Staying in London with your children provides you with an incredible choice of places to visit, activities and fun pastimes.  If you fancy something different why not consider getting out of London to explore the beautiful English countryside.  Using well situated and centrally located service accommodation in London puts you near main artery roads and railway stations which can help you escape the city at a whim.

Here are just five options for making memories on family day trips from London.

Warner Bros Studio Tour London

This is paradise for Harry Potter and JK Rowling fans and is located just north of Watford about 30 – 45 minutes by train depending on where you are in London.

It’s where the massively popular Harry Potter films were made, so it is now home to an unmissable exhibition. See the film sets for yourself and learn some of the special effects secrets. Explore the Hogwarts Express steam train, from Platform 9¾.

Set adjacent to the working film studios where all eight Harry Potter films were made, the Studio Tour offers visitors the unique opportunity to explore two soundstages and a backlot filled with original sets, animatronic creatures and breathtaking special effects.

Whether you are a Gryffindor or Slytherin you will find loads of excitement at for every ‘house’ at the WB Studio Tour.

Brighton Beach

Make your way from urban London to this leafy Sussex seaside destination, and you will be following in the footsteps of hundreds of years’ worth of adventurous Londoners.   Located 1 hour by train from South London, the journey through the south downs is lovely and exciting.

Brighton is a truly colourful and lovely British seaside town, with fascinating architecture including the iconic Royal Pavilion. It has quirky shops around The Lanes and an interactive museum. For family days out from London, the beach is a great option in good weather. There is always something going on.

Brighton Palace Pier has been through the wars (literally) but at 1,722ft long and acknowledged as the finest pier ever built, we now offer traditional seaside balanced with the excitement and pace of the modern day. Find out here how history has helped us to become who we are today.

From live entertainment, to superhero days, firework displays and music festivals, we’ve got the lowdown on everything going on. Why not tie in an event with a visit to Brighton Pier for a weekend packed to the rafters with fun.

Arundel Castle, West Sussex

If you are feeling truly adventurous this trip is up to 2 hrs but on arrival for anyone unfamiliar with the Majesty of a true ‘Castle’ the trip is well worth it.

If you have explored London as a family and fancy another interesting slice of English heritage, then head out to clamber around this 1,000-year-old castle.

There are many steps – so sensible shoes are a must – but the views are worth it. You and your children could see costumed storytelling, falconry and archery demonstrations too, as well as joining in year-round special events at Arundel Castle.

Legoland Windsor

The global phenomenon that is Legoland!  Exported from Denmark, these simple building blocks and their theme park have touched almost everyone on earth.   Travel to Windsor is easy (It houses the Queen’s favourite castle!) it’s about 1-1.5 hrs from central London.

Kids across the world know the magic of Lego, but the whole family can have fun at this extensive and packed theme park. It includes 4D movies, 55 rides and attractions, lots for toddlers to do and of course an elaborate mini world made from Lego bricks. Older children will love the Lego Star Wars Miniland Model display.

Please make sure to keep your shoes on; as anyone who has ever stepped on lego with bare feet can understand!

Hampton Court: Magic Garden

Anyone planning excursions while staying in London should add Hampton Court to their list, as it is a truly splendid 16th century Tudor palace.   Only 1 hr by train outside central London.

King Henry VIII’s (“Two beheadings out of six wives is too many”) home outside London.   This palace provides a brilliant mix of the historic and combines it with modern entertainment in a fun and engaging manner.

For family fun days from London, it offers The Magic Garden, a wonderland of play equipment for kids.  There are smoke snorting dragon, high towers and thrilling slides. There is a great water feature too, so you may want to take a towel on your day out from London.

Kids can let their curiosity and imagination free, blow off some steam and make great memories during your London holiday or short break.

For more ideas and details, feel free to contact the team at Merino Hospitality. We make families welcome at our discrete and beautiful furnished serviced accommodation.

DiggerLand: Kent

For something completely different, why not take the family to Diggerland.   If you are looking for fun-filled, action-packed family day-out… you need look no further than DIGGERLAND.   Located in MEDWAY VALLEY Leisure Park just a short drive from London.  Diggerland have a selection of great  rides & drives for guests of all ages including: Spindizzy, Mini-Tractors, Groundshuttle and Dig-a-Round, as well as Go-Karts and Dodgems.  Diggerland Kent provides some spectacular views across the River Medway of Rochester and its historic, 11th century cathedral and the 12th century castle.   A great way to grab a ‘snap’ of this brilliant vista is to take it from 50 feet up in the Diggerland Skyshuttle… don’t forget your camera!

