Why we choose The Egerton House Hotel

Intimate townhouse hotel with a personal touch; the photo gallery tells you the story

  • The art collection includes original Toulouse-Lautrec lithographs and works from Picasso and Matisse
  • The aqua-menu is perfect for rehydrating after travel
  • In-room iPods and speakers come ready to play with huge music selections

What the Egerton House lacks in size, it makes up for with, well, everything else. They take personalized service to new heights with turndown that includes individual treats, details of the following day’s weather and candles by the bathtub. They also keep a register of trusted professionals (masseuses, beauty pros, yoga and Pilates instructors) who will bring their services right to your door.

As they say, “We know what you like because we take the trouble to find out.” They’re doing something right because out of the thousands of hotels in the London area, Egerton House is regularly listed in Tripadvisor’s top spots.

What you need to know about the hotel

Egerton House is an icon of luxury and exclusivity with a surprising home-away-from-home feeling

  • The spacious Victoria and Albert Suite has a separate lounge with floor-to-ceiling French doors opening onto a private terrace
  • Personal shoppers Hiscox Mavroleon offer guests chauffeured visits to London’s top stores for a true “fashion insider” experience
  • Customers return again and again to the cozy dining room, where, if the menu doesn’t grab you, they’ll cook whatever you want

The Egerton House Hotel, built in 1843, has been meticulously refurbished with the latest technology and modern comforts—while remaining true to the original style. The luxury townhouse hotel currently offers 23 rooms and five suites; our favorites are the Garden Terrace rooms, which have French doors leading onto the terraces.

Egerton House has a bar and dining menus (though no formal restaurant), but few real facilities to speak of. So why does it consistently rank so highly with reviewers? It’s all about the extra-mile service that begins upon arrival, when you’re treated to chilled Champagne or a steaming pot of tea. In your room are fresh fruit, your favorite music, bottled water and personalized welcome cards. The royal treatment extends to every detail, every moment of your stay.

Where is it and what's nearby

Egerton House is located on a quiet tree-lined street in prestigious, fashionable Knightsbridge

  • The surrounding area includes gems like Apsley House (the magnificent former home of the Duke of Wellington) and Oscar Wilde’s house
  • The hotel’s partner company offers 30+ walking tours—from museum excursions to walks through ancient nooks and crannies—fully customized for you
  • Art and culture lovers will want to check out the world-famous Victoria & Albert Museum, Royal Albert Hall and Natural History Museum

Off the main road in London’s Knightsbridge neighborhood, Egerton House is surrounded by residential buildings and gardens. But that doesn’t mean it’s removed from the action. It’s just a short walk from Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Sloane Street and Kings Road. Many of London’s major attractions are also close: including Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, Big Ben, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey.

Fashionistas will love that fabulous shopping is within yards of the hotel. The rows of glam boutiques along Brompton Road, Sloane Street and the Kings Road are all within easy walking distance, and a short taxi ride brings you to Mayfair’s upmarket stores on Bond Street, Regent Street, South Moulton Street, Piccadilly, Savile Row and the Burlington Arcade.

How to enjoy London

From the fine art galleries of Mayfair and St James  (bring your wallet, this art is for sale) to the elegant terraces surrounding Regent’s Park, sophisticated London abounds. For an edgier side to the city, head to Soho, for the excellent restaurants

  • Explore Shepherd Market, a tiny backstreet square where London’s glitterati of Royals and A-listers go to club and dine
  • To see London from the highest vantage point, take the express lift (no elevators in these parts) to the newly opened observation platform on The Shard
  • Upmarket shopping can be found on Bond Street, South Molton Street and Savile Row. For one-offs and independents, explore the boutiques of King’s Road. Borough Market is perfect to explore stalls featuring local produce, and don’t forget the antique shops on Portobello Road.

Nowhere best captures the understated glamour, impeccable manners and intriguing idiosyncrasies of the British upper classes than the streets around Mayfair. To get up close and personal, however, you have to join in the traditions. Tea at The Ritz or Claridges is a must. (It’s even listed as a proper meal alongside breakfast, lunch and dinner on their menus). Don’t forget an appointment with your man in Jermyn Street (for exquisitely tailored shirts and suits).

For more quintessentially English experiences venture away from the central hub of Mayfair. South of the river there’s Wimbledon. Outside of the tournament, visit the tennis club. It has a museum and drips wealth. The boutiques and cafes of Wimbledon Village are worth an afternoon too. Finally, don’t forget the Queen. It would be rude not to stop by if you are in town. Buckingham Palace does tours. A tourist honeypot, but you can book exclusive tours of the State Rooms.
