The Lanesborough London is the grande dame of London hotels and a favourite for all our ladies, but this opulent hotel wasn’t like this from the start. In 1719 Lanesborough House was the seat of the Earl of Lanesborough, but sadly after only 100 years it fell into disrepair and was demolished. The site was repurposed and St George’s Hospital was built in 1844. From the outside it looks like a hospital, but inside it is anything but. Opulent and warm, with chandeliers and fresh flowers at almost every corner. It may be a historic building, but it still looks sumptuous and sophisticated.
Located in an opulent neoclassical mansion overlooking leafy Hyde Park. Close to the luxury shops and upmarket restaurants of Knightsbridge, the historic property provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable date.
If you want to explore London as a tourist, all you need to do is hop on the tube, as Hyde Park Corner is right outside the hotel’s main entrance. With the Piccadilly line, it’s only a few stops to tourist hotspots like Leicester Square and Covent Garden. If you are looking for a more sophisticated experience, you can stroll to Harrods or Harvey Nichols, spend the money on Sloane Street or browse the shops on Lowndes Street.
The Royal Suite
With 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and with enough space for 18 guests, this suite is certainly palatial. As you would expect, a butler is on hand 24 hours a day to attend to your every need. If you wish to go out on the town, a luxurious chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce is at your disposal. However, if you wish to drive yourself, a luxurious supercar of your choice is available for you to use throughout your stay. You can even choose a different model each day if you wish. The Royal Suit is almost 5000 square feet, about ten times the size of many one-bedroom London bungalows. If you consider yourself a king, treat your companion like a queen in this decadent London accommodation overlooking the Wellington Arch and Hyde Park.
Afternoon Tea at The Lanesborough
Afternoon tea at The Lanesborough is a fabulous treat for two. Impress your date by booking the Meadow afternoon tea or Valentine’s afternoon tea. The Meadow Tea is inspired by London’s parks and offers plenty of decadent pastries, cakes and tarts for those with a sweet tooth. The delicate sandwiches can be served with a range of teas or, if you prefer, champagne. On Valentine’s Day, afternoon tea is served with rosé champagne and a rose cake specially made for two. Afternoon tea is served in The Lanesborough Grill under the stunning glass dome.
The Lanesborough Grill
If you are looking for modern British cuisine from a Michelin-starred chef, then Lanesborough Grill has everything your heart desires. Think Beef Wellington and Dover sole, delicious British dishes served in a stunning location. You dine under a beautiful glass dome with crystal chandeliers, often accompanied by live musicians. On Friday and Saturday evenings, you will be entertained by a pianist or singer while you devour the culinary creations of Shay Cooper.
The Library Bar
A mysterious, hidden bar where you can while away the afternoon or start a wonderful evening. It’s one of those bars where you feel so at home and the service is so good that you can lose all sense of time. They say the atmosphere is like a private club, you feel familiar and homely. The Library Bar at The Lanesborough offers a cocktail cream tea pairing and various other light snacks. The cocktails are excellent, with several in-house mixologists working behind the esteemed bar. Go there, enjoy a cocktail or three with a stunning companion on your arm and make it a date to remember.
The Garden Room
A secret garden for adults only, hidden behind Hyde Park. Cigars, champagne, cocktails, fine wines and light bites are served in this little oasis. Blankets and heaters ensure that this idyllic secret garden can be enjoyed all year round, despite the sometimes harsh British weather. The garden also has a walk-in humidifier.
The Lanesborough Club and Spa
This club has been called London’s best fitness club. Here you can pamper yourself from head to toe or sweat and work out if you prefer. Whether you want to relax or run a marathon, the Lanesborough Club and Spa can fulfil your every wellness wish. From hydro facials to massages, the spa offers an extensive treatment list with in-house experts for body and face. The hotel has a beautiful hair salon so your beautiful companion can take care of her tresses before a lovely date. Do not miss the “Time for Two” package, specially designed for couples, including couples. A butler will guide you through your bespoke spa day and you’ll both be looked after in this luxurious oasis. If the two of you would rather get your blood pumping, a state-of-the-art gym with cardio and strength training equipment and TRX systems is available.
