London’s hotels might be four-star from afar, but most only have two in the kitchen

Oh dear London, our city’s not doing well, is it? Just a couple of weeks ago we were telling you that the capital contains six of the ten worst boroughs for food hygiene in the UK and now we’re ranking again. Which? has revealed that almost 60 London hotels (and more than 550 nationwide) received two stars or less from the Food Standards Agency. The rating scheme marks venues out of five, with two stars being less than satisfactory, one star for diners with stomachs of steel and no-star venues – well, you’d best be by a toilet or a hospital.

Places in Which?’s study include four-star hotels Radisson Blu Edwardian in Covent Garden and the Royal Lancaster (pictured) near Hyde Park, which both cost £200+ a night and received two stars each for food hygiene. Other venues with either one or two stars include Euston’s Thistle Hotel, the Premier Inn in Edgware and The Britannia in Hampstead. Thank the heavens we already live here.
