About Company


Cottage Linen is a professional Linen Hire and laundry service for restaurants and hotels with 30 years’ experience in this field. We are a family-run business that takes great pride in the quality we provide to our customers.  

Initially we started as a small laundrette in Swiss Cottage which is where the name Cottage Linen derives from. A local restaurant asked us to wash tea towels for them, and soon more restaurants were asking for our services.  Eventually we outgrew the premises at Swiss Cottage and over the years we have expanded our business through word of mouth and we now have the capacity to process over a million pieces a week.


Our Philosophy

We understand that each restaurant and hotel is unique and we strive to cater to individual needs. We care about all our clients and understand that you DO NOT need to be dealing with an unreliable service on top of everything else it takes to run a successful hospitality business! 


Quality Assurance

Each member of our team undergoes regular and extensive training that involves strict quality controls. We know just how to pack and store your linen to minimise creasing and we regularly inspect our linen for holes, stains and fading.


Environmentally Friendly

We have the latest in energy efficient machinery, including our batch washers which recycle close to 100% of the fresh water used during other parts of the process.

We also store, filter and reuse our grey water which reduces the amount of chemicals and steam heating required.

Our integrated system, Barcellos, means that you can order and receive invoices online, cutting down on our paper usage.

This system also helps us to plan our deliveries to increase fuel efficiency and cut our carbon footprint!



Prezzo have been using Cottage Linen for a number of years for all our branches nationwide and we are delighted with their service. They understand our needs and it is great to deal with a company that is responsive to customer's requirements. They offer excellent support and customer service and would have no hesitation recommending then to any restaurant seeking linen hire.
