The Arch London

The first in a new series from the Editor: ‘Travels with a Toddler’

I arrived at the Arch London with my friend and baby boy. It ‘s certainly not easy travelling with a one-and-a-half year old but places like the Arch make life that bit calmer.

The hotel is family owned and run, easy to see from the friendly and efficient staff who offered service with a smile. No matter what my random request nothing felt like too much trouble and my little man was treated like one of the family.

The Arch London is in the perfect location for a pit stop in London, especially one with a toddler in tow, as everything you could possibly wish for is within walking distance; Selfridges, Bond Street and Hyde Park are all on the doorstep.

Set across seven Georgian Townhouses and two Mews homes, the Arch has a contemporary yet quintessentially British style, giving the feeling of being at a friend’s home, albeit a very luxurious one.

A perfect venue for meetings, launches, relaxing and enjoying a very British Afternoon tea.

The hotel is made up of individually designed rooms and suites with ultra comfortable beds and state of the art sound and television set-ups.

Our room also had a beautiful terrace on which to sit back and enjoy a Nespresso fresh from the machine inside.

The luxurious large bathrooms are very impressive with revitalising rain showers, set amongst the black granite, mirrored finishes and all natural Malin+Goetz products.

The hotel boasts complimentary Wi-Fi, which I consider to be a must in this day and age. 24-hour room service caters to your every need and the attentive yet discreet staff help create your ultimate hotel stay.

Hidden with The Arch is the fabulous Martini Library, a perfect venue for meetings, launches, relaxing and enjoying a very British Afternoon tea – with or without a Martini shaken to perfection and topped up at the touch of a button! There is a cocktail list and a fine selection of wines and champagnes catering to all tastes.

If it’s more than a liquid dinner that you’re after, Hunter 486 is the place for all day dining. The menu has been developed by Head Chef Gary Durrant, with Henrietta Green; food and hospitality consultant, award-winning food writer and broadcaster. Breakfast was a delicious feast that fuelled us well for a day’s shopping in Mayfair. Later in the day we enjoyed a private diner courtesy of the curtains that can be pulled around each table, a beautiful intimate touch.

Special Features

There is so much to love about The Arch; from it’s prime position to the cosy rooms and fabulous food, but it was the service that left both me and my little one grinning from ear to ear – and often in a city that’s hard to find!

Perfect for

Soaking up the shops, events and atmosphere of London town.

Celeb spot

You’re in the heart of Mayfair… too many to mention.
