OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

In west London on busy Gloucester Road - and right by the Underground station too - so in a great position to explore the capital on foot, or by public transport. The shops of Fulham Road, King's Road and Knightsbridge are a short wander away, as is Kensington Gardens. The Natural History and Science Museums are London's go-to museums, but the V&A, the terrific art and design museum, is close as is the Royal Albert Hall for concerts.

By car: the hotel is 2 hours 30 mins from Birmingham, 4 hours from Manchester and 1 hour 10 mins from Oxford. Paid private parking is available on-site.

By train: Paddington station is a 15-minute taxi ride from the hotel with connections to various UK cities. Book trains to London.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Now very much a boutique hotel, this grand-looking establishment was opened by James Bailey, a butler turned hotelier in 1876. Grade-II listed, its Victorian features include a lovely stained glass window and the original spiral staircase. Elsewhere the hotel has a thoroughly contemporary feel with each floor denoting a quintessentially English theme.

THE FACILITIES

Although a separate entity, the Bailey's is located in the same building as the Millennium Conference Centre and the Millennium Gloucester Hotel (a conference-style hotel). For those needing a workout, there's a small gym with cardio equipment and exercise bikes.

  • Two restaurants
  • Bar
  • Terrace
  • Lounge
  • Gym
  • Free Wi-Fi

BED AND BATH

The hotel offers seven categories, including suites - and all reflect the understated elegance of the rest of the hotel. Rooms subtly reflect the theme of each floor (Henley Regatta, the Botanical Gardens) and beds have very comfortable Hypnos mattresses. The neat marble bathrooms have either showers or shower/baths.

Room types: Classic Double, Luxury Family, Cosy Double, Deluxe Double, Luxury Double, Suites

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with luxury toiletries, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer

FOOD AND DRINK

The bright Bugis Street Brasserie (it's a street in Singapore) with its wooden flooring, chandeliers and large arched windows overlooking the street specialises in cuisine from China, Singapore and Malaysia. They also do a lovely afternoon tea - with champagne if required. Or try a martini or a Manhattan in the wood-panelled Bailey's Bar.

Bugis Street Brasserie: East Asian cuisine. Open daily 12-10pm. Mains from £16.

Bombay Brasserie: Indian fine dining. Open daily for dinner. Mains from £17.
