[Hotel Review] Four Seasons – Ten Trinity Square London
A home from home
Weddings The Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square London is set in the heart of London. With a beautifully impressive façade, inside is just as gorgeous as out. The 100-year-old building used to house offices but recently renovated is now home to 100 rooms, including 11 suites and private residences and a members club.
This place really doesn’t feel like a hotel. We were greeted by men in elegant outfits and guided to the grand marble lobby, where we were met by the lovely Romas, who immediately escorted us to our suite.
Situated on the ground floor, we enjoyed the Pepys Suite, a Grand Heritage Suite of 1500 square feet. It was truly huge and utterly gorgeous, with wood panelling and incredibly high ceilings soaring up to five metres high!
Huge mirrors, side tables with fresh flowers, and so many beautifully restored original features made space a perfect place to relax. The metal frame four-poster bed and powder grey chairs were so inviting, and there was plenty of space in the walk-in closet; I would definitely have been happy to live there for a while!
And then we saw the bathroom… Floor to ceiling marble with a striking gold mosaic curving behind the bath, this room was jaw-droppingly beautiful. Gold taps, his and hers basins and a monsoon shower gave this room a fabulous luxury feel.
A lovely welcome card and a teddy for our daughter greeted us with three cakes and a huge fruit platter – very welcome after our journey into town. The staff are just lovely and make such an effort to get to know you. We were greeted by name on more than one occasion; it really gave the hotel a unique and caring feel.
This would be the perfect place to get ready for your wedding – the suite is light, spacious and has a gorgeously uplifting feel to it. But, equally, it would be a lovely honeymoon escape or a first-night stay.
Ten Trinity Square has three restaurants, an Asian – Mei Ume, French – La Dame de Pic London and the Rotunda Lounge, serving lunches. We dined at Mei Ume, a gorgeous modern Asian inspired venue serving modern Chinese and Japanese dishes. It has such a vibrant atmosphere with great music and amazing food. The staff’s attention was again lovely, not over intrusive but welcoming, and Simone especially made our young daughter feel equally as welcome, bringing her chopsticks and making sure we had everything we needed.
The food was exquisite. We enjoyed dim sum with extravagant gold leaf, duck carved at the table, blackened cod and a gorgeous coconut mango mochi dessert.
The French restaurant is highly acclaimed, holding a Michelin star. Although we didn’t eat there, the Cornish wild turbot and Scottish langoustine menu sounded very tempting.
The next morning we enjoyed breakfast in the Rotunda Lounge. As its name suggests, it’s round, with a beautiful domed ceiling and eight panels running around it depicting the natural elements. The dome is reminiscent of St Paul’s Cathedral, and the atmosphere is wonderfully calming, with a grand piano in the centre to accompany afternoon tea. Breakfast was superb, formal and elegant, with staff immaculately turned out and so friendly and polite. Then, with a full English breakfast and avocado and poached eggs filling us up nicely, it was time for a quick trip to the spa.
The spa was, quite simply, one of the best I’ve visited. Hiding behind a gold reception desk, the staff once again greeted us by name and showed us to the beautifully lit pool. The water sparkled and reflected off grey walls and silver mosaic tiles – such a calming space – and then we were led to the wellness pool with hydrotherapy treats. Perfect for a lazy relax or a honeymoon couple, the spa has treatment rooms and boasts a variety of signature sensory experiences.
Weddings at Ten Trinity Square London
The wedding facilities are just delightful. The UN Ballroom features traditional walnut panelled walls, Corinthian columns and sparkling chandeliers with views out over the gardens, and London, a perfect blend of romantic tradition and sleek contemporary style. Accommodating 150 for a dinner reception and 200 for drinks, this is a fabulous luxury spot.
The circular Merchants Hall is filled with natural light and seats a smaller reception at 70. You can also combine the spaces for a wonderfully extravagant celebration.
Wedding photos would be gorgeous among the greenery of the Trinity Square Gardens or even with a backdrop of Tower Bridge. The hotel is perfectly situated for a classic London wedding.
We had an incredible time at Ten Trinity Square London. The atmosphere is sublime, the staff are so lovely, and the views out over London are breathtaking.
