A wonderfully quirky little hotbed of history, mums will love the timber beams and slanting ceilings of this charming old hotel. Created from two Georgian houses, The Rookery occupies a uniquely peaceful location in the fashionable area of Clerkenwell. Come weekends the nearby City shuts down and becomes an undisturbed blend of history and modernity. Nearby Smithfield Market, the Rookery is quiet, unpompous, flagstoned and furnished with real antiques. It strikes just the right balance - refreshingly unelaborated without pandering to the minimalist tendencies that have taken hold of many hotels in the capital. The bathrooms, with their carefully sourced original fittings, are a treat - which lucky mother wouldn't adore sinking into a bubble-filled, steaming hot traditional roll-top bath? The whole place has the feel of an antiquated country house, offering a release from the city without actually leaving. The dazzling lights and sounds of the West End are just a short tube or bus journey away, while the Barbican Centre, St Paul's Cathedral and the Thames are but a short stroll away.
Whisk your mother away to this boldly lavish sanctuary of sophistication in the heart of London. The Langham's recent £80m refurbishment reasserts the brilliance of the capital's first grand hotel, and possibly its most stylish. An attractive, vibrant contemporary decor is present in all the rooms, which are kitted out with every modern convenience going while maintaining their Victorian splendour. A stunning 16-metre swimming pool and the splendid spa will see to any mother's needs after a tiring day shopping along the nearby Regent, Oxford and Bond Streets. Throw in a fully-equipped gym, a solarium, a separate female sauna and a beauty salon - and you open up a whole raft of indulgent treatment possibilities. Add to this the newly designed Landau restaurant and Artesian cocktail bar, plus the Palm Court's classy afternoon tea, and the Langham pretty much ticks all the boxes for lucky mums in search of some well-deserved down time.
A night at this appealing little Soho hotel, where no two rooms are the same, is quite the loving gesture and an exceptional Mother's Day treat. Championing traditional sophistication, Hazlitt's strikes a wonderfully English tone. Furnished with fine Georgian and Victorian furniture, every bedroom has been decorated individually, with meticulous attention to historical detail. Grand four-poster beds, scented candles and little cosmetic goodies all add to the wonderful ambience. Many of the hotel's 23 rooms are named after leading literary figures who stayed as guests of the 19th century writer William Hazlitt, who once lived in the building. Georgian panelling, cavernous fireplaces and gothic screens make this feel like stepping into the 18th century, though this is a past with internet access, air-conditioning and well-equipped bathrooms. With Theatreland just around the corner, lucky mothers can combine their stay in one of London's most historic hotels with a top West End performance, before knocking back a few cocktails in some of Soho's fashionable bars.
Sometimes mums just need a bit of five-star treatment and there is no better time to lavish luxuries on them than Mother's Day. Set on the Cromwell Road, in the hotel-rich Earls Court area, The Rockwell Hotel stands out from the many and varied types of accommodation on offer thanks to its boutique style and excellent customer service. Each room is individually and tastefully decorated in a way that mothers will just love. With room sizes ranging from small singles to suites, garden rooms with their own patios are particularly lovely if you want a real treat. The secluded, landscaped garden is a peaceful spot, ideal for an al fresco breakfast when the sun shines. Character features including original bay windows mingle with modern luxuries, such as bespoke oak furniture, merino wool blankets and strategic lighting that extends into the garden. The Rockwell has an intimate, homely feel to it - a wonderful haven of respite for busy mums.
Treat your mother to a night at this chic discreet Mayfair townhouse hotel, recently refurbished to create a timeless fusion between traditional style and modern flair. The Flemings Mayfair hotel, a Georgian property which dates back to 1730, is ideally located in a quiet street off Piccadilly - a stone's throw away from the delightful Green Park and the boutiques of Mayfair and a short walk to the West End. The multimillion pound revamp was masterminded by the renowned interior designer Grant White, who has eschewed the minimalist trend so prevalent in many London hotels, and instead concentrated on using deep jewel-like colours and rich textures to create, in his words, "an elegant luxurious cocoon". Flemings' indulgent Front Room offers cupcakes and champagne and a range of delicious savoury or sweet afternoon teas - perfect after a hard day's sightseeing or shopping.

- Mother's Day was officially invented in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe, an American pacifist and prominent abolitionist who was appalled by the horror of the American Civil War. The special day was originally intended to celebrate the peaceful, protective nature of mothers. The date was enshrined in American law by Congress in 1914.
