The UK’s capital city, London, is the perfect place for a mini moon break if you want to treat yourself to something extra special. We checked in at this beautiful five-star hotel for a taste of the high life.
The Lanesborough overlooks Hyde Park Corner, a short walk from Harrods and Harvey Nichols in nearby Knightsbridge. Buckingham Palace, the V&A, Soho, and a host of restaurants and cafés are all within striking distance, too. The doormen welcomed us like old friends on arrival, setting the tone for a wonderful stay.
The Lanesborough is beautiful. Having recently undergone a full renovation, this grand old mansion is truly impressive. With butler service, a stunning marbled bathroom, the comfiest bed ever, and fluffy robes, the suites are totally luxurious. Dinner at the Céleste restaurant was incredible – the five-course tasting menu under twinkling chandeliers will not easily be forgotten! Breakfast was an equally grand affair – silver pots of coffee and the best salmon and scrambled eggs to be found in London!
