The Cadogan Hotel, Knightsbridge
Impulse - rooms this weekend only
Breakfast and a Superior room in a five-star 19th century Knightsbridge hotel on Sloane Street
The Cadogan offers an archetypal London experience smack-bang in the centre of one of its most exclusive streets. A five-star redbrick townhouse hotel that overlooks Cadogan Gardens in upmarket Knightsbridge, The Cadogan counts Chanel, Christian Dior
and Hermes as its Sloane Street neighbours
The hotel has a stellar reputation as one of London's most prestigious places to stay and combines history, grandeur and plush (but never stuffy) interiors that are stylish but sympathetic to its 19th century beginnings. At the ripe old age of 125, the hotel was the setting for Oscar Wilde's famous arrest (in room 118) and when it comes to encounters of a saucier kind - actress Lillie Langtry, who lived there at the time, famously used it as the setting for her liaisons with King Edward VII.
Marked simply with a flag at the pristine white entrance - The Cadogan is all about discretion and saves the fanfare for inside. The hotel is well-known for its fabulous dining. With a celebrated head chef and impressive menus that champion the best of the nation’s independent producers - dinner at the hotel is guaranteed to be a real treat. They also offer that good old British essential - afternoon tea. With towering tiers of scones, sandwiches and cakes; it's a splendid affair that's too good to pass up.
