Boutique hotel vibes at The Pilgrm

This quirky and cosy retreat is perfect for a weekend away – and only a few minutes’ walk from London Paddington Station.

The team behind The Pilgrm hotel in Paddington includes those who worked on some of London’s best-loved boutique brands, such as The Zetter.

This hotel has a handy location – you’ll be at the station in five minutes – and a relaxing home-from-home feel. The room options are bright and crisp and include grown-up bunk beds, but the lounge is our new favourite place to unwind. It’s got velvet cocktail chairs, a vintage bar, a balcony space and loads of plants.

We popped by for organic white wine and possibly London’s best cheese toastie – a buttery, crispy deli-style feast that’s available alongside bacon butties with duck eggs and fluffy small plates of burrata with chickpeas. Bookmark it.
