My top : Great places to stay in the UK

Updated: Mar 17, 2021

As a travel blogger, I always get questions over on my Instagram where in London or the UK is coolest place to stay when you visit. London is a massive city with ample options for hotels and places to stay. But it is also easy to travel to if you stay just outside. I teamed up with a few to share my three favourite. My top three great places to stay in the UK with hopes to make your search just a little easier. The UK has a lot of hotel options with personality. You can find anything from Victorian and Edwardian days to very modern and hipster locations. In this post, I would love to somewhat cater to a frequent modern traveller that appreciates design , lux and quirkiness. After all, the UK is a place of vast diversity, and you can find any cultural influence here that you want. I picked the hotels that I frequently visit for their chic vibes. I have at some point stayed at all of the hotels below, and as somebody who lives most of the year in London, I have had an excellent opportunity to explore the hotel scene for quick weekends away. Call it perks of the job 🙂 or just sheer, I need me time. Every suggested hotel designed around a cool concept, and it offers a space for locals and travellers to come together. The bars and restaurants available at each establishment are cool hangout spots, and most of my friends including me visit for dinners, drinks and even dates. The food is good, cocktails even better and service on par. So if you are looking to experience the UK as a local then keep reading about my favourites.

I love The Brooklands Hotel! It indeed gives you a feeling of luxe the moment you step your foot inside its front door. From modern furnishings and luxurious amenities to the fabulous designer bathrooms, their stylish rooms and suites feature everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Furnished to the highest standard, each room includes a 6 foot king size bed ( yes every room) and a range of in-room entertainment services but the cocktail lounge and restaurant atmosphere is all the entertainment you need.

Not to mention the spa facilities and treatments. They have a lovely outdoor jacuzzi over looking the Mercedes Benz race course. and if you can afford an upgrade the best rooms in the house are the Panoramic Suites with Balcony and my favourite room 319. When it comes to food their restaurant is amazing. They have a wide range of dishes but I highly recommend the meats on offer. I have to say the best steak and mash potato I have ever had has been in two places, Restaurant 'Galvin's Window' in the Hilton Hyde Park on the 35th floor and Brooklands 1907 restaurant. Seriously if you don't stay at the hotel, its worth a trip up to Weybridge just to sample the cocktails and grab a bite to eat.

Brooklands also do deals so look out for them. There has been a couple of times where I went for a spa day and afternoon tea instead. warm scones with real clotted cream. I'm getting hungry just reminiscing.

During the day when you are not having a treatment you can walk over the yard to Mercedes world where you

can watch the Benz drifting, see the latest formula 1 car piece by piece in the Benz museum or get a driving experience of a

lifetime. Whilst driving fast is a hoot and so was the advanced driving and skills . My recommendation is by far the 4x4. Driving at a 90 degree angle, on two tyres, driving up and down stairs and through water as if on a safari was a great experience. The best... AND!!! an unforgettable experience and I have to admit Brookland's is a hotel I frequent. Trust me it's number one on my recommendation list.

Prices come with breakfast and start from

The Hoxton Shoreditch The Hoxton is based in my neighbourhood, Shoreditch. I have been east London based for over ten years and have been coming to the Hoxton for many years. The hotel offers over 200 room to suit any budget. The call them SHoebox (from £89), Cosy (from £129), Roomy ( from £159) and Concept rooms available at request. These beautifully designed rooms will make you feel inspired to decorate your own space in a chicer manner. The service is lovely here, and if you stay at the Hoxton Shoreditch, you will find the area and all the creatives that live here. The lobby is open to all and usually packed with people from the area that work remotely. There are a restaurant and bar which are great for dinner and drinks and even after so many years, The Hoxton Shoreditch it’s still one of my favourite spots to stop by!

I love Sanderson for its spacious, quirky design. Located on Berners Street, The hotel doesn’t look like much from the outside, but once you walk in, you will experience a bright, dynamic and creative design. Its white interiors featuring pops of colour make the hotel stand out from the rest.

Sanderson offers Standard, Superior, The Superior Double and Deluxe rooms accompanied with four suites. Suites include Loft Double Double and Loft suites, Loft Suite Terrace and the Penthouse. Depending on your budget, the choice is yours. The mixture between modern and baroque demonstrates deliberate luxury. You can except 300 thread count cotton linens gracing your bed.

Aside from extravagantly stylish toom, the open air inner Japanese Garden Courtyard is where you will want to spend your time. Accompanied by a Long Bar serving some of the most delicious cocktails London has to offer, you will feel like you have hit the spot.

Sanderson aside from being a chic hotel in London to base your stay at has a fantastic location. You will be able to explore most of the central London on foot, and should you fancy a bit of shopping, Oxford Street is just around the corner. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with Sanderson.

Room rates start at £280.

I love The London Edition! It indeed gives you a feeling of luxe the moment you step your foot outside its front door.

The London Edition located on Berners Street and not too far from the Sanderson, it offers rooms with an eco-friendly design with a touch of cosy. Not only are their rooms lush but the hotel provides one of the most popular restaurants in London, the Berners Tavern, merging past and future with its warm interiors. I couldn’t even tell you how many paintings are hanged in the restaurant, but they sure do make you feel like you’ve travelled to the past.

The London Edition has 173 guest room and will genuinely make your London experience unforgettable.
