Well, where do I start?
A very tall building with a minimal modern outlook, but step inside and you’ll find a sparkly open-plan ground floor oozing city coolness with calm spaces filled with chandeliers that dangle from the ceiling, comfortable benches and seating areas, with friendly staff on hand 24/7. The social space is divided into areas in which to work, socialise or wine and dine.
You may remember my good friend Sophie of Music in Motion PR from some of my previous reviews and event write ups, and since Lockdown has eased up on some restrictions Sophie invited me to join her for dinner and drinks whilst she stayed at The Pullman St Pancras.
Of course I joined her!
It felt so good to meet up and be able to sit in and drink and dine.
The Pullman has 312 rooms, spread over 16 floors that are spacious and attractive with slate-grey furnishings accentuated with dashes of colour. All equipped with irons and ironing boards and laptop-sized safes. The necessities for a good night’s sleep can be found in the huge comfy beds, blackout curtains and double-glazed windows (a must as the hotel overlooks busy Euston Road). Bathrooms are modern, powerful square rain showers, luxury C.O. Bigelow toiletries and great lighting and mirrors!
The GA KINGS X BAR & KITCHEN is unbelievably classy and is exactly as described on the website;
The food is amazing and staff are incredibly professional and friendly.
The GA here is very upscale and well decorated.
My ‘Tried & Tasted’ recommendations are;
The English Garden – A Prosecco and Gin duo with a pretty sprig of rosemary – The rosemary seriously adds some mellow oomph to this classy cocktail!
The Royal Tai – A royal twist on the Mai Tai with house blended rhum – A yummy creeper!
The Embankment – Tequila and Pink Grapefruit mixed with some zesty flavours – Definitely a fruity favourite of mine.
Myself and Sophie ordered a late night meal from the All Day Dining Menu, you can’t go wrong with amazing quality meals at such reasonable prices.
British Fish & Chips – Battered cod, chips, mushy peas & tartare sauce – The portion of cod and chips was perfect in size and cooked to perfection, I am a bit of a fussy foodie when it comes to sauces so I was pleasantly surprised with the tartare sauce that tasted homemade and not like those bland packet ones served elsewhere.
Classic Flatbread with Smoked Salami – A healthier take on pizza? Sophie enjoyed her food and had also previously tried the scallops and parmesan truffle fries – telling me it was ‘Really Nice Food’
The pullman hotel is very close to three main train stations – King’s Cross, St Pancras International and Euston – overlooking historic attractions such as the world-famous British Museum, British Library, and Vibrant Granary Square making it a popular choice for both business and leisure.
“I had a really nice couple of evenings here with Sophie and found 0 faults with any of the services here.
Definitely a 10/10 Hotel and will no doubt be back real soon!”
