Did you know that one of London's most exclusive areas also has its own waterfront oasis on offer? 
Yep - you heard it here first, Chelsea has its very own harbour! 
I was extremely lucky as Luxury Lifestyle Magazine offered me the opportunity to review the Chelsea Harbour Hotel. A large and spacious hotel with an enviable Thames-side location. Plus, it's the capital’s only five-star all-suite hotel and is tucked away within the idyllic Marina; definitely Chelsea’s well-kept secret.
Writing for Luxury Lifestyle Magazine means I have the opportunity to explore, travel, visit and stay at some fabulously luxurious restaurants and hotels. More importantly, this opportunity enables me to showcase my writing skills to a much larger audience and will gradually help me towards building up a portfolio of travel articles for high-profile clients. 
So whats the deal? The Chelsea Harbour Hotel is a luxury, five-star, all-suite hotel set in the exclusive Chelsea Harbour Marina within walking distance from the well-known Kings Road and only a stone’s throw away from Imperial Wharf station.
On arrival, it’s clear why this hotel would attract, neatly tucked away within its own tranquil waterfront location. As soon as arrive you are greeted by a grand lobby entrance, marbled floors and towering vases abundant with impressive flower displays. I imagine they house an impressive Christmas tree during the festive season.
Our Suite
At reception we were warmly greeted and informed that our suite had been upgraded to a Marina King Suite – this sure was music to my ears on arrival after a long-gruelling week at work!
The suite itself was very spacious with plenty of space for the two of us. The suite comprises of living quarters, bedroom, bathroom with separate shower and bath and a private balcony overlooking the Chelsea Marina. This was the show-stopper!
In a city where small, cramped rooms command high prices it really is a bonus to have this amount of space.
Dining Experience
We dined on the three-course menu (at a very reasonably priced £19.50), competitively priced for London. For each course there was a choice of three options.
For starters, I chose the Potato and black pudding fritters with poached quail egg and mixed leaves and my partner chose the Goat’s cheese tart with roasted vegetables and onion chutney. We both shared and picked a little bit at each others. Unfortunately, my starter was quite average, mainly due to the fact that my ‘poached quails egg’ was overcooked and I was counting on the runny yolk to complement the otherwise dry potato and black pudding fritters.
However, the goats cheese tart with onion chutney was more than palatable so I ended up eating most of this!
For mains, I chose the beef and ale pie with roasted root vegetables and my partner the herb crusted salmon fillet with white bean puree and chorizo. I liked the idea behind the presentation as it the components were styled in a “deconstructed” manner with all the elements layered separately on the plate. The beef was rich, bold and flavoursome.
After a rather rich main course I was keen for a lighter dessert that still boasted luxury flavours. I navigated towards the white chocolate and apricot mousse and my partner the chocolate and raspberry tart. The desserts were very well presented with plenty of attention to detail.
