Situated in the heart of Holborn, this impressive hotel was originally built from 1912–1914 and designed by H Percy Monckton in an ostentatious Edwardian style. Today, the interior design is striking, stylish and unconventional in parts. 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. The contemporary accommodation is luxurious with many super features – 46” LED TVs, Nespresso coffee machines, a sound system with iPod and iPhone docking stations, pillow selection and twice-daily housekeeping services; the impressive suite includes even more facilities.
