The Rubens at the Palace is part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection.
President & Founder Beatrice Tollman has built Red Carnation Hotels with a vision for service excellence and a passion for generous hospitality. Today the 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.
The hotel collection is lovingly named after the signature flower Mrs. Tollman’s husband always wears, and this symbol of hospitality is also worn by every member of the team.
The much-loved Leopard Bar & Restaurant draws visitors and locals for its superb bespoke cocktails and dining menu, which has earned the prestigious AA One Rosette for Culinary Excellence. Guests can watch Executive Chef Kevin Semple cooking up a storm through the open kitchen, and indulge in everything from the freshest Guernsey seafood, sourced locally from Manor Farm Foods, to celebrated signature dishes created by our founder, Beatrice Tollman. Afternoon tea, meanwhile, is a real occasion, served in the Zebra Lounge or out on the sun-washed Terrace.
Fine wine is an integral part of The Duke of Richmond experience, and our extensive wine list is filled with fine vintages from around the world. Within it you will encounter a careful selection from the great names from the Old World – classic wines from Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Champagne – complemented by a wide range of wines from the New World, many of them offering outstanding value.
We are proud to present vintages from our celebrated sister wine estate Bouchard Finlayson, makers of some of South Africa’s most distinguished wines.
