Opening 14 August 2015
Last night we went to the opening of The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone which officially opens its doors on Friday. The 24 bedroom Georgian townhouse is sexy yet cosy, eccentric yet inviting and definitely feels more like a home than a hotel – but that’s the idea. Whilst the original Clerkenwell outpost is modelled as the home of Zetter’s Great Aunt Wilhelmina, this is the home of Wicked Uncle Seymour. The interior designer, Russell Sage, was inspired by Sir John Soane’s architectural collections and the hotel is crammed full with pieces ‘massed during Uncle Seymour’s European Grand Tour’. There are seven categories of rooms although our top pick would definitely be the Rooftop Apartment which occupies the whole of the top floor with its own private staircase, dressing room and roof terrace with an outdoor bath. On the ground floor is Seymour’s Parlour, a cocktail lounge open from breakfast to evening with food by Chef Bruno Loubet. From the group that owns The Zetter Hotel, The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell and Grain Store, this is a great spot – whether it’s for breakfast, cocktails or a bed for the night.
