Around Christmas time and twice in February I stayed at two Grange Hotels one in Holborn called Grange Holborn Hotel. The other hotel was near Fenchurch street station called Grange City hotel. Grange hotels were doing a special offer and the Holborn hotel was booked using Secret Hotels. As the first visit was quite pleasurable this made us book the same hotel a second time.
The hotel is quite modern inside and the staff were friendly and happy to help with anything. Our room was a standard room and we had a view over looking Fenchurch Street station which wasn’t too bad. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean to high standards. The hotel also had a great range of facilities compared to other hotels in London. The hotel facilities and the breakfast in bed in the morning were the main reason we booked a second stay.
The third stay at the Grange Holborn hotel we used the spa facilities. I booked a file and polish manicure for the evening. The therapist was really nice and I sat in a room whilst there was relaxing music playing. The file and polish was £20 but it didn’t include clipping your nails. My nails were just filed a bit and then painted using OPI. Even though this was double the amount I’d normally pay I really enjoyed the atmosphere and being relaxed instead of in a nail salon.
Normally when I go away I head to the breakfast buffet in the morning but we thought this time we would have breakfast in our room. Continental breakfast came with the price of the room and to upgrade to a cooked breakfast was £8 each. For a cooked breakfast to be delivered to the room the tray charge was £4. Not having to leave your room for breakfast is great as then you can enjoy breakfast in your own time before having to pack and check out at 11am.
The Hoblorn Grange hotel also had a rooftop bar with outdoors and indoor seats. The views of London were nice and their are heaters too. It was a shame that the rooftop bar closed quite early.
With our first stay at the Grange City Hotel we also got 2 free Tower of London tickets included which was really good. We spent some of the day visiting Tower of London and seeing the Crown Jewels.
This is a great Hotel to stay in whilst in London due to the swimming pool and the breakfast in bed. We used the Swimming pool, Gym, Sauna and Steam room several times throughout the day. Due to staying during the week and on the weekend. The weekend was a lot busier than during the week when using the hotels facilities. For the three trips we booked two standard rooms and a club room that had a massive outdoor balcony. Whilst in London we went to the theatre to see Matilda the Musical. The show was really good even if Misses Trunchbull was quite scary. Visit https://www.grangehotels.com for more details regarding Grange Hotels.
