Your chocolate egg stash might still be intact but your thoughts may already be turning to the May half term and with climate protection dominating the news over Easter, is there any better time for a UK Staycation?
The Z Hotel chain offer a great choice for anyone planning a break in some of the UK’s coolest cities. With 11 hotels and counting, located in Bath, Liverpool, Glasgow and London, a stay in a Z Hotel has you covered if you’re looking for a luxury budget break before the big summer holiday spend.
We stayed at the Z Covent Garden which is perfectly located for an assault on London’s Theatreland or for people watching and performance art in the famous Covent Garden Piazza. The hotel has 113 rooms which includes family rooms, each of which feature some very cool bunk beds. Tired feet will welcome a rest after pounding the streets of London and with an HD SmartTV at the foot of each bed, featuring games, apps, internet and sport, there’ll be few arguments over who gets the top bunk.
The rooms are compact but whilst this is a budget hotel, there is no shortage on luxury. The crisp bed linen and minimalist interior of each room provides a welcome sense of calm after a busy day in the heart of the capital and the sense of escape from the bustling streets below is enhanced by the view from our large window over St Paul’s church. Friendly staff are on hand to help you plan your day. Whether it’s transport, tickets or restaurant recommendations, the team is as dedicated to the enjoyment of your time outside the hotel as they are once you’re checked in. At the end of a very busy day, evidence of this comes in the welcome guise of complimentary wine and locally sourced cheese served in the Z Café in all hotels from 5-8pm. Likewise, after a peaceful night’s sleep, the Z Café provides a fresh and healthy selection of breakfast treats to ensure you are refueled and revitalized for another day of fun and sightseeing.
Visit Z Hotels and explore the sights in Bath, Glasgow, Liverpool as well as London with 8 centrally located properties in Shoreditch, City, Victoria, Gloucester Place, Soho, Tottenham Court Road, Piccadilly and Covent Garden.
