The 5 star Athenaeum Hotel & Residences is on Piccadilly in the heart of Mayfair and 23 Greengarden House, a development of serviced apartments just off Oxford Street, are both in central London. The two rural properties are The Grove, a 5 star resort, in Hertfordshire and the 4 star Runnymede on Thames set on the banks of the River Thames near Windsor in Surrey. The Grove is 20 minutes train journey from central London and The Runnymede on Thames is 7 minutes from Heathrow Airport and a 40 minute train journey from central London.

Awards & Recognition

Although we are part of a family owned group, each property is individually managed, with its own individualism and its own sense of style. All are run by people with a genuine passion for relaxed luxury service.

Always looking for new ways to fine tune and innovate within our hotels and improve the service we give to our guests, we are delighted to have won many awards – here are just a few.
