If you like your hotels exclusive, if you enjoy rich colours, then let us introduce you to St Petersburgh Place, a gorgeously decadent home for those who prefer their lilies with lashings of gilt.
Up on the first floor of a Notting Hill mansion, and served with a private lift, we know you’ll love the intricate tapestries, the thick curtains, the fine china and, best of all, the sense of wellbeing that comes from knowing that you are entirely cosseted from the outside world. When a home is this ravishing, who needs to go outside?
Fol de rol
Your hosts, unsurprisingly, are an interior designer and an hotelier; hence, St Petersburgh Place’s resemblance to some of the capital’s finest five star institutions. They love to entertain, and with a dining room this delicious, we can’t say we blame them!

Whizz up to the second floor in the lift that will drop you directly into St Petersburgh Place’s hall. To your right is the ornate, immaculate sitting room. The extensive library and delightful artwork will keep you more than occupied, while light filters through the large windows, draped with the curtains that truly embody the word opulent.
The compact kitchen is decked with every mod con, and then it’s on to the dining room, where you’ve a high, glass ceiling and doors out onto the roof terrace. The burgundy twin bedroom is decorated with magnificent wallpaper and some lavish textiles, with ensuite-style access to the family bathroom (your dinner guests may prefer to use the concealed entrance in the hall). The master bedroom is spacious and restful in pure alabaster, with an ensuite filled with White Company toiletries.
