Boasting elegant rooms with free WiFi, cosy bathrobes and luxury toiletries, this 4-star boutique hotel is set in quiet and leafy Little Venice. It is just 5 minutes’ walk from Paddington Rail Station.
Over the years, the building has housed a school as well as the hospital that saw the birth of mathematician and Enigma code breaker Alan Turing. Guests can enjoy a short stroll down the scenic canals or head to the city centre, which is reachable in less than 15 minutes by tube.
The rooms are embellished with traditional dark wood furniture and antiques. All beds are wrapped in soft Egyptian cotton linen and complimentary extras such as bottles of water, newspapers and tea and coffee making facilities are put at guests’ disposal.
A wide range of breakfasts are available each morning, including full English breakfasts, American-style pancakes, a variety of eggs, or a continental selection. Guests can also enjoy the Persian restaurant BANU at the Colonnade, featuring an airy and light ambiance where a vast glass roof lets the daylight stream in.
Warwick Avenue Tube Station is just 2 minutes’ walk away from The Colonnade, and Lords Cricket Ground can be reached in 20 minutes on foot. Just a 4-minute walk, the idyllic Regents Canal has a puppet theatre, a floating art gallery, and a variety of restaurants.
