Ever wanted the luxury and service of a hotel with the intimacy of a private residence? Well, now you can have it. We all know when travelling with children that a tantrum in the hotel foyer or a food fight in the breakfast room with lots of quiet diners around you is no picnic, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice first class service and luxurious, pampering surroundings.
Just a short jaunt from Sloane Square are the new Apartments by the Sloane Club that offer the services and amenities of a five star hotel (including the all-important concierge) with the privacy of your own front door. And the best bit is that they have introduced an alliance with the infamous Norland agency so you can leave your children knowing they are in truly exceptional hands.
The interiors of each gorgeous and very spacious apartment are fresh and bright, flirting with Art Deco touches along the way (but there are no original Art Deco antiques so toddlers can roam freely!) Aside from the aforementioned concierge (who is there 24 hours a day for guests), each apartment is loaded with everything from Nespresso machines to L’Occitane toiletries, Siberian goose down duvets and Samsung SMART TV Technology. The concierge will gladly advise you on the area, or arrange transportation when needed, restaurant bookings and even theatre tickets. If you really want a proper vacation from domestic goddessness, food is available to order from The Sloane Club. Alternatively, the Club Chefs are available for private hire to prepare dinners in the designer kitchens of The Apartments themselves (with wait staff as an additional option, of course).
Aside from the esteemed childcare options available through Norland Nannies, the Apartments have also partnered with Fortnum & Mason to offer exclusive offers and VIP experiences to guests. So world class babysitters, a stunning Sloane Square address, private chefs and the luxury touches of a hotel? Yep – we’re sold.
