The Family


Our Hotel in central London has been a well-established family run business since 1956.  The Hotel was started by Aldo and Felicina Bessolo, who ran the Bloomsbury business happily together for many years.  Their daughter, Rita Cockle took over the running of the Hotel in the 80’s.

The Hotel is more than a business to us.  It is part of our family heritage and memories.  We hope that this is conveyed in the atmosphere you experience at the Hotel.

Rita is now assisted by her husband Paul.  Rita enjoys keeping up with her friends in the Perfume Bottle Collectors Association, adding to her glass and ceramics collection and visiting antiques’ markets when time permits.
