Hotels in London can go a little over looked. Unless you have a boutique offering or outstanding establishment that gets a lot of attention, and rightly so. Some its heritage, like the Savoy. Or the Mandarin Oriental. I could go on. I thought it would be great to try out The Grange Hotel St Pauls. Something new, something different from my usual choice of hotel venue.
Tucked away on a little side street opposite the most stunning cathedral in the world, (no I’m not bias because its London 😉 ) This lovely 5 star hotel doesn’t look much from the outside. But inside it’s very modern and clean, but not in a clinical way. It has a lively bar, which we enjoyed some fizz at of course. And checked into our gorgeous room too. We thought we might as well stay the night. Why the hell not, it’d be rude right.
Dinner was served in a glass atrium in the centre of the hotel. I do apologise for the redness of my pictures but the sexy lighting didn’t give my iPhone much of a chance. But we wont hold that against The Grange.
3 courses each, all of which were presented to a very high standard. Tasty, and good portion sizes. Only thing lacking was the service. Really wasn’t very consistent, and in some cases were waiting a long time for drinks and in between courses. We didn’t mind so much as the fizz kept us going and we were enjoying a slower pace to the evening than usual.
We had a great night and next day here, including the spa and a great buffet breakfast! Which was amazing! Soooo much choice. Sadly no pics of this as I left my phone in the room. I would recommend The Grange, not over all hotels I’ve stayed at in London. But for a last minute stay it worked very well. More like a 4 star than 5 star. Looking forward to going back to see if they took feedback on service into consideration.
