5 MAGICAL HOTELS TO MAKE YOU FEEL FESTIVE

THE BLOOMSBURY, LONDON

When you want to escape the craziness of the bright lights and frantic shoppers on London’s Oxford Street, retire to this charming, rather sedate corner of the city and the neo-Georgian Bloomsbury hotel. After a hard day’s gift-hunting, order a stiff drink in one of the many comfortable living rooms accompanied by roaring fires, William Morris wallpaper and Roger Fry portraits. For an extra dose of festive cheer, the hotel has its very own winter wonderland at the all-day restaurant and bar, Dalloway Terrace, which has been transformed with festive fir trees, hanging pinecones, sheepskin blankets and knitted hot-water bottles – we recommend a Belsazar vermouth and the signature truffle fondue.
