Haymarket Hotel

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

the-haymarket-hotel.jpgOne of London’s finest hotels, The Haymarket is situated in the centre of the mayhem, in the heart of the theatre district surrounded by some of the best restaurants, bars and tourist attractions. Do we need to mention how lovely the hotel is?

Amongst the 50 spacious bedrooms and suites with an exclusive townhouse, the English style hotel has a colourful, exquisite and stylish restaurant and bar called Brumus with brasserie style food, a wide range of cocktails and wines served by the glass. An 18 meter swimming pool, treatment room and work – out room.

Rooms start around £250 per night. For more information about the hotel, facilities, and to make a reservation visit: www.firmdale.com. The Haymarket Hotel is located at 1 Suffolk Place, London SW1. Telephone: 020 7470 4007.

Yotel – Pod Hotels Come To London

Friday, September 28th, 2007

premuimworkdesk.jpgSimon woodruff the entrepreneur behind Yo Sushi has brought another great Japanese idea to the UK. Yotel is the latest space saving hotel. The concept has been copied from the Japanese pod hotels that have been popping up all over Tokyo in recent years. The bijou hotels feature tiny rooms with just a bed and a tiny area of floor space – standard rooms feature a single bed which is apparently large enough for a cosy two and premium rooms offer a double bed and couch. Storage is built into walls but you do get your own wet room with monsoon shower!

At the moment the only Yotels in the UK are located at Gatwick and Heathrow airports. The Yotel is aimed at allowing tired passengers to get some sleep while they wait for their delayed planes. For this reason rooms can be booked for as little as four hours at a time. There are plans to open a hotel in London’s west end soon. I’m sure they’ll become a perfect retreat from those who have stayed out passed the last train….although I somehow doubt they’ll be letting out rooms for four hours only in that part of town! Standard pods at Heathrow and Gatwick cost 25 pounds for four hours and are charged per hour after that at prices from £5 per hour – make sure you have a good alarm clock with you when you stay!

Cheap and Cheerful Accomodation

Cheap and Cheerful AccomodationLooking for a cheap and funky place to stay in London? Well if you don’t mind sharing a room then Generator Hostels could be the perfect place to crash. There’s one in Berlin and one in Bloomsbury London which is a great central location for trendy East London areas such as Shoreditch as well as popular West London nights out such as Chinawhites.

Although similar to traditional hostels with dorm like rooms for 12 people (you can choose mixed sex or female only costing a meagre £10 per person) you can also get smaller four or two bed rooms that you can share with mates for a fraction of the price of a hotel. A four bed room can work out to as little as £17 per person in the summer season. If you a feeling a bit shy, there are a few one bedroom private rooms again costing much less than a London 2 or 3 star hotel. There is a bar in the hostel and various activities take place every night….most of which involve drinking! Take the Generator tour on the website to see pictures of where you can stay

Celebrate Mother's Day In London

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

MotherThere are loads of things to do and see in London this Sunday – treat your mum in style! Perhaps a VIP Champagne flight on the London Eye or afternoon tea at the Marriott County Hall sound like perfect ways to spend your day – or maybe your mum would prefer the annual Florimania event at Hampton Court Palace?

If your mum’s more impressed with food and drink, the Royal Garden Hotel is offering a Mother’s Day lunch package with a four course menu, or No. 5 Cavendish Square is offering a three course meal for just £25. Or how about a Sunday lunch cruise along the Thames?

Let’s hope for some sunshine too – that would make the flight on the London Eye or the cruise along the Thames perfect.

Champagne High Tea at the Ritz

Thursday, March 8th, 2007

I have just been looking at some great Mother’s Day deals over at lastminute.com and came across this Champagne High Tea for four that I thought was a great idea and quite reasonably priced for the Ritz Hotel. You can purchase a gift voucher then book up an evening in the hotel where you’ll be served a choice of sandwiches, scones with jam, pastries, cakes, a selection of teas or coffee and a glass of Ritz Champagne.

This would make a great family Mother’s Day pressie or just a nice chance for you to visit the Ritz with a small group of friends. Sittings are at 7.30pm and there is an estimated waiting list of 4-6 weeks. The champagne tea will cost £150 for the four of you, that’s only £37.50 each! You could even catch a film or show afterwards.
