CONDE Nast Traveller has revealed the best hotels in the UK, which you can stay in for less than £140 each a night.
The annual Readers’ Choice Awards 2020 includes the top hotels all around the world, as well as the best in London, the rest of the UK and Ireland – here are the best of the bunch.
Best hotel in London – Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park
One of the most iconic hotels in the UK, the Mandarin Oriental London has had some famous guests – Sir Winston Churchill was a regular while the Queen and her sister, Princess Margaret learned to dance in the hotel’s ballroom.
Built in 1889, it suffered from a huge roof fire in 2018 which took 120 firefighters and 20 engines to put out – and Robbie Williams was staying with his wife Ava Field at the time.
Inside is Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner, an underground spa and Bar Boulud, with Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud.
If you can stretch to a penthouse suite, you will get floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the London Eye and the Shard.
- One night with Booking.com – from £370pp per night
Best hotel in the rest of the UK – Gleneagles, Scotland
Also winning the AA Hospitality Awards last year, The Gleneagles Hotel has also been voted the best in the rest of the UK, excluding London.
The 232-room hotel, with 10 restaurants and bars, featured the only two-Michelin-starred restaurant in Scotland, run by chef Andrew Fairlie, who died last year.
Outdoorsy guests can make the most of the activities, with everything from falconry and archery to horse riding and off-road driving available.
The five-star hotel is also showing its thanks by donating five years worth of rooms to NHS heroes during the pandemic with its new Our Turn To Care campaign.
- One night with Booking.com – from £162.50pp per night
Best hotel in Ireland – The Westbury, Dublin
