The Draycott is a gem of a hotel in a fabulous location. There is a door leading from the Sitting Room onto a communal garden which is gorgeous. The hotel is beside a quiet residential road and the back overlooks trees in the garden. It is hard to remember you are in central London. The only complain was the breakfast... More

The location is superb, the staff friendly, the decor very nice...and as long as you get a good large room all is heavenly...the smaller single rooms a bit too small for me... the living and drawing room with access to the gardens a very nice plus...but the staff make it a wonderful stay

Very nice stay at the Draycott, where staff is always prompt and smiling, beautiful enclosed garden reminds me of old time England in the Disney films of my youth -Peter Pan, 1001 Dalmatians-, and you are made to feel at home.

Lovely small hotel, located a stones throw from Sloane Square. Decorated in English country house style, our room was large with high ceilings and beautifully decorated with antiques and interesting books. There is a comfortable drawing room on the ground floor that opens onto a private garden where you can sit on a fine day. Tea is served in the... More

The Draycott won us over immediately with the friendly and helpful staff. The room was delightful; the amenities impressive. Perfect location near Sloane Square for walking to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Harrods, and the Victorian and Albert Museum. Many quality restaurants also within walking distance, When we return to London, we are definitely going to book again... More

The Draycott was the first hotel in a 16 day European trip. It was well located, just off Sloane Square. We had the Ashcroft Suite - awesome. Old fashioned, comfortable, classic London feel. Four poster bed, big windows, balcony opening to a garden. Good English breakfast. Limited service, but everything you want in a warm atmosphere. Near the tube, walking... More

Excellent boutique hotel in Chelsea. Superb gardens, comfortable and well appointed bedrooms. Ideal location behind Sloane Square - perfect for a get away weekend or mini break. Somewhere to be spoiled!

I used to travel to London frequently on business. My employer had a relationship with a flagship 5-star property. One week, it was fully booked and I was placed in this hotel. I was a little upset initially as I knew my way around the other property so well. Upon entering the Draycott, however, all concerns evaporated. The Draycott is... More

We bought a 2-night certificate for a stay at the Draycott Hotel at a charity auction in Los Angeles and planned a 3-night total stay. We loved the hotel. The location is private and exclusive-feeling. Our room was so spacious and had a lovely garden view. The staff were kind and helpful. We absolutely adored the evening champagne service and... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
