THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
Nothing says "city break" quite like a stopover at one of London's most exclusive addresses. With that in mind, we've teamed up with our friends at The Cadogan to offer you the chance to win a two-night stay for you and a friend to Belmond's retreat in the heart of Chelsea.
We're guessing your spring checklist includes a luxurious weekend getaway at a stylish property that offers ease of access to the capital's hottest locations and a sense of living it up away from all the normal daily stresses, right? Step in, The Cadogan, the Chelsea establishment where history meets high society. The London base of choice for well-heeled visitors since 1887, it packs high-spec elegance, soft luxury and a nod to its illustrious past behind its elegant west London walls. It's basically London's spirit, made material.
Equidistant between Sloane Street and Knightsbridge tube stations, the hotel offers guests a sense of being given the keys to their own private residence (access to a private garden included). You and your friend will be bedding down in a bedroom designed in a palette of pale greys, with subtle nods to the hotel's heady heritage. Parquet floors, 100-year-old paintings and Oscar Wilde's former crash pad, room 118, sit comfortably beside 21st-century opulence - case in point, the specially commissioned artwork made from 25,000 Swarovski crystals in the lobby.
Unwind after your day and select a book from the in-room libraries, curated by local bookseller John Sandoe, then settle in for a three-course dinner for two at The LaLee, the whimsical new café-restaurant inspired by the hotel's former socialite resident Lillie Langtry. This is the place to savour grand European bistro classics of lobster and frites, flat iron steak and rack of lamb with sauce vierge - all on the house, of course.
And the best bit? You don't need to rush. The prize is valid until 31 December 2022, giving you plenty of time to plan your perfect Chelsea escape.
