Loved our stay at this cool quirky little hotel! Located right in the heart of central London! Cocktails were very nice if a little expensive and the breakfast was tasty! Decor in the rooms were very typically English with all modern amenities! Very friendly staff also, would recommend

Has that intimate, private-club-atmosphere. Very friendly staff, hostess and manager. Very impressive cocktail list and bartenders who know their craft. It is not far from Oxford Street's main shopping area, but two blocks away from all the hectic shoppers. The nice townhouse decor is certainly a plus as well.

My husband and I stayed at the Zetter Townhouse for our 10th wedding anniversary in November 2016. The hotel is lovely and cosy and the staff really welcoming. The entrance is via the bar which was so welcoming with its roaring fires. Our room was upgraded and there was a bottle of fizz awaiting us which was a lovely surprise....

Small and intimate hotel, located on the West side, near Parliament and other focal points of interest. Enter lobby from street... Very cordial greeting... Lounge with Fireplaces, in a very rustic setting..Planked Wood tables, candles, and barista bar.. Food menu all day consists of light fare, with an Italian influence, at that... Breakfast has 2 only egg choices. One with...

Stuffed with pretty antique knickknacks and welcoming armchairs, the crowded Georgian parlour at Zetter’s Townhouse Marylebone is the perfect setting for a little afternoon indulgence. Opt for the Aunt Wilhelmina menu to dine on ladylike treats such as smoked salmon with herb crème fraiche or egg mayonnaise on brioche - or go all out with the Uncle Seymour, featuring Lincolnshire...

I've had a fair few afternoon teas and sadly this isn't one which I would rate highly. The one thing that was good were the two options on afternoon tea. One was sandwich based and the other was a ham sandwich, pork pie, sausage roll and scotch egg combo. I chose this option and it was a nice variation but...

My husband and I were spending a Saturday night in London. I've read about The Zetter Townhouse and figured this would be a good weekend to try it out. Location: Marylebone - We used to live in Marylebone and wanted something in the neighborhood. It's in a great location and very central. Arrival/Departure: It's a bit chaotic when you arrive/check...

The Marleybone hotel is delightful, immaculate, gorgeous, and cozy. It is elegant and sophisticated without any pretension or snobbery. It is like a little perfect nest. But the staff are what really make this place ideal. They are attentive and kind, and they always go above and beyond. The first time we went there I ended up with a migraine,...

Decided on afternoon tea at this establishment as the reviews in the Olive magazine were excellent so pre-booked our table. Outside the townhouse looks charming and perfectly manicured. Step inside and you won't be disappointed from the quirkiness ....into the front room it's like stepping back in time of an elderly Aunt's parlour ....charming and cosy. The staff are all...

Celebrating a C25 with my family and Maddi was excellent quality and value. So quirky it suited us with cocktails too many teas and a host of light tasty savories followed by light delicate patisserie. The best are the weird and wonderfull patrons as you people watch eat drink and relax in old style victorian townhouse full of delighting memorabilia....

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone is the second addition to The Zetter Group's Townhouse family. The 24-bedroom Georgian townhouse and cocktail lounge enjoys an enviable location on Seymour Street in fashionable Marylebone close to shopping emporium Selfridges. Feeling more like the private home of an eccentric relative than a conventional hotel, the property includes a spectacular rooftop apartment with a bath on the roof terrace. The cocktail bar is one of the best in London (5* TimeOut) and serves light bites and tasty supper bowls alongside the cocktails. ... more   less
