Hatchetts Hotel was very centrally placed in London at 67 Piccadilly and it was also a stage coach stop. It was a second league good hotel and, according to Moggs New Picture of London and Visitors Guide to its Sights, 1844 it was the sort of hotel where the first families will find themselves, comparatively speaking, at home. Hatchetts was mainly frequented by well to do families living in the country who did not own a house in London but visited London for the season or other reasons. It was also a very popular hotel with batchelors home on leave from the Colonies.
