Value
We're a thoroughly new kind of hotel; so much so that we actually call ourselves a house, as we aim to be a Melting Pot for getting people together and because our way of doing things is perhaps just a little more personable and informal than some. And a touch off-beat: unusual cuisines; unexpected events; untypical meetings; unorthodox interiors; unconventional bedrooms; uncommon people. We have 83 bedrooms. 7 event and meeting spaces (some indoors and some out). 4 restaurants and bars. An outdoor pool. A back garden. A gym. And lots of surprises to keep things buzzing.

My wife and I stayed at the Social House for 1 night and everything from the booking process by Winnie and Pauline to the check-in process by Hottensia was amazing. The food, the room that they gave us, the amenities..Everything was very well prepared and set for us.
