In a new segment for Political Style, I'll be sharing some of my favourite places to visit, shop, eat and stay in London.
First up, is The Cavendish. This is my favourite place to stay whilst in London, for the location, high quality of service, comfortable rooms and general loveliness!
Located just off Piccadilly on Jermyn Street St James, it has the perfect location for visiting the West End, Westminster, the Royal Parks and is a short cab or tube ride away from locations in Kensington, Knightsbridge and the Embankment. The Cavendish boasts great views of the London skyline- and from many of the rooms you can see the London Eye, Westminster, St Paul's and the Shard. (Ask for a room on a high floor for this great view!)
Check-in is at 3pm and the hotel will ring you if your room is ready beforehand. The rooms are comfortably and tastefully decorated, and have great in-house toiletries (from The White Company,) and a dock for your iPod or iPhone. The rooms are super quiet and cozy and make for a great way to switch off from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The staff are always really friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Plus the hotel now has free wi-fi in all the rooms (hooray!) so for tech addicts like me I am sorted.
So if you're off to London consider staying at The Cavendish for a super stay.
