11 Cadogan Gardens
Set in the heart of the prestigious borough of Chelsea, 11 Cadogan Gardens is a luxury five-star hotel in a truly unbeatable location. Set just a few minutes’ walk from Sloane Square and a stone’s throw from the lavish department stores of Knightsbridge, 11 Cadogan Gardens dates back to the 19th century and was originally four separate Victorian townhouses. This accounts for the hotel’s unique and fascinating interior, which is an amalgamation of winding corridors, palatial suites and grand staircases.

Rooms range from petite spaces to beautiful signature suites, which have been decked out with antique furniture and four-poster beds.
As well as this, the hotel is home to a fantastic cosmopolitan restaurant that serves both day visitors and residents.

The selection of mains encompasses fish, meat and vegetarian dishes as well as lunchtime light bites. The prawn and mussel linguine – served in a mouth-watering chilli, garlic and white wine sauce – is a fi rm favourite, the vegetarian herb crumpet is a creative fusion of sweet and tangy flavours, and the grilled steaks are always cooked perfectly to your liking.
