The Royal Park is an intimate London boutique hotel offering 48 exquisitely appointed rooms and suites. Ideally located on Westbourne Terrace, it lies to the north of Hyde Park, London's largest royal park. The luxury London hotel comprises three carefully restored, mid 19th-century Grade II listed townhouses and is perfect for business, leisure or romantic trysts.
Whether you choose the delightful Classic Double or the opulent Four-Poster Suite, all rooms offer handmade Bellestrata beds, antique furniture and period features with 24-hour room service and a well-connected, 24-hour Concierge. Private dining is also available in the Green Room, so you can plan an intimate meal or a feast for up to 14 people, overseen by the former chief sommelier at Le Gavroche. If you want to host something a little more informal, and a little boozier, cocktail parties can be arranged in the hotel's Terrace Gardens. A complimentary Internet connection is available throughout the hotel; guests receive a turn down service and thoughtful extras such as a welcome drink and a free glass of champagne in the evening, to make your stay that little bit more special.
Aside from the hotel's exceedingly chic and elegant interiors, it is also very well located to explore west London. Situated just a five-minute walk north of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace and Gardens, in sunny weather you can ride a horse from Hyde Park Stables, ride The Serpentine's solar-powered shuttle boat, hire a tennis court or simply put up a deck chair and watch the world go by.
If the weather is typically inclement, you can stroll around The Serpentine Gallery's modern art collection or visit Kensington Palace, former residence of Queen Victoria and Princess Diana, and current residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (also known as Wills and Kate). For sophisticated evening entertainment, you can stroll across the park to the Royal Albert Hall, for some of London's best musical performances in a stunning Victorian building, or you can head to the Criterion Theatre nearby for drama, cabaret and comedy from up and coming writers. If you are travelling with children, they will enjoy Madame Tussaud's waxwork museum in nearby Baker Street and the Sherlock Holmes Museum, which transports you back to the seedy underworld of Victorian London, as navigated by the famed fictional detective. Or if you wish to indulge in retail therapy, Oxford Street shops are just a hop, skip and jump away, so the best of London is all just a pleasant walk from your hotel doorstep.
The hotel has excellent travel links; with Paddington Station just a few minutes walk away. The Heathrow Express Train terminates here, so you can be at the airport in as little as 30 minutes. From Paddington Underground you can also reach Victoria Station (where the Gatwick Express Train terminates); King's Cross St Pancras station (where the Eurostar terminus is located); and many other central London locations. If you are driving to the hotel, it is situated just off the main A4 road, which can be accessed via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone.
This hotel is a fantastic option for the area, with friendly staff across the board, who will treat you as a cherished guest; comfortable, stylish rooms which are full of character; and a quiet, safe area with many attractions and convenient transport links nearby, you really can't go wrong.
