Good Hotel Guide Review
Georgian ‘Grand Taste’ and sybaritic comforts are the trademarks of Peter McKay and Douglas Blain’s eccentric hotel in gentrified Spitalfields. Two 18th-century buildings have been artfully restored with an air of playful opulence. The wood-panelled sitting room, with its plush sofas, cosy nooks and a well-stocked honesty bar, offers a tranquil escape from nearby bustling Brick Lane and the City. In the bedrooms, crushed velvet bedspreads and goose down-filled pillows sit comfortably with modern comforts and quirky details – bathrooms might have a loo behind a bookcase, or a ‘bathing machine’. Breakfast, delivered to the room, has yogurt, fruit, granola, fresh pastries, bagels. (Underground: Liverpool Street; Overground: Shoreditch High Street)
