The Stafford London hotel has long been a favorite of Hideaway Report readers, and it was therefore with great interest that I learned of the property’s 11 new Carriage House accommodations, designed by New York-based Alexandra Champalimaud. These are housed within a separate 380-year-old Grade II listed building, overlooking a quiet cobbled courtyard in the heart of St. James’s, arguably London’s most elegant neighborhood. As well as fireplaces and four-poster beds, some of the suites contain the stables’ original hay hoists, as well as massive timbers salvaged from wrecked naval vessels. In addition, Champalimaud has transformed The Gatehouse Suite, an adjoining three-level, two bedroom townhouse. The Stafford also has a new restaurant, The Game Bird, under the direction of chef James Durrant, who has worked alongside Michelin-starred chefs Gordon Ramsay and Jason Atherton.
