I do hope Bedford Estates can find a way for the Penn Club to continue

18 February, 2021

• HAVING spent several visits to London staying at the Penn Club over the years, and recommending it to friends, I’m so sorry to learn it will be closing, (A sad end for this unique, noble and generous-spirited institution, February 11).

I appreciated it for so many reasons, atmosphere, location, comfortable, affordable, nothing glitzy but very homey and just a very nice place to be and the staff excellent, helpful, friendly, professional, competent and conscientious.

The breakfasts were fab. Guests could be a big bonus too… interesting conversation, great energy. It seemed obvious that some of them called it home, not just for an occasional visit. I do hope Bedford Estates can find a way to keep it operating.
