Good Hotel Guide Review
‘It has an air of luxury and style,’ says a trusted reviewer, of this ‘quiet and peaceful’ hotel on a garden square in Mayfair. The handsome Art Deco building, adorned with a giant Antony Gormley sculpture (the interior of which is now a guest room), was converted into a hotel in 2014, though ‘its sense of gravitas makes you think it’s been here for ever’. The interior has a glamorous ‘1920s vibe’, with ‘suited and booted staff’ and glossy dark wood finishes. ‘Impeccable’ bedrooms combine period detailing with contemporary mosaic-and-marble bathrooms that bring them up to date. ‘Charming small touches’ include illustrated postcards and writing paper. All meals are taken in the New York speakeasy-style Colony Grill where ‘the sommelier in particular is a delight’ and gives excellent recommendations. Our reviewer chose a ‘fantastic roast hake with beetroot and chard’; at breakfast they ordered eggs that were wonderfully cooked. ‘Staff couldn’t have been nicer’ and ‘we had an unquestionably beautiful time’.
