About the award
Introduced in 1992, this award is the AA’s ultimate accolade for hotels in the UK. It is awarded to hotels that are recognised as being outstanding examples in their particular market. From the small family-run hotel to the most ambitious commercial ventures, hotels of every size and style are potential winners.
Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square
Located in the heart of the City, this hotel has recently completed a seven-year refurbishment programme to transform it into the newest 5-star hotel on the London scene. The quality here is excellent – all of the bedrooms have the most up-to-date furnishings, technology and high levels of comfort. The majority of suites are all located on the ground floor and benefit from the hotel’s original features. The dome in the Rotunda bar (see image) has been completely restored and the white walls are moulded with motifs representing earth, water, fire and air, and circles.
The Spa is an excellent new asset to the hotel and the main reception, which took over eight months to be completed, features a gold leaf-backed double mosaic wall. Add to this a partnership with Anne-Sophie, one of the world’s most decorated chefs, and her La Dame de Pic restaurant, plus also Mei Ume, which follows the culinary traditions of Japan and China. All-in-all an excellent hotel, with so much detail and no expense spared. In short, nothing comes close in London at this moment in time.
