Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We’ve been raving about it to everyone!’ A Guide reader this year extolled this ‘brilliantly quirky hotel’ in a Georgian town house across the cobbled square from the original Zetter (see previous entry). The owners conceived of the place as the imaginary home of an eccentric Great Aunt Wilhelmina: the walls are crowded with paintings; a fire crackles in the hearth of her parlour crammed with winged and button-back armchairs, knick-knacks and oddities. Throughout, ‘the staff are wonderful’. Bedrooms have surprises among their antique furnishings, but most welcome are the homely comforts supplied: ground coffee, novels, fluffy robes, good toiletries. From aperitif o’clock, join locals for creative cocktails mixed with home-made cordials and infusions in the apothecary-inspired bar. A menu of superior snacks devised by chef Bruno Loubet (potted smoked mackerel and pickled cucumber, say, or parsnip crisps) may be taken here or ordered for room service at any time. For dinner, there are many popular restaurants on the doorstep. ‘We’d go back in a heartbeat.’ (Peter MacRobert

' 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
