On a 1914 heritage building, Chancery Court hotel with its modern charm is making some people very happy. Listed among the 5 best business hotels in UK, it features 356 incredibly spacious rooms, a spa, undeniably dazzling restaurant and high-tech business facilities, it is close to all the main business centres in the capital – museums, shopping districts, galleries, Royal Opera house and theatres. It may be just a little over a decade old but Chancery Court has certainly made its mark.
Without any doubt, this hotel is a part of London’s magnificent history. Grand Staircase of the hotel is just a mere piece out of the picture of the legacy –with its Renaissance design, elliptical marble dome, it is as grand as it is dramatic. Whatever details went missing due to time, they were restored carefully so as to maintain the standard of the place. And if you are a lover of the English literature, it will come as a surprise to you that Charles Dickens penned Great Expectations and Oliver Twist here; many of the scenes in these novels were based on the location.
Even with 356 rooms including 13 suites, it is a relaxing place to be. The service, the staff and the ambiance is what makes it so easy for guests to come back again. Another special feature is the club level room which is actually a hotel inside a hotel – the guests who book this special room get concierge services, variety of canapés following throughout the day and the most amazing continental breakfast. Other than that, there is a Lounge in the hotel open for those who want a little more of the British experience, the afternoon tea with sandwiches and pastries. And now the two most extraordinary features of the hotel – Pearl Restaurant and the health care spa. If one satiates your tummy, the other soothes your soul. Pearl has actual pearls strung inside but that is not the good part, the French cuisine prepared by chef Jun Tanaka is. Chancery Spa is the winner of ‘Day Spa of the Year’ title by British Beauty Awards – it offers more than 40 treatments which start and in the relaxation room.
