Our period hotel was built as a Victorian terraced house in 1870, as part of Lord Holland’s Estate in the Holland Park area, making it one of the oldest hotels in central London. The building has undergone some changes over the years, but retains many period features such as the period dining room and lounge with open fire place. The character remains Victorian in essence. We look to improve the facilities to our guests, and provide an affordable stay in one of the world’s prime locations, perfect for London breaks.
Our family established this as a hotel in 1954 and it has been in continuous use under the same family ownership. At that time there was no international tourism, and clients were business travellers visiting London and the Exhibitions for work.
