St. Erminís Hotel in London is a lovely hotel in a lovely location. Itís a couple of minutes from St Jamesís Park tube. Ideal if you want somewhere nice to stay while exploring the city.

Unusually for a London hotel, St. Erminís has its own driveway, framed either side by the red brick building and culminating in a grand entrance with good lighting and a warm, welcome feel.

The building is traditional London, with red brick construction, stone decoration and square windows. Everything you see, from the topiary along the drive, to the uniforms of the doormen is pristine. A lot of time and effort obviously goes into keeping everything in good condition.

That is echoed inside, as once the door is opened for you, you are presented with a grand lobby with a large white staircase, huge ceilings and lots of traditional decorative touches. It oozes elegance and class and we felt right at home.

We were checked in quickly by a friendly receptionist and escorted to our room.

We had a Deluxe King Suite, which had a good-sized bedroom, living area and two bathrooms. The dťcor reflected the rest of the hotel, with traditional features and elements of modernity provided by some of the furniture.

The bedroom was a good size, with heavy curtains, large canopied bed and good quality furniture. The windows let in plenty of light, which was adequately blocked at night by those heavy curtains. The bed was supremely comfortable and gave us a great nightsí sleep.

ďSt. Erminís Hotel in London is a high class hotel with superior standards.Ē

The seating area had a sofa, armchair, coffee table, large LCD TV, a BOSE music system and the usual accoutrements. It was comfortable and a nice place to relax while waiting around. The only downside was that you have to pay for internet access. Free Wi-Fi is available in the public areas, but curiously not in the rooms.

Both marble bathrooms were generously proportioned, with separate baths and showers. The baths were roll-tops, and the showers were walk-in rainfall types. Both were in great condition and were utterly clean, as was the rest of the bathroom. There were also White Company products too.

The entire suite is of a very high quality and in great condition. We saw no evidence of wear and tear anywhere, which is unusual in established hotels. The decoration and quality of furnishing does the hotel credit.

The rest of the public areas were similarly outfitted. The traditional Georgian accents were in every room sitting comfortably alongside modern furniture, thick soft furnishings and a modern/traditional colour scheme.

There are architraves, patterned ceilings, grand chandeliers and ceiling lighting, large fireplaces and rich wood decoration throughout. They all add an element of grandeur that sits comfortably within the rooms rather than overwhelms them.

The lounges and bar were great places to spend time sitting, drinking a coffee and catching up with the newspapers. We found them very relaxing indeed.

St. Erminís has The Caxton Grill as a restaurant, that serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and cocktails. It serves a range of European dishes that are prepared to a high standard. The Caxton Bar is next door and is a more relaxed affair, with more modern decoration. Both seemed of a very high quality and quite busy, which is always a good sign.

St. Erminís Hotel in London is a high class hotel with superior standards. We experienced excellent service throughout our stay and wanted for nothing. The accommodation was excellent and we would happily return here again.
