Discover the newly transformed Chelsea Townhouse, a luxurious haven in SW3, where history, culture, and style converge in the heart of Cadogan Gardens.

Just moments away from Sloane Square and the King's Road, The Chelsea Townhouse, a newly transformed addition to the Iconic Luxury Hotels collection, stands as a testament to the history, culture, and style of southwest London. This carefully curated oasis pays homage to the neighbourhood's legacy, blending classic elegance with botanical charm in the heart of Cadogan Gardens.

A Tale of Transformation

The Chelsea Townhouse has arisen from the cherished legacy of The Draycott, a beloved institution renowned for its homemade shortbread and an extensive collection of leather-bound Wodehouse classics. This metamorphosis sees three Victorian townhouses connected by hidden corridors and secret passageways. Home to both snug attic rooms reminiscent of a writer's sanctuary, as well as opulent suites overlooking the lush private garden square, Chelsea Townhouse offers a peaceful urban escape, providing a serene backdrop for your stay. What’s more? The ground-floor suites reveal an autumnal wonderland, embracing you with the rich, earthy scents of fallen leaves and the warm hues of autumn foliage.

In a city flooded with modern hotel openings, The Chelsea Townhouse distinguishes itself as a quintessentially British property. Less a hotel, and more a visit to a well-heeled friend's residence. Botanical motifs interlace with the classic decor, with country landscapes and floral watercolour illustrations scattered all around the hotel.

At The Chelsea Townhouse, you won't find a traditional restaurant. Instead, indulge in delightful bites served in the downstairs salon, or retreat to the cosy library where a crackling log fire and a collection of literature beckon for postprandial relaxation. And if you venture beyond the hotel's confines, the nearby Pavilion Road hosts a treasure trove of restaurants such as Hans' Bar and Grill, a 5 minute stroll from the property. The staff also recommend a reservation at the close-by 11 Cadogan Gardens (the only Relais & Chateaux property within London), to enjoy a quintessentially British afternoon tea.

Exploring SW3

Despite its serene facade, The Chelsea Townhouse positions you perfectly to explore the vibrant neighbourhood of SW3. Just moments away, you'll find yourself at Sloane Square and the illustrious King's Road, famous for its fashionable boutiques, artisanal cafes, and upscale restaurants. 

Art galleries, such as the renowned Saatchi Gallery, showcase contemporary masterpieces, while nearby museums like the Chelsea Physic Garden and the National Army Museum offer glimpses into the area's history and natural beauty. For those seeking a bit of greenery, the Royal Hospital Chelsea's enchanting gardens, home to the famous Chelsea Flower Show, provide a tranquil escape in the heart of the city.

In the evenings, Chelsea comes alive with an array of entertainment options. Catch a classic play at the Royal Court Theatre or enjoy live music at one of the district's many venues. The Chelsea Townhouse's strategic location ensures that you're at the centre of it all, making it the perfect destination for those who want to experience the vibrant, cultured, and quintessentially London spirit of SW3.
