The location can't be beat. The service is great. It has a clubby feel to it. I've stayed here 3 times in the last year. Some of the rooms and bathrooms need to be updated soon. I also found it silly to charge hotel guests for using the spa sauna and steam bath.

As a five-star hotel in London, I had pretty high hopes for the May Fair and was disappointed from what I found. Checkin was swamped when I arrived at 1 PM, and despite the fact that people were being accommodated in front of me and that I have elite status with Club Carlson, the hotel couldn't make a room available....

Stayed at The May Fair hotel on Friday 11th of April. My boyfriend booked a night there as a surprise for my birthday. Pau greeted us at reception and upgraded our room when he found out about the special occasion. He even sent strawberries to our room in the evening which was a lovely surprise (thank you Pau!). The room... More

A big thank you to all at The May Fair for a wonderful stay. Accommodations excellent - could not fault space, cleanliness or facilities in our room. An excellent meal in Quince, and whilst the decor of this area (whilst immaculate) is a little out of sync style-wise to the rest of the hotel, we were excited to learn that... More

Stayed at The May Fair for the second time with my family and again was very well looked after! Off to a good start with a complimentary early check in we soon enjoyed the lovely room and close proximity to so many local attractions. Food in the restaurant was great and the waitress so attentive - special thanks to Marcia... More

Excellent hotel! Helpful and attentive staff. Highly recommend. Very good location, close to good restaurants and galleries. Also good for meetings. Concierge could meet us on all orders. The car service at the Hotel is very good and has similar value to taxis.

Stayed with my sister when we went London for a dinner at the Savoy. Got a room through my travel agent look to book points. Hotel is in a great location about a minute walk from Green Park station in a quiet street of Piccadilly. There is a Sainsbury local opposite the hotel which is very handy. We were allocated... More

As far as hotels go this is posh! Located in the heart of Mayfair, this place is class. The reception team are very professional and the security/doormen (all look like ex-services) have great local knowledge. The rooms are pure luxury with no detail overlooked. Great breakfast and they know how to make coffee! Only downside is the price but if... More

Had a great time, great rooms, great service especially from Mostafa who went the extra mile to make us feel at home. Didn't use the spa/swimming pool but if the rest of the hotel was anything to go by then I'd guess they would be exemplary.

I stayed in The May Fair for one night when working in London. This is a great hotel with a cool atmosphere and friendly staff. Clean, comfortable room and easy check in and out. Had the May Fair been a 4 star hotel, I would have given top marks, but it does lack a certain luxury. I think it could... More
