Great Northern Hotel and Ruby Violet launch ice cream room service in time for summer heat wave

Just in time for the latest heat wave and ahead of the National Ice Cream Month (July) Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross St Pancras  has launched a refreshing room service solution with an ice cream menu. Great Northern Hotel have created this naughty but nice service in collaboration with King’s Cross ice cream wizards, Ruby Violet.

The services will be available from now until September 2018 and to settle all guest cravings every guest floor of the hotel has a beautifully equipped Pantry from which guests can help themselves to home-based cakes, tea and Nespresso coffee, other sweet treats, and books, newspapers and magazines all on a complimentary basis.

Ruby Violet creates small batch, handmade ice creams, sorbets and frozen delights. Inspired by founder Julie’s grandmother, Ruby Violet blossomed from a lifelong love of the delectable and the unusual. Ruby Violet have created hundreds of flavours, from traditional classics to unusual delicacies, but whatever the flavour, they always use only organic milk and the most simple or unusual fresh ingredients.

Three tempting flavours will be available at Great Northern Hotel to order in-room; salted caramel & nut brittle, violet chocolate chip and Elderflower & Prosecco sorbet.

Close to King’s Cross station and just 25 metres from the Eurostar terminus at St Pancras International, the hotel is a carefully crafted celebration of original Italianate Victorian architecture with a hint of modernity and sense of timeless elegance.  Befitting the hotel’s rich architectural heritage, the guest bedrooms are beautifully designed to exude elegance and grace. Free from unnecessary clutter, the rooms are expertly proportioned, with lofty high ceilings and an abundance of natural light from large “six-over-six” sash windows. The hotel is also home to one of London’s finest destination restaurants, Plum + Spilt Milk. Celebrating high quality, seasonal produce through its modern British dishes, the restaurant has won several coveted international awards. On the ground floor sits GNH Bar, one of the most glamorous bars in London, with a stunning interior.
