The Courthouse Hotel London

Courthouse Hotel London
19-21 Gt Marlborough Street


Set in the heart of London’s bustling shopping and theatre district, the Courthouse Hotel is in a prime location. Situated in an old courthouse, the Grade II listed building retains much of the splendor of the original, with a number of quirky features.

The Great Marlborough Street Magistrate’s Court set the scene for many famous cases over the years, which were either heard there or taken to full trial at Crown Courts such as the Old Bailey.

Many remnants of this time have been incorporated into the building’s current scheme. The Bar’s private tables are actually inside three of the original prison cells. Silk, the hotel’s destination restaurant is the old Number One court where the Judges bench, witness stand and dock take centre stage. Elsewhere in the hotel, glimpses of former use can be seen – such as the iron bars that separate the lobby lounge from the Bar.
