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

This is the most comfortable homey (although with original art work and real fireplace and antique furniture its more elegant than most homes.Wonderfully located for all the high fashion shops and Harrods and convenient to the Sloane Square tube station, with a good pastry and coffee shop a few steps from the door. The hotel's breakfast is very expensive ,... 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

This hotel is very charming however, it is more about charm than luxury. Location is convenient for shopping Sloane Street and Harrods etc being just around the corner. It's in a residential rather than commercial area and is more like a private home than a hotel. This worked and made me feel comfortable but it had it's draw backs. The... More

We read about the tea at 4, champagne at 6 and hot chocolate in the evening. It was grand. You walk up a few outside steps and suddenly you are in "your" English home with a great sitting room overlooking a garden in a neighborhood where the jeweler down the street is Tiffany. Steps away from shopping and delightful restaurants... More

I spent 6 nights at the Draycott last week, all in the same room. My particular room was fairly small, intended for a single person, but I expecting that going in. The room itself was very comfortable and offered all I needed. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and my room was well attended on a daily basis... More

Dear Guest, I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us at the Draycott and were made to feel at home, it is our hope that our guests feel like they are stepping into their very own Chelsea residence rather than a hotel.

A very good hotel with a very quirky feel. Comfortable rooms and clean. Accommodating staff which can be quite unusual in this part of the country. Enjoyable experience and would return without a doubt. There are improvements that I can suggest but will provide them in privately.

This absolutely charming hotel, an amalgamation of 3 terraces in Chelsea, is a gem. We had a larger room facing the street on the 4th floor. It was spacious, well appointed with a wonderously comfortable bed. The formal rooms, 2, are so nice you feel as if you donot want to leave. The complimentary champagne at 6 is such a... More

In the heart of the most exclusive area of London, a stone's throw from Sloane Square and Knightsbridge this little boutique hotel is a rare find, a gem. Single rooms are impossibly hard to find in London, and this hotel had two available, at sensible prices for this area of London, on the night we needed. I would challenge anyone... More
