When the words bed and breakfast are mentioned in tandem, people often conjure up images of quaint cottages by the sea or in the deepest countryside, with clashing bedding and wallpaper, chequered tablecloths and overcooked bacon in the morning. But at the Marble Arch by Montcalm in the heart of the UK’s capital, bed and breakfast takes on a whole new standard of luxury.
The hotel’s Bed and Breakfast Package makes sure that guests are provided with a comfortable room to stay in and are served a filling breakfast the following morning to set them up for a busy day exploring the many attractions of London.
The Marble Arch by Montcalm is extremely well-connected to the rest of the capital thanks to its Mayfair location and close proximity to the Marble Arch Underground station. The hotel is also just around the corner from Hyde Park and is a short distance from Regent’s Park.
Guests who opt for the Bed and Breakfast Package at the hotel are guaranteed a luxury five-star bedroom in their chosen room category, where they will find complimentary mineral water and a selection of ripe fruit waiting for them on their arrival, while free access to high-speed broadband and Wi-Fi will be available throughout their visit.
Rooms booked under this package come with free access to the Marble Arch by Montcalm’s spa facilities, which are located just across the street from the hotel at one of its sister properties. The Spa at the Montcalm features a steam room, sauna, fully-equipped gym, Jacuzzi-style pool and another pool dedicated to exercise. There are also heated loungers at the poolside where guests can unwind with a drink and a good book or where business travellers can catch up on their emails amid relaxing surroundings.
Following an excellent night’s sleep in one of our uber-comfortable beds, you’ll receive a complimentary full English breakfast for two in the hotel’s onsite restaurant, while lighter options are also on offer if that’s what you’d prefer. The Marble Arch by Montcalm restaurant serves a delicious breakfast every morning, while an a la carte menu is also available to allow guests to customise their dining experience to suit their individual tastes.
After a hearty breakfast, it’s unlikely that you’ll be hungry at lunchtime, but the Crescent Restaurant and Lounge at the establishment’s sister hotel across the road does a gorgeous afternoon tea that you should just about have an appetite for by the time it is served.
This site is also home to the Nirvana Kitchen, which calls itself a ‘Pan-Asian odyssey’ as a result of its interesting fusion dishes. For instance, the menu features venison thinly sliced and doused in soy sauce, merging British game with traditional Asian flavours. Guineafowl Kushi, a dish that sees the bird marinated in soy, chilli, sesame, lemon and chives, is another example of this.
There are also express lunch and early evening menus that feature small plates such as vegetable tempura and black cod marinated in homemade harissa, while mochi is an absolute must for dessert for the full ‘Pan-Asian odyssey’ experience. This dish comprises mango, salted caramel, yuzu and coconut mochi (similar to ice cream), washed down with a shot of sake.
