The Grange Hotel- St. Paul’s

On Saturday night I was lucky enough to be invited to a ball at the stunning five star Grange Hotel in St. Pauls.  The hotel is very modern in design with contemporary features throughout, which fits in perfectly in the surrounding area, despite being less than a few hundred yards from the beautiful St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The thing many of us commented on the most was how much effort everyone put in to the evening, with some of the dresses worn worthy of the red carpet! Which I thought was really lovely.

The staff were particularly attentive and friendly throughout the hotel, which made the evening run very smoothly. We were served unlimited drinks which included beer and wine until 10 o’clock which was plenty of time to get us all in high spirits!

We enjoyed a sit down dinner after our initial reception and being sat at our tables, which was served buffet style which would suit nearly all tastes. At first I was a bit apprehensive about the buffet, but it made a lot of sense rather than trying to serve more than 200 people at once and it certainly didn’t disappoint! There was a choice of four salads to start, with five or so different main courses and a chocolate brulee and fruit selection for dessert, which really was to die for!

I had a lot of fun at the evening as there was some good entertainment with one of the IBM employees singing and then another being a DJ towards the end; this is despite being dragged up to play ‘Take me out’ where I think the boy in question was shown the red card by most, by as early as the second round I believe, poor thing!

The Grange Hotel is a fantastic place to hold an event such as this or even for a special place to stay for a night to enjoy all that staying in the centre of London has to offer.

A little tip- make sure your cab driver knows where he’s going, my friend took a two hour detour in her cab back to woolwich which should’ve taken half an hour!
