Luxury Indian hotel Lalit brings subcontinent to South Bank

A former grammar school where novelist Lawrence Durrell was a pupil is to be turned into a £350-a-night luxury Indian hotel.

The new owners of the Grade II listed Victorian building on the South Bank near Tower Bridge say they plan to bring Indian hospitality to the capital for the first time.

 The £50 million hotel, in the erstwhile St Olave’s Grammar School, is the first overseas venture for family-owned Lalit hotel group and is due to open later this month. Innovations will include an Indian bread bar — known as the Naanery — serving only breads from the subcontinent such as roti and kulcha matched with wines.
