A Luxury Night At Royal Lancaster Hotel Review




Over the Valentine’s Weekend, Royal Lancaster kindly offered to host my boyfriend and I for the night.

When it comes to staycations you guys know how much I love exploring London and trying different hotels out. So when Royal Lancaster kindly offered to host my boyfriend and I over the Valentine’s weekend, you know I couldn’t resist.

I’d never stayed in the hotel before and it was one of my must visit hotels. Everything about the hotel draws me in. I love the fact that it’s location is so central. The views are incredible and the hotel has gorgeous white marble all throughout the entrance.



Location

The location for Royal Lancaster is a travellers dream. It’s right next to a tube station, a ten-minute walk to marble arch and right on the front doorstep is Hyde Park and the Kensington Gardens.

It’s a little surreal having such a large park in central London, and from Royal Lancaster you have some of the most incredible views of the park and the rest of London.

Our room was on the 15th floor and we could see right across London to the.



Room

We stayed in one of Royal Lancaster's Double Deluxe rooms. The room came with a huge fluffy double bed, a great bathroom and the most incredible views over Hyde Park.


I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels all over the world, but I’ve never felt as comfortable as I did in this particular room. I loved the fact that at the foot of the bed was a couch. I find that rooms this size usually have an armchair and a desk chair, but nowhere to unwind and relax other than the bed. 



Food

The hotel has two in-house restaurants, Island Grill a gastro American menu and Nipa Thai I will try to book into the Thai restaurant another time as the concierge had highly recommended it to us. 


My boyfriend loves hotel breakfasts, I much prefer having breakfast in the room, in my robe relaxing, but he absolutely loves buffets as he likes to try a little bit of everything he likes. So this time, I we decided to go down to the breakfast on the second floor. But next hotel we stay at, we’re having it in the room! It’s a compromise we’ve come up with to make us both happy.


Despite my initial wishes, I’m really glad he convinced me to make the short journey down the lift as it was absolutely spectacular drinking my latte people watching in Hyde Park. As it was a beautiful sunny morning there were a lot of people walking around and embracing the sun. It really felt like I was away somewhere and not in central London.


We decided to go for poached eggs on muffins, I had smoked salmon and he went for ham. As well as the A La Cart menu there was a range of different fruits and baked goods which we also thoroughly enjoyed.


The Service.

As always I was impressed with the overall service at the hotel. Although we were only there for a day, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful to.

The lovely receptionist came up to show us to our room and make sure everything was ok. I always find that it makes such a huge difference as some times hotel hallways can get a little confusing and when you’ve refused any help downstairs by the bellman, traipsing around a hotel looking for your room is not ideal.

Overall, we had a wonderful time at Royal Lancaster and would definitely come back and stay here again.

Thank you to Royal Lancaster for hosting us and this gifted experience in exchange for coverage.
