The hotel is modern and sexy, with wood and black metal decor that gives it a cool industrial feel.
We were able to check in at 3pm and were given keys to the King Junior Suite which was absolutely amazing.
When I opened the door to our room, I was amazed at how large the room was, as it was equipped with a living room, a bedroom, and two bathrooms.
My first port of call was to collapse onto the king sized bed which felt like I can only imagine falling into a cloud.
The bedroom walls were lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, and there was a long desk that worked perfectly as a dresser and desk.
After settling in, we changed into our swimsuits and headed downstairs to the hotel’s pool, gym and spa for an early evening dip.
After a dip in the long, relaxing pool, I parked myself in the jacuzzi for some relaxing time – the perfect way to unwind on a Saturday.
The atmosphere at the pool was absolutely calming and relaxing and I would definitely recommend making time for it if you visit the Hilton.
Although I did not use the gym during my stay, there was a window extending from the pool to the gym and it was stocked with a wide range of equipment so gym-goers could get everything they needed.
For dinner, we headed to London Bridge, which was only a ten-minute walk away, and then strolled along the Thames before dark.
The next morning, we opted to sleep in and skip breakfast because our suite was so comfortable we couldn’t bring ourselves to leave earlier.
Instead, we enjoyed coffee in our room and waited for the brunch we had booked for 12:30pm that day.
I’m so glad we waited for brunch because when I tell you this was an endless brunch of champions I’m not exaggerating.
This was a four course brunch with endless prosecco and it was delicious from start to finish.
The first course is for beginners – yes, beginners is plural.
Hilton London Bankside has placed a selection of canapés on a table in the buffet-style restaurant so diners can continue to help themselves throughout lunch.
To name a few, there was a range of salads, meat, cheese, fish, bread and vegetarian options.
In addition to this feast, the hotel’s wonderful kitchen staff prepares egg dishes, pancakes and waffles upon request.
Egg dishes available include omelettes, eggs Florentine, eggs Benedict and eggs royale.
I personally chose to have an omelette with chili, peppers and cheese which was rich and fresh and was very hot as it was cooked to order.
These dishes are also unlimited – diners can enjoy as many as they want throughout the course of brunch.
While I wanted to enjoy a sweet option, I was making room for the rest of my brunch.
However, for those who opted for pancakes or pancakes, there were a variety of sauces and toppings to choose from to create their own meal.
After the omelet, I felt ready to tackle the third course: the roast dinner.
I chose the roast chicken option and my friend went for the roast beef, but there was also a vegetarian option for anyone who wanted that.
My chicken was full of flavor and cooked to perfection, along with a huge Yorkshire pudding and the crispiest, most tender roast potatoes I’ve ever had.
To share among us, the waiters also brought out a plate of broccoli, carrots and parsnips.
They even came over to offer us more broth while we ate, to make sure our barbecue was perfect.
This meal itself was a dream and I can definitely say that I will be back just for the roast dinner if nothing else.
And if all that wasn’t enough, there was a huge table full of beautiful and colorful desserts.
There were mini brulees, mini cheesecakes, cookies, chocolate truffles, brownies – the list goes on.
Instead of choosing just one, we gathered a plate of desserts and shared them, trying as many of them as we could.
The raspberry cheesecake was my favorite, but the mango and white chocolate was a close second.
There is the option to enjoy a brunch without champagne for £38, but for £55 customers can enjoy endless prosecco alongside their endless feast.
The staff are very attentive, they constantly picked up our glasses and made sure we never had an empty glass.
In addition to the dining tables, there was also a fun Bellini bar where you could customize your prosecco with various juices and fruits.
I was hesitant to leave the Hilton London Bankside after such an unreal stay.
The hotel is truly a hidden gem in London and I can’t wait to return soon.
The bottomless brunch here is the best I’ve ever had, and I will undoubtedly be taking all my friends the next time we’re planning a festive brunch.
