I wrote a couple of weeks ago about the fabulous Ham Yard Hotel – a favourite on our recent trip to London. Today is the turn of the smaller, may I say cooler and also very amazing High Road House in Chiswick in West London.
We had a delicious Saturday brunch here and loved it so much that we have vowed that next time we are DEFINITELY booking a room – the kids can stay at Grandad’s.
High Road House is part of the Soho House group and is part members club/part hotel and while it has been open for a while, it has recently been given an overhaul by Alexander Waterworth Interiors. Think London art scene meets mid-century cool with a slightly industrial and moody vibe. It just works and I loved it.
The Club bar where we ate is a beautiful space – amazing high ceilings, lots of textures and mixed finishes all around quite a monochrome palette. See that brass wall shelving behind the bar? Stunning hey?
The bedrooms continue with the mid-century feel. Lots of the furniture was sourced from London 20th century specialists and it all feels unique and special and individual, kind of like you’re staying at a very grand friend’s place I guess – nothing mass or commercial here.
The shaker pegs around the wall are a perfect touch and the toiletries are from Cowshed – divine!
Some of the rooms have roll-top baths in the bedroom, one of my all time dreams for a grown up haven of my own (one day…..)
I love that there are some rooms that are called “Tiny” which are pint sized and budge friendly – what more could you need than the picture below for a gorgeous night’s sleep?
Chiswick is one of my favourite areas of London – close to all the action in the centre of town but a really strong local community and beautiful, beautiful leafy London streets to wander.
Oh – and it’s super handy for Heathrow too!
