Hotel Introduction
Celebrated international designer Anouska Hempel conceived the Blakes Hotel as a model small luxury hotel, and she succeeded in imparting her signature elegance, warmth, and style. It also has achieved distinction as a hotel that guards its guests’ privacy, making it the go-to destination for celebrities and sophisticated world travellers alike.

All of the rooms and suites within the Blakes offer unique designs, complete with details such as French windows, private balconies, lofty ceilings, trompe l’oeil walls, antique prints, stencilled floors, and plush fabrics and furnishings. Ensuring a universal welcome for all guests, subtly masculine features dominate themed rooms such as the Library suites, Cardinal suites, and White French Provencal suites.

The phenomenal onsite restaurant provides a culinary adventure where East meets West. The private event room also carries an Eastern influence, which establishes a graceful, chic atmosphere for both business and pleasure.

Dining
Again, Anouska Hempel’s skilful hand can be found at the Blakes Hotel restaurant, where the best of Eastern and Western cuisine and design is celebrated. The dishes, such as black cod with a miso and ginger sauce and rack of lamb with rosemary, are as delightful to look at as they are to eat. The hip bar next to the restaurant is a perfect locale to meet for drinks either before or after dinner.

Hotel Features
The Blakes Hotel is licensed to perform weddings in Suite 007, which, much like its namesake, sets pulses pounding. The gorgeous colour palette of berries and cream creates a joyful ambience for wedding ceremonies—from the stunning fresh flowers on the tables to the rose petals on the floor.

Meetings
Adjoining the hotel’s restaurant in the subterranean level is the Chinese Room, with space to host up to 36 people in splendid style. The décor is tastefully exotic, and it’s an ideal space for receptions, meetings, cocktail parties, and more. The staff at the Blakes will create a personalized menu that will make your event one to remember. Another optimal choice for a meeting or event is the restaurant, which can host up to 80 people for dinner or 100 guests for appetizers and cocktails.

Location
The hotel is located in a quiet residential area of South Kensington. South Kensington and Gloucester Road tube stations are both within easy reach by foot, while most of London's most fashionable shops are all just a short taxi ride away to Knightsbridge and Sloane Square. The Royal Parks and many other popular attractions are also nearby. London Heathrow (14.2m) is a tube journey away, as is London City Airport (11.7m), while Gatwick (31.5m) can be easily reached from Victoria Station.
