Park Plaza County Hall

Park Plaza County Hall is an enthusiastically – if somewhat haphazardly – run new-build. Each room has its own kitchenette with microwave and sink, and room sizes aren’t bad across the price range (the floor-to-ceiling windows help them feel bigger). There’s a handsomely vertiginous atrium, enabling you to peer down into the central restaurant from the frustratingly infrequent glass lifts, and the ground-floor bar is buzzy with business types after work. The gargantuan Park Plaza Westminster Bridge (200 Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7UT) has now opened nearby, at the southern end of Westminster Bridge. It’s London’s largest new-build hotel for four decades.

Fabulous location with a great view of Big Ben if you get a room on the right side of the building. The room had a microwave and big fridge, which we didn't use but would be very useful for a stay of more than one night. Blackout curtains, sound-proofed windows and a comfy bed mean a good night's sleep is guaranteed. 

TIP: If you are coming by car, there's a car park right around the corner to the hotel (not run by the hotel) where you can leave your car for £20 a day, which in central London is a bargain. We could even see our car from the side window of the room. Very convenient.

Park Plaza County Hall is a superb hotel. Having stayed in it a number of times the service is consistently high. Standards are excellent in terms of rooms and all the amenities you can expect. Rooms are big, there is a selection of course of sizes and packages including breakfast etc. Rooms facing over the river Thames are spectacular including Houses of Parliament and surrounding area. Gym and pool are great. The bar is pretty good if your looking for an early drink pre going out or a night cap. Highly recommended. 


I've stayed in this hotel a few times now and I think it might be one of the nicest hotels within the affordable price range in London (and by affordable I mean under £150 a night, 5*)

The rooms are nice and big, as are the beds which are really comfortable.

The best thing about this hotel is the black out curtains - I kid you not, it's pitch black in your room at all hours of the day when you have the curtains closed (which makes hangovers all the more enjoyable)

The atrium in the centre of the hotel is quite something. Most of the hotel rooms look into the atrium (and also into other people's rooms which is creepy and at times utterly hilarious - how people forget others can see in is beyond me!) There is a quite stunning view of the Houses of Parliament from the lift lobby and the location makes it ideal for anyone wanting easy access to the tourist hot spots of the city, as well as the buzzing south bank and Waterloo station.

The gym which is free to use for guests is well equipped, and the pool area is nice. Pick a time to go when kids aren't allowed in for a more enjoyable swim.
