Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Montagu Place - Swanky Room

I've always loved the intimacy of townhouse hotels, there's something warm and inviting about them. Montagu Place is no exception to that, except it offers more. Located on a quiet strip of Marylebone and around 10 minutes from Baker Street station, it's not a renowned hotel, and that adds to its private appeal.

With 16 cleverly designed bedrooms, you'll find a modern take on classic décor and experience a foretaste of luxury without the expensive price tag. A swanky room (one of the best at hotel) costs £260 per night.

For that price, you'll get an good size room with an executive feel. The colour scheme of soft oatmeal, golden browns and dark chocolate is rich and relaxing whilst the space is complete with all technology essentials. There's Wi-fi connection, a DVD player with a vast selection of films available to borrow at reception, completely free. As a big fan of interior design, I fully appreciated the gorgeous damask curtains, the contemporary fabric bedhead and the velour bed covers.

Swanky Bathroom

In the bathroom, I was pleasantly surprised to see more luxury by way of Molton Brown spa products, a large standalone bath and a walk in power shower. But for me, the best part of the layout, was the twin sinks - such a good idea!

Elsewhere, the hotel continues with its classic meets modern feel. The lounge featured black and white artwork, wooden sculptures and again, rich fabrics throughout. The dining area is cosy in its simplicity, and despite only serving continental breakfast, I felt quite at home sipping on a tea and enjoying a croissant with a complimentary copy of vogue magazine.

What's very good about Montagu Place is the balance between homely appeal and boutique chic. The facilities are ideal for both businessman and family alike. It's not the place to go if you're a stickler for a turndown service, but having said this, the little extras like the DVD collection and a copy of vogue with your coffee do make up for that. You'll love this hotel, if you prefer to simply kick off your shoes and feel right at home.

  1. Ondo Lady Said,

    Very glam hotel and I really like the bathroom. It is so tranquil yet very sparse at the same time.
