Name: The Westbourne Hyde Park
Location: United Kingdom
If you’re a city lover like me, there’s always something fabulous about staying right in the heart of a city, at the centre of the action – especially if that city is London and the hotel is the very stylish Westbourne Hyde Park!
The Westbourne Hyde Park is located in the very centre of London in Bayswater, just one street away from the iconic Hyde Park. Your nearest tube stations are Lancaster Gate and Paddington, and you are within walking distance or a short tube away from major London landmarks including; Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Oxford Street, Portobello Market, Kensington Palace and the Royal Albert Hall. You’re also in a great position for the most popular London museums; whether you opt for science, natural history or art and design, there’s something for you.
Style & Character
Billed as a contemporary boutique hotel, the Westbourne Hyde Park more than delivers in this regard; the interior is slick, sophisticated and luxurious with state of the art technology and a wow-reception area. The hotel is housed in 8 extensively-renovated Victorian terrace houses (one of which is a Grade II listed building) which are beautiful and quintessentially “London”.
Service & Facilities
If your visit includes business, there’s a well-equipped meeting room for up to 12 and lunch can also be provided for your delegates. There is complimentary Wi-Fi available throughout the hotel and a lovely bar – but more on that later. The team here are friendly, efficient and helpful; several are multi-lingual too. The cleanliness of the hotel is notable, it really gleams!
The 96 rooms and suites are all newly designed and so are gorgeous and sparkly! They have been kitted out with luxurious finishing touches – famous super-comfortable Hypnos beds, wonderful rainfall showers, blackout curtains and Elemis toiletries to make you feel more than at home. There are also high spec mini kitchens with premium Vileroy & Boch crockery and cutlery, Nespresso machines, a fridge, electric hob and microwave; super-handy for slightly longer stays, it’s rare to get such facilities in central-London hotels and almost feels like a mini-apartment. The gadgets will please any tech-lover too; 40-inch Smart TV’, Kube KS Clocks and individually controlled air conditioning. Pick from Deluxe Studios or Deluxe Suites which have an added lounge area; perfect for those longer stays, if you have a family or just because you deserve to treat yourself!
Food & Drink
The ground floor is home to the W Lounge and Bar; a great spot to relax after a busy day sightseeing or the ideal first stop on a night out on the tiles. There’s a great selection of wines, champagnes and spirits available; chill on the sofas or sit at the cocktail tables and people-watch! For dining, there are more than 17,000 restaurants in London so it’s no exaggeration to say that you can always find whatever you fancy! For some assistance in narrowing down this list, check out the hotel’s online restaurant guide or ask the staff for tips, there’s several notable restaurants a short walk from the hotel and they’ll be more than happy to advise you.
