With the grown-up pleasures of Berners Tavern, the Punch Room bar and Basement nightclub to hand at this super-slick London hotel, you might ask why on earth you'd want the kids in tow. But that would be to underestimate the five-star fun they can have.

For starters, you'll be checked into an extra-spacious loft suite with a complimentary connecting room, so there's no sitting on the bed in silence as you wait for tired eyes to drop shut.

Of course, getting them into bed is much easier when it's a tent in the shape of a Tube station with its very own tunnel to crawl through! (They do get a proper bed, too, but we're guessing the tent will win every time.)


Then there are the extra treats waiting for you all: warm milk and freshly baked cookies for them, juices and posh crisps for you.

The rooms are sumptuous, and the hotel is full of unusual artworks and oddities to keep little minds occupied while you relax after a day exploring the buzzing capital.

WOW FACTOR The Cereal Killer cocktail at Berners Street Tavern - it's made with Coco Pops chocolate milk.
