Win…Perrier Jouet Champagne and Dim Sum at the Grosvenor Hotel!

London is ablaze with Jubilee and Olympic fever this Summer, with bunting and street parties and celebrations everywhere you look.

We adore the London spirit…however, we love our home town all year round, and don’t think we should limit the celebrations to just a few weekends here and there!

So…we have partnered with the fabulous Guoman Hotel group, who have gorgeous luxury hotels all over the capital, to give you the chance to win one of the best prizes in TLLWTL history – and the best bit is you get to share it with up to five people too.

This prize is fantastic. You and your friends will have a reserved table at Reunion, the beautiful bar of the Grosvenor Hotel. After a serving of Perrier Jouet NV Brut and a bottle of Perrier Jouet Blason Rose, the winners will be served a selection of the Grand Imperial restaurant’s Dim Sum and bar nibbles, and finally a bottle of Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque, which can either be enjoyed in Reunion or taken home as a prize. The bottle of Belle Epoque is worth £250, and the total value of the prize £500.

It really doesn’t get much better than that.

So…whether you wish to visit Guoman Hotels to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, a great day at work, your fabulous friends or simply the fact you get to drink gorgeous champagne in this wonderful city, here’s your chance…

It really is easy. Just comment in the box at the bottom of this page with a fact about Guoman Hotels, The Grosvenor Hotel itself or Perrier Jouet Champagne. There is a wealth of information to be found on their websites, so we look forward to learning some interesting things!

  • Champers fact:Perrier-Jouet is one of the three bottles of the world’s oldest champagne, a Perrier-Jouët (vintage 1825) was opened and tasted in 2009. 
    That’s old. Let’s assume it tasted gorgeous. 

  • Construction of the Grosvenor hotel began on the 13th April 1860 and it formally opened for business  2 years and 1 day later on the 14th April 1862.

    Although critics bemoaned the lack of a billiard room, the Grosvenor was widely recognised as having one of the best smoking rooms ever seen at the time.

    The Grosvenor was the first London hotel to feature ascending rooms (lifts to you and I).

    Known as the Thistle Victoria for a period of time, the hotel was recently retook its original name, The Grosvenor.

  • Here’s an interesting fact about the Grand Imperial – it serves popping Boba cocktails.Apparently it’s the latest quirky craze from Taiwan, boba tapioca. Translucent pearls filled with natural fruity flavoured juices which ‘pop’ in your mouth, and create an incredible explosion on the tongue!

  • Did you know… Perrier-Jouet are behind the worlds most expensive Champagne EVER… Each super-rich buyer had to travel to Epernay in eastern France for a one-on-one meeting with the Perrier-Jouet cellar master, adding a unique ‘liqueur’ to personalise their bottles. 

    The limited edition 12-bottle box sets of Perrier-Jouet champagne were be priced at 50,000 euros each. 

    À la tienne!!

  • A quirky take on childhood memories – the Reunion Bar had a  ‘Ye Olde English Sweet Shoppe’ themed cocktail menu.  (There’s an idea for the local corner shop – it’d be pretty popular!) 

    A grown up ‘Rhubarb and Custard’ cocktail sounds very tempting, and being served in the Reunion Bar which was formerly the VIP lounge for first class rail passengers frequented by Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, would be one to remember!

  • The Grosvenor Hotel Fact – in 1928, the English aviatrix, adventurer and racehorse trainer, Beryl Markham (mistress to Henry, Duke of Gloucester and son of King George V) gave birth to a son in one of the hotel’s luxurious suites.

    Perrier Jouet Fact – Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier, a native of Epernay, established the Perrier Jouët House in 1811. Perrier was a common name at the time and so in order to make the House distinctive, he added his wife’s maiden name, Jouet, to the title.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a fab prize.
