The
Experience

Serena’s great-great grandfather was commissioned by Thomas Cubitt to build this row of houses and liked the results so much he kept one for himself. They were built to rival Belgravia and have the same august credentials: pillars at the door, porticos and friezes, then high-ceilinged interiors as befits elegant Georgian architecture. Fast forward 160 years and the house, still in the same family, is now a chic B&B hotel, with a friendly brigade of international staff and a lovely sitting room in reception, where you can make a coffee and read the papers. Stylish bedrooms have all been recently refurbished. Expect vibrant colours, period wallpaper, robes in good bathrooms, perhaps a sofa or a bath in the room. You get smart phones, too; free WiFi, UK calls, even calls to the US and several EU countries. A delicious breakfast is served behind a wall of glass downstairs in a cool new dining room with a map of London on one wall; the far end turns into a bar at night. Victoria (and the train to Gatwick) and Buckingham Palace are close. The Harry Potter rooms are popular with younger guests.

Reviews

Lovely hotel, spotless rooms, comfortable beds, all the staff incredibly nice, friendly and helpful and a great atmosphere, with lots of happy guests. Breakfast was delicious, the cooked breakfast was amazing but so was the continental with a huge selection of good things, including British cheeses, ham and so on. I'm really happy to have found a nice hotel in London at a reasonable price and close enough to Victoria to walk there and I would highly recommend it - thank you Alastair Sawdays!

A pleasant stay. The staff, in particular, were extremely helpful and courteous. Very comfortable bed too! One query. It is listed with an H in your guide - hotel? When I asked for room service I was told this wasn't available as it is only a B & B. This was not entirely helpful as we had missed lunch and wanted a snack in our room. Might be worth flagging up? Otherwise - recommended! Regards Jane Olliff-Cooper

Local points of interest from Kia Hellens

  • Nearby Elizabeth Street is packed with unique shops: from Mungo and Maud for posh pets, Les Sentiers, for a perfume picked to match your personality, Erickson Beamon for our of this world jewellery, or Peggy Porschen for a divine cake.
  • Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guard is world famous and only a short walk away. If you've never been to London don't miss this iconic experience.
  • For a truly different restaurant experience, why not visit michelin starred Quilon for award winning south west coastal Indian cuisine.
  • Nearby Chelsea Physic garden is an oasis of calm and beauty. Founded in 1673 by the Society of Apothecaries; it is one of Europe's oldest botanic gardens with important herb and medicinal collections, and a wonderful collection of mediterranean plants.
  • St Gabriel's is a beautiful Gothic style church close to the hotel. It was built in 1853 - just 2 years after the hotel was built - and boasts cathedral like proportions despite it's smaller size.
  • If you like watching Made in Chelsea, you might like to do a tour of the watering holes you see on the series. Many of them are nearby, and even if you don't bump into your favourite star, you can at least share the same experiences!
