Some of the nations favourite football players form Chelsea F.C find it difficult to resist popping over to the Wyndham hotel, after all it is opposite their training ground. The likes of Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry have all been seen staying, dining and relaxing at this super plush hotel and we can see why.
The Wyndham Grand is not just a hotel, it is a dining experience, a spa, and one of the best places to sit back and enjoy a London street themed afternoon tea. If you want the full luxury experience then we highly advise you rent a room, check into the spa and scoff the scones until you feel a little queasy.
The key thing to remember about this super swanky hotel is that it is OPPOSITE the Chelsea ground which means the players can be seen here A LOT. So if you want some eye candy and enjoy an amazing hotel experience then we suggest you get on Twitter to see when the players will be kicking back at the hotel bar.
If you want to stay in a super luxe hotel but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of central London, then this is what we recommend:
HOW TO GET IN: The Wyndham gets pretty busy as they host many events and business meetings. It is vital that you book and the same principle should be applied to dining at the riverside restaurant. Either call 020 7823 3000 or visit the website.
HOW MUCH TO PAY: It is pretty pricey. Afternoon tea starts at £28 which is fairly reasonabe, but dinner will be in the region of £70 per head, whilst the rooms start at £175 per night. That has tightened our purse strings a little.
THE YAYS: (1) Its a lovely location as it overlooks the Chelsea Harbor and football ground. (2) The Earl Grey creme brulee is like heaven in your mouth. (3) The hotel and restaurant is a celebrity magnet. We’ve seen the entire Chelsea team, Robbie Williams and Peter Andre there.
THE NAYS: (1) It is very expensive, but what do you expect from a hotel in Chelsea Harbour? (2) The other guests can be a little snooty and pretentious. (3) On the night we went there were a lot of groups of businessmen – not a young atmosphere that we were expecting.
INSIDER KNOWLEDGE: The Raimat Abadia rose wine is Christine Bleakley’s tipple of choice when she dines here with Frank.
WHAT COULD HAPPEN: This hotel is not only is one of the poshest hotspots in London, but a stones throw away from the Chelsea ground. Last time we went, who did we see but Chelsea player Ashley Cole. He was looking pretty dapper and seemed to be loving the attention from the ladies – no surprises there then.
