WhatsApp Image 2020-01-26 at 09.27.09 (2)

If you are coming to London for an operation or medical treatment at the Cromwell Hospital you might need accommodation nearby. An apartment will give you the chance to recuperate in the tranquility of your own home and make your own meals and snacks. Many guests enjoy the independence and flexibility that an apartment offers when compared to a  hotel. We have a couple of very good options in the neighbourhood.

Point West

At Point West, just 5 minutes walk away, we offer a range of studios, one and two bedroom apartments available from three nights upwards. With 24 hour concierge they are a good option. WiFi and weekly cleaning are included. The building has lifts throughout so offers easy access to all the apartments. Car parking is available at a charge. All apartments have fully fitted kitchens and are furnished right down to the last teaspoon. Some even have their own balcony where you can relax and enjoy the London skyline. We work very closely with Point West. Please call us now with your dates.

Point West Balcony

If you are recovering from treatment or need your own peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle we can help. Guests always report how satisfied they’ve been to enjoy the calm and privacy provided by having their own apartment. If you are coming for a longer stay, we negotiate excellent discounts for extended stay guests. Please give us a call.

Point West Bedroom

Ashburn Gardens

There is also a luxury option. In nearby Ashburn Gardens we have some beautiful 5* period apartments. Stylishly appointed these flats are absolutely delightful. Again, there is a lift on-site and the property offers ramp access into the building. Some of the apartments in this property also have access to a balcony or terrace. You can choose from a selection of charming one and two bedroom apartments. Attention to detail is the name of the game at this property. Our guests return time and time again to Ashburn Gardens.

Gloucester Road

Both these properties are within a few minutes’ walk of all the facilities you might need for your stay. Supermarkets, including the quality Waitrose,  are just a couple of minutes’ walk away. There are plenty of coffee shops nearby too. Paul’s Patisserie is a particular favourite where you can enjoy coffee and delicious French pastries. Cosmopolitan restaurants abound nearby. Public transport is good in this area too. You can easily take the underground at Gloucester Road station. The area is well served by bus routes. And of course you could take a black cab or an Uber to get you to your destination.


Many of our guests ask us how far are these apartments from Harrods?! Well you’ll be pleased to know that it Harrods is just 4 minutes away by cab. Or 6 minutes by underground. If you prefer to walk then it’s just 20 minutes. In Harrods you will find a treasure trove of everything you can think of! The Food Hall is brilliant and this world famous department store excels in the “designer goods” arena. Harrods also has many restaurants under one roof offering a variety of cuisines. It is a great place to enjoy a typically English afternoon tea in a bone china cup!

The Museums

Also along the road are London’s main museums. If you fancy a leisurely stroll then in less than 10 minutes you will be at the trio of the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. All these museums have very nice coffee shops and restaurants and are a lovely places to wander and look. If you are bringing children to London, then they will enjoy all the “hands-on” exhibits on offer. The Museums are fascinating and great fun for children of all ages!

Magical Mystery Tour London…

WhatsApp Image 2019-12-28 at 11.52.48

“We’re going on a magical mystery tour” declared Angela Walker, Director of Crown Lawn Apartments. How exciting! To celebrate Christmas and the end of 2019, a hectic year for all, Angela kindly invited colleagues and friends to join her for a special day out in our amazing London.

Ashburn Gardens apartments
Luxury apartments in Ashburn Gardens

We made an early start.  Well early in terms of the time of day to drink champagne! and met at her lovely Ashburn Gardens serviced apartment residence in Gloucester Road for the first glass of the day…..

After chatting with colleagues for a while we boarded a very nice coach with two guys in attendance offering – you guessed it – more champagne!  The champagne was served, of course, in crystal flutes! A most civilised way to travel around London on a chilly December morning!

The Crown Lawn staff
Binh, Sorin and Angela of Crown Lawn
Jazz Pizza Express

Off we headed in the coach and after a couple of turns round the block in Soho arrived at the Jazz Pizza Express in Dean Street. And for someone who’s not used to the daytime “nightlife” of London it was a bit of a surprise! Going down the stairs to the Jazz Club was like entering another world. Fabulously lit in soft shades of blue and red it had a timeless feel. It was very easy to forget that it was barely mid-day! And equally easy to forget that we are nearing the end of 2019. NB: It seems like a venue to remember for a  discreet, low-lit lunchtime date…

A good lunchtime venue

Pizzas abound – obviously – it is Pizza Express after all! But the lighting alone makes this unlike any other Pizza Express I’ve ever visited. They’re usually too well lit and often not very relaxing. Our glasses were filled for the second time and the artist, Earl Okin, appeared.  He is a very old friend of our hostess Angela – her school teacher apparently!  So he proceeded to perform an hour of jazz numbers to chill to. Singing (both in English and Portuguese), he played the guitar and tinkled on the piano. What a lovely way to spend a Friday afternoon!

