The hotel consists of grade II listed Georgian terraced houses that retain original features. Tavistock Place, named after the ground landlord, the Duke of Bedford, Marquess of Tavistock, was built circa 1807, designed by James Burton. The hotel is situated in Bloomsbury, the central, park-filled district famous for it's literary figures such as Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf's 'Bloomsbury Set', both lived just around the corner on Tavistock Square. Tavistock Place is also home to the original Mary Ward centre, a famous example of Art Nouveau in London, and at No.33 Jerome K. Jerome wrote his famous comedy 'Three Men in a boat'.
