Always interested in trying somewhere new, I was delighted to join friends for a reunion at the newly opened South Place Hotel. Centrally located, a stone's throw from Liverpool Street, this chic, modern hotel is also attractive & welcoming, with carefully chosen furnishings & artwork. The staff were unfailingly helpful & polite: nothing was too much trouble. We dined in the ground floor lobby - my Steak Tartare was perfectly seasoned along with crisp, crunchy frites - although there is a rooftop restaurant which will have to wait until my next visit! A great innovation is the first floor courtyard bar - outside space within the hotel.
The guest rooms are beautifully appointed, all in muted shades of contemporary colours with satisfyingly luxurious touches. The generously stocked mini-bar also had a vast & very tempting 'Goodies Drawer' with all imaginable snacks & chocolates. The bathroom complete with an oversized bathtub, rainforest shower & an excellent selection of products, was all the one could wish for. The touch pad lighting & room controls were functional & the James Bond style electronically operated 'Black Out Shutter' was very cool & allowed for an essential undisturbed Sunday morning lie in!
Back downstairs again, all was immaculate, despite the previous night's revelries & plenty of Sunday papers near at hand. The Bloody Mary's came with an individual 'Kilner Bottle' of perfectly judged tomato juice mix & delicious bar snacks.
All in all a very impressive operation, especially considering how new the hotel is - I'll definitely be back!