Where else in the world would you find such a rich source of literary heritage and inspiration, than on the streets of London?  Whether your tastes lean towards JK Rowling, Shakespeare or anything in-between; England’s capital city has sights and information to enable you to soak up a wide range of experiences.

You could pick out your favourite authors and concentrate on guided tour groups to explore their homes, work-places and muses. Or you could imagine yourself in the stories themselves, by visiting locations connected to these great characters; visit Baker Street to see the world of Sherlock Homes, “It’s elementary, dear Watson”

London literary pub crawls

National trust owned The George Inn, which dates to the 16th century and was once frequented by Shakespeare, and then Charles Dickens. It is just one of a wide range of drinking places connected to famous authors.

Nor surprisingly then, London offers organised, guide-led literary pub crawls. For those unfamiliar with the concept of a pub crawl, it’s a British leisure pastime to visit a few different drinking places, while enjoying a stroll between each one (not a literal crawl).

Self-guided tours

You can also enjoy self-guided tours of London to visit sights connected to both authors and the fictional characters they created.

For example, one of the more recent additions to this is a “Platform 9¾” sign and other literary props at Kings Cross Station, which creates the perfect photo opportunity for Harry Potter fans.

You could also choose to take a 2-3-hour self-guided literary tour around Hampstead and along Hampstead Heath.  This will allow you to explore another beautiful area of London and some great London green spaces as well as the properties formerly owned by such literary giants as A. A. Milne and Evelyn Waugh.

Literary London tours with a guide

Here are many guided tour options around London for those who love fiction or poetry – or both. They can take you on a weaving exploration of some of London’s most historic streets and alleyways, in search of landmarks associated with such well known authors as Samuel Pepys.

Or, you could take a Harry Potter Black Taxi Tour in London or a London Bus Tour dedicated to the boy wizard.

There are plenty of museums and other attractions in London for book-lovers too, including the fascinating Roald Dahl Museum and Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition.

Bloomsbury

This region of London deserves special mention as it is well known to many in literary circles.  Hours can be spent hunting blue plagues all over this lovely area of London.  A special treat for guests staying with Merino is the ‘doorstep’ access to some of world’s top literary figures.   You might be aware of the influential Bloomsbury Group, a group of English writers, artists, intellectuals and philosophers who met to discuss their work and beliefs in their private Bloomsbury homes. The group’s most famous members included individuals such as Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey. The 1920’s was a booming time for Bloomsbury, Virginia Woolf was publishing her most popular modernist novels, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell had extraordinary exhibitions and E. M. Forster wrote A Passage to India, one of England’s highest regarded novels on British imperialism in India. Another great author who lived in Bloomsbury was Charles Dickens, known and treasured all over the world with his remarkable work such as Oliver Twist, David Copperfield and The Pickwick Papers. He resided at 48 Doughty Street during the1830’s with his family, where he paid £80 rent a year. Today, the address is a museum, just across the street from the Merino offices, where the literary interested can step inside the home of this writer and social critic. In addition, other notable inhabitants of the neighbourhood include Mathama Gandhi, Charles Darwin, Bob Marley, Ricky Gervais and Charles Dickens.

 

The London Arts Scene

March 27th, 2018

London’s crown as the Arts capital of the world shows no sign of slipping.

Merino was fortunate over the winter to have a celebrity stay with us.  This maestro has been involved in music, ballet and even opera.   We felt it would be important and worthwhile  to have a look at London’s Arts scene.

Though funding for the Arts has been squeezed in recent times, the London powerhouses have risen to the challenge and continued to make the English capital a leading force across all genres. In fact London leads the way for all the UK Visual Arts sector, which as a whole accounts for 30% of the global art market.

The best of the past and contemporary Arts

Much in common with other aspects of this fascinating city, London has managed to mesh together its historical arts perspective, with achingly modern offerings too. While The Globe Theatre has painstakingly reproduced the original Shakespearean experience, if you prefer Contemporary Performance Art, The Tate Modern is where many pieces have their debut.

