Can we let you in on a little secret? Just around the corner from Sloane Square is one of London’s most beautiful hidden gems – No. 11 Cadogan Gardens Hotel. Listed by The Times last month as one of the Top Ten Romantic Hotels in Britain.
Imagine a French boudoir with lots of dark wood and plush fabrics, with a stylish bar favoured by some of the city’s low-key A-listers, a restaurant that has earned itself a loyal following for its divine Italian food, and sumptuously decorated rooms.
All of the suites are individually designed but our favourite, especially for romance, is the Velazquez, with its regal four-poster bed and acres of red velvet curtains.
B&B doubles are from £300 B&B; the Velasquez Suite is from £400 B&B (020 7730 7000, no11cadogangardens.com).
