Whilst current restrictions continue to put a dampener on overseas travel, it's never been more tempting to book a hassle-free stay at a luxurious London hotel. If dining like a royal and sleeping like a Queen lure you into temptation, we've found the perfect place…
For an unforgettable experience complete with five-star luxury, situated in the heart of London's romantic Kensington, 100 Queen's Gate Hotel is offering an overnight stay with afternoon tea for two - for an unbeatable price.
Sink into relaxation in the hotel's Deluxe Rooms
The hotel is part of Hilton's Curio Collection, located on Queen's Gate, one of the London's most sought-after addresses. Just a stone's throw from Kensington Palace, The Natural History Museum and the V&A, we found we were rarely short of things to do when the beating heart of London's attractions are within walking distance.
During our stay, we were treated to exquisite décor in the deluxe room, plush kingsize beds and glorious views of London's skyline as part of the tempting package. Where Victorian England meets contemporary design, Curio have craftily created a modern space that echoes the glitz and glamour of William Alexander's lifestyle – the aristocrat who resided in the hotel during the 1870s.
Botanica, the hotel's glass-roofed atrium is a sure highlight of the stay
After a morning of sightseeing, we enjoyed a creatively crafted afternoon tea in the hotel’s glass-roofed atrium room, Botanica. After several rounds of traditional finger sandwiches, you'll want to save yourself for the crisp cinnamon tarts filled with punchy lime mousse - this was a definite showstopper! Or top freshly baked scones with cherry jam, ginger and orange marmalade and decadent pink peppercorn clotted cream.
Dine like the Queen for a five-star afternoon tea
The hotel's nearby restaurants make for an easy meal for the no-fuss foodie – but the hotel's ESQ brasserie is a must-visit spot for an unbeatable atmosphere. ESQ specialises in homemade infused spirits exclusively created by resident mixologists. We sipped away on delicious cocktails and tucked into a carefully selected “small plates” menu, perfect to enhance and delight your taste buds.
