Over the weekend I stayed at the incredible Park Plaza Westminster bridge hotel and felt compelled to leave a review.
I know a lot of my readers come from overseas and I absolutely think this is THE hotel if you are coming for a London visit, long or short.
Location-wise, it's hands down the most most central you can find with the msot stunning views of all the land marks. Placed in front of the London Eye and Big Ben, you truly see and feel the magic of London with these iconic views stretched in front of you. Also, it means you can just walk to these sites, or even walk to Oxford Street too for shopping. It is also just a 4 minute walk from the Westminster tube station or Padington.

On to the hotel itself: I thought the restaruant and the bar on the first floor were really exceptional. They are fabulous if you don't have time to leave the hotel as they boast the same famous views, as well as having a great glamorous feel to the bar (which is entry only on proof that you are staying at the hotel making it all the more exclusive.) With a great cocktail list, or even just for a coffee in the morning I can't recommend enough.
The restaurant Brasserie Joel was also excellent - a great selection of French cuisine to suit most tastes and fabulous for a steak. We were a party of 12 and they had no problems with serving us all an excellent meal together which other restaurants would struggle with. I can't remember the name of the red wine we had, but it was exceptional too and made the meal. All in all, for a restaurant within a hotel it was very good as I do not normally except a great quality from a restaurant based within a hotel!
Sorry for the stock photo of the rooms - I was too busy taking pictures of my views of London to remember the room!" The bed was super soft, extra large and one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in . With a modern bathroom, small living room and huge windows with iconic views, it really is the best place to stay. I have stayed in so many London hotels but this is now top of my list and will be returned too for sure.
If you have the chance make sure to pay the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel a visit
Lot of Love xx
