Located on the South Bank, Bankside has 161 bedrooms, hand-picked furnishings and specially commissioned artworks, not to mention meeting spaces, a fitness centre and a pet-friendly policy – it really is a fabulous choice. Every room features a striking piece of art above the bed and benefits from a sitting area, marble bathroom, remote controlled blackout blinds, mini-fridge and desk. Fancy something really special? Why not go all out and book a suite and enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows and a view of St Paul's?

Walk out of the hotel and in just 15 minutes you'll reach Borough Market, a haven for foodies; even closer are Shakespeare’s Globe, the National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall and the South Bank Centre. Heading north of the river? A brief stroll leads to Blackfriars Bridge – cross the water and head westwards towards shopping areas such as Regent's Street and Mayfair, or head east and hit the financial district with its impressive skyscrapers and innumerable bars and restaurants. Back at the hotel, why not grab a bite to eat at Art Yard Bar & Kitchen, a casual eatery with a menu dishing up plates such as pizzette topped with woodland mushrooms and truffle, pan-fried cod served with monk’s beard and pickled walnut and pecan pie with pumpkin ice-cream.



Open all year.


Rooms for two people start at £350 per night
