bedroom 1110_Stapleford_Park_David_Hicks_Bedroom_at_Stapleford_Park_(1).jpgLeicestershire’s Stapleford Park hotel has all the period charm you could ask for without any of the cobwebs. Each of its 55 bedrooms is individually styled from top to bottom, and none more beautifully than the David Hicks suite. The late interior decorator-designer, famed for his royal clients – Prince Charles and the King of Saudi Arabia have both called on his services – put together the room to complement the leafy views through the window, with a barrel-shaped ceiling designed to match the original stone frames. The bed is set in the centre of the room with heavy drapes giving a stately feel, while the lively fabrics for which the eccentric Hicks was famous still look as fresh as ever.
