Last week, I ventured in to Central London for a one-night stay at the Thistle Hotel in Barbican. I invited Joanna along with me for a little girls night in session and it was so lovely just to chill, relax and have a pamper evening over loads of snacks and trashy TV. The hotel is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of the main street and easily accessible from both Barbican and Old Street underground station. The reception area is very clean and modern looking with super friendly staff at the desks. The room itself is quite large, yet cosy with a comfy bed, bathroom with a tub and nice little table for those who need an area for work. The hotel also has a pool and spa area which I didn't get to try out, but it looks amazing when I pop in to check it out.
In the morning, we popped down to the dining area for breakfast before we both headed off to work and loved the selection of food they had on offer. Everything was freshly made and ordered in, we both pretty much rolled ourselves out of the hotel due to be too full. Overall, I had a lovely stay at the Thistle and would stay again in the near future.
Just a quick note to add, Thistle Hotels are currently still running their winter sale offer and the Barbican branch in particular have teamed up with energy expert, Oliver Gray to share some tips on how to get the best out of a girlie break. Here they are:
