I can't believe how overdue these photos actually are but since I'm in London anyway, I thought I might as well share one of my favourite experiences during my trip here last September. I had the opportunity to visit the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel welcomed with a little private tour...and loved it so much, got myself a weekend booked there. But really though, I feel like this is one of the most underrated hotels in London. I found out about it through a mutual friend on Instagram and got my head blown off when I saw the amazing grand stairway. Then suddenly it seemed like everyone I knew was talking about it. The beautiful Gilbert Scott restaurant..and the Booking Room. Every little attention to detail is so meticulous and I found myself constantly overwhelmed by the history and grandeur of the hotel. And yet, the interior and friendly staff is still welcoming and I slowly couldn't help but feel so at home here. There is something still so romantic being able to peep through some of the windows and see people in transit at the station.

I experienced a hearty Sunday roast at Marcus Wareing's The Gilbert Scott and it was all fancy dining  but if anything I do need to add- so, value for money. And while dinner gets pretty pricey, you're paying for the full package here. Everything is top-notch. Either way, swing by for a drink at the bar or the Booking Room. Forget the diet and feel like royalty at every inch of the hotel. Fluffiest of beds and pillows I still think about till this day and being able to walk off afternoon tea by Regent's Canal which is just around the corner. Have no reservations about the St Pancras and just do it. I promise one of the best stay cations you could have all in the heart of London. I'm actually still pinching myself.