Ismail, Angela, Matthew, Alina and Sorin

The atmosphere, company, music and food created a very chilled vibe. I was lucky to sit with Stephen of Crown Lawn. I’ve spoken with him many, many times so it was good to finally meet him along with the one and only Sorin and the lovely Alina. And my colleague Nora from Citylife Apartments was a pleasure to be with.

The Royal Academy of Art
The Royal Academy of Art
The Royal Academy of Art

Suitably replete, we were dragooned back to the coach or should I call it the champagne charabanc? and headed off to Piccadilly. We parked outside the Royal Academy and headed in to the Lucien Freud exhibition.

It is a stunning exhibition of self-portraits – one can spend hours and hours browsing such intriguing artworks. With pieces from his early life, right through to old age, his advancing years and torment are plain to see in the raw expressions of his work.

His style evolved from quite simple line black and white line drawings to complex, works featuring layers of bold paint colour and using heavy texture for dimension and depth.

The Academy has many other sculptures, paintings and installations on display to the public – it is a great place to wander, observe and study the art. It is also an excellent venue for “people watching”…..

Inside The Royal Academy of Art

We were supplied with headsets which gave us the low down on each painting – highly recommended and very informative!  Time constraints prevented us spending more than 45 minutes there but I will be back. I loved it.

Fortnum & Masons

We didn’t waste any time in walking to the next venue – just along the road to Fortnum & Masons in Piccadilly. No tour of London is complete without a visit to this temple of culinary treats. As you can imagine, on a late Friday afternoon it was buzzing full of Christmas shoppers in a frenzied state of “retail euphoria”…..

Jars of honey for sale

Tasting was offered – including biscuits with sparkling strawberry jam. An amazing array of bottles, tins and jars of splendid food was on display. For examples honeys, jams, biscuits, chocolates to name but a few. It is one of London’s most beautiful stores and a perfect place to buy gifts.

The Burlington Arcade

So then the next stop on our whistle stop tour was the Burlington Arcade….. Just across the road and guarded by the unique Beadles in their uniforms and top hats.  The Arcade is a very fine example of Regency architecture in the heart of London. We meandered through the beautifully lit passageway viewing luxury after luxury in the charmingly decorated boutique shop windows. It is a pleasure at any time of the year but at Christmas it is particularly special.

Sparkles and spangles reflecting excited anticipation of Christmas ahead. The shop windows in the Arcade display exemplar after exemplar of the finest craftsmanship offered in London. For instance, handmade leather shoes and gloves are for sale in quaint little shops. Beautiful gold and silver jewellery abounds. Stylish clothing is tantalisingly draped on timeless mannequins. The Arcade boasts many small independent boutiques. Having opened in 1819 it is an enduring testament to London style.

The Milestone Hotel

Then we were back on the bus to our next destination. Again, duly served with more champagne en route! Enjoying the marvellous London Christmas lights we wended our way back to the superb Milestone Hotel for a very special afternoon tea. Beautifully illuminated and adorned with Christmas decorations, at the entrance we were greeted by a doorman in a top hat – in true British style. So the Milestone is a traditional English country house in the centre of London offering 5* luxury in every sense you can imagine. It is simply timeless elegance.

Afternoon tea at The Milestone Hotel

We were ushered to their Windsor Suite – a beautiful, wood panelled room where tea where we were served what must be one of the best afternoon teas available in London! With beautiful napkins, silver cutlery and bone china we were treated to a feast. Charming waiters attended to our every need.

Afternoon tea

Glasses of champagne abounded – yet again – and tea was served. Tea consisted of the most delicious sandwiches you could imagine and the most beautiful display of intricately prepared cakes. The ambience was enhanced by the sounds of Christmas music playing joyfully in the background.

In the Milestone Hotel, guest services are what it’s all about. It is comfortable and luxurious and has won many awards over the years. With such exquisite accommodation and superior service, this unique establishment is also a great place to stay. You can even bring your dog and they will take it for a walk! They have a sumptuously furnished library for guests and a couple of very nice bars.

Library at The Milestone Hotel

Exquisitely furnished in classic English style this luxury hotel is a fabulously discreet retreat for the rich and famous. It is a wonderful place to spend a quiet afternoon. Or you can sit in the library and enjoy tea with your friends. It is well situated for  strolling around London’s Hyde Park from it’s Kensington location.

Back into the coach “you’re not going home yet” said Angela and off we headed again – to see the Christmas lights.

Knightsbridge Oratory
Brompton Oratory
The Brompton Oratory
En route we popped in to the Brompton Oratory in Knightsbridge. This is the most atmospheric of venues, particularly around Christmas time being tranquil and gloomy in the darkness of the evening. And illuminated by the few candles flickering gently in the dim light, peace reigned throughout our brief stay.
The Christmas Lights
We concluded our trip with a lovely ride along Regent Street and Oxford Street to see the fabulous Christmas lights. And the lights in Regent Street are particularly superb this year – dazzling and beautiful. Those in London’s Haymarket are also stunning.

