First thing to say, is that the Great Northern Hotel is in a great location particularly if you are travelling to or from King's Cross, as the hotel is right next to the station.
Despite it being in a very busy area, the hotel was very quiet and we enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep in the amazing bed. The beautiful egyptian cotton sheets were so nice - I wanted to take them home with me!
The room was well furnished and had everything we needed. Everything was so new, it was lovely having big, fluffy white towels that had never been used before. I also loved the fact that there is a pantry on every floor of the hotel with a proper coffee machine and little snacks and treats. A really novel idea that sets the hotel apart from the rest.
The bar is breathtaking and sells some amazing cocktails. All of the staff were very friendly and keen to help.
I would definitely recommend a visit to the hotel - even if it's just to sample a cocktail at the fabulous bar.
