A couple of months ago I created a blog post about the Westbury hotel in Dublin and it seemed to be liked (plus I enjoyed creating it) so I thought to do another hotel ‘review’ from when I went to London. The Marylebone hotel is part of the same chain of hotels, the Doyle collection, so both hotels are very similar… apologies if I do repeat myself on occasion but I will try not to.
The location of the hotel is amazing and about a 5 minute walk from Oxford street. For someone who loves shopping (like me) this is the ideal location as it is so central yet slightly away from the hustle and bustle…. Perfect for both the city vibe and also relaxing as well. There are various tube stations nearby but most attractions are within walking distance, I would certainly recommend the hotel even if just for the location.
Our room was absolutely gorgeous, and such a treat for me and my friend to stay in a lovely room for a few days! It was just the right size with everything we needed, and overlooked the centre of the hotel with pretty London style buildings as our view out of the window. We were on the 4th floor so it wasn’t too noisy from the road underneath, and you could barely hear the people in other rooms next door either which was good.
One of my favourite little memories of the trip is being greeted by one of the staff members on the last night, who delivered champagne and chocolates to our room whilst we were getting ready. The customer service is one of the things that certainly sets this hotel apart from others, the staff never fail to make you feel like a princess.
On the first night we went to the spa on the lower ground floor, and if you are staying at the hotel you can use the main facilities for free. These include the pool, sauna and steam room which I really enjoyed! I loved having the time to relax and chill out, next time we go back to the hotel I am certainly going to go back. Another thing that I really liked about the spa was the changing room area, because they had lovely cosmetics products that we could use (like cowshed hair products) and really good quality appliances (even GHD straighteners!). Unfortunately I couldn’t take any photos of the spa because I didn’t want my camera to get wet, and also for the privacy of other guests who were in swimwear etc.
Overall the hotel is absolutely amazing and such a special treat for a weekend away. All of the main areas of the hotel have such beautiful decor and design, which makes everything (including breakfast!) seem more special and lovely. I have been staying at the hotel for nearly 10 years now, and I will certainly be returning in the future because I love it so much.
My final note is a little shoutout to our wonderful waitress Villo (I hope that is how you spell her name!). She served us at breakfast every day and was such a lovely women, going above and beyond to help us and even give us recommendations of attractions to visit. She was such a little ray of sunshine for so early on a morning, and made me laugh each morning. ❤️
