Britmum Live: We stayed at the stunning Grange Hotel St. Paul's

I was lucky enough to go to Britmums Live 2013 with my good friend Filipa Kay aka BiB Finalist Gourmet Mum. We decided that we would stay in London instead of commuting each day. We stayed at the Grange Hotel  St. Paul's which is a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes taxi ride to the The Brewery (venue of Britmums Live)

Stunning outside view
The Grange Hotel St. Paul's is a short walk from Mansion House Tube station (well it would have been a short walk had we not walked in the wrong direction as soon as we left the underground! duh!) but once we realised our silly mistake it was very easy to find, a short 6 minutes walk.

When we arrived I was stunned by the hotel. It was contemporary, modern, open planned with a great view of St Paul's Cathedral . All the staff on our arrival were pleasant and helpful offering to carry our luggage. I was actually disappointed that we couldn't spend any time using their fantastic facilities (particularly the indoor pool) before rushing out to Britmums Live.

Swimming Pool and Sky Bar
We returned quite late and had already eaten out but decided to have a drink at the bar which was busy and had a  lively and friendly atmosphere.

We shared a Twin Superior Room which was in keeping with the rest of the hotel so no nasty surprises, cosy brown and golden tones, very clean and spacious, more than enough room for two girls with full overloaded suitcases to get ready in. There was a private bathroom, which was again very clean and modern and a hotel that gives good quality complimentary toiletries and fluffy bathrobes always get an extra thumbs up from me!

After a bit of jumping on the bed (errr as you do!) I had a fantastic nights sleep in the spacious firm (but not too firm) double bed with light duvet. The curtains were good quality and heavy so no outside light shone in.


Bed bouncing so should be an Olympic Sport!

We checked out pretty early in time for the conference but not before we enjoyed a full English breakfast which was lush! Great quality food served as a buffet, the Cumberland sausages were especially yummy, I went in for seconds!


There was also Continental breakfast offering cereal, fruit, pastries and freshly baked bread.

Check out was quick and easy. Feeling slightly fragile from the few drinks the night before we opted to jump into a taxi which was waiting right outside for us.

I really enjoyed my stay at The Grange Hotel St .Paul's and would definitely stay again.
