Aragon House Parson’s Green Review

Where is Aragon House Parson’s Green?

Aragon House is a boutique hotel tucked away in the heart of Hammersmith and Fulham, London, about 5 minutes walk away from Parson’s Green tube station.

Aragon House isn’t just your average B&B either – it’s got history. Built in 1805, Aragon House is listed as a Grade-II public house. It was named after Queen Catherine of Aragon, King Henry VIII’s first wife, and combines old-world charm with modern design sensibility.

Aragon House is known for blending history and contemporary style. They’ve preserved the charm of the original, Grade-II listed structure with exposed brickwork, cosy fireplaces, and a classic bar that oozes with character. It’s not stuck in the past though – the boutique hotel is decked out with trendy furnishings and stylish decor that make it feel trendy.

They’re well known for having an amazing restaurant too.

From mouth-watering Sunday roasts to a wide selection of fine wines and craft beers, Aragon House is a good spot for a foodie.

What are the rooms like at Aragon House?

The rooms at Aragon House are tastefully designed. Each room blends vintage design elements with contemporary pieces and eclectic artwork.

The vibe is old world glamour meets modern luxury – all topped off with an energy-giving rich teal wall colour, contrasted by a burnt orange colour palette. I particularly liked the vintage telephone handset on our bedside table!

We stayed in the Beaumont room, which overlooked the street. It was double glazed but fairly noisy overlooking the road so I’d recommend having a room towards the back. There were lots of attentive details and objects in our room that elevated it into a tasteful and refined place to stay, including lovely luxury toiletry products.

The bathrooms were beautifully decorated!

What are the beds like at Aragon House?

We had twin beds which were super comfortable, and long enough for a tall girlie like me.

The beds are super comfy, with plump pillows and crisp linens for a great night’s sleep. And the en-suite bathrooms are sleek and modern, stocked with high-end toiletries for a pampering experience.

Plus, the rooms offer a peaceful view of the lush Parson’s Green, providing a tranquil escape from the city buzz.

Aragon House knows how to create a luxurious and homely stay, paying attention to details.

The only negative I have is that, if you’re staying in the Beaumont room, your windows overlook the road. It can be rather noisy at rush hour, hearing cars, honks and people outside. If you’re a light sleeper I recommend getting a room overlooking the Aragon House garden.

 

Is the food good at Aragon House?

The dining experience at Aragon House is delightful. They do British food exceptionally well.Their restaurant showcases traditional British cuisine with a twist. Each dish is crafted using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients to ensure freshness and quality.

The classic British delicacies are done to perfection. Plus they have seafood and oysters available too.

I can’t forget about the quintessential British tradition of Sunday Roast either. Aragon House really goes all out in this department – their Sunday Roast is legendary. Juicy cuts of roast beef, tender pork, or a hearty nut roast for the vegetarians, all served with crispy roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, and a mix of seasonal veggies. Drizzled with a rich, hearty gravy, and paired with a glass of your favourite red, it’swhat Sunday dreams are made of.

Even if you don’t stay at Aragon House overnight, book in for their Sunday Roast!

Here are some of the best dishes at Aragon House that we tried over the weekend, in no particular order:

  • Sunday Roast
  • Bouillabaisse
  • Baked camembert with garlic and rosemary
  • Scotch egg
  • Pan-seared scallops
  • Shepherd’s pie
  • Calamari

What is breakfast like at Aragon House?

Breakfast was the most subpar part of our stay, offering only continental breakfast and cold bits to pick at like yoghurt and croissants, since the kitchen is closed. This was fine for me as I’m not that hungry in the morning – usually I’ll go for a coffee and some toast.

But if you like to start your day with something more filling, you’d be better off booking in at Aragon House for dinner, and heading to a nearby brunch spot for a hearty breakfast!

There are plenty of great brunch spots near Aragon House, just off New Kings Road, including Hally’s London, St Clements, and BoysnBerry. We personally went to St Clements on our second day for a coffee and croissant – it was lush.

Is Aragon House good for couples?

Aragon House would be a great place to stay in London for couples in autumn or summer. Whether it’s romantic or platonic, each double room (whether a twin or double bed) is designed to comfortably accommodate two people.

The decor is plush, there are lots of chez longues and chairs to laze around in, and the hotel’s location is perfect for long strolls around South West London in a more residential part of town.

There are lovely independent coffee shops and boutiques dotted all around nearby, and you can toast to each other’s company in the delightful cocktail bar after having a top-tier dinner. I recommend the pisco sours!
