Based ourselves at this hotel during the Chelsea Flower show for three nights., but it is a superb wonderful location for any London trip. The staff were attentive and friendly. The prefect ambience and such a peaceful breakfast in the intimate breakfast room. We used room service several times which was excellent, although it would have been ideal if they... More

There are more luxurious properties in London. And there are hotels with more amenities. But you won't find a hotel in London that overall is as pleasant and comfortable as the Draycott. We've been staying here for over 25 years through the property's numerous iterations and have never been disappointed. On our most recent visit, the first in almost a... More

I fell in love with this hotel as soon as I was taken up to our room Sheridan. Highlights: Gas fire in the room. Super luxury towels. Location of hotel. Friendliness of staff. Suggested improvements: Provision of body lotion. Inform customers before arrival that they need passport for check-in if they're not British. Definitely recommend this hotel and would book... More

The hotel was warm, comfortable, charming, elegant, and an all around delight to stay in. We especially loved the afternoon tea. Would highly recommend it to anyone traveling for business or pleasure.

This is a very special hotel. It is meant for those that prefer the small boutique hotel feeling. For those that love the personal interaction with the staff of which they remembered your preference. The last time I had visited London was 16 years ago. My wife of four years had visited it 18 years ago. We chose this hotel... More

We spent our Valentine's night at the Draycott hotel. This hotel has a central location in London. The famous Sloane Street and Knightsbridge is within walking distance.Our superior double room was very attractive because it was beautifully decorated with traditional British decorations,e.g. paintings, furniture, photos and a very traditional and efficient heating stove! Everything reminds me my godfather's old flat... More

The Draycott is a really charming hotel in a great location just off Sloane Square. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is cosy and inviting. The bedrooms are huge and very old world England. The drawing room looks over the garden and the complimentary afternoon tea and a glass of champagne before you go out for... More

I have been staying in many different hotels in London over the past 20 years. This is one of the few that combines a subtly expressed good taste with good quality throughout. Other reviewers have described the building and its history but suffice to say that this is not a corporate-style hotel but rather a home away from home. Draycott... 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.
