Good Hotel Guide Review

The ‘unfailingly helpful’ staff and ‘well-thought-through details’ stand out at the Bejerano family’s colourful modern hotel near Marble Arch. It has an ‘intimate feel, despite its size’ (it occupies seven Georgian town houses and two mews homes). The stylish, ‘comprehensively equipped’ bedrooms blend original features, fun textures, bold prints and the latest technology, while new British artwork hangs on the walls. In the ‘excellent’ Hunter 486 restaurant, chef Gary Durrant has developed a ‘comprehensive’ modern British menu inspired by the diversity of London’s street food. ‘We received superb service and splendid food every evening.’ Enjoy an aperitif in the opulent martini ‘library’, or some afternoon fizz in the champagne lounge. Bar, brasserie, library (afternoon tea, cocktails), champagne salon. Gym. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Sky). Background music. Valet parking. Children and dogs welcomed. 82 bedrooms (2 suitable for disabled). Room from £275. Breakfast £19–£24. Two-course dinner £19, three-course dinner £21. (Underground: Marble Arch). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'The warm welcome included greetings from the general manager. The public rooms were attractive, shiny, done with humour: quirky sculptures and works of art. Background music (groan) in most rooms, but the beautifully furnished, well-stocked library seemed to have escaped this intrusion. In our junior suite, the decor was confusing, but it had three plain walls with some well-chosen art work, and plain, atractive curtains. It was was light,airy, slightly narrow. Four windows overlooking the street meant there was a little traffic noise. Our bed was comfortable. The large bathroom was well stocked. Lighting was good, storage carefully thought out. A televison at the foot of the bath had a handset guaranteed to be submersible. Many high-tech things impressed my husband. I was more impressed by the inclusive soft drinks mini-bar, the Nespresso machine, the teapot, the milk in the fridge. Breakfast was exceedingly good. Staff were obliging and professional throughout.
