Luxury Sloane Square hotel glowing with Edwardian charisma

Three grand, redbrick Edwardian townhouses have been knocked together to create this quintessentially British hotel that mixes old-style charm with fullsome creature comforts.

Know It All

Hit the spot
Steps away from Sloane Square, in poshest Chelsea.

Come here for...
● The chance to stay in a real Edwardian classic – a swagged haven of luxe off Sloane Square. ● Utterly English comforts. ● A really can-do concierge service. ● A beautiful London garden square at the rear, complete with cherry trees.

Amenities
Large private gardens, and a very English drawing room where tea is served at four, champagne at six and cocoa at bedtime.

Good to know
There's a small two-person lift and street parking around here is a headache; leave the car at home.

Bedtime...

Bedrooms
24 rooms, 11 suites

Special features
Rooms come with Edwardian high ceilings, Victorian antiques and memorabilia from leading theatrical stars who have stayed. Many have four poster beds dressed in Sea Island cotton sheets and original working fireplaces, with views over the leafy private gardens to the rear. Suites come with a fully fitted kitchen. The techy bits are there too – you'll find satellite TV and DVD players behind polished cabinet doors, and of course wi-fi. Each room also has a bath and power shower.

Pillow Talk
Classic double rooms are rich in comforts. The top suites – all named after theatrical names such as Sheridan. Coward and Bennett – are regally plush. We loved the four-poster Ashcroft suite, with its views over the gardens.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Decked with masks of famous artistes (among them Dame Kiri Te Kanawa) the snug dining room is just the place for a hearty English breakfast to set you up for the day. There’s round-the-clock room service and private dining, too: expect British favourites like beef Wellington and shanks of lamb.

Breakfast
Breakfast is served until 11am, so there’s every excuse for a lie-in.

Room service
Available 24 hours a day.

See & Do

See & Do
