Famed hangout of the likes of Oscar Wilde, Mick Jagger and John Lennon, The Courthouse Hotel is one of the capital’s premier 5 star resorts.

Located across the road from shopping  hot spot, Carnaby street the hotel offers visitors an ideal base to explore the city with Regent, bond and oxford streets all mere minutes away.

Housed in the former Great Marlborough Street Magistrates Court, with many of the original interiors still on display (including a huge vault) in the striking Grade II listed Georgian building.

The hotel manages to be deceiving from the outside as the smart exterior hides the vast size of the hotel one inside. A large lobby awaits with huge L shaped sofas and ornate Oyster shell inspired seats, with their iridescent shimmer glowing in the light.

On our visit we stayed in one of the Magistrate Suites, a beautifully decorated room offering a grand King size bed, Italian-sourced Bathroom interiors and separate living room area for entertaining. One of the best features of the suite was its view, looking over Carnaby street and the Liberty London’s famous Tudor inspired facade. the suite comes with a desk working area, large flat screen TV’s with satellite channels, luxurious soft furnishing and free high speed internet throughout so you’ll always be connected.

The Soho Sky Terrace stands as the jewel in the crown of the Courthouse Hotel,  refurbished in 20115 the terrace overlooks Great Marlborough Street, and is the perfect setting for afternoon cocktails or to grab a light bite to eat.

Also on offer are two restaurants Silk providing tasty Asian fare and The Carnaby, a modern brassiere offering lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and casual refreshments throughout the day.

If you want to rejuvenate after a hard day then also the hotel’s Sanook Spa is a must.  Located in the basement of the hotel it offers  range of luxurious spa treatments, including facials, body massages, sauna and fitness rooms. If you fancy a workout then a few lengths the heated indoor swimming pool is ideal.

overall we had a great experience staying at The Courthouse Hotel, staff were warm and accommodating with rooms spacious and tastefully decorated, overlooking one of the best locations in the city Carnaby Street.  It’s Soho locations makes it ideal to explore all of London has to offer, with numerous shopping and dining options mere minutes away.  So next tome you;re in town, book yourself a stay.
