One of our ‘must-see’ hotels is situated in the heart of London, traditionally a members’ club created by Nick Jones the founder of Soho House, The Ned is the ultimate London ‘Hot Spot’ located in the city centre while being the place to ‘see’ and be seen. The space in which The Ned’s foundations lie were built between 1924 and 1939, the moment Nick Jones saw this magnificent building he knew this was an ambitious project and worked closely with investors to realise his vision. Four years later following a £200 million pound refurbishment, The Ned opened its doors.
Upon arrival you are met with spectacular 1920s inspired décor in simply breath-taking surroundings, the ground floor has 92 original verdite columns, with each pillar uniquely encased in hundreds of carefully assembled fragments like a jigsaw puzzle. This emerald rock was hard to come by in such huge quantities and painstakingly assembled on site. The building itself has a grandiose feel, from the white washed external stone towering high at the magnificent main entrance to the beautiful material floral booths where you can enjoy everything from coffee to business lunches at Millie’s Lounge. As a hotel resident you may just be lucky enough to gain access to the exclusive ‘Ned’s Club’ the members-only rooftop space with views to St-Pauls Cathedral and beyond!
The Ned has a room for everyone, whether it’s a quick weekend get-away for two guests can choose from ‘The Cosy’ or ‘Medium Room’, both granting access to the Ned’s Club Gym and Spa complete with Cowshed products and the relaxing walk-in rainforest showers. If you are looking to host guests you can book the spacious but intimate ‘Terrace Suite’ featuring its own private dining and terrace facilities or why not choose the ‘Duplex Suite’ spanning two floors with its own private access to a small terrace with views over Princes Street and The Bank of England.
For family breaks there is the option of the ‘Two Bed Family Suite’, a multi-room 95 square metre space offering a large lounge and dining space with a host of period design features: tufted mohair ottomans, Persian rugs and stunning glass chandeliers. The master bedroom has an elegant walnut super king-size bed, large silk-covered wardrobes and Italian lampshades while the second bedroom features a queen-sized bed and oak spoon-back chairs.
