Win A Nights Stay At The Fabulous Charring Cross Hotel In London

Win A Nights Stay At The Fabulous Charring Cross Hotel In London

Last Thursday me, yours truly, the Wandering Scotsman, William K Wallace, host of London Is Cool attended a ‘Bloggers Champagne Reception’ at the Charing Cross hotel, along with various travel, destination and lifestyle bloggers. Our mission was to drink lots of champagne, sample a selection of cocktails, eat delicious canapés, make a desert that tasted as good as it looked (see picture down below) and learn a little bit about the hotel.

The Charing Cross hotel sits right next to, above and overlooking Charing Cross Station … I didn’t even know there was a hotel there until I went to the bloggers event – such a great location. And fear not you can’t hear a squeak from outside – there are two sets of double glazing. The hotel was opened in 1865 and the beautiful interior of the building has a wonderful timeless feel about it. Even though there have been quite a few refurbishments – the most recent being £2.2 million spent on upgrading the Buckingham Wing – they have thankfully sympathetically retained the original Victorian splendour and feel throughout.

And the good news is that there is a competition which you can enter to win a nights stay for two in what is a quality 4 Star hotel in a great location, situated in the heart of London. The winner and their companion will also receive complimentary dinner in their Brassiere and a fantastic breakfast in the morning. But hold on … there is even more, during the evening you will be invited to a personal cocktail making and tasting session in the recently refurbished Eleanor’s Cocktail Bar.

Right … lets get down to business! To be in with a chance of winning a nights stay for two, at the 4 star Charring Cross Hotel all you have to do is visit Win a tantalising night’s stay in central London’s deluxe Charing Cross Hotel. And then answer the following question, Who would you invite as your guest to the Charing Cross Hotel and why? Remember, if your not in it, you can’t win it!

Please note the closing date for the competition is 7th October 2011 at 5pm and entrants must be over 18 years of age. The competition is initially only available to readers of the bloggers who attended the Champagne Reception until its official launch on Monday 12th of September.

The Charring Cross Hotel is a part of the Guoman Hotel group which gives you an idea of what quality to expect. One thing that I have noticed during recent visits to Guoman hotels is that each of their hotels have their own individual characteristics and unique feel. Which is what keeps them ahead of the game…


  1. Love your blog! Makes me want to come and visit London!

  2. What a beautiful place indeed. I’d like to stay there, but I’ll probably never make it to London. Champagne is my very favorite cold adult beverage.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  3. Sounds like a fun night

  4. Jaosn, everybody should visit London at least … many times!

    Comedy Plus, it was indeed a beautiful place inside and never say never.

    Mo, it was a great evening, enjoyed by all that were there…
