I stayed at The Draycott Hotel London last week when seeing a show. A very comfortable small hotel in a great location, slightly old fashioned but in a nice cosy way and the staff were very friendly and attentive staff. Thank you Fred

Little to add to what others have already said - this was a wonderful base, as a single female traveller. Room was small but perfectly formed, with everything I needed. I loved the tea in the afternoon and hot chocolate before bed. The staff were exceptionally friendly and I look forward to a return stay.

Traveling solo, and yes, the room was very small - but a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Great place to recover from the crowds and frenetic pace of London. Located off Sloane Square next to a church primary school, with a large garden in the back. Amazingly quiet. The staff are superb. Small but well equipped room with a good sized bathroom.... More

We picked this spot as we were in England for a few days right before Christmas. The Draycott was perfect. Our room was full of antiques and had direct access to a neighborhood garden. The hotel is right near Sloane Square so we were in walking distance to local restaurants, high-end shops (from tiffany & co. to a lovely market/deli)... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Draycott. Our room opened onto a private neighborhood garden and the room had a lovely fireplace and sitting area. The bed was very comfortable with excellent high and linens. The hotel is right near Sloane Square which is full of restaurants and various high end retail such as Tiffanys and Co. It was... More

Beautiful hotel and our room was very good and spacious for London with plenty of storage space. The access on to the garden at the back was appreciated as the weather was quite hot when we were there; staff are happy for you to take tea/drinks there. Good breakfast and first rate staff. Would definitely stay there again

The staff at the Draycott was outstanding. The hotel was clean. However, the hotel itself is dated. Our room, especially the bathroom, needed to be updated, painted and repaired. Perhaps other rooms have been upgraded and they haven't gotten to the room we stayed in. The photo of the hotel is of the back of the building. The street entrance... More

Whenever we are in London we stay at the Draycott - so it is a bit like coming home each time. It is a wonderful place to stay with extremely friendly and helpful staff who make you feel really welcome. I guess nothing more needs to be said...

We've been coming to the Draycott for years and have always enjoyed it. It's 3 Edwardian houses joined together discretely, retaining all the charm of that era, with wonderful and individually designed rooms - each with a name from someone famous in the theatre or literature. The location so near Sloane Square and King's Road is marvellous.

What a wonderful hotel! Not only is it absolutely beautiful, ridiculously comfortable, and perfectly located, the staff is extremely helpful and charming. The neighborhood is lovely, and you feel a bit like you are living there with many nice restaurants and fantastic grocery stores nearby. There's a very pretty garden in the back, and tea is served every afternoon.
