Hotels in South Kensington, London
The 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.
The Morris room, your drawing room, evokes the Arts & Crafts style popularised by the great Victorian painter and designer. Here are the arbutus wallpaper, the tulip and lily carpet, plus furniture of the period. Theres even an original oak-cased Manxman piano and an antique bar billiards table, both in working order. This room, by the way, is a no smoking area.
The Gallery has thirty-four guest rooms with en suite bathroom and shower. The two master suites, Rossetti and Leighton, are furnished with the individuality and refinement befitting their names. Each has its own roof terrace, jacuzzi bath, and CD and DVD players are provided a selection of classical CDs are available from reception.
At the Gallery you can relax in an atmosphere of comfort and culture while being close to some of London's finest attractions. The Science, Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums are literally on your doorstep. Likewise Harrods, fashionable Knightsbridge, and the cafes, restaurants and antiques shops of Chelsea.
Where business is concerned, The Gallery thinks of everything. Guest rooms have two direct dial telephones with data ports. The laptop user benefits from an ADSL link in the public areas, allowing 24-hour internet access. There is a boardroom-style meetings room (for up to fifteen persons) with its own computer and printer; also full visual aid facilities. And especially worth noting, the Gallery is within easy reach of two major exhibition centres: Olympia and Earls Court.
