A firm favourite with the world of music, show business and fashion down the years. Rooms and furnishings are eccentric in a funky, haphazard way.
Unique Quality: Themed pleasure pads include the seductive Morrocan Room, strewn with carpets and cushions and a serene Japanese Garden Room with an elaborate spa bath, Buddhas and its own private grotto. In many rooms, the Victorian bathtubs take centre stage. It was in Room 16, that Johnny Depp allegedly filled the bath with champagne for Kate Moss. Alice Cooper used his tub to house his Boa Constrictor, which he fed with white mice ordered from a local pet shop.
Directions: Holland Park or Notting Hill Gate tube.
You have to look hard to see that this row of tall stucco town houses in a very elegant street in Notting Hill is actually a hotel.
I've walked past this place many times and I've heard its terrific reputation as a quirky but very friendly, special and discreet hotel a world apart from the production-line hotels all too common in London. I've never stayed there though, or even been inside, so if anybody stays there please let me know how you found it.
