The Pelham Hotel was once part of the Firmdale Hotels group, and as such, it features interiors designed by Kit Kemp, whose use of bold colours and quintessentially English style has earned her a reputation for providing delightful and luxurious accommodation. Now operated by the owners of the nearby Gore Hotel, the Pelham has retained the charming and enchanting style that stemmed from its previous owners.

Across the road from the Pelham is South Kensington tube station with its underground pedestrian access to the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and V&A. Additionally, the hotel is surrounded by a diverse range of designer shops, boutique cafés, bars and restaurants.


Kit Kemp’s unique styling continues in all of the Pelham’s 51 rooms with each one individually designed. Antique furniture sits alongside more contemporary pieces and fabrics feature bold patterns and colours. The accommodation is well appointed with complimentary Wi-Fi throughout. Each room includes a flat screen television, a DVD player, a desk with a telephone and modem point, a mini-bar and an umbrella for the usual rainy British weather.

The smallest Queen Single room features a queen sized bed and is 20 square metres. Queen and King size double rooms are available and the largest room is the King Suite, which includes its own separate drawing room. All rooms have en-suite granite bathroom facilities with complimentary Penhaligon toiletries.
