GO scenic accomodation in London

Scenic accommodation in London Just because you’re in the heart of a vibrant city doesn’t mean that you can’t find peace and quiet. There are plenty of alternatives to the sprawling and bustling city hotels.

For a touch of luxury visit The Montague On The Gardens [map] , a delightful four-star hotel at Montague Street, WC1. Close to some fantastic gardens and with its own conservatory and al fresco dining in good weather, The Montague is a great place for romance or if you’re in the mood to treat yourself. Bedrooms are elegant and offer visitors personal touches that make this a very special accommodation option.

If you’re looking for a glimpse of Dickensian England book into The Kensington Gardens Hotel [map], Kensington Gardens Square, W2, where you’ll find a luxurious hotel overlooking a pretty little Victorian Square. Its close proximity to Hyde Park and Notting Hill makes this hotel a popular place with tourists from overseas.

Historians also head to The Rookery [map], Peter’s Lane, Cowcross Street, EC1. Located in converted 18th century houses The Rookery offers visitors modern luxuries in a traditional Dickensian setting and is close to Smithfield market. A visit here is a step back in time that travellers lap up and modern comforts such as Egyptian linen make it a great place to rest and relax.

For a view that’s sure to increase the heartbeat of any anglophile book into The London Bridge Hotel [map], SE1. This is the place for stunning views across the River Thames and London Bridge itself. You’ll also be in close proximity to all of the best tourist sights. The hotel itself is four-star and has a Malaysian Restaurant serving a range of Malaysian, Indian and Chinese authentic cuisine.

The charming London Elizabeth Hotel [map] is such a peaceful place that it’s easy to forget it’s in such a central location. Overlooking Hyde Park, the pretty London Elizabeth, W23, offers superior accommodation in a privately-owned setting. This, of course, means that all needs are catered for and friendly staff are on hand to ensure you enjoy your stay. The Rose Garden Restaurant is where the head chef prepares a range of European cuisine infused with herbs from the very garden that the restaurant is named after.

Beyond North West London is the district of Harrow, close enough to London for day trips and evening excursions but far enough away to make you feel like you’re in the English countryside.

The Tudor Lodge Hotel [map] is a converted 16th century farmhouse surrounded by two acres of gardens that ooze charm. Many of the original features have been restored so the hotel doesn’t loose any of its old world character. Easily accessible from the M1 and M25, staying here will allow you to enjoy the serenity of the area while being less thanhalf an hour from central London.

Close to North London and set in 35 acres of grounds the West Park Lodge is a picture perfect place to stay. The elegance of this accommodation exudes across the grounds from the beautifully kept garden, to the double rosette restaurant, to the refined, individually decorated rooms. Guests can also treat themselves to spa treatments including Japanese Silk Booster facials and an aroma spa ocean wrap. With all this located just 12 miles away from Piccadilly Circus you’ll find this four-star country hotel a practical and palatial retreat.

However, if its city scenic that you’re looking for then you may want to make your reservations at the Spring Park Hotel. With its 50 rooms and on site bar, the hotel caters for all comers from holidaymakers to business travellers. However it’s the hotel’s location overlooking the tranquillity of London’s Finsbury Park that will be of particular interest to scenery seekers.

When considering somewhere scenic to stay in East London you may need to venture a little outside to find the more picturesque places to stay. For example The Menizies Prince Regent [map] in Ilford is a four-star hotel set in the private gardens of a listed Georgian house. This hotel works as an excellent retreat for anyone looking for comfort and a touch of luxury – a great place to enjoy the peace outside the bustle of the city. However for those who don’t want to get too far away from it all, the hotel’s Essex location is not too far from shops and entertainment.
