The Great Northern Hotel, which re-opened in King’s Cross earlier this year following a comprehensive £40m renovation, has scooped a hat-trick of prestigious awards.
The hotel, which sits between King’s Cross and St Pancras International stations, won ‘Best New Hotel’ at the Conde Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence and two further awards in the International Hotel Awards – ‘Best five-star Hotel Interior UK’ and ‘Best Hotel Interior UK’.
Originally designed by renowned architect Lewis Cubitt, the Great Northern Hotel opened in 1854 as the first of the new generation of Victorian railway hotels. The restoration has seen it re-open for the first time in 12 years with many of the hotel’s original features retained.
It is also home to the excellent Plum and Spilt Milk and the GNH Bar, which takes up almost the entire ground floor and opens directly into the new Western Concourse of King’s Cross station and onto Pancras Road.
