An ivy-clad front door on a quiet side street marks a subtle entrance to a seriously impressive hotel. Accommodations are split between a classic Georgian townhouse and modernist coach-house, designed by noted architect Sam Stephenson. A manicured garden links the two, guarded by the resident cat. The most impressive rooms are in the townhouse, with high ceilings and period features—room 21 showcases intricate 18th-century cornices and a large marble fireplace. Breakfast is served family-style in the coach-house. Opt for the “Full Irish” or the smoked salmon, but leave room to nibble on the cranberry nut bread.
