Named after William Hazlitt, an 18th century English literary critic, author and essayist who died here. The story goes that when William Hazlitt died here (at the time it was his boarding house at number 6) his landlady placed his body under the bed so she could show the room to prospective tenants while she waited for the undertaker.
In 2009 a 4th building behind the original 3 was converted to create extra reception area space, a sitting room complete with honesty bar and 8 new bedrooms with lift access.
