Focus On: One Aldwych, Covent Garden
If it’s luxury you are after then look no further than the glorious One Aldwych in the heart of London’s West End. The experience starts from the moment you walk in thanks to its Edwardian period architecture.
Theatre lovers will adore its location being so close to a number of different venues, whilst it offers shoppers the chance to explore all the shops, bars and trendy restaurants around Covent Garden.
But you may not want to leave as the luxury experience can be seen from the high ceilings and well turned out staff to the facilities inside.
There is a swimming pool which features a range of underwater sounds not to mention a collection of steam rooms. The health club is one of the best in the capital when it comes to relaxation.
In addition, the three treatments rooms will ensure you feel both relaxed and rejuvenated at least until its time to check out! Why not indulge in one of their extensive massages or therapies using the finest lotions and potions.
But wait, we have not even lifted the lid on those sumptuous rooms. Oozing modernity not to mention enjoying a wealth of mod cons, guests can enjoy a wide variety of services from Frette linen and docks for your iPod to PlanTation toiletries and several other touches.
You can even enjoy a spot of TV from the comfort of your bathroom if it gets a little bit too much. Aside from free Wi-Fi access throughout, rooms offer fresh fruit and blooms which are hand delivered to your door every day. Now that’s what you call service.
There are a couple of excellent dining options available at One Aldwych featuring Indigo which delivers a wealth of modern European dishes.
Axis at One Aldwych is another contender not to be underestimated and provides a tasty Modern British selection with the focus very much on fresh local produce.
The Lobby Bar is always a vibrant and buzzy place for innovative cocktails not to mention a spot of high tea. In fact their latest offering has wowed many critics and diners alike.
Taking its inspiration from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory which has just launched at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, One Aldwych has come up with a truly mesmerising afternoon tea.
Chocoholics will certainly have a field day here with several delights to whet your appetite such as rich golden caramel eggs, blueberry brioche, Cocoa bean financier and more – all supported by the magic and wonder of Roald Dahl.
Throw in an exclusive Cocktail Charlie and a collection of award-winning teas from the Tea Palace and you are in for a genuine decadent experience.
This unique Afternoon tea is priced at £34.50 per person, whilst if you want to upgrade it will cost £43 per head and includes either a choice of a glass of Lallier Grande Réserve Champagne or their signature cocktail.
One Aldwych sets the benchmark in hospitality, but there are other hotels in Covent Garden which guests can enjoy. Time for tea don’t you think?
