PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

The Laslett boutique hotel embodies the same sense of community spirit and creativity as its namesake, Rhaune Laslett (founder of the Notting Hill Carnival). British brands such as Waldo Works architects, and Pinch and Race Furniture have shaped the modish interiors, and the involvement of local heroes – Biba founder-cum-artist Barbara Hulanicki, who's supplied some of the eye-catching wall candy, and Jerome Dodd of Golborne Road’s Les Couilles du Chien antique shop – ensure a true sense of place.

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: 11am. Earliest check-in, 3pm. Early arrivals can store their luggage then relax in the library or coffee shop.
A la carte breakfast options are not included in the room rate.

FACILITIES

Library, coffee shop, lounge, boutique, concierge, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: Samsung LED TV with Sky channels, a stack of classic Penguin novels, a ‘big bar’ (with full-size bottles, some snacks and London guides), desk and full-size REN bath products.

PACKING TIPS

Your Kindle can stay on your bedside table; old-school escapism is covered with a stack of Penguin classics (Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, HG Wells’ War of the Worlds) and more esoteric reads (Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love), in each room. The library by reception has a curated collection of British art and design books too.

ECO-FRIENDLY

The Henderson's seasonal, organic, fair-trade and locally sourced ingredients tick all eco-friendly boxes.

SPA

In-room beauty treatments can be arranged and must be booked in advance. Otherwise the concierge can contact one of the many stylish spas nearby. Day passes are available for a local gym (five minutes walk from the hotel), too.

ALSO

Public areas are wheelchair accessible; there’s a ramp entrance at 10 Pembridge Gardens. A Master Bedroom Double and Double room on the lower ground floor (with lift access) and a Double on the ground floor are adapted for guests with mobility issues.
Need a superlative souvenir? Cast an eye over the jewellery, prêt-à-porter pieces from Les Glorieuses, Couverture & the Garbstore's No Chemicals perfume, oils and candles, and Mrs Miller stockings for sale in the ground-floor boutique.

Rooms 

With walls studded with Barbara Hulanicki and Barry Kamen artwork, and antique objets d’art dotted throughout, the Master Bedroom Suites are larger than your average London hotel room. Some have a day-bed, semi-separate living room (or second bedroom) or dining room, and a metro-tiled bathroom with a generous bath tub and walk-in shower.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There’s no formal dining room here; the Henderson Bar moonlights as a breakfast room, café and cocktail bar throughout the day, but guests can order at the reception’s food bar and retire to the library, lounge or their room to dine. A buffet of muesli granola and freshly baked pastries and hot dishes – avocado, chilli and lime on sourdough, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon – will tempt you to untangle yourself from the sheets each morning. The Henderson bar has an array of small to slightly-less-small plates from pâté and sausage rolls to smoked-chicken salad and shepherd's pie.

Liquid Bliss 

The Henderson Bar is named after renowned Trinidadian musician Russell ‘Russ’ Henderson, and it’s a well-earned honour: he concocted its rum-laced signature cocktail. These are shaken and stirred alongside a raft of high-end bar snacks (roasted almonds, olives and cheese straws) to accompany the au fait wine and cocktail list.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Notting Hill’s legendary gatherings and offbeat boutiques will coax you from your lie-in. The district is coloured in brighter strokes than the eponymous Richard Curtis film; grand dame townhouses have a lick of carnival-coloured paint, and petite gardens and characterful old-school pubs punctuate meandering streets. Westbourne Grove and Ledbury Road are lined with petite cafés and high-street wonders such as Anya Hindmarch, Smythson and famed designer-label den Matches, interspersed with independent institutions. It’s touristy and trashy in parts, but Portobello Market’s stalls are still worth rummaging through for antique doohickeys, hand-made wearables, toys and trinkets; and you can weave in and out of designer boutiques, vintage shops and one-off pop-ups. With corsetry from What Katy Did, Sixties-inspired mens’ tailoring at Adam of London and cute-as-a-button kids’ wear from Sasti: the Portobello Green Arcade peddles serious designer wares. The Electric Cinema has super-comfortable leather armchairs, and theatre company the Print Room has taken over historic cinema the Coronet. William and Kate’s gaff, Kensington Palace, is a 10-minute walk away, flanked by pretty gardens – stop for afternoon tea in the Orangery, then roam through Kensington High Street. On August bank holiday each year, the streets become a flurry of feathers and sequins as the Notting Hill Carnival’s parades kick off street parties till late.

Transportation 

The hotel sits in Pembridge Gardens, a genteel street lined with Victorian townhouses, just a short hop from Portobello Road and Notting Hill Gate’s restaurants, bars and shops.

Planes 

From Gatwick Airport (www.gatwickairport.com), hop on the express train to Victoria, then ride the circle line to Notting Hill Gate Tube station. The Heathrow Express (www.heathrowexpress.com) arrives at Paddington, two stops away on the District or Circle lines. A taxi will take about 30 minutes from Heathrow or an hour from Gatwick.

Trains 

Notting Hill Gate Tube station is just around the corner. The District, Circle and Central lines pass through, so all corners of London are within reach.

Automobiles 

London’s Tube system may befuddle first-timers, but it’s less bewildering than navigating the traffic-swollen streets. If you must drive, there are Avis car-hire booths at both airports, but there’s no parking at the hotel. Guests can leave their car at the Q-Park on Queensway (www.q-park.co.uk), a 10-minute walk away, for £26 a day.
