Yesterday I told you all about our trip to the Gu Factory in Walthamstow, today I am telling
you all about the hotel we stayed in The Westbridge in Stratford.
We were due to check into the hotel at 3pm and on arrival we were told that our room
was unfortunately delayed as it wasn't quite ready for us.
So we were told that we were welcome to use the coffee house and that we could have
a complementary coffee on the house.
After half an hour they came into the coffee house to let us know that our room was ready, we checked in
and then was taken up to our room which the Gu company had booked for us.
On our way to our room we passed this beautiful lounge area where we were told
newspapers were free and we could use the computers if we wanted to.
We were also told about the free wifi which we didn't need a code for.
Our room was number 8 the Montana Suite!
Gu had booked us one of the suites which are the biggest of the rooms in the hotel.
We also had a three course dinner and breakfast included in the deal.
As you open the door to the Suite you have a slot to put your key card in
so that you have air conditioning and electric in your room.
You then have a small staircase and when you get to the top its a really breathtaking room.
On a side table in the room we found a kettle and a selection of
water, teas, coffees and hot chocolate and two biscuits.
After looking around the room the first thing we did was have a coffee whilst relaxing before going down to dinner.
At the top of the stairs there is a little table and chairs with a lovely vase of fresh flowers.
This is there as you are able to order room service from the dinner menu if you wish to.
The room also has a little fridge which was good for keeping my Gu Puds in overnight
and a safe which we didn't use as we were only staying the one night.
The room also had a large TV which Stuart used briefly for playing games on, and
a good size chest of draws and wardrobe which fitted the black and white theme of the room perfectly.
The bed is King size with an orthopaedic mattress which was
extremely comfortable to sleep on.
As you can see we were also given some lovely and soft robes and some small milk chocolate which was a lovely touch.
Next to the bed was a lovely and comfy two seater sofa and a glass coffee table.
There is also a small balcony with a little table and chairs which meant we could relaxing and get some fresh air
for a bit before we went out and we got to see a stunning sunset and views over Canary Wharf and the Olympic park. We also chose to sit out on the balcony and have a coffee before we checked out the next day.
Our room of course also had a bathroom but the main feature for me was the
Jacuzzi bath which was totally bliss and just so relaxing!
We certainly recommend the Westbridge from the moment we stepped into the hotel
to the minute we left the staff were lovely, very polite and happy to help.
The food was also perfect which is for another post (check back later today)
