Summary

A charming 4 star luxury boutique hotel conveniently located at the heart of South Kensington.

Introduction

Cross the threshold of The Gallery 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.

The Morris 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. There's even an original oak-cased Manxman piano and an antique bar billiards table, both in working order.

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 and Victoria and Albert Museums are literally on your doorstep as well as Harrods, fashionable Knightsbridge, and the cafes, restaurants and antiques shops of Chelsea.

The Gallery Hotel is curently being refurbished and will re-open shortly.
