When it opened in 1998, One Aldwych blew away the competition. It offered superb facilities, amenities and was strictly environmentally friendly – before the issue was even being really addressed in the hospitality industry. After a change in owner, management and full refurbishment, the hotel was relaunched in 2019 and the result is spectacular. Sitting on the Strand, at one end of Waterloo Bridge – the building dates to 1910 and was home to the Morning Post newspaper. It now hosts 86 bedrooms and 16 suites.

There is the superb Eneko Basque Kitchen & Bar from the three Michelin-starred Spanish restaurateur Eneko Atxa, Indigo - that serves contemporary British cuisine, the wonderful Lobby Bar - the home of all-day dining and cocktails and the Library – a private lounge and bar. The Spa has three treatment rooms and a sizeable health club. The 18-metre chlorine-free swimming pool is magnificent, and music is piped through speakers underwater. One Aldwych displays an impressive art collection – the highlight being Justine Smith’s two pop-art paper mâché dogs.
