Just a stones throw from Covent Garden, this achingly stylish city bolthole is without doubt one of London’s most luxurious. The courtyard entrance and Pavanazzo marble staircase make for a great first impression while the Tony-Chi designed interiors hark back to the building’s Belle Époque past.
Each bedroom has been appointed with bespoke furnishings, Italian linens and the most extensive pillow selection we’ve come across, not to mention the myriad of tech details. Czech & Speak toiletries amp up the wow factor in the bathrooms and the robes are so thick you’ll find yourself wriggling into them at any given chance.
In-house Scarfes Bar oozes sophistication and serves up a winning selection of Indian-inspired nibbles beside a carefully curated drinks list. With a drawing room-cum-gentleman’s club vibe and service that’s right on the money there’s little wonder hotel guests and cocktail enthusiasts can’t keep away.
Best room: Take up residence in the handsome Manor House Suite for the weekend. Boasting its own library, dining room and a butler to attend to your every need, it’s a real showstopper.
Dress code: Think refined yet understated.
