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.
Great Northern Hotel is a Tribute Portfolio Hotel – part of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts group.
Eating and Drinking at the Great Northern Hotel
The hotel is home to Plum + Spilt Milk – an elegant restaurant serving classic British and European dishes. Acclaimed chef Chris Fordham-Smith heads up the kitchen and the menu is built around the finest locally sourced British ingredients cooked simply, but creatively. One of the most beautiful dining rooms in King’s Cross, Plum + Split Milk evokes the old-world glamour of luxury travel.
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 is a great meeting spot.
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 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.
