There are in-room spa and relaxation treatments at some of London’s best hotels. For your next London getaway, […]

The hotel’s new “Wellness on the Move” package will launch in April 2017 and include “Spa-in-Your-Suite” and “Eating-for-Wellness”. Instead of having to make your way […]

When you think of hunting for game, you probably picture an autumnal scene with people in tweed, guns and a couple of dogs. So it’s the perfect time of year for a spot of shooting with St James’s Hotel and Club. You won’t actually be shooting any game with the hotel’s new package. But you […]

London’s hotels love a good excuse to create a special afternoon tea menu. Some events, like the Queen’s 90th birthday, are one-offs. Others, such as the Chelsea Flower Show, come around every year. Traditional afternoon teas are sometimes seen as a bit flowery and feminine, featuring dainty cakes and tiny sandwiches. There’s been a move […]

There’s a lot of London to see, and you can’t see it all at once. You can try to take in as much as you can, however, by taking a tour. You could tour the city by walking or perhaps hopping on the tube, but there are more exciting ways of seeing London. You can […]

4 London hotels for an unforgettable birthday.

by Laura on September 21, 2015

Birthdays should be happy occasions, but we often don’t bother with them as much when we’re older. If you think it’s high-time you celebrated in style, why not do it at a London hotel? If you have a big birthday coming up or just want to do something different, a stay in London could be […]

“Tis a gift to be simple,” the Shaker hymn says, and sometimes it’s the simplest things that make the biggest impact. Hotels should take note; you don’t have to be super-sophisticated to make a difference to your guests. More coffee! Look, it’s not rocket science. Some of us are caffeine fiends. I’ll typically have a […]

by Elizabeth Hands on October 16, 2014

There’s a reason Downton Abbey is watched by millions. There’s something fascinating about getting a glimpse of what goes on downstairs. It’s where all the action happens. So it’s little wonder some of the capital’s top hotels have decided to let us in on some of the secrets of what goes on behind the scenes: […]

International influences in London hotels.

by Andrea on August 15, 2014

Think London, and many think of bobbies on the beat, guardsmen in their bearskins and red tunics, red phone boxes (not as many as there used to be), red buses and black taxis. Very English. Add the curious ceremony of afternoon tea, the full English breakfast and a good slice of roast beef with horseradish, and […]

The trend in hotel televisions.

by Andrea on May 21, 2014

Once upon a time, when your hotel critic was still writing with a crayon or a big red pencil, you used to be lucky to get a small television perched on top of the wardrobe. Alas, in some hotels you still are. But increasingly hotels are upping their game to offer much more. For instance, […]

“How would you like your scrambled eggs done?” I’m used to being asked how I’d like my steak but scrambled eggs don’t usually come with a choice. Well, soft, I thought, and well mixed up, without those little bits of solid egg white I detest: “Sloppy” I said. I was sitting at a table in […]

As any regular reader will know, London Hotels Insight is fighting the good fight for free WiFi in all hotels. If a guesthouse in Orchha, India or a hostel in Bangkok can provide free WiFi, why can’t London’s five star hotels? But there’s free WiFi and there’s good WiFi – not all hotels that provide free WiFi know […]

I review a lot of hotels. From hostels to 5-star luxury hotels, both chains and boutiques. I’ve stayed in one-pound-a night beach huts in India, enjoyed thirty-ninth-story views of New York and, as a blogger for London Hotels Insight, I of course know London particularly well. It’s only every so often I come across a hotel […]

I recently took a trip to St James’s Hotel and Club to sample their afternoon tea. Tucked away on a side-street, off St James’s Street in Mayfair, the five-star boutique hotel was formerly a private members club. It’s easy to see how its discreet location was the perfect place to host aristocracy and travelling diplomats […]
