Our favourite rooms
The warm-hued Deluxe Junior Suites are sophisticated spaces with plenty of room to lounge around. For an extra-special stay, book the curved-walled River Suite, with its soothing blue tones and exceptions views of – you guessed it – the River Thames.
The heated indoor swimming pool on the four-storey spa’s thermal floor is an adults-only sanctuary outside the children’s hours of 10–11.30am and 3–4.30pm.
The hotel is home to the award-winning ESPA Life, an opulent, next-generation spa spread over four floors. There are no less than 17 treatment rooms (and one private spa suite), in which internationally-acclaimed masseurs, osteopaths, acupuncturists and herbalists work their magic. There’s also an amphitheatre sauna; steam room; ice fountain; a regular pool and a vitality pool with jets; marble heated loungers; private sleep pods and a Daniel Galvin hair salon. If you’re looking to get your heart rate up rather than down, head to the 24-hour gym, filled with top-of-the-line Technogym equipment and manned by a team of personal trainers.
Almost anything you need can be sourced on-site (the hotel has a Harrods outlet on the ground floor) or nearby… but make sure to bring your camera to capture all the world-famous local sights.
All public spaces are wheelchair accessible, and several guestrooms have been adapted for wheelchair users.
All ages are welcome; under-12s sleep in cots or extra beds in their parents’ rooms for free. Extra beds for over-12s are £75 a night.
