Visited with my daughter for a pre-christmas break and couldn't have wished for more. It was a little bit of heaven in the midst of Xmas madness. Lovely room, charming staff and a great breakfast on Sunday morning - waiter was slightly stressed by declaring he was having a disaster with a lack of teaspoons - but in the grand... More

From the first moment to the last farewell, there were only special moments. In a nutshell, the hotel is a residential based property, renovated cleverly in to a first class hotel property, with service that is impeccable and professional but also warm and friendly. We never found anything to complain about. Suffering from the usual foggy lag from a long... More

My husband and I visited London on our recent honeymoon and had an absolutely amazing stay at The Draycott in London!

A small charming townhouse, with rooms named after more or less famous authors instead of numbers. Really a hotel with charm and history, and very pleasant staff. To get in you have to ring the bell as entering a private home, and fro there you feel like home. No restaurant or bar, but free afternoon tea, champagne and good night... More

Charming old townhouse with great service. If you are a Harrods and high end stores fan you are in the right area. However far from Selfridge's, Oxford and the theatres area. Our main negative is for the ridiculous small elevator, steps up and down to get to some higher floor rooms, bathroom with no electrical outlet. However, we would still... More

I only spent one night here unfortunately. It was a bit difficult to locate as it has the appearance, of a normal elegant house, and there are steps going up to the entrance. But the welcome was very friendly and genuine, the room superb with everything one could possibly wish for (except for a nail file which was instantly provided... More

With a significant birthday looming my husband thought that he would treat me to a weekend in London. Normally we would go to the Cotswolds but I made noises about exploring the city we already live in. He spent ages looking for the right hotel, private, a central location, not noisy, open fires, warm, comfortable, period furnishings, and got it... 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.
