Birmingham, UK


This isn't so much a hotel review, I stayed here for my birthday and frankly I was enjoying it too much to be taking notes, I did however think it deserved its own blog post. As a few of you may know if you read my birthday post, Sean treated me to a night in one of their gorgeous suites. I've wanted to stay in the Burlington Hotel for ages, and so I was really excited to finally get inside...

We actually stayed in the Isaac Horton suite which is huge and has its own living room! I'd never stayed in a room this big before and I loved every second of it. The room featured 2 tv's, a mini bar, multiple cupboards and wardrobes, a gorgeous dressing table and one of the most beautiful bathrooms I've ever seen. It had everything you needed to feel comfortable including tea and coffee, biscuits, a bottle of spring water, and some lovely mini toiletries.

The view was also a bonus. I love to be high up and nothing makes me happier than looking out over a city. Although we weren't up in the clouds our room was on a corner with several windows so we got a great view of Birmingham. 

While we were there Sean treated us to a bottle of champagne. It was bought up to us by room service in a bucket of ice which was replaced later in the night free of charge. As it was my birthday and all I wanted to do was relax and enjoy myself, I ran a bath using the lavender bubble bath shown above. It smelt amazing and I easily spent an hour lying in the bath sipping on the champagne Sean bought.

Unfortunately while we were there the elevator broke and we had to take the stairs. It was a bit of a walk up to the 4th floor but who can complain when the staircase looks so amazing. The whole hotel had a country estate feel but with the convenience of being in the city and you definitely feel like a VIP when you stay here.  

I also thoroughly enjoyed breakfast. When you arrive to breakfast you are given the option to have a full English brought to you or you can help yourself to the continental breakfast buffet. Me and Sean both opted for continental as we can't resist a bit of cheese and ham and although we had to wait a while for the ham to be put out it was worth it. I made up a ham and cheese bagel and honestly it was the best bagel I've ever eaten in my whole life. 

I really enjoyed staying at the Burlington hotel and I'd like to stay there again for another special occasion.
