We were lucky to be staying in this hotel courtesy of some friends who hosted a 50th dinner party there. We got to a hotel about 11am with the intention of dropping off our bags but our room, on the 4th floor, was actually ready. We had a really friendly greeting by both the receptionist and the gentlemen, Octavio, who showed us around the hotel and then to our room - a rarity in London! He was also knowledgeable about the hotel and its history which was nice. The hotel has a 'cricket' theme running through it although it is not too overt which pertains to the cricket ground that used to be nearby.
The bedroom was beautifully and tastefully decorated and the bathroom was also lovely in grey marbled tiles. Our room looked over one of the busy London streets but was quiet being so high up and there are also black out blinds and shutters to ensure a good night's sleep. There is everything you could want in the hotel except we never found tea or coffee making facilities which we like.
The bar and restaurant in the basement are beautifully lit and the food was first class - grilled halloumi salad to start then pork belly and scallops. After 11.30pm, we all went upstairs to the drawing room and honesty bar and it was lovely to feel so well cared for, as if you were in a friend's house.
Located between Baker St and Marylebone tube stops, it is a great location and we hope to stay here again sometime.
