A haven of tranquillity from the hustle and bustle of Central London, this luxury boutique hotel comprises of three restored, mid-19th century, Grade II listed townhouses originally built in 1842. The Hotel’s bar, The Hyde, has been impeccably restored to retain the grace and charm of its original Victorian architecture.
Fashioned in the style of an immaculate aristocratic drawing room, The Hyde is a real treat for the eyes. Adorned with velvets, gilded mirrors, oil paintings and chandeliers, it exudes sophistication without pretentiousness.
What a wonderful surprise. I was looking for something quick for a business lunch before catching the train at Paddington and randomly chose Hyde Restaurant. Then I discovered this quaint, elegantly-styled hidden little place that was not only comfortable and quiet but also has a great bar and cocktail menu with fantastic food. The scallop ceviche melted in the mouth and the steak tartare was to die for. Everything perfect, beautifully plated. Service was top class, efficient and effluent without being too obtrustive. I was just sorry that I didn't have more time for dessert or to enjoy it more. Next time I will, for sure!
