Red Carnation Hotels

Red Carnation Hotels


Red Carnation Hotels are a collection of family-run, award-winning boutique hotels in the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Switzerland, Guernsey, Botswana and the USA. 

The Red Carnation love story began in 1952, when a beautiful young woman called Bea, caught the eye of a distinguished young hotelier named Stanley, who was known for wearing a Red Carnation in his lapel. Today a Red Carnation flower is proudly worn by each and every member of our team as a symbol of our passion, commitment and care.  

The Red Carnation Hotel Collection proudly stands at 20 exceptional properties around the world, each unique and special, whilst sharing the founding values that define the family-owned and run business. With an exceptional reputation for exquisite fine dining, leading spas and sumptuous surroundings, great pride is taken in delivering warm, thoughtful and highly personalised service.

The Red Carnation Hotel collection was officially recognised at Platinum standard Investors in People in 2020, the highest accolade it’s possible to reach - and we achieved this on a global basis. This award recognises our commitment to all initiatives that are people and culture oriented, including career growth and opportunities for all, as well as our far-reaching commitment to sustainability, diversity and inclusivity.
