King's Cross soft opening

The Great Northern Hotel, sited at the crossover between King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, has had a ‘soft’ opening, following a comprehensive £40m rebuilding programme.  Rooms are currently available from £160.

First opened in 1854 as the first of the new generation of Victorian railway hotels it offers 90 rooms, houses a ground floor bar and on the first floor the Plum + Spilt Milk restaurant, destined to become a neighbourhood dining room with views overlooking London’s newest public square, the King’s Cross square, and St Pancras International.  Set in an elegant yet informal space, it has been created for people to meet, eat, work and socialise.  There is an intimate mezzanine lounge overlooking the bar, bound to become popular for small business meetings.

The hotel is in some ways very much Victorian classic with an overwhelming sense of space and light offering high ceilings, sweeping staircases, large sash windows and wide curved corridors that are hallmarks of the original architecture.  Every floor offers guests a complimentary pantry with a selection of home cooked snacks and drinks, daily newspapers and books.  www.gnhlondon.com
