‘If you want to be looked after properly, where better than in a nurses home? Of course, Matron moved on long ago, and at today’s Malmaison London, there isn’t a hospital corner in sight. Instead, London Mal has been stunningly converted into the finest boutique hotel in London, right on the edge of trendy Clerkenwell and within the sound of bow bells, we shouldn’t wonder.’
