Reunite with Family in London Hotels with Bespoke Hotels

Is it time for your family to reunite and spend some time together? With the bustling, frenetic nature of modern life, family gathering can often be tricky things to organise, especially when the family is spread all over the place. One way to reunite is to plan a family reunion in a central location that offers convenience and plenty to see and do. London is the ideal city in which to plan a family reunion, as its central location is easy to access and provides plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy. Bespoke has some great London hotels within our group that cater for families and help guests get the most out of their trip. And with the summer season in full flow, and events such as Wimbledon and the Ashes coinciding with schools’ summer holidays, it couldn’t be a better time for a trip to the capital.

Look for Family Hotels that Cater for Children

There are always lots of children around when families reunite. Cousins, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren that may not get the opportunity to meet regularly will all be excited and ready to enjoy themselves. In this regard, it’s important to research the local area and find a place that offers appropriate services for children. Thankfully all of our Bespoke London hotels offer some great local knowledge which will help to meet the needs of the younger guests at the hotel.

Amenities that make travelling with children easier, such as board games, cards, DVDs, books, and music, are available to borrow from most Bespoke hotels. Some hotels will offer these amenities right there in your room, while others will have a system set up whereby you can call down and have the items delivered to your door. Depending on the Bespoke hotel you choose, you may even be able to rent video game systems, which are helpful if you have a rainy day or simply wish to lounge around.

Hotel Features that Make Travelling Easier for Mum and Dad

With all this talk of keeping the kids happy, it’s important not to forget that the London hotels you research should also understand the importance of making travelling easy for mum and dad. Offering features like connecting rooms so families can easily communicate with each other and travel back and forth, baby bed and cots, are all vital when staying together. While a hotel may not provide every amenity you want, most family friendly London hotels go above and beyond trying to keep guests happy, and will be more than happy to satisfy you as best they can. Consider booking a few rooms at a family friendly property in one of our London Bespoke Hotels the next time you want to reunite with distant relatives.

Boutique Hotels Offer Travellers Understated Luxury

Travellers who want to experience an elegant getaway away from the beaten track, without having to rely on the larger well-known hotels, should look for destination boutique hotels. These have become known as the antithesis of the large chain hotels that all seem to offer the same expected amenities and similar room setups. The attraction of a boutique hotel is that it allows you to experience a destination in a unique setting.

Some hotels can appear very basic and nondescript from the outside, only for the interior to wow you with its luxurious and elegant appearance. Take the Grosvenor Hotel in Shaftesbury, for example. It offers its own restaurant with a centrepiece pizza and bread oven, as well as a bar. Others, depending on the speciality services of the hotel, offer music, dancing, spa services, or peaceful landscaping that inspires you to kick back and escape it all.

What Makes Boutique Hotels Unique?

Every hotel is different, and when it comes to finding the best room for your travels the combination of luxury and quirkiness make boutique locations different from all other hotel experiences. The Grosvenor is located in the hustle and bustle of the historic market town of Shaftesbury. The frontage is steeped in this historic tradition, but once inside you’re transported to a chic world of fun and relaxation.

Other boutique properties are set apart from the business of the city and located in a more serene environment. These luxurious hotels offer picturesque surroundings of gardens and rolling hills, whilst simultaneously providing excellent, personal service unlike that which you experience in a large chain. These hotels may be venerable old homes that have been refurbished into hotels, but the staff strive to transport you to another era during your stay.

Enjoy the Same Amenities with Extra Perks

Boutique hotels
often offer similar amenities to larger chain hotels. Your hotel may have a pool, gym, and complimentary coffee and tea in your room. The perks of staying at these hotels are the settings and the personal service that’s often not in place when staying at larger hotels. The surroundings of most of these luxurious hotels also make them special. Country hotels are often set on acreage that’s landscaped with mature trees and flowers, sculpted to meld with a traditional ascetic that’s nigh on inimitable.

At the Grosvenor you’ll be able to take advantage of a boutique hotel in a historic, beautiful town. But if you want something even more serene, there are plenty of these hotels set amongst the lush countryside as well.
