The Greenbank

Perched on the riverbank of Cornwall’s famous Carrick Roads, The Greenbank began in life in 1640 as a private residence and was later converted into a luxurious hotel frequented by travelling sea captains, Florence Nightingale, Kenneth Graeme (who began writing Wind in The Willows whilst staying) and members of the royal family.

Here at Friend’s we were extremely excited to be approached by the Greenbank to develop a new experience and concept for 9 of the hotel’s most luxurious bedrooms. Our ‘riverbank retreat’ bedrooms feel calm and relaxing, contemporary, spacious and perfectly enhance their spectacular views. The waterside and maritime story is evident but remains playful and modern.

Bathrooms were designed to complement bedrooms using white painted wooden panelling for walls, nautical style lamps and feature bespoke graphical artwork created by Friends which include dates/history of hotel and local area.

Bespoke art work features in each of the bedrooms and was commissioned by Friends.

‘A day out on the Flushing River’ is a series of 12 original charcoal sketches by local artist and printmaker Nina Packer.
