OF KING’S CROSS ST PANCRASThe capital’s oldest railway hotel, the Great Northern Hotel, stands proudly in a Grade II listed
landmark building in the heart of King’s Cross, just a stone’s throw from the shopping and dining
destination, Coal Drops Yard.

Boasting 88 en-suite bedrooms, each is carefully designed to celebrate the architecture and heritage
of the building whilst meeting the needs of the modern traveller. Echoing the glamour of the railway
age, guests can choose from four different room categories. The ‘Couchette’ rooms pay homage to
the classic continental railway sleeper, whilst the ‘Edwardian’ bedrooms, found on the top floor
tucked into the eaves, feature-rich walnut panelling and shades of plum as a nod to the most
luxurious railway carriages of old. ‘Heritage’ rooms featuring bespoke leather and walnut furniture
and views across King’s Cross station through the bedroom’s tall sash widows, and the ‘Victorian’,
the largest room category, are spaciously bright, boasting high ceilings and custom-made furniture,
designed and handcrafted by Italian and British artisans, and a large bathroom featuring a stylish
standalone bath or double dual shower.
Located at the end of each corridor is a pantry, where guests can enjoy quintessential British treats
along with tea and coffee facilities.
Amenities in all bedrooms include complimentary Wi-Fi, USB ports and continental plugs for
travellers, complimentary mineral water, a Nespresso coffee machine and sustainable Cru coffee
capsules, in-room dining and an HD TV with Google Chromecast streaming facilities. All rooms benefit
from highly efficient soundproofing to ensure a restful night’s sleep, deeply comfortable Hypnos
beds, plush robes and slippers with bathrooms stocked with Malin + Goetz toiletries. Fitness
enthusiasts will also receive complimentary access to the local gym, with classes and facilities
including a pool, sauna and steam room.
GNH Bar and Terrace
At the hub of the hotel is the vibrant and buzzy GNH Bar. Sitting within and alongside both a national
and international transport interchange, as well as two of London’s iconic railway structures, its
the location provides the inspiration for a design that could be compared to the seminal railway bars of
the 19th century.
The decadent interior fuses Belle Epoque style with Art Deco design, with deeply upholstered leather
banquette seating, striking oversized chandeliers, and a central polished pewter island bar. A cut
glass mirror ceiling, inspired by French railway restaurants, is complemented by a bold black and
white chequerboard tiled floor. For a more secluded affair, there is a small private mezzanine lounge
overlooking the bar.
Enjoy classic and signature cocktails created by Bar Manager Diogo Felicio, a vast gin and tonic,
whisky and premium spirits menu, and craft beers alongside a refined wine and champagne list.
Seasonal, classic food menus include a choice of small plates and nibbles through to larger dishes
for lunch or dinner.

The Building
The building was originally designed in 1854 by King’s Cross station architect, Lewis Cubitt, and is
one of the world’s first great railway hotels, built in a revolutionary new age of steam. In 2013, The
Great Northern Hotel emerged from a fully comprehensive renovation which sensitively kept its
timeless townhouse elegance, from the grand exterior to the wide curving corridors, and its 88 chic
and modern rooms.
The Great Northern Hotel has an enviable location, backing onto the western concourse of King’s
Cross station, with many of London’s main tourist attractions within easy walking distance; the
British Museum (25 mins), Camden Market (30 mins) and The British Library (8 mins) to name a few.
