Each of the Regency rooms have been individually designed. Antiques, classic fabrics and original paintings have been used to create a very traditional English decor. The attention to detail is clear as soon as you enter the hotel. The hotel offers a range of accommodation from double bed rooms to four poster bed suites and King junior suite.
The building is one of the historic Regency townhouses that surround the tree-filled gardens of Dorset Square, finished in traditional english red brick and white stucco. In 1787, Thomas Lord, founder of the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) chose Dorset Square to lay down a cricket ground, which in 1814, moved a mile north to what is now known as London's famed Lord's Cricket Ground.
The hotel has one restaurant, The Potting Shed. With mountains of terracotta pots and seed boxes, The Potting Shed looks just how you would imagine. It serves modern English cuisine with a selection of Southern European too.It's located on the lower ground but enjoys natural day light and a little garden/patio area. Open Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner, Saturday for dinner and Sunday for lunch. Breakfast is served everyday.
The reception area is small, but so is the hotel. It's very traditional in style and is decorated using dark wood, original oil paintings and plenty of cricket period memorabilia. There is a comfortable, lovely reading room adjacent to the main reception area.
