Travelers' Choice
The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is a 13-bedroom Georgian townhouse with an award-winning cocktail lounge located just on the historic St John's Square. This eclectic property feels more like the private residence of an eccentric (and fabulous!) Great Aunt than a hotel - we like to call her Aunt Wilhelmina! Each of our rooms is completely unique, featuring different, bold shades of heritage colours and vivacious antique pieces. Every corner of the property is crammed full of collectibles, taxidermy and ‘Victoriana’ from Aunt Wilhelmina’s world travels, and as soon as guests enter the light blue front door they feel as if they've stumbled upon something secret and special. The cocktail lounge is a destination in itself. A collaboration between The Zetter Group and Tony Conigliaro (Drinks Factory and 69 Colebrooke Row), each recipe features bespoke ingredients developed and made by the bar team in the lab. Stuffed full of oddities and curios, with an open fire crackling in the grate, the relaxed, sitting room is equally suited to a lazy afternoon indulging on Afternoon Tea as it is a night of uproarious revelry. This unique boutique property is also available to hire exclusively.

We arrived for a cream tea but stayed for cocktails. The cream tea was one of the best I’ve had a mixture of the classic Wilhamina ( sandwiches )and Seymour (pastries) with a nice selection of teas. The staff (friendly and knowledgable) were welcoming and put us at ease in the lovely quirky surroundings . After we couldn’t resist in tasting some of the highest quality cocktails on offer . A pleasure going and a big thank you to the staff .

Fabulous service from all the staff and a special thanks to the manager, Alex, who remembered all the little details and could not have done any more to look after us. We will definitely be coming back!

Went hear for a dinner with c 20 Chairs and CEOs to launch new book. Stunning room with unstuffy and attentive service and excellent food and wine. Room had perfect warm atmosphere on a chilly drizzly night.

My husband and I stayed one night at this wonderful hotel. The service from start to finish was impeccable. We were greeted by a wonderful friendly and efficient receptionist who then personally escorted us to our very comfortable room. The interior design of the hotel feels traditional yet quirky and classic but comforting. Returning late from a party we stayed up even later drinking in the cosy Townhouse bar where the staff were attentive and the other guests friendly. We thoroughly recommend Zetter!
