The Mondrian London hotel on the South Bank has been renamed as Sea Containers London.

South Bank’s Sea Containers hotel drops Mondrian brand

The Mondrian London opened in 2014 at the former Sea Containers House office building on the South Bank.

Lore Group – an international hospitality company operating in Europe and the United States – has taken over the management of the hotel from sbe.

"We're very excited about this new era and next step in the hotel's story," said Billy Skelli-Cohen, chief executive of Lore Group.

"Our incredible hotel team will continue to offer guests an unrivalled experience at Sea Containers London.

"We have lots of initiatives in the pipeline and look forward to welcoming all our guests in 2019 and beyond."

Sea Containers London will continue to house riverside eatery Sea Containers Restaurant, the Dandelyan bar from Ryan Chetiyawardana as well as a rooftop bar called 12th Knot.

The hotel's spa and Curzon cinema will continue to operate as normal.

New uniforms for staff will "nod to the golden age of transatlantic travel mixed with the contemporary street style of the South Bank".

Sea Containers London owes its unusual name to the now-defunct shipping company that occupied the riverside office block.
