A little luxury at Dukes Hotel Mayfair | London

Monday, February 29, 2016

It was a much needed weekend with one of my oldest and closest friends Victoria (IntheFrow). She decided that seeing as our life is currently 100 miles and hour, she would book us into the elegant Dukes Hotel in Mayfair for a weekend of luxury and shopping.



The hotel is set back in a little side street and perfectly depicts a luxury boutique hotel. Walking into the reception, the decor include rich woods and tapestries, as people relaxed in the large chairs and chatted to friends and colleagues. 

We were kindly given a mini tour around the hotel by the concierge - highlighting key areas such as the Thirty Six Restaurant (blog post coming soon) and the famous martini bar that Ian Fleming drank in whilst writing his James Bond stories.   


When arriving into our room we were greeted by the same classic, elegant decor. The suite had a lounge with doors that opened up onto a tiny balcony and on the table was a thank you note from the hotel and the best homemade meringue I have ever tasted! 


Walking through to the bedroom, there were two cute sausage dog teddys at the end of our double bed (I'm sure this why these were here, but it was cute regardless) and a large TV at the end of the bed. 


As if I wasn't impressed by the room already, our bathroom was also pretty amazing. With spot lights and grey marble throughout, complimentary REN products were placed on the double sinks. There were also fluffy white robes to use either after taking a swim in the huge bath or walk in shower.


The next morning, I woke up feeling refreshed and ready for a day of shopping. Opening the balcony doors to take in the sights and sounds below, we decided to treat ourselves to breakfast in bed. Yes, it was as good as it looks in this picture.

I'd like to say thank you to everyone at Dukes Hotel for being so kind and hospitable to us. We had a wonderful time.
