We stayed a night at the Marylebone Hotel in central London and I really enjoyed it. The building was massive and so were our rooms, and the hotel is right in the centre of Marylebone, which is a really lovely part of London – easy to walk round, very central (it’s near Bond Street and Oxford Street) and with loads of shops and cafes nearby. It would be very good for tourists from overseas too.

 

The Marylebone Hotel takes interconnecting rooms to the next level by giving us two completely separate rooms with a small hall in the middle (you can see this on our video!). There was also a sliding wall that closed off the sleeping area for Jess and me. That meant there was no one to bother me and I could do what I wanted. We have never seen interconnecting rooms like this, and thought they were amazing.

We were trying out a special family stay which is set up for kids. This meant that I was given complimentary cookies, macaroons and milk to have as a midnight feast and I also got a range of awesome goodies that included a teddy bear and a portable four-in-a-row game (which mum and I played a number of times). Plus, I had the privilege of sleeping in a tepee which was super cool and really exciting.

We had a delicious dinner. I personally had about five drinks including two massive mocktails. The bread they gave us was delicious; I really enjoyed my fish and chips and the dessert (desserts) was superb. Nothing beats a good lemon tart, although I know mum was also very happy with her chocolate melting pudding and peanut butter ice-cream.

In my children’s package I was given a list of movies (although to be honest there wasn’t a very good choice of films and they should probably increase what’s on offer) I picked the Angry birds Movie which I then watched on the biggest TV I have ever seen – when I came into the room I thought it was just a big mirror! The film was good and even better after I started eating the biscuits.

The bathroom was great, there was a really nice shower and we were given those cool white robes. Plus, mum really liked all the toiletries (they were Aromatherapy Associates). Everyone was really nice and the staff were really quick to bring us anything we needed.

Breakfast was even better than dinner! There were muffins, croissants as well as eggs, cereal and loads more. I ate so much and drank a lot too, and everyone was really nice.

Overall I had a fantastic stay. I loved the rooms, the food and the complimentary gifts and it was so cool to sleep in a tepee. I would definitely recommend the children’s package to any child aged 12 or below and think that the whole family would have a great time here. I also know that mum and dad and Jess all had a great time too, thoroughly enjoyed the food and felt very relaxed afterwards. Dad even tried out the gym the next morning!

Mum and I also had a brilliant guided tour of Hamleys as part of the stay, and you can read about that here.

Disclosure: we were offered an overnight stay and breakfast at the Marylebone Hotel in order to review it. However, the hotel had no input into this blog post at all.

The luxury family package is meant for between 3-5 guests and costs from £750 a night.

  4. […] Sarah’s son Robert really enjoyed staying at the Marylebone Hotel, a five-star hotel which offers luxury family packages. Robert was particularly impressed by the tepee in his room and the great selection of cocktails on offer. You can read his review on his family’s blog FamilyTravel Times. […]

  16. I’ve never seen an interconnecting room quite like that! The milk and cookies are a nice treat. The food all looks great, that’s important when it comes to hotel foods, so often you want to eat there for convenience but it just isn’t good. This looks like it has everything!
