Temple Lodge - a Georgian Listed Building in Hammersmith - is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Broadway, yet is just a few minutes walk from its main underground and bus station. It was once the home of the artist Sir Frank Brangwyn. Whilst his studio, which he built himself, has now become a chapel with a vegetarian restaurant on its former mezzanine floor, the house itself is given over to welcoming bed and breakfast visitors to London. They come from the four corners of the world to enjoy the quietness and tranquillity of the house. Many have described it as a really peaceful haven to return to after the rigours of a day out. The absence of any televisions in the house or rooms supports this atmosphere.
We are now in our third '3-star' year as awarded by Visit England.
Visitors to the house enter a courtyard with a small garden through the 'Angel Gate'. To the rear of the house is a quiet and secluded garden, and most of our bedrooms, the library and the dining room look out over this garden with its seasonal changes and squirrels in the trees.
The Frank Brangwyn Room
It gives us great pleasure to announce that on Friday 22nd March 2013 we have opened a new luxury room that is called the Frank Brangwyn Room. The naming of the room honours the artist Sir Frank Brangwyn whose house and home Temple Lodge was for thirty years at the beginning of the twentieth century. It is situated almost as a penthouse on the second floor of the house and is an addition to the top floor of the building overlooking the garden. It has its own balcony, making it possible to enjoy summer evenings outdoors. It is furnished as a double room with its own en-suite shower room and toilet facilities and includes all the amenities, such as refreshments, of the other rooms.
We hope you will choose to stay with us on your next visit to London and will like the changes and the new look, which since last summer already, has extended to the dining room. We look forward to welcoming you again during the coming year.
