The Wellesley is an art deco style boutique hotel set in a 1920s heritage townhouse. Boasting a fashionable location in Knightsbridge the boutique hotel offers suites with uniterrupted views of Hyde Park. This is a glamorous place: a courtesy Rolls Royce is provided for all guests, a doorman with a top hat and a butler service for packing and unpacking. Interiors are clearly inspired by the Jazz Age with recently reworked ’20s-era design materials, decorative hardwood fixtures, elegant archways, gleaming surfaces and a high-contrast lighting scheme.
Guest rooms are as opulent, with chic gold and silver-hued décor, Italian marble baths, black and white photos of old-time movie stars, and divans meant for lounging. Each room is also equipped with a Samsung tablet for guests to use. Penthouse suites come with contemporary fire places and gorgeously equipped dining areas.
The Oval Restaurant celebrates a fine dining experience; the menu is inspired by Italian cuisine and it features exquisite dishes made of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Guests can enjoy a special selection of the finest cognac and whisky in the charming Crystal Bar. The Jazz Lounge offers evening live music - from Thursday to Saturday - and showcases both established and up-and-coming artists in an intimate style and atmosphere. Afternoon tea is available daily and it is accompanied by live piano music.
