A short walk from Hyde Park, this opulent boutique bolthole offers stunning views over leafy Westbourne Terrace. Once described as the ‘quite the finest street in London’, it faces St James Church, where in 1884 Oscar Wilde married Constance Lloyd. Three mid-Victorian, Grade II-listed townhouses, restored to the charm and allure of their original architecture, have melded into one to create Roseate Hotels & Resorts’ London outpost. Inside, it’s all Victorian furniture and oil paintings handpicked and curated by Jonty Hearnden, presenter of BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. The result feels elegant yet homely, rooted in the past yet cool and sophisticated, with 48 rooms and suites bursting with period features but also offering the latest cutting-edge technology. Settle down for drinks in the Hyde Bar, whose food menu offers dishes that complement rather than dominate the drink.

The stunning view over leafy Westbourne Terrace.
The Roseate House London elevates the most characteristic of British dining traditions with the Afternoon Tea at the Hyde Bar. It can begin with a glass of sparkling Laurent Perrier champagne or a cocktail from the bar’s award-winning mixologist. The invigorating aromatic brew is further complemented by the selection of fine sandwiches and homemade scones; accompanied by the peerless Cornish clotted cream, homemade strawberry jam and The Hyde’s lemon curd, which is a house speciality.
