London welcomes its newest boutique hotel just in time for the holiday season. The Chelsea Townhouse, located on Chelsea’s exclusive Cadogan Gardens, sits within proximity to its sister hotel, 11 Cadogan Gardens, and joins the Iconic Luxury Hotels portfolio.
The hotel, formerly Draycott Hotel, underwent extensive renovations and a thoughtful redesign by Gary Kellett. The 26-key property is set across three Victorian red-brick townhouses connected by hidden corridors and staircases, providing guests with unique suites and guestrooms overlooking the private garden square. Guests also have access to this private garden during their stay.
Guestrooms and suites boast marble fireplaces, ornate crown moldings, antique-style artwork and more of that timeless charm guests will come to love during their stay. Four apartment-style suites come equipped with a kitchenette, which can come pre-stocked with artisanal ingredients from nearby Pavilion Road. Each room also comes with a minibar stocked with locally sourced and complimentary goodies including a welcome Chelsea Bun. Ruark radios, Harrison Spinks beds and GHD hair dryers are also included in accommodations.
The Chelsea Townhouse also features a relaxed dining salon on the ground floor, perfect for breakfast, brunch and late-night aperitifs. The hotel also offers an all-day, eat-anywhere menu for lunch and supper, complete with homestyle comfort food, international wines and delicious cocktails. Guests of The Chelsea Townhouse also have access to the facilities of 11 Cadogan Gardens, including a private gym.
