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

Recently stayed 4 nights at this lovely hotel full of old world charm. It was more like staying as a guest in someone's fabulous house with the staff going out of their way to make us feel welcome. The complimentary glass of champagne at 6pm was a very nice touch. The garden is delightful. Whilst some of the rooms are... More

The hotel was wonderful! The staff was very friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and clean. They were a good size and were decorated in a very traditional English style which added to the endearing quality of the hotel. It is situated in a beautiful and quiet neighbourhood, close to shops and restaurants. You have to take a... More

We just completed a five night stay at The Draycott and it definitely exceeded our expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is terrific. It's a five minute walk to several nice restaurants in the a Duke of York square as well as the Sloane Square subway station and about 10 minute walk to the Kensington... More

First time overnight in London. Draycott was perfect. Great room. courteous and warm friendly staff, lots of amenities and a great location--tucked away in Cadigan Gardens, walking distance to museums and great stores. .Draycott enhanced our London experience.

Not only a most convenient location to London's subway system, but blocks away from one of the most gorgeous shopping/dining areas in London! The hotel itself has lovely, large accommodations, with a staff second to none! Extremely helpful, pleasant and genuine. Afternoon tea and pre-dinner champagne was included. I would highly recommend the Draycott to anyone visiting London looking for... More

Charming hotel in a quiet part of London yet access to everywhere. Staff make it feel like you are guest at a Victorian London townhouse- and it has its own garden to sit in. We have stayed here before and will come back again.

The Draycott Hotel was an extra special surprise during my recent stay in London. It was not the type of hotel I would typically choose as it is pretty small (boutique) and traditional in style but I stayed there as I was meeting with some colleagues - and I am SO GLAD I did!! This hotel is charm personified from... More
