If you can , stay there. You feel like royalty and at home at the same time. The bar is funky . there is a cigar room if you smoke and the breakfast is delicious. The restaurant serves the best high tea in London.

The fruit, tea biscuits, bottled spring water were replenished daily and complimentary tea service was available in my room at any time from the 24 hour butler service.... More
