Good Hotel Guide Review
Grand-hotel luxury mixes with small-scale intimacy at this ‘immaculate’ town house hotel, close to Hyde Park and the museums. The creation of David Levin, the hotel has recently been bought by Richard Chiu of Warwick Hotels and Resorts, who also owns the neighbouring Capital (see entry); the staff are ‘superb’ – ‘interested, and interesting’. Pass the ‘spectacular’ light installation on the way to the smart, modern bedrooms, each with air conditioning, ‘very good lighting’, a marble bathroom with underfloor heating. Treats await: besides the chic teas and capsule coffee-maker, find a champagne minibar and a selection of books to borrow. Splurge on the spacious junior suite, its large windows looking down on the neighbourhood; especially good for a family, it has a large convertible sofa bed. In the informal basement bistro, try classics such as Cornish crab, coriander, chilli cake; confit duck leg, spring onions, mashed potatoes – then wash it down with a glass of something from a wine estate in the Loire valley. Michelin-starred sister restaurant Outlaw’s at The Capital is next door. Breakfast brings ‘especially good croissants and pastries from the owner’s bakery’.
