As you probably know by now, London is like my second home. I don’t think there’s ever a month, or a two-week period that goes by without that 2hour 14 minute journey from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston. But this time we’d booked the lush Zetter Townhouse for a change from the average stay.
Walking up to the beautiful townhouse, we recognised from the outside this wasn’t going to be just an average two-night stay in London. Clerkenwell itself seemed like a small suburb compared to the busier areas of London. The pastel blue door was almost non-recognisable as a hotel, just the italicised name across the front in black writing gave it away – no mammoth branding or signs to be seen.
On entering the building it was like attending an old-English Mad Hatters tea party. Quirky prints filled the walls like a game or tetris, furniture cluttered the wooden flooring in different fabrics and shapes, whilst tassel light fixtures hung from the ceiling. We knew we were in for a treat, just from dodging through the sea of people in the reception enjoying spectacular cocktails!
Finding out we’d been upgraded to The Townhouse Suite, we couldn’t wait to get to our room. Fumbling down the terracotta hallway, we came to our home for the next two nights. The suite was an exceptional size, divided into two separate rooms consisting of the bedroom area (which included a four-poster bed) and a living room, complete with an open minibar – score! With oak triple wardrobes lining the walls, a plush velvet huge sofa and a sound system that filled the room with relaxing tracks from Frank Sinatra, I must admit I did spend most of my time in here especially when we needed to work for a few hours. The suite definitely beat any Starbucks or Pret we could find haha.
Now the bed was something else which, almost filing one half of the room! Dressed perfectly in white sheets with a stripe throw fitting with the interior of the room, it was just as comfy as it looks. You can tell everything had been considered in this room, down the catch door on the bedroom and bathroom wall.
Attached to the bedroom was a bathroom complete with a marble huge bath, which was exceptional after a long day in London. White and black tiles lined the wall with a 1920s Art Deco vibe – almost identical to the bathroom at my parents old house.
All in all our two-night stay was exceptional, from the super friendly staff who would bring tea of coffee to the room, to the beautiful interior of the building, I would highly recommend staying at The Zetter Townhouse in London, Clerkenwell.
