If you are struggling with where to stay, we highly recommend The Westminster Hotel, which has been newly refurbished and is home to 464 uniquely designed bedrooms, event spaces, an STK steakhouse, a 24-hour gym and even its own bowling alley.

We definitely did not expect to find such a stylish hotel when following our Google Map to a road just off the river, but the stunning design makes sure to stand out. The property takes inspiration from its location with themes of intrigue and anonymity, matched with a playful balance between the traditional and the modern.

The rooms are the perfect mix of traditional and modern

All of the rooms feature separate bedroom and dressing areas, floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of amenities such as a 49-inch TV, a rainfall shower and a Nespresso coffee machine.

The STK restaurant serves delicious meals, from quick business lunches to a full three-course dinner. The steaks, unsurprisingly, are melt in the mouth, and we highly recommend the calamari and burrata starters. Don't forget to upgrade your fries to parmesan and truffle - you won't regret it!
