Kettners Townhouse


One night at a hotel has the equivalent excitement as a sleepover in my youthful years. Packing your bag, the excitement of staying in a beautiful crafted room, fresh sheets and sleep-for-a-week black out curtains.

Kettners Townhouse had always been high on my list of ‘hotel musts’ so staying their for New Years Eve was a special treat. As part of the Soho Group of course it was nothing short of amazing. The attention to detail and character throughout the building gave us endless delights. I mean, when house keeping turn down your room for the night and leave a champagne bucket of ice you know you’re in the right place.

The Cosy Room.

The Cosy Room, a traditionalists playground with the Roberts Revival greeting us with classical violins as we opened the door. Decked out with marble surfaces, incredible emerald green arm chair and headboard. The side table stood the TV which housed the tea pot, coffee machine and mini fridge, as well as a cocktail area fit with shaker, utensils and even a lemon and lime! Every inch of the room is curated and don’t even think about lugging toiletries across town; they have everything you could ever need. A stock full of all Cow Shed products compiling of makeup remover, cleanser, moisturisers etc and you can even choose from 12 different types of full size products in the shower. The ultimate luxury. The sink and mirror area is separate to the toilet and shower which is brilliant for getting ready meaning optimum lighting. The bed is beyond comfortable, however there is only one small rail for clothes so pack light!

Piano Bar, Say No More.

There are two main bars within Kettners Townhouse. The champagne bar, which has the beautiful central bar (brilliant for pictures) where laptops are actually forbidden after 11am you will find regulars nestled in corners their noses in novels or writing in journals, a real old world haven. But the restaurant holds a smaller bar with a piano, we spent our evening hear, sat cosy in the corner of an ox blood velvet sofa, listening to the pianist all evening. Hand on heart one of my favourite evenings spent with J to date. 

















Easy Access. 

The hotel is situated west of Covent Garden, only a short walk to Oxford Street, Leicester Square, Holborn and Piccadilly Circus. If you are looking to explore further surrounding areas it is super accessible via many tube stations.

On The Agenda.

We wanted to make the most of being in the hotel and ordered room service for dinner, which was incredible. We had a bottle of champagne in our room chilled, courtesy of the ice bucket, thank you house keeping. But there are tons of restaurants in true London style a stones throw from the hotel for you to enjoy. The room itself comes with a booklet outlining all of the best places for different styles of eating, the perfect plan for your dinner date choices.
