Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Bloomsbury - Orchid Way

2-storey modern and fully serviced and managed mews house in the heart of London

At Merino Hospitality we thought we would try something new and gave our guests the freedom to design their accommodation to their own taste. Select previous guest were awarded the opportunity to chose from a vast choice of furniture, finishes, colours, fabrics and textures, in order to create a space that is both sumptuous and highly individual.

The results are incredible! With two bedrooms on the top floor and a mezzanine, above a large open plan reception room and kitchen, we think the decorative combinations chosen by our guests bring an air of class and a new dynamic to the interior.

The mezzanine floor has a futon that can be used as a comfortable sofa or double bed. It’s finished with a luxury topper for the ultimate comfort and the best night’s sleep. There are two spacious bathrooms in the house. One is a modern wet-room, whilst the other has a bath with a generous shower overhead.

One thing we have insisted on choosing ourselves: The beds. We go to extreme lengths to give you the best possible night’s sleep. We are talking about the ultimate level of comfort – bespoke, hand-made in the UK beds and mattresses, made specifically for Merino Hospitality in partnership with the official bed makers for the Rolls-Royce Enthusiast Club, EPOC. They are layered with over 10" of Merino wool, white cotton felt, cambric, silk and individually pocketed springs to make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud. Trust us, you will need more than your smartphone alarm to get out of bed in the morning!

And with that in mind, you can have your alarm setup through your SONOS audio system in every room of the house.

Other facilities include a Samsung Smart LED TV 48″ full HD with Netflix and HDMI connectivity, fast and reliable Wi-Fi, LED lighting and solar heating system with underfloor heating throughout, whilst skylights and floor to ceiling sliding windows flood the house with natural light. You will also find a washer/dryer (detergent and softener provided), a large dishwasher (tablets included), iron with board and hair dryers in every bedroom, as well as luxury amenities by Aromatherapy Associates and Pecksniff’s, soft towels and top quality bedlinen. Fresh fruits, flowers and a small selection of groceries will be waiting for you on arrival (including a bottle of wine, juice, milk, eggs, bread, butter, crisps, chocolates, biscuits and sweets). Cooking spices, salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar, tea and coffee are all supplied free of charge, as are cleaning materials for your daily needs. Additional housekeeping is also available on request for a small surcharge. Stays of 7+ nights benefit of complimentary weekly cleaning and linen change.

The reception room opens onto a secluded cobbled street, a stone’s throw from the centre of town and the bustling West End. Orchid Way is peaceful retreat, in a calm residential street full of character and in the same neighbourhood of the British Museum.

About Merino Hospitality

At Merino Hospitality we specialise in providing boutique accommodation with a very personal five-star service, tailored specifically to your needs. We have a small number of luxury serviced apartments and houses, superbly located in the heart of London.

We are not in the business of providing impersonal, soulless accommodation. We want you to find a home-from-home, in a beautifully designed, relaxed and private setting. With central London on your doorstep and the professional help of our small, friendly team, Merino Hospitality offers something very special.

You may be coming to London on holiday, to relax with family and friends and to see the capital’s famous landmarks. Perhaps you are visiting on business, to affirm partnerships, seal contracts or do some strategic planning. You may be relocating to London or need accommodation whilst renovating your own property. Whatever the reason, we understand that your needs are unique to you, which is why our serviced apartments come in various shapes and sizes and we tailor our services to fulfil your expectations. Each spacious home is individually designed to the highest specification, with its own character and charm. All of our properties are finished with the Merino Hospitality attention to detail, with the modern amenities you would expect and ultimately with your comfort in mind.

We would look forward to welcoming you to your private accommodation in London. We want your stay to be as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. So, however long you’re with us, whether its two nights, two weeks or longer, we will do our utmost to exceed your expectations, with helpful and efficient, yet unobtrusive service.

Many of our guests chose to come back and stay with Merino Hospitality again and again, but for now. . . let’s keep it a secret!

Please make yourself at home and if there is anything you need to know, do give us a call.

With our best wishes,

Louise and Caio Merino

Why Merino Hospitality chose Camden & Covent Garden

Your satisfaction is our number one priority. We know how important a well-deserved holiday is when you have worked so hard for it. Time to relax is precious and we all want holiday memories to cherish. Business travel can be tiring and impersonal hotel surroundings aren’t often conducive to an enjoyable trip. We will do our utmost to make you feel at home.

