Piece of cake
Why overcomplicate things? A stay at North Audley Street III is just so simple. Perfectly attuned to its purpose, all is light and bright, minimalist and modern. There’s an easy sophistication to the high ceilings and period features, an unfussy luxury to the vintage-style chairs, roll-top bath and immaculate bedroom. Perhaps you’ll pour a glass in the dusky kitchen, perhaps you’ll lounge on the squidgy couch, or perhaps you’ll admire the architecture through the window. Which reminds us. What could be simpler than living plum in the middle of town, with everything from Selfridges to The Serpentine within a languid stroll?

Flick on the wall-mounted TV and cosy down, or hop over to the kitchen to get cooking. With its deep brown surfaces and slick granite worktops, you’re sure to dish up something sophisticated for tea.
Slumber is simple in the elegant bedroom, and not only because of our crisp, luxury linen. Calming in white, you’ve more period features, twin bedside lamps and a reassuringly ample wardrobe. But before you turn in, or head out, put our White Company toiletries to good use with a soak in the ensuite’s delectable roll-top bath.
