Situated in the heart of Holborn, this impressive hotel was originally built in 1912, and designed by H. Percy Monckton in a flamboyant Edwardian style. Interior design by Tony Chi is striking, stylish, and unconventional in parts, and so combines a London residential feel which is wholly sympathetic to its many heritage features. Spacious public areas include the very popular Scarfes Bar, Holborn Dining Room and the elegant Mirror Room salon, complete with stunning flower displays, where afternoon tea is served. Modern contemporary accommodation is luxurious with many super touches, and includes an impressive range of suites.
