Trip Moments

Greater London,Recommendations
Had a weekend visit for my husbands birthday. We stayed in an executor suite with terrace and club lounge access. A little disappointed with the room and terrace, I thought it would be bigger and the terrace was more like a balcony with a couple of rattan chairs, whereas the rooms with a balcony are much smaller and no furniture at all. The room was very clean. Other than having to call reception 3 times to get a tray of food left behind from the previous guests, outside the room. It wasn’t very nice to see when entering the room and it wasn’t taken away until 10pm which was disappointing. Melissa on reception was very apologetic and made sure it finally got taken away. Carluccio’s restaurant - WOW WOW WOW! The food was amazing here, the staff were brilliant accommodating polite and couldn’t do enough for you! It was definitely the highlight of my visit here and so worth eating here. The food was fresh and delicious! Johnathan the head chef made sure everything was at an excellent standard and I can’t give him enough credit for top quality food! The club lounge perks were worth having as I could go in there at any time for a bottle of Pepsi or some fresh fruit or crisps and was totally complimentary. They also have desserts in the evening along with cheese and crackers. We went swimming on the first night and the pool was lovely. Overall we had a great stay and it’s a beautiful hotel inside, although it didn’t look that appealing from the outside. The hotel is in a nice quiet part of London in Swiss Cottage. Getting to and from Kings Cross was a bit of a trek as the journey from Finchley Road tube station is a good 10 mins walk or a £6 Uber ride. Swiss Cottage tube is much nearer for other destinations. Our bedroom was spacious and very quiet. The bed was super comfortable and they supplied us with some foam pillows which was great. It was my birthday on the day we arrived and the hotel had decorated our bedroom with some balloons and provided some Prosecco and chocolates - a nice touch and much appreciated. Thank you. #themepark#zoo#nationalpark#lakes#beaches
