From the spoiling spa with real gold-lined walls and 14-metre pool to its two-Michelin-starred restaurant La Dame de Pic, it’s easy to see why guests return again and again to Four Seasons Hotels at Ten Trinity Square. It’s the private residences that really steal the show, with some boasting private terraces with soaring views across Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. 

When I was asked down to stay in one of the three-bedroom residences, I jumped at the chance, bringing my tribe of five children and husband in tow. An interiors dream that puts a smile on both the adults and childrens faces, read on to find out why I can’t recommend this epic hotel enough…

The Location

Whether you’re visiting from afar and want somewhere central or you’re a hardened Londoner looking for a dreamy staycation, the Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square is handily located moments from the River Thames and its endless iconic landmarks. 

Home to 100 rooms and 34 private residences, Ten Trinity Square itself is a renowned London landmark, residing next to the City.

First populated by the Romans 2,000 years ago, it sat as a place where ships would come and go easily on the tidal flow of the Thames. It reopened in 2017 following an extensive restoration and has firmly become one of the capital’s most sought-after hotels thanks to its proximity to the city’s attractions. 

Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square’s USP

With some much on offer, from the roomy residences to the fine-dining offerings and prime central location, it’s hard to pinpoint just one USP for this Four Seasons hotel. But if we had to pinpoint one, it would probably be its spa. 

Perfect for those looking for some much-needed R&R, it’s a hidden oasis adorned with real gold walls and constructed to keep the historical elements of the property alive. 

Located within is a labyrinth of rooms and possibilities. You’ll soon uncover a 14-metre swimming pool, separate vitality pool, fitness studio and state-of-the-art gym, a hammam (pictured above), sauna, steam room and seven beautifully designed treatment rooms. If you are opting for a treatment – I highly recommend it if you can tear yourself away from your private residence – you’ll enjoy bespoke treatments by Voya and unmissable facials by Dr Burgener. 

I managed to sneak away and leave my children and husband upstairs for a short period, soaking up the facilities and felt myself fall into a state of full relaxation.

There are also family-friendly swim sessions at select times throughout the day, meaning I could bring the children down for a splash and a swim too.

The Residences 

The hotel features 34 – soon to be 35 – luxury Residences for guests opting for longer stays or those travelling in groups. The residences range from one to four bedrooms and are reflect the hotel’s signature regal-inspired interior design, featuring stone, marble and herringbone timber flooring. 

We settled in for an evening in one of the three-bedroom residences, which sleeps up to seven adults or two adults and five children, the perfect roomy size for my family. We had everything we could have needed, including a master bedroom with ample closet space, three full marble bathrooms and a spacious living dining room and a fully equipped kitchen – this really felt like a home-away-from-home experience levelled up. 

Speaking as a parent of five, I can attest to the Residences being a veritable sanctuary for families seeking space and comfort in the heart of London. It’s the ideal retreat where children can frolic freely while taking in breathtaking views of the city. The team made the stay extra special for the children, with a cosy Cinderella-esque tent perfect for childrens’ imagination to run wild and the perfect spot for curl up in.

Food & Drink

Another big pull for this Four Seasons hotel is its established food and drink scene. There are three brilliant restaurants located within, including the ever-popular La Dame de Pic. Boasting two-Michelin stars, it’s led by chef Anne-Sophie Pic and takes guests on a journey through French elegance. Meanwhile, Mei Ume offers modern Asian cuisine and the Rotunda Bar & Lounge serves up stunning art-deco interiors and a perfect spot for a nightcap. 

With the children nodding off in their rooms, we opted for room service to sample some of the five-star service in the comfort of our privacy. We both enjoyed a rib-eye, both cooked to perfection and paired with a rich béarnaise sauce. We ordered extra sides of French fries and butter-glazed seasonal vegetables and washed it down with a robust, rich bottle of Chateau Petit Village Le Jardin de Petit Village Pomerol 2019.

We finished it off with a delightful matcha ice cream paired with a refreshing strawberry bellini – the perfect start to our weekend escapade.

Anyone who has ever travelled with children will know just how difficult it is to rush down to breakfast in time. So we again opted for room service, to keep everyone happy and we weren’t disappointed, enjoying platters of fruit, freshly squeezed juices and all of the usual continental delights.

The Verdict

What truly sets the Four Seasons at Ten Trinity Square apart is its unparalleled level of service and tailored special touches. Every ounce of our stay was perfect, from the moment we walked through the charming lobby to the personalised touches for the children in our accommodation.

Despite being set in the beating heart of the city, it provides a little sanctuary away from it all. Whether you’re after a sensational spa experience or looking for somewhere for a longer stay, you won’t find anywhere else quite like it.