So it was a lovely way to round off the great day we had – thank you so much Angela – we had a blast!

Business traveller wellbeing


Business travel is not always good for you! A fascinating study by Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health demonstrated a strong correlation between frequency of travel and various health issues. They discovered that risks raised include weight gain, anxiety, depression, alcohol dependence and poor sleep. In turn, commercially, these factors can result in poor outcomes for employee productivity and performance in the corporate world. And over a long period of time these issues can add up to a chronic health risk for those travelling regularly.

In recent years, there has been a shift in the mindset of regular travellers. Increasing awareness of these risks is leading to the realisation that health and fitness needs to be a top priority.

These days, a hotel or apartment residence’s workout facilities can influence a business travellers’ booking decision. As can consideration of what is “walkable” nearby. Unsurprisingly, it is estimated that 50% of business travellers now make time to exercise whilst away. And other top wellness concerns include unhealthy heating and lack of sleep, not to mention the stress of the actual travel itself.

Relax and unwind is the name of the game!

Responding to the demand

In response to growing consumer demand, the ever growing global wellness industry has started to sit up and take notice. Whilst the leisure detox vacation has long become a feature of modern luxury living, city hotels are beginning to respond to this particular demand. Even when welcoming short stay guests.

Wellbeing options including 24 hour gyms and in-room workout facilities are becoming commonplace in many urban locations.

But there is still a huge way to go…. With the focus being directed on four key areas – eating, exercising, breathing and sleeping.

Healthy travel trends

With regards to eating, healthy food options in hotel restaurants are more in demand, ideally fresh and organic. Some global hotel chains now offer minibars in rooms containing healthy options rather than the usual array of alcohol, crisps and salty snacks. And more inspired hotels (particularly in hot and humid destinations) provide rehydration sachets to address guests’ exhaustion after long flights. And offer ginger shots and supplements containing vitamin C and zinc to help combat the stress imposed on the immune system by long distance travel.

Healthy Meal

Increasingly, filters are being added to air-conditioning units to combat air pollution by removing harmful particles, pollen, dust mites etc. Air purifiers are being provided in guest rooms.

Other offerings include organic mattresses, yoga mats, antimicrobial countertops, circadian mood lighting, aromatherapy, and even vitamin C infused showers.

Apps are being evolved to provide tools for meditation and the management of jet-lag, sleep, nutrition and stress.

Working out

Hotel gyms are an area which is being given increasing amounts of attention. They often contain large equipment as seen in large commercial gyms when actually smaller multi gym type more flexible equipment would be preferable. It does not necessarily cost a fortune to kit out a small gym. Regular exercisers know how to work out and don’t always need masses of space or lots of equipment. It is generally true that business travellers are short of time so fitness programmes need to be time efficient and deliver results.

In many cases, residences with limited space partner with nearby fitness centres, gyms or yoga studios to offer guests some exercise options.

And by delivering these services to health conscious business travellers, regular visitors return time and again to properties where they know that their demands will be met. Brand loyalty and recognition of travellers’ needs certainly pay dividends over the long term for both travellers and the properties themselves.

Ashburn Gardens

London apartments with wellness options

A lovely indoor swimming pool is a good reason for business travellers to stay in the Town Hall in London’s Bethnal Green. Situated alongside a well equipped gym, you can take a morning swim in the pool before work. And the residence helpfully provides morning shuttle services into the City of London. An ideal combination!

Westminster beckons

Park Plaza County Hall has a fitness centre that is open 24/7. This hotel is very well situated for jogging along London’s Southbank where there is lots to see whilst exercising.

And the stunning Park Plaza Westminster Bridge boasts a lovely swimming pool. Guests can also enjoy a session in the sauna or steam room. And the gym is open 24/7. This fabulous property offers a range of accommodation;  simple hotel rooms to apartment suites with private kitchenettes. Located just 5 minutes walk from the Houses of Parliament.

Yoga at sunrise

There is so much to explore in London….. Once a month, on the overhead walkway on Tower Bridge, visitors can watch the sun come up over the River Thames whilst enjoying a yoga session….

Stratford – a sportsman’s paradise

If you are coming to London on a long business stay and have more time on your hands to actively participate in sport then the Stratford area is highly recommended. So with its velodrome, swimming pool and vast array of facilities it is the place to stay. Hockey, tennis, football to name but a few of the sports on offer.

Berkeley Square

Hyde Park

London’s Hyde Park is vast and covers an area of some 350 acres. So guests who simply enjoy jogging like to zig-zag across the many paths which criss cross through the magnificent gardens and trees. A simple way of keeping fit in central London.

Planning ahead

So when you plan your next business trip, take the time to think about which kind of facilities will be ideal for you. And set about finding them! You  may be surprised at what is out there!
