Haymarket Hotel, London

I think I'm coming to the end of telling you all about my trip to London. In the evening of the day I arrived (!) Libby decided to drag a somewhat jetlagged moi to have a cocktail (or was it two!) at the Haymarket Hotel - slap bang in the middle of Piccadilly. I was so pleased she did too! The decor was stunning.

Here's the Brumus Bar where we sat - the wallpaper is also on the ceiling too (which is great because I loathe those sprinklers and vents on show):

The Brumus restaurant:

Tim and Kit Kemp's company The Firmdale Group has no less than 6 hotels in London and they have just opened one in New York (another favourite city of mine!).

This is the reception area:

The pool and spa:

Private meeting/function room:

Afternoon tea (oh so English):

And finally, a selection of their rooms - all designed by Kit. I like that she's not afraid of colour and love how she upholsters the chairs with two fabrics:

By the way, I had a watermelon cocktail ;o)
For more details check out their website:
