The Chilworth – Introducing The Montcalm Hotel Group’s new generation of boutique townhouse hotel.
Step off a train at Paddington – Brunel’s masterpiece and you’re in “the most important historical railway station in the world.” A short walk westwards and you’re in a classic London cityscape of white stucco townhouses, imposing porticos and cobbles mews. This is home to The Chilworth – houses in its own white stucco townhouse, infusing its airy rooms with a new elegance befitting its age, but evocative of a more romantic era.
The launch of The Chilworth marks the first townhouse for the luxury hotel group – an urban boutique retreat and little London hideaway where every detail is designed to enhance your wellbeing as well as comfort during your stay.
Conveniently located just a few minutes from Paddington Station with its city, regional and international connections, The Chilworth is set in a beautifully refurbished Georgian townhouse and provides an oasis of calm on one of the capitals characteristic tree lined streets, a short stroll from Hyde Park.
Step inside the lobby; where warm, dark, wood polished marble and crushed velvet envelope guests in a laid-back luxury. With the feel of a private members club, but with the warmth of a neighbourhood café, it will make you feel at home – but very definitely away – secluded by quietly attentive service in surroundings as stimulating as they are relaxing.
With an elegant yet informal atmosphere, the décor blends classical period features with sharp, contemporary design. Every detail of the guest experience has been designed to provide the ultimate in personal service, from the hotel’s very own wellbeing ambassador to the pillow menu, which can be pre-selected prior to arrival.
MTD Contractors Ltd was the main contractor on The Chilworth, while Carter Design was the architect. The hotel was officially launched on 9 July 2018 and has 124 bedrooms each with Frette bed linen, iPod dock, high speed broadband, free international calls to selected countries, Minibar, Entertainment Centre and double glazed windows with some rooms fitted with a Vitamin C infused shower.
In the restaurant, the carefully considered menus also draw on elements of health and wellbeing, reflecting a philosophy of nurturing the soul as well as the body, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The restaurant is a bright, buzzy all-day eatery with an uncomplicated approach to food. Beautifully simple, prepared with flair and sourced with care from trusted growers and suppliers, it offers freshly prepared breakfasts, juices and smoothies, wholesome lunches and enticing afternoon teas and delicious dinners.
There is also a stylish bar for relaxing with pre or post dinner drinks, including signature cocktails. The bar offers a variety of well-chosen wines, a medley of local beers and intriguing cocktails as well as moreish mocktails for the health conscious tippler.
The Chilworth’s compact urban spa features a Jacuzzi, gym and an extensive range of treatments, as well as a yoga suite and outdoor yoga classes (weather permitting) in nearby Hyde Park, where walking tours can also be arranged.
Montcalm management commented: “We’re proud to play a part in the Paddington area’s renaissance by restoring a classic English townhouse as London’s newest boutique hotel. We wanted to create somewhere our guests can feel a real sense of belonging whenever they’re in town, equally at home relaxing in the cosy bar or sociable lobby lounge as in their room.
“Enlightened luxury means looking after guests’ wellbeing too, so as well as an urban spa and gym; we’ve invested in amenities like a wellbeing ambassador, always on hand to help guests towards their lifestyle goals, even away from home.”
In a peaceful setting, but with easy access to the West End, The Chilworth promises to be a popular choice for those who prefer small hotels with the personal touch, and a great addition to London’s boutique hotel scene.