Music menu

London’s rich track record for nurturing music talent continues with its provision of over 17,000 music performances each year. It’s 300 plus high calibre venues include the enviably successful O2 arena.  With the festival season starting soon, the countryside around London soon becomes alive with music as well.

Out of the streets

Though it’s home to opera and ballet companies in demand worldwide, London has always found ways to make the arts accessible to the man and woman on the street too.  This includes some 250 arts festivals, many inspired by the Notting Hill Carnival which attracts near one million people a year. There are street performers throughout the capital year-round. However, Covent Garden in particular, is a hot bed of both quirky and high quality “impromptu” performances.

Cream of Comedy

If comedy is your thing and you haven’t been to London, then the joke is on you, as the city attracts top names to perform in its arenas. Some of the biggest names in entertainment also test their material in the city’s pubs and comedy clubs too.   Comedy nights and acts can be found in every area and region in London.   For those looking for something a bit more involved there are numerous plays that highlight the wonderful acerbic wit found on our wonderful island.

All the world’s a stage

No whistle stop tour of London’s prestigious Arts offering would be complete without mentioning the theatres clustered in to part of the city. The glamour of Broadway is echoed in London’s West End. Did you know, though Broadway has more seats than its UK counterpart, London’s West End attracts more theatre visitors?

After the final curtain?

There literally is tempting arts performance every night of the year in London, which means visitors will never been disappointed.
Whatever your taste or pleasure there something for everyone in the vibrant London Arts scene.

As part of our series showcasing the way in which London has influenced global fashion trends, we are putting the spotlight on two of the industry’s leading lights. We have chosen two female designers who each changed the way the world dressed; Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood.

 Mary Quant

Mary Quant was the quintessential fashion designer for the 1960s.  However, the way in which she put miniskirts into the mainstream, and placed so much emphasis on the youth market, proved to be hugely significant and is still influencing the fashion market today.

Though she is a renowned London fashion designer, Mary Quant was Welsh. In 1955, the art school graduate opened Bazaar, a boutique on the King’s Road in London with the express purpose of plugging a gap in clothes designed for young people.

There she set about challenging the staid and rather stuffy fashions of the 1940s and 50s, liberating women with bright colours and vibrant styles.  Mary Quant and her influence remains in the 14 streets around Carnaby Street where you can find independent boutiques and global fashion and beauty brands.

Such was the popularity of this new fashion style, Mary opened a second branch of Bazaar in Knightsbridge in 1963, then created the Ginger Group, to craft and distribute her clothing to a mass audience. She went on to  develop a line of popular cosmetics too, including a trend setting “paint box” of makeup.

Vivienne Westwood

This British Dame and queen of punk fashion continues to impact on trends and styles worldwide.

She started her fashion career designing clothes for the iconic British punk band The Sex Pistols in the 1970s. Her use of safety pins, spikes, tartan and even bondage gear shocked the establishment but inspired countless designers that appeared in her wake.

Vivienne Westwood also likes to poke fun at the English aristocracy and some of the iconic British fashion trends. So she combines the everyday with the outlandish.

From an early start opening four London clothes stores, Vivienne Westwood expanded throughout the world. Her clothes line has also given rise to businesses creating accessories such as belts and shoes; a line of jewellery; and handbags and purses.

Even now, Vivienne Westwood is considered a fashion designer who can shock and thrill the industry in equal measure.

Yet, even royalty love her striking designs. Princess Eugenie chose Westwood designed gowns for her pre-wedding dinner, the actually wedding ceremony and then her after-wedding party too.

London fabrics and fashions on display

For examples of clothing and other items crafted by Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood, take a trip to the V&A Museum, featured in our blog here.

Merino Hospitality does not use safety pins, spikes or neon colours in the interior designs of our London properties however; each property has been uniquely designed to provide a genuine feeling of ‘home’.

London’s impact on worldwide interior designs, is second to none.

This city has influenced countless millions of homes and businesses. Not just in recent years, but stretching back through time, to when the landed gentry first sought inspiration for their country estates and mews properties.
London’s status as the global capital of interior design can be best appreciated with a visit to the V&A – the world’s leading museum of art and design.

Vast and ever updated collections

The V&A (formerly called the Victoria & Albert Museum) houses collections of architectural, fashion and decorative significance spanning five thousand years. That’s 2.3 million objects in total, and of course the V&A also offers a packed calendar of temporary exhibits and shows too.
Not surprisingly, the V&A has been the source of inspiration for successful British designers since its inception in 1852. From a historical perspective, it can show you the origins of every interior design trend and influence there has ever been.

