Great Hotel, great location and fabulous architecture in a very historic building.
We had a perfectly good standard King size double room in the Barlow Wing (as the “shed” where the Euro Star pulls into is called the Barlow Shed). Fortunately we also had access to the Chambers Club for breakfast, to relax and for evening drinks. (Great service by the way).
We didn’t get to try the Hotel Restaurant, Gilberts, as we had early theatre tickets (Top Hat – a must see) but we love the hotel and the bar (yes pricy but different) is always full of very different types.
Sunday we did Camden Market, easy 20 minute walk so forget the tube, and visited the old St Pancras Parish Church on the way back. Both well worth the visit and I don’t know why we’ve not been to Camden market before.
On the concourse outside of the ticket office bar make sure you take in the full splendour of Paul Days statue “The meeting place” and the freeze around it. Surely one of the most beautiful statues in London.
The pool, and Spa, in the basement area which used to be a luggage storage area I think is very unusual. You swim among Victorian brick arches!.
Theatre night we ate at Wahaca (excellent - see my review) and we also visited Buckingham Palace which was superb value.
Still my favourite London hotel, third visit, and we’ll be back London Marathon week 2014.
