Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire Review

Leicester Square


On our recent trip to London's West End as part of Kids Week we stayed at the beautiful Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire Hotel in the Leicester Square, even though I briefly mentioned it in my post about our weekend I wanted to do a separate review as this place really warrants that. 

We love visiting London as a family but the one thing I have learned is if you have planned an action packed day than staying somewhere which is well located is key in reducing the stress that comes with carting kids from one side of a city to another. Also having somewhere comfortable, welcoming and family friendly to rest your head at the end of a busy day makes for a happy family in the morning and luckily The Radisson Blu Hampshire is all these things. Located on Leicester Square and only a stones throw away from all the theatres of the West End, the National Portrait Gallery and Trafalgar Square plus plenty of places to eat you really have everything you need.

We arrived early as the West End show we had tickets for was on around midday, our room wasn't ready yet but the reception staff could not have been more helpful and immediately whisked away our bags into storage and helped with directions to the Theatre. Once we returned our room was not only ready but we had been upgraded to a Junior Suite which was perfect for our little family of four with two small single beds and a super luxurious king. Bottled water and fresh fruit was waiting on our arrival and after having a little recharge in our room we headed back out but you could easily spend a few hours just relaxing here or popping down to the stylish city bar downstairs.

The one thing we all love doing is trying out different hotel breakfasts and my eldest especially enjoyed this, he is not a particularly adventurous eater at home but at a hotel he will give pretty much anything a try such as the Chia seed pot and fresh fruit smoothie shots. The breakfast dining area is lovely and light filled and very stylish, with staff being attentive but not intrusive in anyway and on hand to help you with anything you need. John ordered the Mexican eggs with Avocado and I had the most delicious French toast while my youngest loved the freshly baked pastries.

If your looking for an oasis in the busy capital city than I highly recommend the Radisson Blu Hampshire whether you are with kids or not as this would also make for a great child-free break as they also offer in-room spa treatments as well as a gym, luxury bar and lounge and The Leicester Square Kitchen for those who are keen foodies. Do check our our vlog from our family fun weekend on the West End.

  5. Oh it looks amazing! I love that it looks and sounds so calm and cosy in a central location. Will keep in mind for when I next take a trip to London. The breakfast looks delicious! And that bed!! That's exactly what you want from a hotel a big puffy comfy bed. Loving your overnight bag too.
