The Laslett will host 51 well-appointed bedrooms and suites. Named after well-loved community activist, Rhaune Laslett, who organised the first Notting Hill Festival, The Laslett is spread across five listed Victorian townhouses on Pembridge Gardens.

Made famous by the film, Notting Hill is also known for Portobello Road Market, the world’s largest for antiques, as well as for its fashionable restaurants and bars. Inspired by this vibrant local scene, the look and feel of The Laslett will evoke the sense of walking into a friend’s stylish home. The interior design is the work of architects and designers from Waldo Works, who are widely known for their contemporary British flair. Pieces from British designers compliment the interior, whilst art and photography from celebrated local names hang in the rooms.

The public space downstairs is part lobby, part bar-restaurant, part gallery and part concept store, with regular events and a locally sourced food and drink selection. Offering in-room spa treatments and pop-up dining opportunities, The Laslett is a firm favourite for visitors and locals alike in the heart of Notting Hill.
