We stay at the deluxe British hotel in our first visit to London post-lockdown.
OUR STAY AT THE CAVENDISH LONDON
Situated on prestigious Jermyn Street in the heart of Mayfair, home to London’s finest men’s tailors, food and wine merchants, restaurants, hotels and art galleries, this four-star hotel is certainly high-end and high quality.
Everyone looks for a home away from home whilst travelling and you need look no further than the comfort of The Cavendish London’s luxurious yet homely, beautifully decorated rooms. We were lucky enough to stay on its top floor, which boasts panoramic rooms of the capital city. The beds are as comfy as they are large, and the rooms are complete with interactive HD TVs and sound systems for your entertainment. There are desks for work, walk-in wardrobes for clothing, and tables and chairs to relax in and enjoy the views.
In the stunningly spacious bathroom, you can sink into the deep en-suite bathtub or enjoy an invigorating power shower. Jack and Jill twin sinks with picture perfect inbuilt lighting make getting ready for the day or night ahead easy and enjoyable.
We enjoyed a delicious dining experience at The Cavendish’s 2AA Rosette Petrichor Restaurant and upon arrival at our table, which overlooked the upmarket, world- renowned Fortnum & Mason, we were greeted with a bottle of the finest Champagne. We were hosted by Amanda, who we can only describe as charming and knowledgeable. And the food? Well, we can definitely see why it’s award-winning. We started with thinly sliced beef carpaccio coupled with a crispy and moreish ox cheek croquette – a recommendation of Amanda’s and we weren’t disappointed. Gooey melt-in- the-mouth burrata with roasted chilli and pepperonata also went down a treat. To follow, was creamy artichoke and saffron risotto topped with Berkswell cheese (rich but broken up by crunchy, fresh artichokes) and, of course, a sumptuous steak. A 300g sirloin to be exact, teamed with sautéed spinach, triple-cooked chips, caramelised shallots, creamed celeriac and parsley crisps.
This fine dining restaurant serves modern British cuisine using fresh, seasonal produce. Guests can also enjoy an after work or pre-dinner tipple in the cosy Petrichor Bar & Lounge, which has an extensive drinks list and stylish seating area.
A stay at The Cavendish London is ideal for business and leisure travellers alike; it is a stone’s throw from some of London’s most famous hotspots, including Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Regent Street, Oxford Street and the West End theatres, plus there are great transport links to other areas of London and its surrounding areas. Our delightful experience in the Petrichor Restaurant highlights exactly why it should be a must visit for food lovers everywhere.
