Best Hotels in the UK

23 Mar 2020

Great Britain is the birthplace of castles, leprechauns and, of course, a real Queen. Although the area of the country is small, each part of it is strikingly different from the others, both in its traditions and customs and in its landscapes. For example, Northern Ireland is a land of heaths and fairy tales. Wales is known for its ancient castles. Scotland deserves special appreciation for its kilts, bagpipes, strong whiskey, and the Loch Ness monster. In England, every piece of land is associated with the monarchy and its formation: Buckingham Palace, Nottingham, and York — the “elder brother” of American New York.

1.  London

London is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is multi-faced and diverse. Some will come here with the beautiful companion from rougeboulevard to visit the famous Baker Street and look at the house of Sherlock Holmes, others to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace or to wander around the museums. The most expensive hotels, of course, are located in the historical centre.

London Marriott Hotel County Hall 5*

This luxury hotel located on the banks of the London landmark — the River Thames. This old building used to hold meetings of the Parliament. The rooms offer wonderful views of Big Ben and the Thames. Waterloo Train Station, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey are located within walking distance. The hotel has an excellent restaurant with national cuisine.

2.  Wales

Wales is a land of vast green meadows and ancient castles. Travelling from one village to another, it is impossible not to feel the magic vibe. There are not many hotels here, especially luxury ones. The most expensive and famous hotels are located in the capital of Wales — the city of Cardiff.

Hilton Cardiff 5*

It is located near the castle — the main attraction of the city. The Main Train Station, City Hall, Queen Street shopping street and lots of restaurants and clubs are located within walking distance. The hotel is designed in a classic Art Nouveau style, with light and pastel colours leading in the interior design. There are three restaurants and a lobby bar here.

3.  Northern Ireland: The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast 5*

It is a paradise for fans of relaxing holidays surrounded by beautiful nature and sea breezes. This elegant small hotel is located in the heart of Belfast — the capital of Northern Ireland — surrounded by the city’s most famous shopping centres and restaurants. The hotel is designed by modern architects applying the latest technology. It offers comfortable rooms, a small restaurant and a bar with its own wine cellar.

To Sum Up

Hospitality is one of the most important features of the English national character. No matter how discreet and prim the inhabitants of the Foggy Albion were called, they always had a special ability to receive guests and create comfortable conditions for them. Today, this is reflected in the quality of hotels in the UK: here, they know a lot about first-class service, excellent restaurants, comfortable interiors, and sophisticated entertainments.
