London’s calling this Easter

18th April 2011 Print

Winter has felt endless this year and we are looking forward to the long Easter weekend more than ever - and the extra bank holiday that follows thanks to the Royal Wedding. 

It’s the perfect time to take a break, and with a special offer at The Royal Park and The Cranley Hotels, a luxurious stay in London this Easter won’t break the bank.

Guests can enjoy a sophisticated stay at a choice of two elegant boutique hotels: The Royal Park, on the edge of London’s Hyde Park, or The Cranley, in the Royal Borough Of Kensington and Chelsea. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the capital’s sights, shows and shopping, then, retreat to the luxury of a boutique hotel - without a luxury price tag.

The Royal Park is an exclusive hotel on Westbourne Terrace, and very near London’s largest park, Hyde Park. The Royal Park Hotel is three 19th Century Grade II listed townhouses. Kensington Palace, the Albert Hall and Portobello Road’s shops and famous market are all on the doorstep of this haven of elegance, with Oxford Street and Marble Arch also within easy reach.

If the V&A and then Harvey Nicholls are on the agenda, then it would have to be The Cranley. Three 1869 townhouses form this charming Victorian hotel, within easy walking distance of London’s most famous museums and exclusive shops. Each of these historical hotels is beautifully restored, and filled with antique furniture, period features and original oil paintings. 

If guests can’t quite decide how to spend their time in London, then the concierge can plan a perfect day for them – book theatre tickets or reserve a table at one of London’s best restaurants – while they take traditional English Afternoon Tea on the terrace.

Private dining for two can be arranged, for a romantic evening after a busy day’s shopping and sightseeing.

For Easter week this year (18th April-25th April), guests can take advantage of the Special Easter Rate of £179 for a classic double room at The Royal Park Hotel or a superior double at The Cranley Hotel. Special Easter Family rates are also available.

This luxurious stay includes continental breakfast served in the guest’s room, a welcome drink and a glass of champagne each evening of their stay.  The classic design of both hotels is combined with modern facilities, including complimentary high speed internet access and a DVD player on request.  The elegant, air-conditioned rooms are all individually designed, with antique detailing, handmade beds, Irish bed linen and marble or limestone bathrooms, with robes, slippers and Penhaligon toiletries.

A stay at The Royal Park or The Cranley Hotel is a truly elegant experience, so, take advantage of this Easter offer and escape to London for the long Easter weekend.
