Description

Cream of the crop

Prime your palate for some film fancies, for this deceptively large Georgian mews house was formerly home to Guy Ritchie and his lady Madonna, and scenes from Layer Cake were filmed behind its quaint façade. It’s no surprise that anglophile Madge liked this two bedroom, two bathroom beauty, because the building’s environs ooze old English charm, from the cobbled streets and old carriage houses to the affluent world of South Kensington beyond. Fit for film both inside and out, this sprawling, secluded mews house is sure to tantalise and inspire. Apt surrounds, you might add, for its A-list ancestry.
Slice of life
The wide entertaining spaces and gourmet kitchen here hint at your hosts’ passionate pursuits. In their luxurious abode, an English-American couple love to dance the tango and conjure up culinary delights for their friends. The traditional English mews pub- a veritable hidden gem- just moments away, meanwhile, offers Sunday roasts that they assure us simply must be sampled.
Icing on the cake

Be beguiled by wide open spaces and original features behind the scenes of this unique home. In the open plan sitting-come-dining room, curl up on the six-seater cream sofa, bathe in the light from the three huge arched windows and enjoy a good book plucked from the floor-to-ceiling library. Pad the aged floorboards into the sleek chrome kitchen and rustle up a little something, using the high end appliances and myriad jars of spices and fancies, no doubt.
There’s post dinner lounging a-plenty to be enjoyed in the large, eclectically furnished master bedroom, with its king-size bed, plus two seater sofabed. Open the French doors and admire the old mews from the balcony, or relax before the giant, wall-mounted television. The boutique master ensuite boasts twin basins and a shower paved with limestone, and the family bathroom down the hall is similarly plush. Enjoy the super kingsize in the airy second bedroom, or split the difference and go for two singles. Here, pervasive dark wood and a gilt mirror make sleeping a little more sumptuous.
Pudding lane

There’s a cornucopia of cultural and consumer delights right on Queen’s Gate Mews’ doorstep, from Hyde Park and Kensington Palace to the shopping sanctuary of Kensington High Street. London’s world famous museums are a hop, skip and jump away, and central London is accessible in 15 minutes via nearby Gloucester Road tube station.

Damage

As part of booking with onefinestay, our guests agree to report any accidents or damage. When you arrive we secure a £1,000 hold on your credit or debit card (see 25. Pre-authorisation), and we do a thorough check of the home after each stay. If we do find damage, we’ll get in touch with you.

Extra services

We can arrange additional services to make your journey and stay with us in London exceptional. Find out more here.

Guest Services team

Unlike all those home-booking platforms, we have a local Guest Services team in London, available by phone or email 24/7 during your stay. Reach us on +44 20 3588 0600 or london.guests@onefinestay.com

Housekeeping

Our Housekeeping team traverse London cleaning and preparing homes before and after stays. We’ll clean weekly during your stay, and more frequent Housekeeping services can be arranged on request, subject to availability and a charge (see 4. Extra services).

Keys

You’ll get two sets of keys from your Meet & Greeter, along with instructions on locking up when you go out.

Lead guest

The lead guest must be at least 25 years of age.

 

 

Payment

Travel Advisors

Our Travel Advisors know our cities and neighbourhoods back-to-front, and they’re available around the clock to help you find a home that suits.

London homes

Each home listed with onefinestay is unique, and belongs to a onefinestay homeowner – whether they live there most of the year or for just a few weeks.

We’ve visited each home in person to take accurate photographs, detailed room configurations and home truths, so you can book with the same confidence you have in the best hotel brands. Our Travel Advisors are available 24/7 to help you choose a home that suits.

Air-conditioning

London’s weather is mild and most homeowners choose not to install air-conditioning. The majority of onefinestay homes in London do not have A/C, however between June and September we place fans in each bedroom for your comfort.

Bathroom electrical sockets

Many visitors to London find themselves, hairdryer in hand, searching fruitlessly for an electrical socket in the bathroom. Forgetful architects are not to blame – in fact British building regulations prohibit electrical sockets in bathrooms for safety reasons. We’ve provided hairdryers with extra long leads for your convenience.

Hobs & kettles

One of the quirks that often surprise visitors to London – in Britain the word ‘hob’ describes a ‘cooktop’, ‘stove top’ or ‘hotplate’. Most kettles in Britain are electric and need to be plugged in via the plastic base – never placed on the hob.

Home truths

Because every onefinestay home is unique, we highlight any ‘home truths’ on the listing and make sure you’re aware of them when you book.

House rules

When you arrive you’ll be given a copy of the House Rules, requests made by the homeowner, that we ask all guests to abide by when they’re in the home.

Location

For security reasons, we show only the approximate location of homes on our website. You’ll be provided with the full address (along with detailed directions) once your booking has been confirmed.

Smoking

Guests are not permitted to smoke inside any onefinestay home.

 

 

Stairs and accessibility

If you’re travelling with young or elderly guests, it’s important to make sure any accessibility needs are discussed with your onefinestay Travel Advisor before you book. Most onefinestay homes in London have at least a few steps, and many have internal stairs without elevators.

Tamper tape

When we’re readying a home for your stay we seal off some drawers, cupboards and (in some cases) spare rooms, for storing away the homeowners’ personal effects. Your Meet & Greeter will point out these places which are sealed with red ‘tamper-tape’, and we ask that you respect these private areas during your stay. Of course, we make sure there is plenty of storage space available for your things.

Your arrival to London

Travelling to an address in a city you’re not familiar with can be daunting. While onefinestay doesn’t have a hotel front desk or a big flashy sign, we have put a lot of thought and care into making your arrival as seamless as possible. And we’re always available at +44 20 3588 0600 or london.guests@onefinestay.com

Check-in and check-out

We’ll meet you at the home at your convenience any time after 4pm on your arrival date, and our standard check-out time is 11am. Early check-in and late check-out can be arranged in advance with your onefinestay Travel Advisor, subject to availability and a charge. At the end of your stay, checking out is simple – you’ll have instructions on locking up and safely depositing keys (you don’t need to meet anyone from our team) and we’ll arrive later in the day to clean and prepare for the homeowner’s return.

I.D. check and card authorisation

We’ll check the lead guest’s I.D. and secure a £1,000 hold on a matching credit or debit card which will be released once we confirm no damage was caused during your stay (see 25. Pre-authorisation for more details).

Luggage storage

If you are arriving between 12.30pm–4pm, you can choose to drop your bags at the home. We’ll arrange for your Meet & Greeter to welcome you, however please be aware that the home will not be available until check-in at 4pm. If you’re arriving much earlier, or you’d prefer not to carry your luggage from the airport, we highly recommend using our partners AirPortr. You can find more information here.

Meet & greet

One of our Meet & Greeters will be at the home to welcome you. If you’re going to be running late or early, please let us know as soon as you can so that we can reschedule your arrival appointment.

Pre-authorisation

When you arrive we secure a £1,000 hold on your credit or debit card. The amount is held by your bank until we confirm that no damage was caused during your stay. We will release the hold within five days after your departure, but it can take your bank longer to process the request from the credit or debit card company. If you do damage anything it’s always best to let us know before you leave. And once you depart, if we find any damage, we’ll get in touch immediately.
