LaLliT London is one of the first ventures in the UK from the renowned Indian hotel brand, and we were very excited to be visiting. As the former St. Olave’s Grammar School, the façade of this hotel is rather grand. We arrived by car on their forecourt where our doors were opened and our luggage was taken from us as we were escorted through to reception. The lobby boasts beautiful interiors combining a perfect marriage of both Indian culture and quintessential British charm.

After a swift check-in we were then shown to our aptly named Junior Classroom, where the charming interiors continued with a strong Indian influence. The bedroom area was fairly spacious and included a small desk area for anyone looking to catch up on some work, as well as a comfortable queen size bed with a bespoke bedhead, lined with plush fabrics covered with intriguing embroidery work; giving a gentle nod to its Indian heritage. There was also an espresso machine which was most welcome.

The bathroom wasn’t overly spacious, but was well designed and included a polished black marble wash basin surround along with a walk-in shower which was wonderfully powerful. I did, however, miss having a bath in the morning. That being said, the robes and towels were crisp white and beautifully fluffy.

“The LaLiT London is truly unique and is certainly a fine addition to London.”

For anyone looking to relax and be pampered, inside the hotel itself you will find their Rejuve Spa which offers a holistic experience combining Eastern and Western therapies, along with a good sized gym.

There are a number of bars and restaurants located within the hotel with Indian cuisine being their main focus. Baluchi is their main restaurant offering a contemporary take on classic Indian dishes, and if you’re looking to begin your evening with a cocktail or two then you should allow time to visit the Teacher’s Room or the Headmaster’s Room. Their second restaurant is called The Terrace, and the hotel also boasts a bread bar called The Naanary, as well as a tea lounge called The Gallery. The décor is truly remarkable throughout, paying homage to its former school days.

We were very impressed with our stay at this hotel and would certainly recommend it. With the exception of having no bathtub, we were left wanting for nothing and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful. The LaLiT London is truly unique and is certainly a fine addition to London.
