The Kingsley, Thistle Hotel on Halloween

The Kingsley, Thistle Hotel is beautiful and grand.

Being the true interiors blogger that I am, I couldn’t resist taking photos of the most awe inspiring chandeliers. From top to bottom, the hotel was modern but in keeping to its true character. I personally loved the staircase and thought it would be picture perfect for a bridal photoshoot… I think I have wedding on my mind, be it that mine is coming up at the end of the month and all!

Anyway, the Thistle Hotel truly is a gem within London. See for yourself…

As you can see the hotel is much bigger than it looks from the outside. It has 129 rooms and the room that I saw was HUGE and it was their average. Luckily, due to their London location they have a range of room shapes and sizes to suit the needs of their visitors. I was told they see a variety of visitors as well, from business people during the week to families and tourists on the weekends. Can you tell I was impressed?

#ThistleHalloween Event

As I was invited by Joe Blogs to come and visit the hotel on Halloween, the hotel and the network were able to truly set up a wonderful blogger meetup. I partnered up with the wonderful All About Tink and we had loads of fun painting each other’s faces.

From spooky food and pumpkin carvings to airy music in the background, the hotel was able to accommodate all of the Halloween needs 😉
