Stylish UK breaks
Getting itchy feet? We've found five gorgeous hotels around the UK that are perfect for an autumn break...
Dean Street Townhouse, London
Here's a little secret. At this hip Soho bolthole there’s one room – the aptly named Broom Cupboard – you can bag for just £90, if you book well ahead. Opened in 2009, this small, friendly hotel is part of the Soho House group and exemplifies its trademark style of marrying cool and comfortable. All 39 rooms come with a rainforest shower, kingsize bed and big bottles of Cowshed spa products. Some rooms are tiny, with a ship’s cabin feel, while others are made for rock-star abandon with a four-poster bed and antique-style bath. Not that you’ll be staying in much – this is the perfect base for a night on the town with the West End’s theatres and restaurants close by. Kick off with a cocktail at the hotel’s clubby Dining Room next door, which bangs home the eternal message of Soho: only go there if you want to enjoy yourself – thoroughly.
