About the accommodation: Five adjoining Victorian townhouses converted into a stylish boutique hotel, part of the Living Rooms group. There are 51 beautiful rooms & suites, all designed with high attention to detail. The hotel reflects Notting Hill’s chilled personality with tasteful bursts of fun.
Location: The Laslett is right behind Notting Hill Gate tube station in West London. This affluent area is known for it’s grand white stucco terraces and pretty private gardens. It’s easy to reach South Kensington’s museums on foot, or hop onto the tube to be in Soho in less than 10 minutes.
Things to do: The Mall Tavern [71 Palace Gardens Terrace] serves up a fantastic Sunday roast, just a few minutes walk away, or check out The Shed [122 Palace Gardens Terrace] for seasonal British dishes. Egg fans unite at Eggbreak [30 Uxbridge Street] where, yep, you can eat all the eggs you want. Catch a film at Electric Cinema [191 Portobello Road], followed by a walk around Kensington Gardens before retreating to The Laslett’s own Henderson Bar.
Why is it on the wishlist? Love a hotel that isn’t afraid to rock a good grey wall.
Address: 8 Pembridge Gardens, Notting Hill, London, W2 4DU
