Hotel Overview

“Spanning two townhouses in Eccleston Square, this family-run hotel has technology down to a tee. The 39 bedrooms – decorated in shades of black, grey and white – were all designed with the latest gadgets in mind, from a filtered fresh air system to smartphones (with free international calls) and iPads, which double up as a digital butler. Guests benefit from the same all singing, all dancing features in all room types, from the super-comfortable Hästens beds (with massage setting) to 3D TVs (over 100 films and 3D glasses are available). The hotel does serve food, but with so many places to try in the area there are endless options or, order in food from nearby restaurants straight to your room (via the iPad, of course!). Guests can use the exclusive residents’ square across the road. Ideal for business and leisure alike, this is a peaceful spot in a well-positioned part of town.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Located on a beautiful quiet residential square of white Georgian town houses, it’s hard to believe that Eccleston Square Hotel is also conveniently just a five-minute walk from the train, tube and bus services at Victoria Station.

Central to each room is a handmade, electronically adjustable Swedish Hästens bed, blissfully wrapped in divine Italian bed linen to offer the best night’s sleep. Rooms feature lots of exciting tech panels for functions like closing the curtains and adjusting the lighting. Then the SmartGlass bathroom walls are popular, they offer the ultimate in privacy at the flick of a switch.

Guests can make complimentary international calls to mobiles and landlines from their room’s Handy mobile phone – which is also loaded with unlimited 4G and maps, so is a very handy navigational tool. Concierge requests can be made on the in-room iPad, or if preferred, attentive staff are on hand to attend to all requests for assistance. On the room’s iPad there is also menu facility with over 100+ complimentary 3D movies which can be watched on the in-room 3D TV screens.

There is a complimentary mini-bar for all guests who book directly with the hotel, and everyone appreciates the handy Nespresso machine and 24-hour tea-pot service. Also, uniquely, guests at the hotel are permitted free access to Eccleston Square’s private residential gardens, which feature a tennis court and beautiful spaces, surrounded by some of the most incredible blooms.

What is there to do in the area?
Eccleston Square Hotel is the former palatial home to queen Victoria’s granddaughter, princess Victoria, and is just a couple of doors away from the former home of Sir Winston Churchill.

Hamilton theatre is just a few steps away from the hotel as is the new Nova SW1 dining quarter, featuring greats like Helena Puolakka’s restaurant Aster (Finnish/French fusion).

Just off Elizabeth Street is the all-new Eccleston Yards, a hub for creative enterprise, commerce and co-working. Really interesting independent brands are queuing up to be offered a permanent residency at the yards. So far residents include Tailor Made, a super high-tech suit maker, Barry’s Gym which offers the best work out in the world and SMUK with its revolutionary holistic approach to beauty therapies.

A grand—though not intimidating—Georgian townhouse a couple of blocks from Belgravia, London’s poshest neighborhood, just south of Victoria Station. It caters to tech fiends, and was specifically built as one of the most advanced hotels around.

Eccleston Square Hotel

The Eccleston Square Hotel sits pretty on the garden square it’s named after, less than five minutes’ walk from Victoria Station. This sleek hotel is hidden just off the beaten track in central London. High-tech gadgets enhance your stay, but not at the cost of a good bed and professional service.
