I’ve heard people say that they often find hotels not like the luxurious home-away-from-home that they might want, but I don’t think that could ever be said of The Langham, especially if you have access to The Club.
The Club is an incredible, unique space that’s set across two floors and covers everything from business amenities to a space to relax with a glass of house, Laurent Perrier, champagne. Whether we wanted to sit in front of the fire and relax or nip in to try some of the amazing afternoon tea, I thought that The Club was possibly one of the most exciting things about our staycation.
Part of The Club is the Butler’s Pantry, an area that’s stocked with food at all points of the day. From 3-5pm there’s the option to try some of Cherish Finden’s incredible afternoon tea.
I’m so glad we saved room after lunch for this because it was a real treat!
Though I loved the sandwiches, for me afternoon tea is all about the sweet treats, and I was so pleased to see a wonderful array of options.
We were more than happy to enjoy our tea and toast our anniversary with glasses of champagne before we headed back to our room to get ready for dinner.
As with everything in The Club, no matter what you would like, someone has probably already thought of it.
After an incredible night’s sleep, we had arranged for our breakfast to be served in our room at the very indulgent time of 9am! The server brought our breakfast table in and served us with a smile as he unfolded the paper and asked us how our evening had been.
I must admit we did go a little overboard with breakfast (but I knew Andy was going to be hungry for second breakfast after a swim!) but I have to say, we finished most of it!
I loved the still-warm buttermilk pancakes, served with fresh fruit and maple syrup.
English muffins served with Michel Roux’s jams and either salted or unsalted butter, depending on your preference.
I think this was a little torturous for Andy who was very hungry and just ready to dive into this glorious breakfast!
Andy had opted for the full English breakfast, served with two kinds of bacon and eggs of your choice. Based on the total silence at the other end of the table I think it was pretty great!
Orange juice, fresh breads and croissants, cereal and tea and coffee all ready to fuel us for the day.
After a hearty breakfast in bed, we decided to work off (kind of!) some of our indulgence in Chuan Spa, the hotel’s fitness and wellness centre. Since I had rather conveniently forgotten to pack my trainers, we went for a refreshing swim in the beautiful 16-metre long pool.
There’s enough space for you to recline, relax and bubble away anything that’s been bothering you. It’s without a doubt one of the most relaxing spots I’ve found in London.
After a long soak in the jacuzzi, I was more than happy to spend a while in the salt sauna, which is not only relaxing but has great health benefits as well.
What makes The Langham so special for me is that every little touch has been taken care of, even down to providing tea, coffee, water and fruit for spa guests. There’s quite honestly nothing that you could want for in this hotel that someone hasn’t already thought to provide you with.
Our stay was complimentary, but all opinions and love for The Langham are my own.
