Apex Temple Court in London – the perfect hotel for a romantic stay
Nestled in the bustling heart of London, luxury awaits you at Apex Temple Court. This hotel offered a perfect blend of modern luxury and historical charm, making it a memorable and delightful experience from start to finish.
The hotel’s prime location in the heart of London couldn’t be better. It’s just a stone’s throw away from iconic landmarks like St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Thames River, and Covent Garden. This central location made it easy to explore the city and return to a serene and elegant sanctuary.
Walking into the Apex Temple Court felt like stepping into a modern masterpiece housed within a historic building. The architecture and interior design were a harmonious blend of old-world elegance and contemporary sophistication. The lobby was particularly stunning, with beautiful chandeliers and a huge reception desk area.
From arrival, it was apparent the service at Apex Temple Court was impeccable. The staff were not only professional but also genuinely warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable as possible, and their attention to detail was impressive. We were kindly given arrival drinks which were sent to our room, as well as assistance with luggage. Due to currently being pregnant and not being able to drink, this wasn’t an issue as Apex Temple Court made a personalised delicious mocktail for me to enjoy, so I didn’t feel like I missed out!
The Temple Suite is one of a kind and takes luxury to a whole new level. The Temple Suite is the largest and most lavish room on offer, where you can enjoy 115 sqm of extra special touches. The Suite is larger than your average apartment with two grand bedrooms and an open plan living space and kitchen. You’ll find a stylish kitchen area and dining room in this chic Fleet Street space which is ideal for entertaining and hosting, plus a separate lounge area which sets the perfect scene for sipping on cocktails, and it doesn’t stop there. You can also enjoy two king-size beds fitted with luxuriously soft linen, a marble bathroom featuring a free-standing bathtub and underfloor heating plus Sky Sports and Sky Movies.
Included within the Temple Suite is a fully stocked mini-bar, which has lots of lovely vodkas, wines and everything you could ever need for your stay! Additionally, you can enjoy a full unpacking and packing service as well as a tasty in-room continental breakfast available on request.
It was made apparent that the little things really do matter in Apex. Be prepared to find your in-room favourites waiting for you to arrive from drinks to newspapers, magazines, and fresh flowers if you’d like. You get treated like royalty!
Another lovely addition is access to the Club Lounge when you stay in the Temple Suite. This means you can get complimentary drinks and canapes in a private lounge. You have access to this Lounge at any point during your stay. All you need to do is tap your room key on the door and you will gain entrance to your own private living room, with soft drinks, tea, coffee and alcoholic beverages.
I dined at the hotel’s restaurant, “The Chambers,” and the experience was extraordinary. The menu was diverse and catered to various culinary preferences. The food was not only delicious but beautifully presented.
I also had the pleasure of enjoying the in-room dining service. It was evident that the culinary team at Apex took great care in ensuring that the meal was not only delicious but visually appealing. The Club Sandwich was an absolute masterpiece. The bread was toasted to perfection, providing that ideal crunch without being overly crispy. The layers of chicken, lettuce and cheese were expertly balanced, creating a harmonious blend of flavours. The generous spread of mayonnaise added a creamy richness that tied everything together. The inclusion of the crispy fries was a wonderful touch. They were seasoned just right, and their texture was exactly what one hopes for in a good serving of fries.
The in-room dining staff’s attention to detail and dedication to service were evident. They provided all the necessary condiments and utensils, making the dining experience hassle-free. What’s more, the team checked back after the meal to ensure our satisfaction and promptly cleared away the dishes.
Whether you’re in the mood for a casual meal or a more elaborate dining experience, the hotel’s culinary team’s dedication to quality and the efficiency of their service will undoubtedly enhance your stay. The club sandwich alone is reason enough to indulge in this delightful offering during your visit!
For fitness enthusiasts, you have access to the fitness suite 24/7. Enjoy 24 access to their lifestyle fitness studio and state-of-the-art Technogym featuring treadmills, free weights, and resistance equipment.
The Chambers Bar is super stylish with its feature fireplace and oak-framed windows – the perfect backdrop for those looking to enjoy a drink in relaxing surroundings.
The two outdoor courtyards offer the perfect space to meet with friends, family, and colleagues – enjoy wining and dining al fresco, toasting to good times, or watching the biggest sporting events of the summer in the sun! Kitted out with blankets and heaters for the slightly colder months, soak up the historic Temple Court setting all year round.
Apex Temple Court exceeded my expectations in every way. It’s the kind of hotel that makes you look forward to returning at the end of a day of exploring London. Whether you’re in town for business or leisure, this hotel offers a perfect combination of comfort, luxury, and convenience. I can’t wait for my next stay at Apex Temple Court.
This hotel not only provides a luxurious experience but also offers a prime location, impeccable service, and a perfect balance between historic charm and modern comfort. It’s an oasis of tranquillity in the midst of London’s vibrant energy.
