The Beaumont Hotel is London’s West End’s hidden jewel. Tucked in a quiet corner moments from Oxford Street’s landmark Selfridges Department Store, this wonderful discovery has had a complete transformation by its owners the famed London restaurateurs Corbin & King.
On a tour of the rooms which all feel very homely, you have a feeling that a very personal touch has been made to pull the whole look so elegantly together.
The stunning Antony Gormley’s stayable sculpture, ‘Room’ takes the breath away. From the outside, the unmistakable stainless steel cubist figure of a man clutching his knees towers over the Beaumont’s entrance. You enter the most unusual room via steps from its white marble-lined bathroom which is a 10m-high asymmetric chamber encased in dark black forest oak, it really is something to see!
The hotel restaurant “The Colony Grill” was an absolute delight. Once seated you feel like you have arrived in an episode of Agatha Christie’s “Poirot” – it is that quaint and stylish. The world’s top male model David Gandy has been spotted dining here, as has Oscar winner actress Alicia Vikander, Supermodel Cindy Crawford held her book launch party there, as well as her husband Rande Gerber and George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila launch.

The Colony Grill has quickly established itself as a destination of note for London’s most discerning diners. Sorrounded by the most gorgeous black and white images from Hollywood’s golden era, it is also beautifully lit and generously spaced. The menu offered was very hearty, I went for the crab linguini but other food selections include superb fish dishes, shepherd’s pie, roast beef, burgers, steak, and meatloaf.
The Beaumont is a wonderful oasis in the heart of a big beating city, its old world up to date ambience will draw you in, and you will find it hard to leave.
