The Mayfair Townhouse, Mayfair, London
Alice in Wonderland and Oscar Wilde meet at this Mayfair hotel spread out over 15 Georgian townhouses along swanky Half Moon Street, the setting of Wilde's farcical comedy The Importance of Being Earnest. Interiors seek to echo the flamboyance of the time, with witty, humorous designs, including a playful art collection adorning the walls. The hotel's motif - a fox - is woven throughout the hotel, with decorative fox-shaped door sculptures and children's fox-themed bathrobes a subtle nod to the hotel group's countryside properties (sister hotels include Cliveden House and Chewton Glen). At the Dandy Bar, the heart and soul of the hotel, experienced mixologists shake up outstanding cocktails for hotel guests and a local crowd, while the basement breakfast room, decorated with quirky works of art, doubles as a co-working space.
Excellent, central location - it doesn't get much better than this. Despite being in the heart of London, Half Moon Street exudes an aura of peace and tranquillity, tucked away off the bustling thoroughfare that is Piccadilly.
The hotel is in Mayfair, brushing shoulders with Hyde Park and Green Park. Oxford Street and the West End are a short walk away.
By car: the hotel is 4 hours from Manchester and 2.5 hours from Bristol.
By train: Green Park tube is 3 mins' walk away; London Marylebone is a 10-min taxi ride. thetrainline.com

The hotel suits a smart crowd seeking a playful Mayfair bolthole, where they can delve into a whimsical world exuding charm and flair. We loved the bold and lively décor in the basement Club House, with its witty fox themed paintings, boxes of butterflies and cosy leather banquettes.

Laidback, sophisticated vibe at the bar. Fun, quirky décor in the basement Club Room.
