As with most things in life you get what you pay for. The Stafford is an absolutely top notch establishment with smooth, elegant service and where nothing it seems is too much trouble. Of course this does all come with a relatively hefty price tag but given the setting, the service and the luxury it is undoubtedly a price worth... More

Lunch could hardly get better than this. From the moment you walk through the door, the overwhelming feeling is one of homely quality. The surroundings are delightful, the staff very well presented and extremely helpful whilst the entire place oozes quality. Lunch comprises 3 courses each of which was delicious. Wines were expertly presented by the resident Sommelier whilst the... More

I have stayed at this hotel over many years on business and pleasure .After a period of time when the hotel lost direction it has more than made up ground under the new management. Once again it is a pleasure to stay at this hotel --you can overlook the size of the bedrooms ,which are on the small size ,... More

We were there in July 2014, during a heat wave! First, if you're coming from Heathrow, don't bother with a cab. It is much faster to take the tube and get off at Green Park. From there, the hotel is just down the path in the park, and through an old stone tunnel. The location is terrific -- just down... More

Spent a decadent afternoon here with my daughter feasting on the newly launched Winter Spices Afternoon Tea. Petit gourmet sandwiches, scones with the traditional clotted cream and preserves (a favourite of mine) and sweet treats to die for including a divine Christmas pudding cheesecake and mango eclair! The chai tea perfect with it! Excellent service and set in elegant old... More

We recently stayed at the Stafford London. We expected good service and they exceeded our expectations on all counts. The front desk staff and concierge could not have been nicer and more helpful. The room was terrific with a great bed and was very quiet. The restaurant was excellent both for dinner and breakfast. The service was attentive and welcoming.... More

This is one of the best hotels in London and deserves the reputation. I stayed while it was still a Kempinski hotel, so I don't know if there have been any changes since it has gone independent. Great service, the concierge service is as good as it gets, and very helpful and pleasant staff. Restaurant was wonderful. I had a... More

It was my favorite place in London, all changed since the management changed it is a totally different place doesn't feel at home anymore and it is such a pity. Very few of the old staff that was perfect stayed, the rooms are still great and the hotel beautiful.

What a pleasant surprise this gem tucked in to the St. James are turned out to be. The hotel was suggested by an American Express travel agent and we can't thank him enough. The staff was perfect and the room was fantastic. We had a suite with a large living room, bedroom and bath. We were always warmly greeted by... More
