The Experience

This gorgeous small hotel is a bit of a game changer, a template of British cool, a space designed wholly to exercise your pleasure receptors. It proves resoundingly that small is more beautiful than big ever can be and while large hotels will try to copy it, they’ll fail to pull it off, unable to match the intimacy or the lovely staff who look after you all the way. So what do you get? A small slice of heaven between Pimlico and the King’s Road. It’s a phoenix from the ashes, a Thomas Cubitt pub recently rescued from neglect. Inside, you find fat sofas in front of a roaring fire in the sitting room; pop art and exposed brick walls in the cellar. The Clubhouse serves excellent food all day and is a superb place to hang out to work or with friends. Bedrooms are flawless: cool art, chic fabrics, the best beds, power-showered bathrooms. Smaller rooms are divine, bigger rooms have sofas, the suites have free-standing baths. Buckingham Palace and Battersea Park are both close. Don’t miss it.

A short stopover but a lovely one - our little bedroom was full to the brim of gorgeous, thoughtful details, a mini bar and welcome hamper bursting with delicious treats, plus a deep, cosy bed and special Bramley lotions. Super calm and tranquil it being set back from the main road, and such a handy location for exploring Central - only a 5 min walk to Victoria and a little further to Belgravia which was so useful.

Lillie, Richmond

Didn't stay but went for family brunch including children and dog - all hugely welcomed in by great staff who went out of their way to get things right for us, including a sausage for the dog. Fabulous food, well cooked and lots of choice - grand healthy smoothies, good coffee.

Nicola, Bristol

Relaxed, cool, arty, different – the complete opposite of corporate. We loved our stay here - very comfortable bed, baskets of treats, super-friendly, humorous, helpful staff and a great breakfast in The Cambridge Street Kitchen next door.

Wendy, Bristol

Fab place - original, quirky, deeply comfortable, amazing service, lovely unusual pieces of art throughout. Without any pretension. What a find.

Charlie & Justin Salisbury

Justin Salisbury started his small boutique chain almost by accident when he took over his parents' run down guesthouse in Brighton when he was just 20. He did that place up on a shoestring by inviting local artists to decorate the rooms in return for a free stay. This turned out to be his winning formula and together with his wife Charlie they now have several Artist Residences.
