The Covent Garden Hotel

Our hotel for the London weekend was The Covent Garden Hotel. Unlike many counterparts named after locations that are situated miles away from them, this hotel is right in the heart of Covent Garden. Part of the small boutique chain Firmdale Hotels, the Covent Garden is superb from start to finish.

With uber cool modern/classic eclectic interiors, subdued lighting and amazing service, we really can’t praise it highly enough. The breakfasts were top of the range too (you know me and the breakfasts). Definitely not a bargain, but it delivers a quality London experience that is right up there with the very best the capital has to offer.

The first floor lounge is a beautiful place to take tea.

The on-street tables are the perfect place to watch the world go by with a glass of something cold.

Standard breakfast was supplemented by daily specials – this was fried eggs and spicy tomatoes on sour dough – along with juice and smoothies of the day.

  1. Looks fab Phil – on my list of hotels to stay at in the capital. I’m currently liking High Road House, part of the Babington group. It’s just near a client, so perfect location.

    The other place that impressed was Charlotte Street Hotel. I haven’t stayed, just had breakfast, but gave a flavour of top food, service and ambience.

  2. Just revisiting your review old boy, and now very much looking forward to our stay here! 😎

    I’ve read about them charging £20 for Wifi, (which is plain outrageous in this day and age, plus with their prices), so the dongle will be packed!
