In this handsome Royal Terrace town house, the spacious rooms are beautifully designed with an eye for detail: an enormous bed sits on a raised platform facing a stylish seating area with a flat-screen TV. Double doors open into a huge bathroom with an ample rain shower, two basins, and an egglike freestanding tub. Underfloor heating and mood lighting add to the feeling of luxury, and there are commanding views from the towering windows. Pricey aperitifs served can be
enjoyed in the clublike lounge before you head downstairs to sample the playful cuisine in the famous restaurant. The gourmet breakfast (including fresh fruit, chunky toast, and smoked salmon with caviar) is served in a grand room overlooking the steep garden.
