Last Minute Weekend Breaks
The Grosvenor Hotel is one of the finest luxury four-star hotels in central London. The former Victoria station hotel, this is a Grade II listed building that has been carefully restored to its former glory. Now, entering the hotel through a grand lobby featuring marble floors, lofty ceilings and chandeliers is like stepping back into an era of opulence. For luxury city breaks, this is simply one of the best hotels in London.
Being part of Victoria Station (there is even a discrete entrance via the station concourse), the Grosvenor is well connected for travellers, whether coming in via the Gatwick Express or on the tube. A prime location close to Westminster, Belgravia and Kensington also means that some of the very best visitor attractions in London are within easy reach. Top of the list is Buckingham Palace, which is a few hundred metres from the hotel, while the Houses of Parliament, Hyde Park Corner and Downing Street are only a short walk away.
For anyone visiting the capital for shopping breaks, the Grosvenor is close to premier shopping destinations like Bond Street and Harrods, as well as the always-popular Oxford Street, Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus.
Within the hotel, the luxury finish and design is matched by excellent customer service and fabulous dining options – from the champagne and cocktail bar set in the former first class lounge, and the well-appointed Brasserie and Lounge, to the Grand Imperial Restaurant. The hotel’s classic period features help to create a timeless style, yet there are plenty of modern conveniences too – from the cutting-edge fitness facilities to the superfast Wi-Fi. With every luxury provided and every detail considered, the Grosvenor offers a truly outstanding standard of accommodationfor your visit to London.

The hotel’s main restaurant, the Grand Imperial Restaurant offers a fine dining experience, with an exquisite taste of first-class Hong Kong Cantonese cuisine. From the á la Carte to the express lunch menus and even an Asian-inspired afternoon tea, the delicate dim sum, excellent seafood and succulent barbeque will all change the way you think about oriental food.
The hotel’s Brasserie Restaurant offers a relaxed dining experience in a refined setting, with classic dishes, salads and sandwiches served throughout the afternoon and evening, while the Lounge provides elegant surroundings for the indulgent afternoon tea.
The Réunion Champagne & Cocktail Bar was once Victoria station’s first class lounge – and while it has been brought up to date with contemporary touches, the class remains.
