Great Northern Hotel – King’s Cross

Photo 1 of

King’s Cross has emerged as one of the most vibrant and culturally rich quarters of London and the ‘back to the bricks’ restoration of this once weary, Grade II listed, 1854 railway hotel is testament to the first-class design and exemplary standards of hospitality we enjoy today. The GNH, with its packed cocktail bar, glamorous restaurant and beautiful yet affordable bedrooms, appeals to a far wider market than just the UK rail and Eurostar traveller. The restaurant, Plum + Spilt Milk, is one of London’s finest and a destination in itself. On each of the five floors of bedrooms, at the end of wide, gracious and gently curving original corridors, you’ll find a charming complimentary pantry stocked with homemade cakes, iconic candies and an industrial-sized Nespresso machine. The bedrooms are chic and elegant, with bespoke furniture. Most fun are the petite Couchette rooms, designed to resemble railway sleeping cars and instantly likeable. An excellent address. Doubles from £249.
