Portobello Hotel – For the past three decades The Portobello Hotel has been a true original in a world of overwhelmingly bland hotels. The eccentric outsider, it kick-started the current trend for small, offbeat hotels where the interior design is cutting-edge, staff are attentive but discreet, and lobby and rooms alike are intended to feel as intimate as home. This is a nesting experience without the drudgery of tidying up. Owners Tim and Cathy Herring first opened up the pioneering idea in 1970 and with the assistance of the interior designer Julie Hodgess opened the Portobello Hotel in 1971. The trio had already started the nearby Julie’s Restaurant and Julie’s Bar. The present long established Group Managing Partner Johnny Ekperigin first joined the team in 1974 at Julie’s Restaurant.
