No, it is forbidden to smoke anywhere inside the building. You may smoke outside the hotel entrance.

However we have a special room, the SUPERIOR Double room, which has an outdoor terrace, so you may smoke on your private outdoor terrace as long as you close the balcony doors so the smoke smell does not come inside.

No lift / elevator, and no wheelchair access or accessible rooms – due to our historic grade II listed building status, unfortunately it was not possible to adapt this small building to include these. Staying here is like living in a traditional four level townhouse with stairs, just like many London townhouses and the other neighbours on our street. Walking up stairs keeps us fit and healthy. We also offer assistance to help you carry luggage.

No restaurant or bar – we are a small hotel with basic facilities therefore not able to offer this, however we are conveniently located in a great area with plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs just across the road from the hotel.
