Recent reviews

Superb 9.2 From 245 reviews

Very good 8.0
Perfect location
Perfect location with easy access to Green Park and St. James, without being on a major road. Good connections to public transport nearby. Service from check in to departure was very attentive and personalised. The rooms are small but comfortable. Sound proofing is an issue and could be a concern for light sleepers.

Beautiful hotel in great location
Wonderful location. Beautiful decorations at Christmas - very festive. Great American Bar and very good restaurant (Game Bird). Staff are excellent. Rooms are a bit on the small side. There are no tea making facilities (although there is coffee)
Jeanne, gb2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Good stay but not the 9.4 excellent on reviews
Fantastically positioned hotel we walked everywhere but compared to other 5 star hotels we stay at in London this one doesn’t compare. Our room was tired and the bathroom needed attention. The welcome at reception was good, the valet parking gentleman on arrival was great and we received great service in the American Bar but would not choose to stay again unfortunately.
Helen, gb2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Simply the best.
Staff are not only professional, but charming. Nothing is too much trouble and the "stuffiness" one normally associates with 5 star hotels is absent.
