Good Hotel Guide Review

You can drop in for a Pinot, Peroni or passion fruit cooler in the café or club room or under a striped awning on the front terrace at this local hang-out and hip hotel in leafy residential Pimlico. It is part of Justin and Charlotte Salisbury’s small collection of Artist Residences (see index), which began with Justin’s parents’ Brighton B&B. The public rooms serve as gallery space, with a rotating art exhibition, pop-art neon, a buzzy vibe and a general air of boho chic. Bedrooms, with maybe a bare brick wall and floorboards, are furnished with quirky vintage and reclaimed pieces, limited-edition prints, a Bakelite dial phone, Roberts radio, espresso machine, organic toiletries. An Art Deco-style suite has club chairs, a sofa, a statement bed, a freestanding bath and walk-in shower. The Loft has a 1930s French-style bath and walk-in shower in an open-plan bathroom. In the cafe & bar, brunch is served all day (perhaps potato, feta and mint fritters or a bacon sandwich), while cocktail hour ushers in dishes such as vegetable tagine, harissa roast chicken, monkfish with coconut, ginger, kefir lime and sticky rice.
