The Chelsea Harbour Hotel is part of Millennium Hotels and Resorts and is a new discovery for me. Nestled as you may guess – in the Chelsea Harbour – it is a beauty. The location is private, quiet and a little bit more Monacco than London. With yachts slowly moving from side to side in the harbour, the Thames running right behind the hotel and what brings you back to London is the stunning view of the London Eye, and the City in the distance.
The Penthouse suite
The suite is absolutely gorgeous, floor to ceiling windows opening up to a huge balcony overlooking the above mentioned view. I have not seen a more beautiful setting yet in London. The reason I say this is – hotels rarely have terraces in London, so although the view from the window may be stunning, there is always that little something missing by not being able to go out and admire it. The Chelsea Harbour Hotel offers that exactly missing piece – have a coffee or a cocktail on your terrace and admire the yachts, the Thames and the beautiful city views.
Back inside the decor has enough personality to make me love it and not overwhelm me. The suite is modern and yet there is a lot of character in the details around it, making it cosy and comfy. There is a walk in wardrobe, and a glam area. You get a TV in the bathtub, so 😉
The bed is amazing, comfy and huge. Also, I love the dome like window in the bedroom opening up to the terrace again, I thought it was a beautiful detail of making the room more interesting than just being a square.
One of the other unique features of the Chelsea Harbour hotel is the Spa. Beautiful area with a huge indoors pool, space for relaxation and amazing light coming through the windows all day long. If you fancy a treatment you can just head upstairs, where you will be greeted with herbal teas, dim light, comfy relaxation area and really skilled therapists. I had a 30 minute back massage and it was a very relaxing experience.
I do visit a lot of places but the service in the restaurant at the Chelsea Harbour hotel was amazing. The staff was super attentive, friendly and recommending food and drinks, making sure we had the best of time. I absolutely loved it and the food was so good. I have realised that I always order pannacotta desserts wherever I go. Apparently this is my favourite dessert, and if you are into it, definitely visit the restaurant for one. IT WAS DELICIOUS, really good, I wish I had a life long supply of it good.
Breakfast in the room was yet another amazing experience, as I could have it on the terrace and the weather was a treat. Sunny London, blue skies and 20+ degrees, see why I reference Monaco?
I can totally recommend the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, the overall experience was just superb.
