Having young children we never managed to really celebrate our 1st & 2nd Wedding anniversary so I decided to take my wife to London for the weekend.
After Trawling through reviews and every website possible I kept coming back to Threadneedles as the hotel I wanted to stay out with it been 5* and at a weekend at a 4* price! I booked through lastminutes top secret hotels, which was not really that top secret as the description and location gave it away really, so got a really good price!
I was a bit concerned about the quietness of the location at weekends,which it really was so quiet, but don't let that put you off as Bank tube station is 2 minutes at the top of the road and is a great station linked too four separate underground lines so can get around quickly and easily!!
We arrived in London at 9am and wanted to see all the sites and not cart our bags about all day so decided to make our way to the hotel and see if we could drop them off their. Upon arriving in reception it has a lovely warm feel and the reception staff very welcoming. Although it was 9.30am we were promptly checked in and told our room wasn't available, which we never expected it too and the bags put in to storage until we returned later.
This is where Threadneedles really made the whole weekend special!!! We collected our key from reception and told we were in room 503. Upon entering the lift another guest was in there who were going to the second floor and tried entering the 5th floor and the lift wouldn't go, so I tried my room key and it worked straight away. It was only later I realised the 5th floor has restricted access to guests staying on that floor and is where the penthouse is.
We entered the room to be greeted by a card wishing us a happy 3rd wedding anniversary which was a nice touch. The room was very nice and the bathroom lovely and felt 5*!! We then opened the doors to realise we had a private roof top terrace with table and chairs so enjoyed a few drinks before going out for a meal.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bit of luxury at a fair price and I will not hesitate to stay hear again if I ever stay in London again :-)
