Editor's Review

The hotel mansion does complete justice to its name. The mansion has a special and unique atmosphere. The rooms in the mansion are luxurious having good views. Since the place is quite cold, hot water is a must. But you might have some issues with that. 


  • The mysterious ambience of the Sherlock-themed mansion is catchy.
  • The food and dessert items are pretty good. 
  • The rooms have a British-style design. All of them have a fireplace.

Detailed Info

 Sherlock Mansion was a privately-owned summer mansion during the 19th century, which had later been converted into a hotel with nine spacious luxury rooms. The architectural design of the mansion reminds guests of the Victorian-Era in the late 1800's. The elevated mansion and the retro-style brick chimneys in the rooms provide a glimpse of 19th century London. The ambience of the entire place is Holmesian with all the rooms named after a Sherlock adventure.

The mansion has a spacious lounge area, a reading room & an activity space along with nine luxurious rooms, each of which has a fireplace. The furniture that embellished the rooms in the mansion years ago is still intact. In the mansion are two dining rooms, one of which has a sun-roof to create a warmer ambience. The multi-cuisine restaurant serves food made with special herbs and spices. Guests can enjoy a refreshing cup of tea in the beautiful lawn or the sun room. The atmosphere of the entire mansion is quite mysterious, but that is exactly what you would expect from a Sherlock-themed hotel.
