We have just got some juicy goss at the G.I Joe: Retaliation press conference attended by the HOT Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock – look out for that post coming soon – but first we decided to do a bit of investigating while we were at the ultra fancy Corinthia Hotel.
We love reading things like Time Out but you can never really tell what its like from that so we have some photos that we took and we experienced it as you might – paying for everything and being wowed by the opulence….A home away from home for stars like Bajan beauty Rihanna, The Corinthia is as glam as they come, certainly outdoing The Dorchester and The Grosvenor place with their modern surroundings.
Worried about busting the budget on an afternoon snack, Zoe decided to go for a glass of sparkling water, while Tajha went for some refreshing and exotic Mango tea. A snack of fries was served with some heinz tomato ketchup, mayonaise, mustard and HP barbecue sauce in some ultra cute condiment jars.
Including service charge this only set us back £14.63 showing that you don’t always need to spend a fortune to pass an afternoon in a top hotel. If you’re looking to blow a bit more of a VIP budget that us, then you can choose from your typical Club Sandwich for £17 to a Cumbrian chargrilled beef burger served with a choice of hen eggs, dried cured bacon or Mrs Kirkhams Lancashire cheese with fries for £14.
Or if you are feeling adventurous there’s a hand chopped beef steak tartare with toasted sour dough for starters for £10 – the menu is that vast!. Look at the choice of hot beverages for a start!
For this plush setting- and cutlery – there is a price tag to match whether you’re coming for an Afternoon Tea like us or a three course meal with some tasty treats to finish off this service like a almond meringue or a cranberry apple tart.
No matter what you spend you should see at least one if not two celebrities entering or leaving The Corinthia and that is worth paying for!
