The spa sits inside The Chilworth, a London-based townhouse, right by Paddington. It’s easy to find (praise be for my non-map-savvy mind), and is seriously inviting once you spot it. I’m talking red carpet. Inside, the hotel is a treat – think vintage feel, peppered with modernity. I was taken straight to the spa – a small hideaway on the hotel’s lower level – and shown to the important stuff: my fluffy robe and slippers.
It’s official – a visit to the spa is how everyone should start their 2019
It’s January. The cheese is gone, the bubbles are drank, and what remains is a new year attitude to be a better version of the year previous. My advice? Sack off the pressure, and head for a spa day. Here, when sat amidst another kind of bubbles (the jacuzzi kind), you’ll be forced to sit back and think about good stuff. Like travel plans for the new year, or what will feature on the afternoon tea menu. I headed to the – aptly named – Chilworth Spa at Paddington Hotel to do just that.
