Not (yet) well known, the Victoria is a perfect get-away-from-it-all hotel. Known as “a restaurant and bar with bedrooms,” you’ll need a London cabbie to find it. Top chef, quiet location, not your average stay in the city. The hotel has all the modern conveniences and is just a short walk from Richmond Park.
