Great Northern Hotel, stands proudly in a Grade II listed landmark building in the heart of King’s Cross, just a stone’s throw from the shopping and dining destination, Coal Drops Yard. Boasting 88 en-suite bedrooms, each is carefully designed to celebrate the architecture and heritage of the building whilst meeting the needs of the modern traveller. Located at the end of each corridor is a pantry, where guests can enjoy quintessential British treats along with tea and coffee facilities.
At the hub of the hotel is the vibrant and buzzy GNH Bar. Sitting alongside a national and international transport interchange, as well as two of London’s iconic railway structures, its location provides the inspiration for a design that could be compared to the seminal railway bars of the 19th century.
RAILS Restaurant, an all-day dining destination, has been reimagined and the new menu, created by Executive Chef Stéphane Cerisier, features elevated yet accessible modern British dishes with French accents – made using only the finest seasonal ingredients, many locally sourced. Leading off RAILS restaurant, Little Bar is the perfect spot for pre- or post-dinner drinks with friends, as well as after-work sips and weekend catch-ups. The creative cocktails are French-inspired with a certain je ne sais quoi. The menu also features an extensive choice of wines, half of which are French, as well as aperitifs, digestifs and liqueurs, from classic French vermouths and pastis.
The Great Northern Hotel has an enviable location, backing onto the western concourse of King’s Cross station, with many of London’s main tourism attractions within easy walking distance; the British Museum (25 mins), Camden Market (30 mins) and The British Library (8 mins) to name a few.
