WHERE Located close to Paddington tube station, near Hyde Park.
THE VIBE Approachable and friendly.
THE ROOM Overlooking the lush greenery of Hyde Park, our room at the Lancaster Hotel London affords spectacular views and an intimacy with iconic landmarks like the Marble Arch. After a long day, we sink into our plush bed unaware of anything until a slither of sunshine peeps through in the morning.
DON’T MISS Tea time at the hotel. Welcomed with a table laden with delights, including scones as soft as pillows filled with clotted cream and luscious jam, cake pops covered with white chocolate and raspberry, scrumptious minute pistachio macaroons, apple and honey cupcakes, fruit tarts, and caramel hazelnut tranches, all made by talented Chef Ben Purton. Switch back and forth from the sweet delights to the savoury petite tea sandwiches delicate with cucumber, salmon, cheese and eggs fillings. Forgo a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne (Rosé) for the delicious Tennessee Honey tea cocktail – the perfect marriage of honey and the authentic taste of bourbon, with a note of cinnamon.
