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

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