Our discerning guests come from all over the world and all walks of life, amongst them are business owners, executives, technology and media professionals, doctors, lawyers, university lecturers, small and large families, even cartoonists! We are delighted to help those with small children, as well as those with more adult student offspring and we can cater to all your needs.

Merino Hospitality offers you a peaceful space of your own, with many of London’s great visitor attractions, business and financial areas on your doorstep. Bloomsbury is a friendly neighbourhood with great transport links, excellent amenities and lovely green spaces. Staying with Merino Hospitality you will enjoy all the benefits of a full-time resident, with the support of our responsive and professional team on hand to help you when you need it. So when you’ve walked around the sites or worked hard at the office, you can concentrate on unwinding as if you were at home.

Did we mention that our founders actually personally test our properties regularly to ensure quality control? Our cleaning standards are second to none and if you are OCD over it, you've found your perfect match in Merino Hospitality!

We also carry out the maintenance of our properties within our own team so your home in London is always functioning to its best.

What makes this house unique

Merino Hospitality is the brainchild of Louise Carr-Merino and her husband Caio Merino.

The couple originally met during their studies at Les Roches Hotel Management School in Switzerland and went on to gain a wealth of experience working for some of the world’s most respected luxury brands. Merino Hospitality was conceived in 2012 to translate their passion for hospitality and welcoming comfort into a company that delivers an unparalleled and refreshing accommodation experience.

Your satisfaction is our number one priority and our moto is straight-forward:

Comfort. Convenience. Privacy. Joy.

At Merino Hospitality, as well as accommodation we also offer full concierge services and our guests benefit from our exclusive partnerships with the best local businesses, from classic car hire to art dealers.

We guarantee a warm welcome and outstanding properties on every stay!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Another host cancelled on us at the last minute, and needing an alternative we landed on this gem. This property is AMAZING. It's not cheap, but if you can afford it, it is absolutely worth every penny. The location is unbeatable - right behind Russell Square station, but in a small mews that is quiet and serene. The property itself is an impeccable converted carriage house, with all the most modern conveniences (including dedicated hi-speed internet!) and really everything you could possibly need. We were greeted by Andres, who was very nice, explained everything, and also left us with a gift basket of basic supplies and snacks: bread, butter, milk, eggs, fruit, cookies, chips... basically, they made sure we didn't have to go shopping right away. Before and throughout our stay Caio and Andres answered all of our questions quickly and efficiently. We were also pleasantly surprised to get a complementary cleaning half-way through our stay. Caio also came to meet us at the end of our stay and was incredibly nice. Basically, if you want the IDEAL London flat, and can afford the fee - this is THE place to take.

Comfortable and homely mews house in Central London

Great apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Ideal location: totally quiet, in the heart of Bloomsbury easy walk to all of central London. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. For two couples the bathroom configuration is not ideal (bathrooms are on two levels) but that said they are both very nice. It was unusually warm and the upstairs was a bit hard to cool off, but then London is not often overly warm! Staff were responsive, available and flexible!

Located in a traditional mews just around the corner from Russell Square tube, the house offers a peaceful retreat from the buzz of the city.

Bloomsbury is a friendly neighbourhood with green spaces, unusual independent shops, buzzing cafes and excellent restaurants offering food from all over the world. Yet a short walk or tube journey will take you to St. Pancras / King’s Cross, Euston and Waterloo train stations, the British Museum, Covent Garden, Soho, Chinatown, Oxford Street, London’s West End, famous for its world class theatre, The City, St Paul's Cathedral, Regent Street, Bond Street and much more. Nearby Coram’s fields will make you smile – it’s the last park of its kind to which adults are only allowed if accompanied by children!

Bloomsbury is the literary heart of London and often referred to as Midtown due to its superb central location and ease of access to all corners of London.

Lambs Conduit Street - hidden away in the back streets between Holborn and Bloomsbury, you won’t find it on any tourist map or city guide but those who are in the know or happen to stumble across the street instantly fall in love with its unique charm. It’s a street that feels different, it’s as if you aren’t in central London, with a cosmopolitan mix of Cafe’s, Restaurants, Boutiques and Galleries and it’s great for shopping and relaxing but yet a very residential area with hundreds of apartments in the surrounding streets, as well as a vast amount of council homes. This is what makes Lambs Conduit Street so special and so unique, it still has that community spirit that has sadly been etched away from so many old neighbourhoods in Central London. Nothing beats an afternoon lunch sitting out on the street with the sun on your back, in absolute peace and quiet – yet only 5 minutes’ walk from Holborn tube station? – That’s quite surreal.
