Ham Yard Hotel London

Very few words can really describe this amazing discovery I had with one of my friends one early week day morning when we decided to treat ourselves to a breakfast at a hotel. The Firmdale Group is renowned for it’s style, luxury and service but little did we expect for the newly opened Ham Yard Hotel to be such a pleasant surprise.

Situated in the heart of Soho, this new addition to the London hotel scene has taken everyone by storm. People are hanging out there for drinks or booking events in their bowling alley! Yes this hotel has a private bowling alley in the basement!

The breakfast room was stunning, beautiful seating and very comfortable chairs yet elegant. The menu is simple, reasonably priced and the coffee is definitely worth the price! Its hard to tell the breakfast apart from any other place but the service and the display was the cutting edge factor of my first experience there. I do recommend atleast one visit in a lifetime

The Holborn Dining Room at The Rosewood London!

Rosewood London has been my favourite place since October 2013 i.e. literally since it opened. The hotel has revived Holborn and brought understated luxury and life to the area which was much needed.

I was delighted to have the 31st of March off and use the opportunity to visit the newly opened Holborn Dining Room for breakfast. It was a great Monday morning, the start of British Summer Time and perfect way to start the day.

The Holborn Dining Room in a nutshell is a brasserie offering delicious coffees and a great selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner run by restaurateur Des McDonald.

The way I judge places is if I were asked the question ‘Would you come here alone?’ and my answer is yes, that means the place is somewhere you can call home, come and enjoy a coffee and a nibble without feeling uncomfortable. This is exactly the vibe you get from Holborn Dining. The service is personal, the staff uniforms are very stylish and the food is great quality – you do enjoy every bite.

Β The deli also offers great take away options – next time I am definitely diving in to some muffins. Above all, Holborn Dining is not over the top expensive. It is rather an affordable luxury which also opens to the public and lets them enjoy a taste of The Rosewood.

Rosewood London has filled a gap in the market for London – we really needed a 5 star luxury hotel that would offer a bit of everything and especially in my case, some great coffee!

I would definitely recommend Rosewood as stop for you whilst you are in the search for something fresh and tranquil in London. Though I have heard that the Scarfes Bar is the place to be on weekends and Thursdays!
