I was taken to this lovely Hotel for afternoon tea as a birthday treat. Lucky me! The service was first class, the Espelette setting was lovely. There was a very good variety of sandwiches, which were replenished. The scones were warm and delicious, as were the other cakes. I loved the tea menu.

We stayed at The Connaught during a family vacation in April and the visit was sheer perfection. We had high expectations based on the ratings and price of the hotel and they were all met or exceeded. The room was beautiful, spacious, bright, and comfortable. There was plenty of storage space as well as a lovely vanity area and desk... More

Loved the Connaught Hotel. Adjacent to Hyde Park, 1 minute to Marble Arch Station, A quick walk through the park to Harrods, and a relaxing stroll to Buckingham Palace and the City. Hotel was very quiet. It was very clean, rooms were well appointed with all the expected services. Meal service was excellent - and access to the VIP Lounge... More

Arrival: On arrival, initial impressions are excellent. The original hotel building has a great deal of old world charm. Through the company I’d booked with there was the benefit of a room upgrade, subject to availability at time of check-in. The upgrade was not provided, and on checking availability via the hotel website they clearly had availability of several rooms.... More

I have been meaning to write a review for sometime having stayed at this hotel well over 30 times during the last three or so years both for business and for pleasure. The Connaught is one of the smaller top end central London hotels and although there is the odd wobble, the service is generally excellent and is delivered by... More

To stay at the Connaught is to know a secret handshake that leads to a World few get to experience. The hotel is owned by the same folks who own the Berkeley and Claridges but this one exceeds the others by a wide margin. The place is perfectly kept, staff are warm and meticulous without being fawning. Everything is perfectly... More

Arrived at 8am for breakfast and the greeting as you arrive was 'good afternoon' next thing I get told the place is full for guests at the hotel, however the place was empty. The manger arrives and says the same thing with no manners as if she was working for a 2 star hotel. Poor service!!!

Just one sentence: a real institution in London! In my opinion, in terms of atmosphere and service, this is distinctively world class. Especially both bars inside The Connaught enjoy such a special vibe - a real place you can merge yourself into. A must visit when in London. Highly recommended!

This luxurious retreat in the historic Mayfair has the feel of a fine English country house and yet is only a pleasant walk through parks and gardens to Buckingham Palace, the National Gallery, Regent Street and all that fascinating London has to offer.

My wife and I always stay at this fine hotel after sampling at least 8 other 5 star hotels in London. The location in Mayfair is key do to its classy soundings along with our favorite lunch spot Scott's right around the corner. There is contemporary wing along with the traditional wing.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
