In a peaceful cul-de-sac close to Green Park, this luxurious Victorian hotel (Althoff Hotels) combines sumptuously decorated rooms with a Michelin-starred restaurant – a combination that’s just right for the chic Mayfair streets close by.
In a fitting modernisation of the former home of that great fabulist, Edward Lear, ‘a warm, inclusive atmosphere’ reigns over the Chinese ceramics, architectural plaster mouldings and assorted ornaments in this deliciously designed town house, a ten-minute walk from Hyde Park.
The red-brick facade of these three Victorian town houses hides a long and intriguing history: the buildings have been home, at various times, to a nanny of Queen Victoria’s children, several troops of Allied officers, and a heroine of the French Resistance.
