The launch of The Chilworth marks the first townhouse for the luxury Montcalm Hotel Group – an urban boutique retreat and little London hideaway where every detail is designed to enhance your wellbeing as well as comfort during your stay.
Conveniently located a just few minutes from Paddington station with all its city, regional and international connections, The Chilworth is set in a beautifully refurbished Georgian townhouse and provides an oasis of calm on one of the capital’s characteristic tree-lined streets, a short stroll from Hyde Park.
With an elegant yet informal atmosphere, the décor blends classical period features with sharp, contemporary design. Every detail of the guest experience has been designed to provide the ultimate in personal service, from the hotel’s very own wellbeing ambassador to the pillow menu, which can be pre-selected prior to arrival. In the restaurant, the carefully considered menus also draw on elements of health and wellbeing, reflecting a philosophy of nurturing the soul as well as the body, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is also a stylish bar for relaxing with pre- or post-dinner drinks, including signature cocktails.
The Chilworth’s compact urban spa features a jacuzzi, gym, steam room and an extensive range of treatments, as well as a yoga suite and outdoor yoga classes (weather permitting) in nearby Hyde Park, where walking tours can also be arranged.
“We’re proud to play a part in the Paddington area’s renaissance by restoring a classic English townhouse as London’s newest boutique hotel. We wanted to create somewhere our guests can feel a real sense of belonging whenever they’re in town, equally at home relaxing in the cosy bar or sociable lobby lounge as in their room,” the Montcalm management told Essential Journeys. “Enlightened luxury means looking after guests’ wellbeing too, so as well as an urban spa and gym, we’ve invested in amenities like a wellbeing ambassador, always on hand to help guests towards their lifestyle goals, even away from home.”
In a peaceful setting but with easy access to the West End, The Chilworth promises to be a popular choice for those who prefer smaller hotels with the personal touch, and a great addition to London’s boutique hotel scene.
The Chilworth’s restaurant is a bright, buzzy all-day eatery with an uncomplicated approach to food. Beautifully simple, prepared with flair, and sourced with care, from trusted growers and suppliers, it offers freshly prepared breakfasts, juices and smoothies, wholesome lunches and enticing afternoon teas and delicious dinners. The Bar offers a variety of well chosen wines, medley of local beers and intriguing cocktails as well as moreish mocktails, for the health-conscious tippler.
There is a library in the lobby, as well as seasonal outdoor yoga sessions, Hyde Park walking tours, complimentary cycle hire, complimentary WiFi, vitamin-infused coffee pods, Vitamin C infused shower in selected rooms, and vitamin drink on arrival.
