Henry’s Townhouse – Marylebone, W1
Set in the former home of Jane Austen’s favourite brother Henry, this discreet exclusive use townhouse hotel is a home-from-home in Marylebone that also feels like a smart members’ club for up to 14 guests. Full of Georgian glamour, original period features and sophisticated yet cosy spaces, it is the result of a collaboration between the owners and in-demand interior designer Russell Sage. Seven sumptuous bedrooms, all named after Jane Austen’s relatives, come with four poster beds, roll-top baths, oil paintings and antiques. Breakfast is served at the refectory table in Monsieur Halavant’s Pantry Kitchen (it’s also the spot for meetings and private dinners) while Jane’s Sitting Room is ideal for afternoon tea or simply curling up with a book. The townhouse comes complete with a private house manager, daily housekeeping, continental breakfasts and delightful fresh flowers. Chef and butler services can also be arranged. Don’t miss the first-floor landing carriage snug, based on a railway carriage, where you can squirrel away for a glass of wine, or the outdoor terrace for morning coffee looking out over the neighbourhood below.
Exclusive use from £4,950 per night