Influencing interior designs of the future

However, the V&A is far from being simply a “museum”. It also features items and materials showing contemporary design, drawing inspiration for its locality in London, but also stretching outward as far as Asia.
The V&A has a mission to promote excellence in design and manufacturing. This is one of the reasons it develops and distributes its own line of products too.
One of its recent offerings to the world of interior design was an endorsement for a range of paint colours. These were inspired by exhibits within its gracious halls and its own history. Each colours shade in the range has its own backstory. For example, the Reuben Red is a throwback to the rich colours of Victorian homes. It gets its name from the sculptor Reuben Townroe, who was based at the V&A in its early days, when it was called the South Kensington Museum.

What’s at the V&A in 2018?

Are you or your children fans of the delightful tales of Winnie the Pooh, by A.A. Milne? Until 8th April there is a multi-sensory and fun exhibition showing the influence and playfulness of this literary classic.
Until 17th June, you could explore “the romantic and remarkable age of ocean travel” with the museum’s Ocean Liners: Speed and Style exhibition.
Throughout 2018 (until Oct 21st) you can also explore a highly significant display entitled “Without Walls: Disability and Innovation in Building Design”.

**Special Note**

Opening on the 16th of June, Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up. This exhibition will present an extraordinary collection of personal artefacts and clothing belonging to the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Locked away for 50 years after her death, this collection has never before been exhibited outside Mexico.
These are just a few of the highlights from the V&A. We are as passionate about London and all it has to offer as we are about interior design and fashion. We love to help our guests enjoy their stay in London with our comprehensive ‘insider’ information.

Right across London on Thursday March 8th, there are activities and events planned to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

International Women’s Day is in fact a worldwide event, but nowhere is it celebrated with more pride than in London.

It’s believed the origins of the IWD lie in the 1908 protest walk by 15,000 women in New York City. They were demanding the right to vote, receive better pay and have shorter working hours. This became an annual occurrence and in 1910 led to a German woman called Clara Zetkin calling for an International Women’s Day.

In 1913, the event was assigned the permanent date of 8th March. Then in 2011, former US President Barack Obama took the idea another step forward. He declared March as Women’s History Month.

There are probably never been a more poignant milestone year from the Women’s rights movement in the UK than 2018.  This is partly because it marks the 100-year anniversary of the date British women won the right to vote.

This year’s International Women’s Day is also even more powerful due to recent events. There have been many headlines regarding the obstacles that women face to forge careers in some industries, including sexual harassment. This has led to the birth of the #MeToo movement, highlighting inequalities and abuse in the film, fashion, music, politics and art industries.

What to expect in London

At the time of going to press, there had already been marches and activities in London to mark the 100-year anniversary of the suffragette success and to highlight the #MeToo campaign.

To get information on what else is going on in London to mark International Women’s Day, use the hashtag #PressForProgress on social media.  Another way to learn more about this important day is at #IWD2018.

Highlights of a packed week include the Women of the World Festival, at the Southbank Centre, from Friday March 9th to Sunday March 11th.

You could mingle with authors, broadcasters and campaigners at the International Women’s Day Breakfast Morning at the WeWork Waterhouse Square, Holborn. That’s on Thursday March 8th starting at 8am and free of charge.

Merino Hospitality would be happy to help you to find other thought-provoking events and celebrations for International Women’s Day.

Incidentally, the friendly team at Merino are strong advocates of equality for women, we have a gender balanced workforce and we are also a living wage employer.

Milan, Paris and New York may have a different opinion, but for many designers and fashionista’s, London is the fashion capital of the world.

It is so important as a source of design inspiration and fashion retail, that it would be impossible to sum it up in one article.  So, let’s focus first on the glorious array of British fabrics that London has either created or lifted to iconic status.

This immense significance in the use of materials, is closely tied to British heritage.  We are not just talking about Mary Quant or Vivienne Westwood . London’s status in the fashion world is stitched together with its glory days of fabric manufacture. At one time, the nation’s cotton mills supplied the world, and cradled the birth of the Industrial Revolution.

