London sees the arrival of The Bermondsey Square Hotel, an independent boutique hotel set in the heart of London’s vibrant Bermondsey created by Bespoke Hotels, the people behind the re-launch and extension of Home House and the latest addition to Bespoke’s eclectic collection of fine English hotel.Designed by acclaimed designer David Gabriel, The Bermondsey Square Hotel is “elegant with an edge” and fused with an English eccentricity. It sits in the heart of the creative community of Bermondsey which Vogue describes as “a destination for South London’s most stylish shoppers.”
Bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully appointed and designed for maximum comfort. Beds are set at an angle so low level headboards house desks so you can watch TV across the room whilst checking into your laptop. The Shower/Wet rooms are an event as each blissful bathroom experience is guaranteed with unique ‘rain’ showers, big enough for two, from Hans Grohe that transport you from your urban environment to an invigorating waterfall.
Using a palate of reds, greens and black, the interiors nod to the 60’s in South London. Referencing the iconic 60’s, the hotel’s four rooftop suites are aptly named Lily, Ruby, Judy and Lucy. Lucy even has ‘her’ own private hot tub where you can enjoy panoramic views from the London Eye, to the Gherkin and even ‘Crystal Palace.
The theme continues with in-house restaurant ‘Alfie’s Kitchen, Bar and Deli’, run by Mark Taylor who has achieved AA three rosette standards and previously run the kitchen at Manor House Hotel, Castle Combe and Pennyhill Park, Surrey. This 90 cover inside (and 120 al fresco seat outside) restaurant will serve the best of English to the best of Bermondsey. On the doorstep of foodie mecca Borough Market, Alfie’s Kitchen will offer the highest quality, locally sourced produce. Championing good, hearty English fayre, the menu will rotate seasonally, with quirky additions, from mustard sommelier (yes you read it here first!) to jam tart menu’s, referencing the once famous jam making of the area. On the first floor resident DJ’s will play in the B2 club members bar whilst slick mixologist’s conjure up cocktails, to help you slide across that dancefloor.
It’s proximity to the Tower and London Bridges, puts Bermondsey Square in a prime position. Close enough to the city for business trips but just far enough away to immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of the surrounding areas. The Bermondsey Square Hotel promises you not only a fabulous stay in a chic environment but also to look after your every need the minute you check in. From Alfie’s Kitchen on the ground floor up through all 75 rooms and top floor suites, the hotel is definitely the place to wake up to…......to book your wake up call….......
