Relais & Chateaux has added London hotel 11 Cadogan Gardens to its impressive roster – the first and only London hotel within the entire collection.
There are currently 585 properties included in Relais & Chateaux and also the association carefully vets each one of these before it is added to the impeccable collection. The association was initially established in 1954 and it has been championing independent and frequently family-owned hotels and restaurants since.
The award-winning Chewton Glen in New Milton was the first-ever British hotel to become listed on the association in 1971 and now, sister hotel 11 Cadogan Gardens in London has followed in Chewton Glen's footsteps.
Philippe Gombert, President of Relais & Ch^ateaux said: “We're thrilled to count 11 Cadogan Gardens like a person in our family. This is a best example of what Relais & Ch^ateaux is: properties anchored within their region, ambassadors of the heritage, but also passionate about their craft. Your accommodation is perfectly located and can offer a delicious immersion into London for our guests.”
The charming boutique hotel is located near Sloane Square in London's affluent Chelsea neighborhood and was originally built by Lord Chelsea within the late 1800s as part of the prestigious Cadogan Estate.
It was originally comprised of four separate Victorian townhouses, but still has a traditional Victorian facade. It's as quintessentially English as you'd expect, retaining its heritage with the exquisite design seen throughout the hotel.
As along with 56 charming and well-appointed rooms and suites, the hotel includes a library, two outdoor terraces and a gym. Additionally, it houses the well-regarded restaurant Hans’ Bar and Grill, which opened this past year and it is overseen by head chef Luke Phillips.
