The Zetter Townhouse, Marylebone is the second addition to The Zetter Group’s Townhouse hotel family. This 24 bedroom Georgian townhouse and cocktail lounge enjoys an enviable location on Seymour Street, part of the grand Portman Estate. The tranquillity of this location belies its close proximity to the energy of Selfridges department store and just beyond that the bustle of Oxford Street and Bond Street. Awash with curios collections and antique furniture, you'd be forgiven for thinking you've been transported back in time when you enter the property. While The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is known to some as the home of The Zetter’s Great Aunt Wilhelmina, the Marylebone property is the next in the family & is that of Wicked Uncle Seymour. Inspired by the architectural collections of Sir John Soane, the interiors are crammed with a sprawling collection amassed during Uncle Seymour’s European Grand Tour, reflecting the fictional owner’s eclectic and rather colourful character. As at Clerkenwell, cocktails are made in collaboration with pioneering drinks creator Tony Conigliaro, with each recipe peppered with carefully concocted cordials, aromatics and tinctures. A menu of hearty bites is the perfect accompaniment to the heady cocktail list.

Checking into Zetter Marylebone for the first time was wonderful. A charming, cosy hideaway which feels as much a private residence as it does a quirky hotel. With a friendly team headed by Eljesa (lovely, welcoming hotel manager) we instantly fell for its casual charm yet, the touch-points were done so well including delicious cocktails, a popular afternoon tea and one of the best breakfasts we’ve had (try the full veggie, you won’t miss the meat). The room featured fun additions such as a gramophone and hidden tv which both worked really well. The location is amazing, close to Marylebone’s restaurants, bars and high street - great for dodging the Oxford Street craziness. Cannot wait to return and bring my friends!

We booked into Zetter for two nights due to a last minute change of plan… we ended up staying with them for ten days. The location is perfect for central London while also providing easy escape into the northern boroughs. The proximity to paddington also makes it convenient for Heathrow and the M4. The style of the rooms is reminiscent of the soho house properties but with a definite vibe of their own. Beds are fantastic with a firmer mattress that I prefer so enjoyed perfect sleep every night. The cocktail lounge feels like sitting in a friends sitting room if that friend happened to live in a Victorian upper class gin den, love that. Cocktails are a bit pricey but not out of the ordinary for the area. Staff very accommodating and helpful with last minute changes. Brilliant shower and bath. Breakfast always enjoyable with sweet and savory options, similarly the room service menu was lovely. Definitely try the French toast (with nutella and clotted cream) for breakfast and the club sandwich. Afternoon tea is one of their staples and we did book it one day (note 24 hour notice is preferred and sometimes necessary) and while it was very good I think cocktails and snacks early evening is more fun. The lounge starts to feel more alive when it’s gets to 50% capacity and the cocktails start to flow. Can’t recommend the place enough, you’ll love it or shy away. I’ll be booking again many times in the future.

From the moment you step inside the front door of the Zetter Townhouse it has the feeling of an exclusive members club. A small hotel perfectly placed in a quiet neighbourhood within a few minutes walk from Selfridges. Service from the limited staff is attentive and discreet. Rooms are very well furnished and beds are extremely comfortable. Windows are able to be opened for fresh air - a rare find in London - perfect during a pandemic. Disappointed that the cocktail bar was closed but then we discovered that most of London's top restaurants were also closed on a Monday - but this didn't stop the staff from serving us drinks - just no cocktails. On the whole our visit to London was disappointing - Theatre show cancelled last minute due to covid - shopping in Oxford street a shadow of its former glory and good restaurants hard to find but this hotel more than compensated for our disappointments and we will definitely return - perhaps not on a Monday!

Tea time was quite disappointing : the cakes were truly awful. Rhe finger sandwiches were okayish. The scones were the best. Service was poor. And the fact that I've been charge an extra 12.5% additional taxes without asking if I was OK is really not classy at all. So altogether £88 for 2 people, when I realized that tea time at the Wolseley is £33 per person, I felt I was really fooled! I will not recommend to my friends. I will on the contrary advise to avoid that place.

Very comfortable and pleasant stay. Fantastic location-- v central but quiet. Room was a good size and well equipped. Shabby chic theme. Staff friendly. Lovely reception area lounge/bar. One of the best boutique hotels in central London. Hard to beat it you can get a decent room rate.
