One of London's finest luxury hotels just 25 metres from Eurostar at St Pancras International and actually within Kings Cross Station, offering a 24 hour front desk, free Wi-Fi and a complimentary comprehensive in-room entertainment package. Befitting the GNH's rich architectural heritage, the hotel's bedrooms have been sensitively restored with a design that exudes elegance and grace.

Walls, floors, ceilings and windows are acoustically lined, creating a peaceful cocoon. The mechanical and electrically systems are state of the art, furniture is bespoke designed and hand crafted by Italian and British artisans, and only the very best fixtures and fittings have been used - Loewe LCD HD televisions, top of the range Hypnos beds and Lefroy Brooks bathroom furniture. The hotel is home to one of London's finest destination restaurants, Plum + Spilt Milk, whilst on the ground floor sits GNH Bar and Terrace a destination cocktail bar, with a stunning interior serving the very best food, champagne and cocktails.

We chose The Great Northern Hotel for its convenient location between the Kings Cross and St Pancrass stations prior to our early morning Eurostar departure. Our Edwardian bedroom on the top (5th) floor was beautifully decorated and furnished with a luxurious feel while only of standard size for London hotels. We took breakfast in the 1st floor restaurant with all items ordered and priced alacarte. The food was individually prepared and of a high quality. Our only complaint was the insistance of the waitress and receptionist that we our breakfast ws an extra cost despite showing them our booking confirmation noting the inclusion fo breakfast. The receptionist later accepted that they had made a mistake with no apology.

First of all, I can’t believe I hesitated to book this hotel as I was worried about noise given its location. The hotel has the BEST soundproofing I’ve ever experienced anywhere and the rooms are dead quiet. Really, you can’t hear a thing. It’s bliss. Most of all though the staff really make this place. We had great service the whole week we stayed. Special mention to Luca and Visar, who put up with our room indecisiveness at the beginning and didn’t flinch a bit with any of our requests. Great location too bang in the middle of London, convenient to everything and lots of wonderful restaurants in the area.

Such attentive, courteous and immaculate staff. All good from the moment we arrived - led by a concierge to our room, shown the amenities. - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast room/restaurant was exceptional. Definitely would revisit.

We booked via a special offer so we’re half expecting a hard to let room. How wrong we were. We had a spacious and airy room - overlooking the roof of the underground station which is a design feature in itself. So although between two mainline stations and on a busy road outside, our room was quiet even with window open. Yet location is perfect. Taxis on doorstep, underground to anywhere next door buses directly opposite. We however explored Granary Square and the Canal - great atmosphere Good bars and restaurants our type of shops Hôtel so clean and with luxury touches. Nespresso machine and pods in room but also full pantry area serving a number of rooms where wide range of teas and more types of coffee with fruit and sweets. Toiletries provided were Malin & Goetz which were available in Space NK nearby. Staff discreet but smiles and polite Highly recommend

On arrival we had some difficulty locating the reception desk as there was no sign at the entrance. Our room on the 4th floor was comfortable and very quiet but we didn't like being able to see into the bathroom and therefore the actions required to perform bodily functions. Also there was nowhere to stand shower gel etc in the bathroom. Breakfast was served in the 1st floor restaurant and was good and efficiently served.
