I always look forward to a lovely weekend away with my hubby. Strolling around, hand in hand, taking in all the sights, I love it.
We decided to book a weekend stay at the 5-star luxury Grange St. Paul’s hotel in London and the location of the hotel couldn’t have been better. It was practically next door to St. Paul’s Cathedral and actually next door to Café Rouge, which was also a bonus. The hotel was very modern, with several bars and restaurants, a luxury spa and a private health and fitness club. We didn’t have time to try many of the facilities available this time, as we had already made other plans, however I would definitely try the spa next time, as the treatments sounded amazing. The staff were friendly and polite and there seemed to be somebody there to help you, practically around every corner.
The hotel was fairly large, containing 433 bedrooms. Our bedroom was spacious with a large, comfy bed, nice bathroom and it was everything you would expect from a luxury hotel. Even though our room overlooked the atrium and not a more picturesque scene, we still enjoyed our stay here.
Once we had checked in and unpacked our suitcases, off we went to explore the rest of the hotel. The rooftop garden was lovely and there was a fabulous view of St. Paul’s and the Shard, unfortunately the weather wasn’t so great, so spending a great deal of time up there was out of the question on this occasion. Down in the atrium, however, the colourful horses looked stunning and the Edelweiss (self-playing) piano, gave everything a lovely atmosphere. The bar was pretty good too, with a good choice of cocktails to choose from.
One of my favourite things when staying in a hotel, is the breakfast. I can’t wait to be seated at our table and go and investigate the morning’s offerings. I was definitely not disappointed with the choice and quality of the breakfast at Grange St. Paul’s. There was a good display of most items and I certainly didn’t go hungry.
So that’s it, a round-up of our hotel stay. Would I stay at Grange St. Paul’s hotel again? Yes I would, it had everything you could ask for in a luxury London hotel.
