One Aldwych

You only have to push through the front door and enter the breathtaking Lobby Bar to know that you’re in for a treat. Despite the building’s weighty history – the 1907 structure was once the offices of the Morning Post – One Aldwych is a thoroughly modern establishment, with Frette linen, bathroom mini-TVs and an environmentally friendly loo- flushing system. Flowers and fruit are replenished daily, and a card with the next day’s weather forecast appears at turndown.

One of two on-site restaurants, Axis, serves modish British food with an emphasis on foraged ingredients. The location is perfect for the West End theatres and has become popular with attendees of London Fashion Week, particularly since many of the events are now held in nearby Somerset House. The three round corner suites are very romantic; a cosy screening room, excellent spa and a downstairs swimming pool with an underwater sound system playing soothing music may dissuade you from ever stepping outside.

I stayed here for my 21st and was extremely happy! the service was amazing and without compromise, nothing was done by half. the staff were friendly and helpful and even gave us a complimentary cake when they heard it was my birthday. Highly recommend, brilliant experience and a very lovely spa.

A great example of a hotel committing to responsible tourism best practice yet not compromising on quality in any way.
