Cannizaro House Hotel Wimbledon
8 / 10 0
Grass! Woods! It’s a happiness to face regarding lavender-scented back terrace, though visitors planning London jaunts should factor in a great 20-minute stroll and bus trip or 10-minute taxi ride to Wimbledon railway/underground section. It’s short taxi visit to Nirvana, aka the All England Lawn Tennis Club during Wimbledon Fortnight.
Style & character
7 / 10 0
Cannizaro House is like a hybrid: it was currently 200 yrs . old when it ended up being rebuilt in 1900, with a new wing and glass expansion included later on. The Lounge Bar is currently a symphony in Wedgwood blue and white with a functional hearth, comfortable linen and leather-based seating, a copper-topped bar and (irritating) songs. Trump card? Its previous parkland, maintained for general public usage because of the council, plus Wimbledon popular.
Service & facilities
Restaurant solution was friendly and receptive. In-room beauty/spa remedies are available from Gina Conway of Wimbledon and there’s a membership agreement with a nearby fitness center. A huge display appears into the Lounge club for Wimbledon Fortnight. There clearly was numerous tree-shaded parking, overlooked because of the forward spaces.
- Area solution
Décor inside 48 rooms is discreet with three styles of function wall space, comfortable beds with great reading lights and some beautiful leafy views. The bathrooms (not refurbished) tend to be modest, decked out in tiles and mosaics, with Miller Harris products. Showers are great. Strange to see a gargantuan television in trademark suite preventing the wonderful view. There’s a smart area service menu with veg choices, offered until 10pm.

Food & drink
Resort du Vin requirements – modern European/British meals in beast portions – are offered three various ways: à la carte within the even more mainstream Bistro, al fresco inside Orangery, which has interior and outside tables - and a less heavy selection in the Lounge club. The food is jolly without fragile: my salmon had been how big is a whale and also you could sail somewhere in the crepe suzette. Breakfast is good - fruit, smoked haddock, poached egg – although the coffee, weirdly, had been ghastly.
Double areas from £149 in reasonable season, increasing to £524 during Wimbledon fortnight, without morning meal. On Sunday nights a room costs £25 with the very least £75 restaurant spend. Totally Free Wi-Fi.
