I have always been transfixed by London’s culture and life so I was honoured to be invited to stay at The Royal Horseguards Hotel along Embankment this month. As a visibly stunning and gothic style building, the hotel was originally built as luxury apartments in 1884 and was given Grade 1 listing status due to the architecture modelled on a French chateau.
The hotel itself is utterly stunning in all its entirety and with a plush past and gorgeous interior, it was wonderful to stay in this historic hotel that any London dweller or tourist would love too.
With Gary in hand, we headed up to London to stay at the hotel for a fabulous sunny Friday. With plans for drinks and a dinner date, we were ready to have some quality time together and a lush time on the town.
As soon as we arrived at the hotel, the staff(and weather) were warm and welcoming from the off. After a very smooth check in, we were shown to our room and we were really amazed at how stunning the Tower suite was where we were going to stay.
With two floors, our bedroom and bathroom were on the ‘Ground’ floor while our amazing lounge was a level above. With a panoramic view of the London eye, the Thames and even Charing Cross station, the lounge in our suite was beautiful and you could easily stare at the scenery we had all day.
After we got over the breathtaking view, we had a scout of the bedroom and bathroom and both were really stylish and inviting also. I loved the window features in the bedroom and the TV in the bathroom just oozed luxury and made me what to have a bath instantly.
After we unpacked and pulled ourselves away from our lovely suite, we headed out into the sunshine for a romantic walk around.
I couldn’t wait to show off this look I am wearing here and Gary was kind enough to shoot it for me outside the hotel.
After spotting Shaun the sheep and a quick trip to New Look, We decided to head back and get ready for our night out.
I was uber excited as we had drinks planned for the evening in Cahoots and a great dinner at Bills in Covent Garden. I was also really keen to show off this outfit I had planned and to carry this dreamy ‘Yes’ bag from Anya Hindmarch.
I must say Gary looked pretty dashing too in some of this new clobber for our night out.
Once we got back from out night out, we headed to the hotel’s bar. It was a great opportunity to get some more pictures of this lovely hotel and I adored how chic and stylish the place looked at nighttime.
After some antics at the bar, I couldn’t wait to get in bed that night as big king size island in our room looked so inviting! Me and Gary like to stretch out trying the night too so a big bed is a must and it was so comfortable and the sheets felt lovely and fresh. Apart from Gary snoring occasionally, I had a lovely nights sleep. The Bed was really cozy and I really didn’t want to get out of it when Morning came.
With Breakfast calling, our tummies were ready for a cooked meal and the staff served us a tasty hot cup of tea and there was plenty of grub for us to refuel on. With lots of options including cereal, a full english and tasty bakery pieces, there was tons to pick from at breakfast time and it all smelt and looked delicious.
After we packed our weekend bags and heading down to reception, I couldn’t resist taking some more snaps and showing you just how glamorous this hotel really is. With a clean & chic restaurant waiting for lunch go-ers and a lovely tea room with floral cockery, The Royal Horseguards is a exquisite and welcoming place that anyone would love to go to. Whether you want tea and cake or are in need of somewhere special to stay overnight, this hotel is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and really embraces it’s historic past and it’s amazing setting. Both me and Gary really enjoyed our time at the hotel and even though it was just a few weeks ago, we can’t wait to return ASAP!
