UK’s Most Expensive Hotel Rooms: Perhaps you’ve just won the lottery, had a massive inheritance or a win at the casino, or perhaps you’re just looking to treat that special someone to a night in one of the UK’s best hotels which they will never forget. The prices may be eye-watering, but what exactly do you get for upwards of £1000 per night?
The 5 star Langham Hotel in central London just oozes class and sophistication. The building dates back to the 1860s, and the hotel’s suites are larger than the average house. For your £1500 per night you get separate sitting room, work or study area, luxury bathroom and even an infinity bath. The style is classic British, with lots of beautiful fabrics and bespoke furniture in all of the rooms and communal areas of the hotel. Famous guests at the Langham have included Princess Diana, Charles de Gaulle and Winston Churchill.
If you’d prefer to get out of the town and stay at one of the best country houses in the UK, book a suite at Cliveden, to the west of the capital. Cliveden’s style is very traditional and very British – think lots of chintz, high backed armchairs, quality oak living furniture, original artwork on the walls and heaps of period features like high ceilings and plasterwork. The best room in the hotel is the Lady Astor Suite, named after one of the former residents of the house.
At the other end of the modernity scale from Cliveden is the ultra-modern Lowry hotel in Manchester. The rooms are spacious and airy, with a minimalist feel compared to more traditional hotels. Expect high-end technology in each room with iPod docks, flat screen televisions and broadband internet. Prices are lower than the prestigious London hotels, and the experience is very different too.
Right at the top of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, just next to the castle, is the Witchery hotel and restaurant. It’s a quirky place with low ceilings and an old-fashioned feel which is just like walking onto a Harry Potter set. The style is very gothic, with lots of red, black, dark furniture and heavy drapes in each of the rooms, and as the hotel is said to be haunted, you might get a bit more than you had bargained for when staying overnight. There are only 8 rooms in total, making it a great choice for a quiet, romantic getaway.
Celtic Manor, Wales
Celtic Manor hosted the Ryder Cup golf tournament in 2010, and it is also the location for Wales’ best hotel. The style is all about relaxation, and the purpose-built hotel and spa is designed to put guests at their ease and provide all of the luxuries and comforts of home. The ultimate in luxury is the Presidential Suite, which has a dining room seating up to 10, a terrace, kitchen and even a guest bedroom and bathroom. This room will set you back just over £1000 per night, but smaller suites are more affordable at £300 per night.
