Family-Friendly London: Fabulous Nannies at London’s Athenaeum Hotel

September 2, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Athenaeum HotelLeave it to one of the world's best "family-friendly" hotels to track down the top nannies in Britain to come take care of young guests at the hotel. After a nation-wide search, three "real-life Mary Poppins-like ladies" were chosen by the Athenaeum Hotel's selective interview panel consisting of Serena Zandegu, the hotel’s Kids Concierge; six-year-old Alexander Clement-Davies; 10-year old Honor Robson; and actress Lynda Bellingham, star of Calendar Girls and All Creatures Great and Small. These "Fabulous Nannies"-- Deborah Walker, Angela Elis Webster and Anthea Lindsey-- had to answer questions like "What's your favorite bug?" and "What would you put in a magic garden?"

Available until September 30, 2010: A Family-Fun Package, which offers up to three hours of complimentary nanny services for guests. Room rates are guaranteed in dollars, beginning at $450 for a Deluxe Room, $799 for a Suite, with a three-night minimum. A second room or suite of the same type is offered at a 50 percent discount. Also included: full English breakfasts for two and complimentary meals for children under 12; a picnic lunch for the family; complimentary transfer from any London airport; complimentary snacks and soft drinks from the mini bar; and complimentary Wi-Fi.
