Base yourself in the heart of London at this stylish boutique hotel in the centre of the West End. This four star Secret Hotel has all the facilities and services to make your stay as stress free and memorable as possible. With 24 hour reception, concierge and a night porter, the staff here will be more than happy to help with car rental, theatre reservations, tours, valet laundry and currency exchange. For those working away, this hotel is fully equipped with a business centre and meeting rooms and there’s a gym onsite too.

With all major attractions just a stone’s throw away, the only difficulty will be in deciding which one to do first! Art lovers will be pleased to know that the National Gallery, the National portrait Gallery and the Courtauld Gallery are all just minutes away. If you’re travelling with children, the National Gallery often has hands on workshops available whilst the Portrait Gallery includes famous faces from past and present that they are sure to recognise. Iconic Oxford Street is close by and a must visit even if just to soak in the atmosphere, although most won’t be able to resist the lure of the major brands. Whether you’re after luxury shopping on neighbouring Bond Street or to pick up some bargains from high street favourites such as Primark, it will be difficult to go home empty handed! Why not refuel with some rather civilised traditional afternoon tea at the Strand Palace Hotel. Select your favourite tea served with fruity scones and condiments and finger sandwiches. If you’re celebrating why not opt for a glass of champagne.
Covent Garden is a hub of delicious restaurants, theatres and more great shopping. If you can prise yourself away from the majestic street performers then Indian cafe Dishoom is a must. With chic interior and East meets West cusine all for an affordable price, this cool cafe is a must for romance or family gatherings. Enjoy a bacon nan roll at breakfast, Indian style cheese on toast for lunch or a traditional chicken tikka for dinner; there’s something here for everyone. For nightlife, why not catch one of the award winning shows such as Shrek or The Lion King, or if musicals aren’t your thing there’s a whole host of great cocktail bars to drink and dance the night away.
