Treat yourself to the ‘Chocolate Dream’ package at the Kensington Hotel
Chocolate Week may have officially passed, but here at The Sloaney, we certainly don’t need just seven days to indulge in some delicious treats. In fact, it goes without saying, that we love chocolate everyday of the year!
So, if you fancy spoiling yourself this month, The Kensington Hotel is offering the ‘Chocolate Dream Package’. This plush retreat is popular with Irish visitors and some of The Sloaney team dined next to X Factor judge, Louis Walsh, during a recent stopover.
Located in the upmarket area of South Kensington, the hotel and has an opulent, yet cosy décor. Roaring fires welcome guests on arrival and you can relax on a cosy sofa of your choice in the lobby. Whether you choose to enjoy a cocktail in the bar on your arrival, or prefer to go straight for dinner in the restaurant, both areas are chic and welcoming.
If your taste buds are partial to sweetness, you will love the chocolate inspired three course dinner that is part of this luxurious package. The starter presents guests with Pressed Foie Gras and Chicken Leg Terrine with Chocolate Brioche and “Mole” Chocolate Sauce. A White Chocolate and Chilli Granite follows to help freshen your palette, before a main course serving of Roast Loin of Balmoral Venison, Fondant Potato, Glazed Pear and Cacao Nibs. Finally, the Warm Chocolate Fondant is a mouth-watering desert and this is presented with Raspberries and Vanilla Ice Cream.
Each course is prepared to ensure that the added taste of chocolate complements the other ingredients. A subtle approach is taken, which is perfect for those who don’t want to be overpowered by the rich flavour.
If you want to treat yourself (and your taste buds) to a luxury city break with this chocolate twist, The Kensington Hotel boasts a discreet but opulent townhouse feel and won’t disappoint, from cocktail to turndown.
The ‘Chocolate Dream Package’ is available from £290 +VAT for two people on B&B basis. For more information, or to book, please visit www.doylecollection.com/kensington
