What. a. delight. The hotel is only inches away from South Ken Station and teas are served in the Drawing rooms. The rooms are a quirky wonder, prints of zoo animals peering out from cocktail glasses, mix of vintage and contemporary furniture, relaxed and funky, not an ounce of stuffiness in sight.
I think it may well be one of the coolest hotels I’ve ever seen!
We plumped for both the standard & Xmas teas – a festive twist on the Afternoon tea meant the usual tea included Savoury Gougeres, White Choc scones & mince pies in the mix.
The gougeres and tartines were soft, melt-in-the-mouth taste explosions, the scones soft with lashings of jam & cream and the desserts, well the desserts were too many to get through!
For under £20 each and for the volume of food we had, this was a steal! My verdict: Grab a friend, grab a lot of friends and check it out.
Merry Christmas everyone!
