Great Northern Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of King’s Cross St Pancras.

The Grade II listed building, originally designed by Lewis Cubitt, has been exquisitely refurbished and features over ninety luxurious rooms. The restoration has seen many of the hotel’s original features retained and the redesign reflects all the style and class of this iconic building’s past.

The hotel was recently voted one of the top ten hotels in the UK by the Fiona Duncan of the Telegraph and made Condé Naste Traveller’s 2014 hot list.

Eating and Drinking at the Great Northern Hotel
The hotel is home to Plum + Spilt Milk – an elegant brasserie serving classic British and European dishes. Acclaimed chef Mark Sargeant runs the kitchen where the focus is on the best British ingredients, simply yet creatively cooked.

On the ground floor and opening onto the Western Concourse at King’s Cross Station is the glamorous GNH Bar . This art deco, Manhattan style bar serves breakfast from 7am, lunch and cocktails until late.

The hotel also hosts Kiosk – a hatch serving up delicious hand-carved roast meat sandwiches and Monmouth coffee. Kiosk is directly off the main concourse.

The history
The Great Northern Hotel first opened its doors in 1854 to the patrons of the Great Northern Railway Company. Embracing a revolutionary new age of steam, they made the hotel a glamorous destination and a stylish point of departure. Derelict for 12 years, the hotel has been brought back to life with a £40 million pound facelift. Read more about the history of the Great Northern Hotel.