 Wool

The fertile lands to the North of Britain support vast sheep farming enterprises, one of the reasons that Yorkshire Wool is used as the basis for many glorious fabrics, including many iconic pinstriped suits.  Wool is also the basis of the famous Prince of Wales check. It has been used to create some of the fashion designs that epitomise haute couture today.

Tweed

For some lovers of fine tailoring, there is nothing to compare with the feel and aesthetic appeal of Tweed. This closely woven woollen fabric can withstand many years of wear.  Usually produced in either a twill or herringbone pattern, it’s water resistance has made it popular for outerwear.

Cashmere

A far more luxurious British fabric, soft woollen cashmere is woven from goat’s hair and has been a feature of the fashion trade since the early 1800s. Far more insulating than sheep wool and beautifully tactile, cashmere is favoured for knitwear and high-end suits.

Gabardine and Corduroy

Both British fabrics have earned their place in history and modern fashion design, with their durability and quality.

Gabardine was invented in the 1870s by Thomas Burberry. If the name is familiar it’s because the fashion label he founded is now known worldwide.  Gabardine is worsted wool fibres that are woven together. Corduroy undergoes a similar process but uses twisted cotton or wool fibres to create its distinctive tufted effect. Highly warm and weather-resistant, corduroy is favoured for trousers and coats.

London for suits and fashion firsts

If you want a bespoke suit crafted by the master tailors there is only one Savile Row.  Many people travel thousands of miles to enjoy the fabrics and skills that only London provides. Many fashion-conscious men and women also come to London for inspiration and samples of the next season’s fabric designs.

If you want to be equally discerning in your choice of accommodation while in London, Merino serviced apartments have you covered. You may even spot some of the fabrics featured here, in our individually created, stunning interiors.

While it would be a travesty to visit London’s vast array of sights with your attention totally focused on your mobile device, smart phones have made life easier. Gone are the days when you would see harassed travellers from all corners of the globe huddled on street corners fighting to locate destinations on maps, and then battling to refold them.

Mobile apps can ensure you have an altogether more effortless stay in England’s capital city, without missing a thing. There are many to choose from, but here are five that you may want to download for London insights and help.

 Google Maps/Citymapper

Google Maps is universally used for navigating by foot or car, but visitors to London find Citymapper highly useful.  For example, it can help to simplify London’s sometimes overwhelming public transport system.  It can also help you to plan and measure your routes, including travel times, whether you use the Tube, taxi, rail, bus or your own two feet.  Citymapper’s multiple route suggestions even sometimes include a recommendation for the best way to stay dry when it rains.

Uber or Taxi App

For business and leisure visits to London, there are going to be times when you need a quick and reliable driver to get you to an appointment and next destination. Or, maybe to whisk you back to your beautiful serviced apartment in central London. There are many apps you could choose for this, including Uber which has some 15,000 drivers available in every part of the capital.

 National Trust

One of the primary reasons that millions of people chose to visit London and its bountiful surrounding countryside, is its architectural heritage and natural beauty. This makes the National Trust app a valuable addition to your phone.  It can guide you to many sites and sights, that show this part of England at its historical finest.  Everything from Tudor homes to breath-taking gardens. It will also keep you updated of What’s On in London’s National trust owned properties.

OpenTable

Here’s one that tends to be best known by Londoners themselves. OpenTable is a great way to find the best places to eat, drink and enjoy events. It also provides exclusive deals at local pubs and restaurants. It uses your location and preferences to suggest suitable options but also provides tips on some the emerging stars of the London hospitality scene.

Trail Tale – UK Explore, London Guided Walks

For the more adventurous among us, this app offers a chance to take several guided tours around London.  There is also the opportunity to ‘explore nearby’ so it can be used wherever and whenever you like.   This will satiate any city explorer with fascinating walking routes and handpicked hidden gems in London….all for free!

Post-mobile – the switch-off!

Making the most of London using the wonders of modern technology, is great. However, after a tiring day exploring and soaking up all its wonders, it’s lovely to shut your door and enjoy the comfort and traditional values of beautiful & private accommodation. At Merino, we would be “app-y” to ensure that your London stay is as relaxing and memorable as possible.

Have you ever noticed – even on the most exotic holiday – that having a few “home comforts” around you can make a holiday or business trip even more special?

Be honest, are you one of those people who packs tins of beans or a favourite pillow when you fly? Apparently, the most common must-have item to be found in luggage is teabags!

