This is an elegant building offering traditional style and modern comfort. Paddington Station is nearby giving easy access to Heathrow Airport (15 minutes by Heathrow Express). Set in a listed building with a rich history, it is located in a quiet square near Hyde Park. It is a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Bayswater and Notting Hill, and just across the park from the Royal Albert Hall and Kensington's fascinating museum district.
The Duke of Leinster (pronounced "Linster") was a man of enormous wealth who invested in property, and for his London base, built a new residence on a corner plot on what is now the hotel. Sadly, the effect of an opulent lifestyle and gambling debts took their toll and his grandsons lost control of his fortune. His name now lives on at this property.
