Definitely has the exclusivity feel, and the rooms are decorated super sympathetically to the era of days gone by. We stayed in Earl Grey feature room and it was good. Has a private home feel, rather than 4-5 star hotel effect which is what they are going for. Service could have been better particularly on the front desk, aloof to... More

Loved everything from Rooms to drawing room to Bison bar with Marcel and garden for lunch. Spend 24h at home house and you know what I want to have membership already. Garden lunch was brilliant - not too fussy but accommodating. Drawing room needs pump up on service and drink quality delivery - however it was fab atmosphere. Great visit... More

You'll need to know a member (or just become one) - but Home House is a fantastic way to spend your evening in Central London. Go for dinner in one of the houses (no 19), then a drink or two at 21 and then maybe even stroll down to The Vault for some late night tomfoolery.

I am luckily enough to have a spouse who is a member of another 'exclusive' club in London, so when we got invited to Home House I was intrigued. Not my cup of tea I am afraid, amazing buildings but very loud and full of self conscious wannabes, lots with wannabeards!

I often meet a friend at Home House who is a member there and always chuffed when this place is suggested. Perfect spot for a chat, cup of tea or an opportunity to catch up on work. Good service and never feels too busy

I was invited by a member of the club at Home House London for afternoon tea. It was a bit hard to find the place, no sign, but in the end, after checking with my friend via phone, I dared to open the imposing doors at 20 Portman Square. I was taken by my friend from the beautiful hall, via... More

Given that it was Shanks Birthday, we were treated to a wonderful dinner and drinks at HomeHouse, we ended up spending 7 hours in here. Wow 1) We had drinks in the Gloucester Lounge 21 - lovely environment with happy friendly service and nice music on too. 2) Moved into Dinner at the Asian Fusion restaurant called the OCTAGON DINING...

Was very lucky to be invited here for lunch. Amazing buildings in a prime location. Superbly decorated rooms. Friendly polite staff. Very relaxed for a private members establishment. Had ox's cheek which was delicious. Recommended highly is you ever have the opportunity to visit.

Every member of staff in this club are as helpful and polite as you would expect. Despite being a private members club, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. We had a great meal there, and the food was very good. I can't comment on "value" as we I didn't see the bill, but the healthy eating menu option had probably... More

A group of us stayed here for one night as one of our friends has a membership for the club. I must say some of the rooms are very spacious and lovely but the room me and my partner had was not up to the same standard. Our room was out the way and we had to go past food... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
