The 51 bedrooms, set inside five Victorian mansions, are modelled after casual living rooms of various styles, from cosy 'spare rooms' to spacious master bedroom suites. Furniture by British designers Pinch and Race and a selection of curiosities feature throughout.
For smaller groups, a miniature British library and the Henderson Bar and Coffee Shop offer ample space for 'meet-ups' and 'hang-outs', as opposed to formal meetings. The latter features signature dishes created by celebrated local chef Sally Clarke.
Wi-fi: free throughout
