Well it didn’t, I did a blog post and then the tweet*
The Cavendish Hotel, a 4* Hotel in the Heart of London, on the Doorstep of many a place to visit.
We arrived a little later than planned due to the weather at the time and train being late but not late enough for check in and do a little shopping as I thought. I must admit that because it was a review I was trying my hardest to find some negatives.
We arrived a smiling concierge helped with our Suitcase, we Checked in with ease, the receptionist was polite and efficient, explained about our afternoon tea and booked us in, explained breakfast times and gave us the keys, the Duty manager also came and welcomed us, they were all really nice to Little Man talking to him not at him.
We got up to the room, on the 3rd floor and little man was hopping with joy when he saw his bed, I was smiling at ours also, the room in a normal set up would be amazing, a separate Lounge area with all you need for a modern trip, Ipod speakers, facilities to connect your laptop, a large television, tea and coffee facilities and a Nespresso machine ( WOW!!! I do Love my coffee). Little mans Bed had Been made ready and waiting for him, it was a sofa bed, pulled out, he loved it and he promptly lay down, saying just a little rest’
The Bathroom was large, clean with everything you would need for a trip, the bath was large and A separate Large Shower cubicle, if you wanted fluffy slippers and a dressing gown, they supplied that also, just don’t take it home or they Charge and I don’t blame them, the dressing gown was embroidered and so fluffy and white it was worth buying if you had a spare £49!
At 3pm we went down to the restaurant and had afternoon tea (that’s another post), They had a ramp to allow little man to enter in wheelchair, not that he stayed in it as he does like to sit in a proper chair. We then went shopping at the amazing array of shops around the hotel.
We went out for Dinner across the City in the Snow to Visit Little Mans favorite chip shop in the East End, when we returned we decided to have a sit in the Lounge and have a coffee for me, hot Chocolate for Little Man and a small beer for Daddy, it was lovely to be able to relax, no-one looked or commented that a little boy was sat in there at 11pm, he enjoyed his hot Chocolate also, we then sneaked up to the 14th Floor to admire the view, and it was certainly worth it, my photos do it no justice at all. ( can I come back for New Years Eve Please, with permission to sit on roof).
After a wonderful nights sleep in the largest bed I have ever seen, even hubby’s snoring seemed distant ;), we awoke feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead, a quick shower for me and bath for the boys we made our way down for breakfast, it was a feast of continental, Full English and a varied selection of Healthy options. We all had the Full English and little man thought the yogurt was one of the nicest he has had and they came in a lovely little pot which I wanted to collect and bring home with me for the chance of being a prop in the future. ( I didn’t take it promise)
All in All it was a wonderful experience and we will be returning. I have always been in a mind set that hotels such as the Cavendish Hotel are for Child free breaks, we found the staff and Clientele were very friendly towards Little Man, he is not the average child and certainly not a quiet one, so the experience was wonderful and very child friendly.
*Minor Points. (not particularly to bad in comparison to the overall quality)
The springs were starting to come through the Sofa Bed mattress
I didn’t know which coffee was which for the Nespresso (They had pretty pictures on the box though)
Disclosure- We were given the Night’s accommodation, Afternoon tea and breakfast in return for a review
