Great John Street Hotel
Time Out says
Red-brick boutique hotel offering afternoon teas with a twist
This red-brick boutique hotel was once a school, but now it holds a richly decorated set of bedrooms and suites, two bars (one of them rooftop) and some interesting event spaces. The afternoon teas are worth noting: there's one for children, and another for 'gents', which includes a Scotch egg and a mini burger. Handy for the Spinningfields area, and close to the Opera House.
