He is also an author of five recipe books and a television presenter on The Lifestyle Channel.
Located in the heart of Knightsbridge, The Berkeley’s location is fantastic. The walk to Sloane St., Harvey Nichols and Harrods gives you just enough time to plan your purchases. Along with the shopping, there are some great restaurants like Zuma nearby. And there’s really no excuse not to take in a few of the London’s best tourists sites, like Buckingham Palace which is an easy stroll down history lane.
The bed was comfortable and our room was rather quaint (dare I say small). There wasn’t much room for extra luggage so if you plan on staying here, travel light. There was a huge window in the bathroom with fantastic views over Knightsbridge. I would recommend upgrading to a suite to ensure a more spacious and comfortable stay.
The restaurant, Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, is good enough for anybody, no matter how sophisticated your palate. A late night drink at the hotel’s Blue Bar is highly recommended. Great cocktails in a really nice atmosphere.
A unique feature of The Berkeley is the beautiful rooftop pool. The roof is opened on clear days and is a great way to relax in London. The gym is also very good.
