A cherished member of The Doyle Collection, an exclusive Irish hotel group that also includes The Kensington (see page 000) and The Marylebone (see page 000) in London, and The Westbury (see page 000) in Dublin, The Bloomsbury is a sympathetic conversion of a Grade II-listed building, originally designed in the 1930s in neo-Georgian style by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
Recently, the hotel has been respectfully redesigned following a multi-million-pound investment led by the group’s chairman, Bernie Gallagher, in collaboration with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. The transformation includes a new reception area, new suites, guest sitting room and a stunning bar called The Coral Room.
The hotel’s ever-popular Dalloway Terrace is an enchanting, colourful indoor-outdoor restaurant, while the wonderful wood-panelled Bloomsbury Club Bar is a must for a pre- or post-prandial drink. There’s a sense of calm in this hotel and an understated elegance. You feel shielded against the bustle of the outside world.
Doubles from £306
