Lastyear we had an influx of London hotels opening in time for the Olympics, and whilst the mad rush to welcome guests might have slowed down there are still a fair few openings in the pipeline. The Great Northern Hotel might have only opened its doors this month but the GNH was actually London’s first railway hotel and dates back to 1854. And with just an 18 metre space between the hotel and St Pancras you can literally roll from the train to your pad.
The Grade II listed building has been lovingly restored following a 12 year, £40 million facelift and now features 91 rooms, a destination restaurant named Plum + Spilt Milk and bar. The rooms come in three types; Couchettes (which are inspired by train sleeper compartments); Wainscot (named after their walnut Wainscot paneling) and Cubitt (named after the architect Lewis Cubitt).
All rooms come with a pretty bumper set of goodies including playlists, a film library, audio book collection and WifI – basically everything you need to travel in comfort. What’s more on every floor you’ll find a pantry offering free snack and drinks.
Room rates start from £250 however if you book sharpish you can take advantage of the opening offer with rooms online now for £132.