If this rings bells with you, then you are far from alone. One holiday company (Jet2Villas) did a survey that showed that on average, when the British depart for their holidays they take three home comforts in their suitcase.  In fact, 20% of those surveyed admitted to taking five familiar items whenever they leave home.

Places to stay to feel at home

There’s a lot to be said too, for accommodation that offers comforts and layouts that are luxurious but “homely”.

The main reason we seek out places to stay that are a home-from-home (or pack things from our everyday life) is that we want to be able to relax.

Trips to new or even familiar locations are not always about squeezing in as much stimulation, interest and excitement as possible. Many of these trips – holidays or business reasons – need an element of being able to unwind, especially for business travel.

After a long day of sightseeing or attending conferences and meetings, returning to accommodations that’s not too alien or overwhelming can be important to help you feel comfortable.

Finding pockets of calm in a home-from-home

What better time is there, to soak up some rest and relaxation, than on holiday, but for that to happen we need comforting surroundings.

Finding your niche or Zen spot in a hotel room is a bit more challenging as they are not always designed for people to linger in. However, if you are staying in a serviced apartment of a high standard, you can soak up the overall ambience and pick out your own “peace perch”.

It can be as simple as having a lovely armchair to sink into, to watch TV, read a book or play on a device; while surrounded by soothing interior design that make us feel like we can just “be ourselves”.

Cooking up holiday success

The same principle applies to eating while on holiday – particularly if you are travelling as a family. Things that are familiar and “reliable” are often a great source of reassurance.

People don’t always want to go out to fancy restaurants when they are on business or pleasure trips either.  “Too much of a good thing” can become wearisome or overwhelming. Instead, holidaymakers and those travelling for business can start to feel nostalgic for their own kitchen. After all, that’s where you are in control and can make dishes to your exact preferences.

Better still, with a well-equipped and easy to use kitchen in serviced accommodation, you can enjoy some cooking therapy in time and space we struggle to find in our normal routine.

Serviced Apartments vs Hotels

January 29th, 2018

So, what is it to be? Booking into a hotel, or an apartment or house for a short term let during your stay in London?

The choice largely hinges on type of experience you want during your stay – and how much space you want to enjoy. Do you want to “live” in the capital for a short time?

 A “home” not an impersonal room

When travelling to London (or any other capital city) for business or pleasure, you may want to soak up all the stimulation and fascination of a lively, cosmopolitan city. Your days and nights can be packed with new sights, sounds and experiences.

However, there is a good chance you won’t want hustle and bustle around the clock.

After an exhausting day sightseeing in London or attending meetings, some peace and quiet could well be just what’s needed.  This is not always possible in a hotel. Staying in even the most illustrious ones, brings a certain degree of being “surrounded” by other people.

Alternatively, if you select a well-positioned serviced apartment or mews house in London, you are in the heart of things while still enjoying valuable “me time” in comfort and quiet.

 Meal time magic

London hotels have great restaurants and you can of course order room service to dine alone.

However, in serviced apartments and mews houses, you can have the pleasure of preparing your own meal, to your exact preferences and timetable.  Or curl up with a takeaway of your choice. You can eat in lovely surroundings, undisturbed by other diners.

(By the way, Merino Hospitality can stock your stunning accommodation with groceries and even provides a private chef if you want to really live well during your stay in London.)

 Family comfort and care

Hotels can be particularly bewildering places for little ones if you take your family with you on holiday or a business trip to London. Plus, you are tied to some degree to the scheduling or the hotel, and you will be relying on the services of strangers. Also in hotels, privacy can be an issue or you could need multiple rooms depending on the age and gender of your kids.

Imagine instead, having your family stay in London in a highly personalised and self-contained apartment or mews house. Everything you need for an enjoyable stay is provided, but your family can enjoy quality time together with no “intrusion” from staff or other guests.

A chance to recharge your batteries and “reboot”

Just as at home we like to shut our front door and enjoy our own space, serviced accommodation carries with it a high degree of privacy and discretion. Forget “Do Not Disturb” signs, this would be your own, self-contained stunningly beautiful space. You can come and go as you please, and arrange weekly cleaning services to suit your own lifestyle and schedule (if you stay in a Merino apartment for longer than seven days)>

To explore more reasons why Merino Hospitality’s perfectly situated, and carefully designed accommodation helps you to “live the London dream”, contact us for a chat.
