The Gallery Hotel, London

The Gallery Hotel

8 10 Queensberry Place

Four star Gallery Hotel, London, is a haven of quiet elegance it is also a living tribute to the art and artists of Victorian times. Yet when staying here you are never far from the very best that modern London has to offer. Cross the threshold of 8-10 Queensberry Place, and you enter a world which the eminent artists of the Victorian era would recognize instantly. There's a genuinely warm feeling of welcome in the mahogany panelled reception, lobby and lounge - the latter replete with original artworks, an imposing Jacobean Revival chimney piece, plump sofas and discreet bar. Old kilims adorn side tables, an Ottoman theme repeated in the rich pile carpeting throughout. Everything, from the oriental porcelain in the lobby to the furniture and decor of the aptly named Morris Room, has been expertly selected. William Morris, Rossetti, Lord Leighton, would surely feel at home in such surroundings. As do our discerning guests.
