We've always wanted to stay in the St Pancras Hotel since it was reopened a few years back, especially being big fans of gothic architecture.
Unfortunately we hadn't realised that some of the 'cheaper' rooms were in a new wing, so we missed out on seeing the old restored parts of the hotel in all it's gothic splendour ...except for the public areas of course like the booking hall.
I guess the rooms in the older parts are much more exclusive with a tariff to match and probably beyond our budget... A shame.
However our room was very good and a decent size. The twin beds were extremely comfortable and nice and firm how we like them! The decor was modern with a few traditional twists. Sound proofing was excellent.
At nearly £250 a night we would expect to have free wi-fi, but this was not the case.
All in all an excellent hotel, but had I known we weren't going to be staying in the original parts of the hotel, maybe I would have booked elsewhere, and just gone to the booking hall for afternoon tea instead? I should have done more research I guess, it's not the fault of the hotel.
