Little Venice London Luxury Hotel The Colonnade
If you were wondering whether it's possible to fancy a hotel, I can confirm that yes, it is possible.  A couple of weeks ago I was sent to The Colonnade Hotel by Prezzybox, a luxurious hotel located in Little Venice, London.  Speaking as someone with a special place in their heart for flamboyant decor, gold trimmings and quintessential English charm, The Colonnade Hotel was the perfect place to spend a couple of days.  The heatwave was still in full swing, I'd cleared my schedule in advance and I was more than a little ready to wind down and soak up the mass of beauty...

My favourite aspect of the hotel would undoubtedly be the living area located next to reception; the space resembles that of which could be found in various European hideaways and there's so much to look at.  The space would be perfect for catching up on some emails, or perhaps taking an hour out of your busy schedule to read a book/magazine.  Having said that, the gorgeous weather made the outdoor patio at the front of the hotel a very close contender.  Ice-cold drinks enjoyed under parasols to the sight of passers-by going about their business?  Dreamy.

Okay, moving on to the actual accommodation.  I was in for an absolute treat for my stay at The Colonnade Hotel as I found myself upgraded to the adjoining, three-bedroom luxury apartment.  Complete with its own front door, you climb one flight of stairs to reveal the kitchen leading out onto a balcony overlooking adjacent townhouses.  In the other direction you've got a spacious living area, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a fireplace.  A luxurious bathroom can be found on the second floor, along with a bedroom complete with plenty of storage space for your wardrobe throughout your stay.  Finally, one more flight of stairs sees more sleeping space, as well as another shower room.

Psst! My best advice when booking your stay would be to request in advance a room above ground level at this hotel.

My personal favourites?  The bubble bath, balcony views and plush sofa in the living room.  A couple of highlights included bringing back pizza and dessert to the apartment in the evening, as well as sitting on the balcony with a glass of lemonade early in the morning.  Bliss.
