Luxury hotels in the United Kingdom don’t come any more expensive than in London. In fact, the top three luxury accommodations are all located in the British capital according to a recent Luxury-Hotels.com survey. The average rate for a standard double room for the time period of June to August 2012 determined the rankings. As such, they reflect the minimum amount a guest has to spend to stay at each establishment.
Topping the list was the 45 Park Lane. This hotel’s location in London’s wealthy Mayfair district made it the most expensive at an average nightly rate of £545 for a standard double room. Running a close second was the Hyde Park Corner region’s The Lanbesborough, where rooms this summer are going for £524 per night. Rounding out the top three was the Bulgari Hotel & Residences in Knightsbridge, where an overnight stay is setting London visitors back an average of £499.
London dominated the Top 10 with only two hotels on the list, at positions 4 and 5, being located elsewhere in the UK. Those were the “Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons” in Oxford and the Glennapp Castle in Ballantrae, Scotland. Average rates of £465 and £415 respectively helped them round out the Top 5.
