Good Hotel Guide Review

Across the cobbled square from The Zetter (see previous entry) is its eccentric aunt, outwardly an ‘elegant’ Georgian town house, but inside resembling a riot in an antique shop. Walls are crowded with paintings and knick-knacks, shelves crammed with books and bibelots, all around is a quirky decadence. Admire examples of the taxidermist’s art as you partake of a ‘delightful’ continental breakfast or supper snacks devised by chef Bruno Loubet – a mug of soup, sharing boards, ‘Aunt Wilhelmina’s “drop of sherry” trifle’. (A room-service menu is also available all day.) Evenings, mixologist Tony Conigliaro makes wicked cocktails in the ‘stylish’, ‘atmospheric’ lounge. Bedrooms are as quirky as you like – a four-poster bed has a union flag canopy; a bathtub is set in an alcove of gold – while all have amusing artwork, reclaimed and antique furniture, a raindance shower in the bathroom. They’ve all been thoughtfully kitted out, too, with a minibar and espresso machine, a selection of novels, still and sparkling water from the Zetter’s own boreholes. (ML, and others)

Guest comments

' It's brilliantly quirky, the staff were wonderful, and we'd go back in a heartbeat. We've been raving about it to everyone! ' - Peter MacRrobert - November, 2016
'A delightful stay, and reasonable value for central London. Service was informal and excellent. Our room at the ront, on the third floor; was large enough, and pretty quiet considering its city location. The lighting was rather dark. Our bathroom was satisfactory; shower one of the best,. The spacious lounge/bar area had tons of style. At breakfast time the lounge was quiet and relaxing. The continental breakfast was comprehensive.. The decor was appealing. The cocktail list was excellent, and the light bites were first class. The Zetter bistro was busy but good. ' - Max Lickfold - October, 2014
'Well worth the entry. Friendly, welcoming and very comfortable, a real find in London. The small hotel feel was there in spades. ' - David Armstrong - December, 2012
