One of the main benefits of using serviced apartments is being able to take full advantage of the kitchen facilities provided, but what you may not know is that the growing trend of apart-hotels means you don’t have to miss out on the dining experiences you’d normally associate with staying at a hotel. Many of the top London apartment-hotels we feature in our portfolio have an impressive array of on-site amenities for guests to take advantage of, with restaurants being one of the most prevalent. While many of our London serviced apartments are close by to acclaimed restaurants, there are a number that have excellent in-house offerings. We’ve put together a few of our favourites to show you the variety of dining options available.
Maple & The Gate
The Gate Apartments are the epitome of sophistication: perfectly tailored to suit the business traveller, these luxury studio, one and two bedroom apartments provide a stylish haven from which to live and work in the city. With a first class range of on-site amenities to make the most of, guests can enjoy a life of luxury and, vitally, a comfortable routine while staying in London for business.
Partnered with top London food brand, Maple & CO, guests of The Gate can enjoy freshly cooked meals prepared in-house with the very best seasonal produce. Ideal for busy business travellers with many corporate commitments to prepare for and attend, grab a quick breakfast bite from a range of healthy, delicious options: avocado, salmon, pastries, a free-from bakery for those with specific dietary requirements, and even fresh egg-to-go if you’re on the move. Open all day, guests may also make the most of the lunch and dinner selection with hot boxes, soups, salads and sandwiches on offer.
Travelling for business needn’t mean you should compromise on your routine or nutrition – and at The Gate Apartments, you don’t have to.
London Bridge Hotel Apartments – Londinium Restaurant
Located in the dynamic heart of the British capital, London Bridge Hotel Apartments are designed with business travellers in mind. With a modern, open-plan design and grand, opulent furnishings, these two bedroom apartments fit perfectly against the contemporary backdrop of London and are unsurprisingly a top choice for local or international professionals.
The Quarter Bar & Lounge provides a transformative space for any work or social event. Take advantage of the ambient, charming setting and enjoy morning brunches for interviews or corporate meetings, then make the most of the prompt lunchtime service with express lunches ideal if you’re against the clock working on a busy schedule in the city. By night, the Quarter bar evolves into a stylish, relaxed after work haunt for drinks and cocktails to celebrate a deal closure or to provide a space to let your hair down after a busy day. You can even book in for afternoon tea in the Lounge, ideal to make a great first impression for a new partner or if you want to treat a colleague or visiting friend.
As far as on-site restaurants go, The Londinium Restaurant is one of the best: a classic British restaurant drawing upon the hotel’s renowned Roman heritage to create a grand setting in which to indulge in exemplary culinary creations. Equally, if you would prefer to have some alone time and still enjoy great food, make the most of the in-room dining service bringing food straight to your apartment door.
Brick Street Apartments – NOBU Restaurant
Brick Street Apartments are a great alternative to a hotel room for those visiting London on business. Situated just around the corner from Hyde Park and ten minutes from Green Park station, these apartments are in a superb location with easy access to the rest of central London and direct connections to the West End.
Guests also have direct access to the Metropolitan hotel, which is home to the Michelin-starred NOBU restaurant. NOBU’s reputation has been built on a style of cooking that draws heavily on traditional Japanese techniques but influenced by South American cuisine. It’ll take more than a few visits to work your way through the exhaustive menu but opting for a bento box gives you a snapshot of some of the establishment’s best dishes. The restaurant also has a separate sushi bar that is perfect for informal lunches and private dining as well as a delivery service so you don’t even need to leave your apartment.
The on-site restaurants available in many of our London apart-hotels are a fantastic option for business travellers who are staying in the city on a tight schedule and don’t have time to travel around in search of a good meal. However, when you have some down time and want to explore the dining experiences dotted further afield, peruse our list of the best restaurants in London’s business areas and best London options for vegan corporate travellers.
