With Harrods on one side, and the theatres and restaurants of the West End on the other, The Wellesley h in London’s Knightsbridge offers five-star luxury in the grandest of English tradition.
Marble, bronze, glittering chandeliers and even ostrich leather adorn the public areas and evoke a bygone era when jazz was all the rage and high society knew how to enjoy itself.
Just 36 exquisite rooms and suites await the guest that offer spacious living areas and luxurious bathrooms whose design reflects the history of this lovely establishment that was once a 1920s townhouse. The hotel has been lovingly restored to reflect its stylish origins, but now has the benefit of every modern convenience.
The accommodation has a distinctly Art Deco feel to it without being old fashioned. Guests enjoy excellent complimentary Wi-Fi, a butler service and even the use of a complimentary Rolls-Royce to chauffeur them around the city within a 1.5 miles radius. And it’s also worth mentioning the stunning views one has over Hyde Park.
The hotel’s intimate Oval restaurant offers delicious Italian cuisine and on some nights, guests can enjoy excellent live concerts in the adjacent Jazz lounge. The hotel’s equally cozy bar stocks a truly impressive range of rare cognacs and whiskies that date back to the eighteenth century, and includes two external cigar terraces.
Other highlights here include the hotel’s quintessentially English afternoon tea, replete with scones, clotted cream and sweet treats.
In short, The Wellesley offers guests a refined and ultimately relaxing base from which to enjoy this bustling metropolis.
