Although been only twice before the closure, I could not wait for it to be opened again. Amazingly well done refurbishment. Great signature and nicely made classic cocktails to chill next to on every night. With matching snacks and light food options.

The Lanesborough is quite possibly the most understated hotel in London. As it is located right at the corner of Hyde Park where traffic just passes by, most people don't seem to notice its existence. We stayed in a senior suite there for 5 nights and were really impressed with everything: our room was clean and comfortable, and the staff... More

I'm going to keep this review very short, although I could write a thesis! From the moment you step inside The Lanesborough, the staff are incredibly attentive, friendly and polite. We had dinner at the Celeste restaurant which is a feast for the eyes. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Knowledgeable staff floated gracefully, you hardly knew they were there. The...

Three of us went to the Lanesborough last Saturday for the Céleste afternoon tea. The hotel has recently been refurbished. We had an excellent time, the sandwiches, teas, scones and service were all great. The egg sandwiches were the very best that I have ever tasted.....The ambiance was very good too. This is a visit to be repeated!

We visited London in a not so good period for me but the staff in the hotel was very friendly and the butler service was awesome. I felt pampered and happy. The room was smaller than expected but nice and luxurious. Nice location with Hyde park and Knightsbridge at walking distance

We booked a dairy free afternoon tea in this hotel, following the amazing reviews on the topic on both Time Out and the website of the hotel - to say we were disappointed with the offer, it's an understatement! We booked with more than two weeks in advance, and made it clear our dietary requirements. When we got there, a... More

We had afternoon tea in the Celeste Room, from beginning to end it was perfect. The service was impeccable, the food delicious, they catered for dietary requirements, we had no complaints whatsoever. If you want a delicious afternoon tea in grand surroundings then come here. The Price for traditional afternoon tea was £45 and £ 57 with champage.

Its been a great hotel for many years and will continue to be so once fully up to speed again, even if the refurbished rooms are a matter of personal taste. I left grateful to the staff, disappointed by the new room designs and the new pricing.

We travel a lot and are just home from a business trip to London and three nights in this wonderful hotel that has just opened after a lengthy renewal. Beautifully done with wonderful staff.
