Every so often, we all feel the need to escape from the hustle and bustle of London and step into a place where you can relax, indulge in some good food, and not leave Zone 1. A little while ago, I had the chance to take a tour around The Kingsley, Thistle Holborn, where you can do just that.
A beautiful Edwardian building in the heart of Bloomsbury, The Kingsley offers 4-star accommodation and is close to multiple London attractions. Whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure, this hotel can provide all the facilities you need, from standard bedrooms, to deluxe suites, and from meeting rooms to a 100 seater conference theatre.
On our tour, organised by the fabulous people at Joe’s Bloggers, we started at the Kingsley Two Brasserie, serving a range of British and European cuisines in a spacious, modern dining room. Into the bar we went where we found a cosy roaring fire, and a long drinks menu to suit every taste, as well as the chance to enjoy Afternoon Tea, a must for anyone celebrating a special occasion. In the rooms, en suites, internet access and a super comfy bed as standard.
Whatever the occasion, the staff at The Kingsley are on hand to make the experience as pleasurable as possible. We were there for an awesome Halloween make-up class, and found the hotel to be decorated perfectly with Halloween cupcakes at each check-in desk. I’ve no doubt that with the festive season upon us, the hotel will be transformed into a classy, Christmas delight.
So whether you’re travelling to London for the holidays, treating your significant other to a celebratory night away, or simply wanting a cosy retreat for your afternoon tea, The Kinglsey can cater to your every whim. And…unless it’s Halloween…there’ll be no scary ghouls around like there were for our tour!
