stay with us is like having your very own magnificent town
house, breaking down the formality of a traditional hotel in
an atmosphere that is as refreshing as it is relaxing. Our
doors first opened in 1876 as one of the very first purpose
built hotels in London. Doors that remained open through the
turn of the century, changes in ownership and even two world
wars. One distinctive mark remains ingrained: character. From
the moment you enter our stately hall, the authentic Victorian
decor envelops you. Warm muted tones combine with glorious
dark woods, blending perfectly to create a truly relaxing and
enchanting ambience. From the elegance of the sculptured
wrought iron on the grand staircase through to the detailed
craftsmanship of the wooden flooring and cornices. Genuine
quality. Personality and character are features that cannot be
created, merely attained through respect and values. Like our
excellent, traditional service, it gets better with time.
Exceptional cuisine and a welcoming atmosphere ensure our
restaurant achieves this with considerable ease. Whilst most
hotel bedrooms are simply a place to sleep, ours are much
more. Peaceful and quiet, a retreat from the city bustle,
providing the ideal place to muse over your day, at the end of
which, you can sleep comfortably in the knowledge that
everything has been taken care of.
