Wow! This is what you will exclaim as you walk though the unassuming front door of this hotel. The reception area is placed in the stunning domed Victorian banking hall and it is truly breathtaking.
From the get go you are made to feel welcome by the staff, who invite you to take a seat in the plush lounge area prior to checking you in. You are asked your preferences upon check in, for example, would you prefer still or sparkling water in your room, a small thing but my husband and I typically fight over who gets the one bottle of still water, leaving the loser with the gacky sparkling!
Our room was on the first floor giving us an up close and personal view of the intricacies of the stunning glass dome. The room was built for intimacy, from the dark red walls and dark mahogany furniture to the dimmed and quite frankly sexy lighting. The note in the bathroom invited you to order rose petals and champagne with strawberries, lets be honest here the whole experience screamed SEX, tastefully of course.
We opted not to have breakfast at the hotel instead taking the ten minute walk over the bridge to experience the foodie delights of Borough Market, a must have whilst you are staying here; as such I'm unable to pass comment on the food. We did however sample some of the wonderful Champagne and the amazing concoctions of the bar manager including the beetroot margarita - a must! The bar staff were knowledgable and seriously well versed in the art of Bar!
We WILL be returning, when and only when we can get a weekend babysitter again, if you catch my drift!
