Artist Residence Hotel – London…

Artist Residence Hotel London

A few weeks ago, Dan and I stole a night away in London.  I had arranged a meeting with Pinterest the following morning, so we chose to combine that with an overnight stay at the Artist Residence. After hearing really good things about this boutique hotel, we couldn’t wait to get there.

Arriving after dark, we were shown to our room – The Loft.  On the top floor of this Georgian town house, the climb up the steps was worth it.  A beautiful ‘industrial inspired’ room, with a large bed, en suite bathroom and luxurious touches.

The day we arrived was election day and being based in Pimlico, with Westminster just down the road, we could feel the energy of such a night all around us.  It felt strange to be in London, when all eyes were on here.

Exhausted from my journey, I ran the bath deep, and filled it with bubbles. The bathroom in the Loft room was officially my ‘dream bathroom’. A huge art deco style tub, which was so big, I felt I could swim!  Soft white robes hung from pegs across the rustic wood panelling, and on the marble shelf along side the bath sat a row of aromatherapy bath products from Bramley, for us to use during our stay.

I opted for a bubble bath, while Dan laid on the bed and listened to the news and the exit polls. The bathroom is open plan to the bedroom, so although we were being separate we were still together and able to enjoy a glass of wine.

The staircase is full of beautiful art, prints and furniture.  It felt like steps to a gallery space.  In particular I fell deeply in love with an orange velvet chair – sitting here for a moment to dream of it my own home.

For breakfast I had soft poached eggs on sour dough toast and Dan opted for the full English.  Washed down with several flat whites.  The industrial theme was carried on into the restaurant and down into the basement where there was a lounge room, private supper dining space and bar.

Sadly, Dan and I packed up to leave.  Our short few hours at the Artist Residence hotel was wonderful, it just wasn’t long enough!  We must come back very soon.

Thank you to Artist Residence for letting up stay in the Loft room – your hospitality was out of this world.

  • I had a little chuckle to myself when you wrote ‘and Dan opted for the full English’… I can’t think of a time when I’ve read a blogged hotel stay and the chap hasn’t opted for that! Every time we’re in a hotel, my husband does too. Men, eh?!!

    Looks lovely. I don’t think I even like orange and yet that lovely rust chair…
