Last weekend I was lucky enough to stay at the 5* Hotel Intercontinental Westminster in London.
We travelled up by coach and were dropped off to a warm welcome and taken straight to a pre arranged lunch. Our bags were stored until our rooms became available. Check in went smoothly.
The hotel is literally a few minutes walk away from Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The London Eye and Aquarium is also a short stroll over Westminster Bridge. We were offered advice as we left of the best tube routes to take and offered an umbrella to take on our travels. Luckily St James Park tube station is literally across the street.
We stayed in a Studio Suite on the fifth floor (six floors in total). Loved the luxurious bathroom with the walk in rain shower and separate bath tub and the Molton Brown amenities which are now tucked very nicely in my Travel Bag for my next trip away!! The towels were massive and light and fluffy as were the Dressing Gowns. There was Free WiFi Internet in the room and throughout the hotel. With the Studio Suites you receive complimentary access to the Club InterContinental Lounge and free breakfast daily. We had a great King Bed and the TV in the wall was a different touch.
In the Evening we had dinner aboard one of The Thames river cruises. To be honest due to the weather I wasn’t really looking forward to this but was pleasantly surprised. We boarded straight away and it was a great evening. It felt really calm considering the winds. We got to see some of London sights at night. It went really quick and the food was lovely. I had a lovely Butternut Squash risotto and a naughty Salted Pistachio Tart!!!
The Gym was empty on the Sunday Morning. Towels and water bottles were readily available. The equipment was fine for a workout away from home.
We had a late breakfast in the Restaurant which was very busy then a stroll over to the London Eye. Lunch was in in the sophisticated Blue Boar Smokehouse and Bar before heading home. The bar was quiet and the service was quick. We had a light lunch and can highly recommend the Fish Finger Sandwich!! Yummy.
I can highly recommend this hotel. My only fault with the room was there was no plug socket by the mirror to plug in my GHD’s. They luckily have a long enough lead to stretch from the minibar area.
