The Athenæum is that rare London thing -- a family-run hotel one mile from busy Regent Street but just across the road from leafy Green Park. Plus, it's home to an award-winning afternoon tea, one of the Great Whisky Bars of the World, and a 'living wall'.

Condé Nast Traveller praises the "eye-popping decor and statement furniture", while The AA Hotel Guide, which awarded the hotel its top prize of five Red Stars, says "this well-loved hotel offers bedrooms appointed to the highest standard". Even the smallest rooms have Nespresso machines and free soft-drink mini bars, and many have views over the park.

Highly recommended is the Regent's Park Honey Tea in the Garden Room, with views of the 8-storey vertical garden that grows up the side of the building. The hotel was named the Top London Tea Place in 2012 by the Tea Guild -- the tea is themed around honey gathered from the bees of London's Royal Parks; try the honey champagne and honey-roasted ham sandwiches.

The intimate spa is another highlight, and the honey theme is continued here, with a manuka honey facial, and nectarine and honey-blossom salt scrub on the treatment list, as well as a number of Elemis and REN treatments.

Free bike rental, kites and blankets are available for guests to use in one of the three Royal Parks nearby. For families, there's a dedicated children's concierge, and team of nannies who will stock up on necessities and favourite items before you arrive.
