I am sitting here in Sydney full of Olympic Spirit …. no not in London !!! Tickets scarce and crowds crazy, so very happy to travel when London returns to normal. However should I be over there, I have decided that the Firmdale Hotel Group do have the most exciting properties to choose from …. and in all the right locations …. Covent Garden, Haymarket, Soho, Knightsbridge, South Kensington and my favourite Dorset Square. What could be more divine than this Regency terrace overlooking a leafy square.
Kit Kemp loves colour and plays with fabric in a very adventurous way. Each property is unique … in fact, each guestroom is unique, from what I can see. She combines slick contemporary with traditional pieces and details, very brave indeed.
Firmdale call it ‘fresh contemporary English style”. I have to say that I have not always been sure that it all works but looking at the newest addition in Dorset Square I have been won over. Either my taste has changed or I have taken time to ‘just get it’.
I acknowledge they are quirky, however the attention to detail is exceptional, the furniture and furnishings are beautiful and I am sure the experience would be pure 5 star.
Dorset Square is where I would be staying … just a short walk to Marylebone High Street, an area I love with its gorgeous shops and cafes … oh so civilised compared to the rat race of Oxford Street not so far away.
Would love some feedback on any of the Firmdale properties ….
