  • Reason for inclusion: The favoured candidate for the Northumberland Hotel in which Sir Henry Baskerville and Dr Mortimer stay at the commencement of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Also possibly features in “The Greek Interpreter” and “The Noble Bachelor”

    Accessibility: Normal opening hours

    Description: A Hotel originally called the Metropole. One of the major hotels on Northumberland Avenue

    Comments: The hotel opened in 1885, with an 88-page brochure which claimed: “That the hotel’s location particularly recommend it to ladies and families visiting the West End during the Season; to travellers from Paris and the Continent, arriving from Dover and Folkestone at the Charing Cross Terminus; to Officers and others attending the levees at St James; to Ladies going to the Drawing Rooms, State Balls, and Concerts at Buckingham Palace; and to colonial and American visitors unused to the great world of London” So an ideal place for Sir Henry Baskerville to stay. For the same reasons possibly features in “The Greek Interpreter” as being one of the hotels on Northumberland Avenue where Mr Melas provided guiding services and where in “The Noble Bachelor” Frank Moulton stayed.
