Good Hotel Guide Review
Behind the sedate exterior of this plush Spitalfields spot is a host of Georgian eccentricities. Opulent yet playful, Peter McKay and Douglas Blain’s hotel occupies two 18th-century buildings. In its characterful singularity, it recalls the owners’ other London hotels (see The Rookery and Hazlitt’s, main entries). Comfy sofas and a well-stocked honesty bar in the cosy sitting rooms (all polished antiques, old portraits and wood panelling) provide an alternative to the throng of Brick Lane and the City outside. Bedrooms have discreet modern comforts amid crushed velvet bedspreads and goose-down-filled pillows; decadent bathrooms may have a cast-iron roll-top bath or a ‘bathing machine’. A breakfast of yogurt, fruit, granola, fresh pastries and bagels is delivered to the room. (Underground: Liverpool Street; Overground: Shoreditch High Street)
