Blakes secret courtyard is now re-designed by the internationally renowned Matthew Williamson. A peaceful oasis with lush, leafy plants, tall tree ferns that are at the same time handsome and bold in their stature. Eclectically styled furniture painted in mind green, the garden convey a Mediterranean alfresco lifestyle for teas and late night cocktails.
Located in fashionable South Kensington, Blakes is justly famous for its stunning design, elegance and dedicated service. A personal statement about what design can achieve, every detail is carefully constructed to provide the ideal blend of colour, texture and atmosphere in this unique boutique hotel. Its uncompromising stand on privacy has made it the London base for film stars, musicians and all the top designers, earning its reputation as The “Couture” Hotel.

The refined rooms are furnished with unique antiques and rich fabrics. Each room has 24-hour room service and a beautifully styled bathroom and many of them feature an elegant four-poster bed and original artwork.
