11 Cadogan Gardens: Chelsea’s Best Kept Secret
Tucked away behind the bustling shopping haven of Sloane Square, amidst the quaint private parks of Chelsea, 11 Cadogan Gardens is one of London’s most romantic and picturesque hotels. A regal row of converted Victorian townhouses, this quintessentially British gem has recently benefitted from a full makeover this past spring; the heritage-rich property now offers an iconic, designer Bar, a homely Drawing Room, a traditional Library and six brand new individually designed suites, increasing its accommodation to 56 rooms and suites.
There is remarkable history amidst the hotel’s glamourous surroundings. Built by Lord Chelsea in the late 19th century as part of the prestigious Cadogan Estate, the townhouses were converted into a hotel which became vastly popular as a home away from home for travelling Victorian aristocrats, politicians and bon viveurs. Due to its distinctive clientele, the hotel’s sumptuous décor has evolved so that no two rooms are alike and guests are taken on a journey into the stylishly eclectic the moment they step through the doors.
Opulent and sensual, the lavish suites are the epitome of 11 Cadogan Gardens’ style and decadence. The stunning décor and use of rich colours, plush fabrics, gilt-edged mirrors and Murano glass chandeliers bring a dazzling decadence to the occasion. General Manger, Soliman Khaddour explains, “Our guests describe their stay as a journey. Step into suite number five and guests are greeted by a theatrically themed red velvet room complete with four-poster bed and ornate mirror. Return the next day and the same guest can enjoy a room that is entirely different in style, layout and themed and guests are instantly transported back to an era of glamour and elegance.”.
Distinctively British, one of 11 Cadogan Gardens signature services is their afternoon tea. The epitome of British culture with traditional finger sandwiches, freshly bakes scones and delicate pastries accompanied by a choice of tea or champagne, offer a civilised respite from the hubbub of the royal borough.
This five-star hotel, part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) group, offers an exceptional glimpse into the glory and grandeur of England. With regal spaces and stunning, panelled walkways, 11 Cadogan Gardens is a resplendent picture of a more civilised era and the true archetype of British perfection. Rooms start from £350 per night on an accommodation only basis.
