Opened in December The year 2012, The Wellesley is a 1920’s costume townhouse boutique hotel?has been?beautifully restored with a modern take on the art deco style along with every modern comfort.?Named after Sir Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke regarding Wellington who served twice as Prime Minister between 1828 and 1834 and later as boss of the House of Lords, the item combines?sophisticated high end with?exceptional?assistance.
I was warmly good and personally demonstrated to room by the receptionist who explained that will my butler would certainly call shortly. Ten mins or so later, my personal butler, Cicero, came to the room and gave me a rapid tour of the bedroom, showing me exactly how everything worked as well as explaining that he was on call should I want.
I stayed in room 402, a Junior Package with views connected with Hyde Park – when used together with room 403 to your neighbors, it forms this Charlie Chaplin Suite.?The interior in the hotel has been made by Fox Linton, drawing on the inspiration of the building’s heritage as a famous spruce club. Despite drawing on its historical past, the resort has plenty of modern touches.
Stylishly furnished, the space had a super-comfortable bed, plenty of?seating, a large flat-screen Tv set and a desk from where I could work.
A selection of magazines included?Trend, GQ and House & Yard.
The bathroom is light-weight and airy and in veined Carrara marble.
Hermes toiletries?are given.
Since I just needed to carry on with work, I chose room service as opposed to going to the hotel’s Square Restaurant (Italian food) for dinner. I purchased the linguini with seafood, chilli and a tomato sauce, which was full of flavor, along with a side purchase of asparagus, accompanied by the?cheese assortment.
The hotel also has the Jazz Lounge where by?the voices of numerous jazz legends are already heard, as well as the exclusive Crystal Bar which consists of large collection of some of the finest Cognacs and whiskies. There’s even a bespoke humidor, with one of the most fascinating collections of stogies in the world sourced from leading dealers through private auction – supervised by food as well as beverage manager Giuseppe Ruo – and also a Cigar Terrace along with a distinguished collection of the best spirits and cigars.
I did make it to the?Oval Restaurant early morning where I had the full English.
Other nice touches
There was fresh fruit in my space on arrival, plus a personal note.
Another pleasant touch is the preventative measure of an in-room iPad which includes all the information you need whislt staying – everything from the weather outlook to the room program menu.
There’s perhaps the Wellesley Rolls Royce which is?available to take you anywhere within 1.5 a long way of the hotel over a first come very first serve basis.
Deluxe King rooms start from single pound 550 per night, and a Senior Suite with a Hyde Car park view such as the a single I stayed inside, starts from pound 1,100 every night.
The best bit
I particularly enjoyed the homely atmosphere of the hotel – it’s big enough to?have got a small-but-cosy restaurant and intimate bar, but also adequately tiny that you feel as though you are a valued guest.
The final verdict
I was travelling on business but this a beautiful, well-located hotel within walking distance associated with Buckingham Palace, Picadilly or Harrod’ersus, making it well-suited for holidaymakers also.
