The Willett Hotel is very much a dignified, private Victorian residence and little has been done to alter this. No elevator; no noise, nothing to spoil your leisurely stay. Interesting features include the reception area’s ornately carved Dutch bed over which stands a handsome gilt ormolu clock. Equally noteworthy are a stained glass mosaic, some impressive paintings and Victorian chandeliers, the latter reflecting the opulence of London yesteryear. Testimony to the unique appeal of The Willett Hotel is its high proportion of ‘regulars’ – guests who come back to London, some for fifteen years! Come to The Willett Hotel once and you’ll be returning… like an old friend.
With the green of Hyde Park to the north and the blue of the River Thames to the south, Chelsea has one of the more enviable locations in London. The industrial wasteland was renovated and now incorporates glamorous apartments, high class shops and restaurants, alongside an extensive marina. Previously the domain of writers and painters, a certain Bohemian air still attracts a few artists. The Chelsea Flower Show attracts thousands of visitors every year and brings life and bustle to the normally quiet residential area.
All these spacious and elegantly furnished rooms include a telephone, Tea / Coffee making facilities, television, Hair Dryer and a room safe. Limited room service (until 10:30 pm), dry cleaning and laundry service is also available.
