How family-friendly is the Cavendish Hotel London?
Initially, I was a little skeptic about taking Amy to a luxury hotel like the Cavendish, however there was no need to worry. We were made very welcome and no one bat an eye lid when Amy got a bit louder during dinner or threw her crayons around. In fact, Amy was a bit of an ice-breaker. The receptionists started chatting to her while we checked in, the restaurant manager brought her an activity pack and smiled at her whenever she walked past us and the lady from room service gave her a biscuit when she ran across the corridor. She really enjoyed all the attention she got.
Our room was also perfect for families traveling with children. It was child-friendly and Amy absolutely loved running around and exploring it without being restricted by bulky furniture. The restaurant was prepared for families with young children too. There were two different types of highchairs available and activity packs kept kids entertained while they waited for their food. Travel cots were also available upon request.
All in all, we had a fabulous time at the Cavendish Hotel London and would thoroughly recommend it for a city break with or without children. Despite being in the centre of London, the Cavendish is a beautifully quiet hotel that allows you to put your feet up and relax after a long day exploring the British capital. It’s immaculately clean, spacious and the staff are beyond friendly.
I know that older kids of blogging friends received a welcome pack and kiddie dressing gown when they stayed, so I thought there would be something similar available for younger children, but unfortunately there wasn’t. A nice idea for toddlers and pre-schoolers would be a welcome pack with crayons or some stickers, as I could imagine there would be sad faces, if you travel with two children and only the older one receives some goodies. Saying that, had I not heard about the welcome pack from other bloggers, I really wouldn’t have missed it.
Disclosure: We were guests of the Cavendish Hotel London for one night and also received complimentary dinner and breakfast. My opinion however is 100% mine!
