This was the first time I have indulged in the pleasure that is afternoon tea and all I can say is it was simply stunning. The Connaught is everything you would expect from a traditional premier London hotel but being this close to xmas it had added nostalgia which I am sure will stay with me forever. The tea itself...

The whole experience was awful. First no trace of my tea reservation so we went to the dark Bar at the rear of the hotel for a drink until a table could be ready. Champagne was warm and service dire. The glamorous staff were.more interested in their own conversations than serving guests! Service equally bad over tea. Impossible to attract... More

The Connaught is a wonderful location for cocktails, the mixologists here, really know their stuff. Wonderful Christmas celebration cocktails mix warmly with classics and martini's. OK, on the face of it, it's looks a bit on the steep side, but better cocktails coupled with a stunning bar would be hard to find anywhere in London. Having looked at other locations,... More

My husband and I stayed in a deluxe room for a week. The rooms are quite small, but are designed well and have all the comforts of home. Location is superb on Mount street which links Mayfair to almost Oxford street, full of wonderful designer shops. Rooms were cleaned up daily to a high standard with half used ammeneties are...

We went there for my birthday treat, the staff were friendly and helpful. The afternoon tea was good, though perhaps more rushed than we had experienced recently at another well known hotel which does afternoon tea. My main complaint was that when they bought out the cakes selection, there were only one of each, if we wanted to try the... More

Great location, great rooms, great general service. But at this level, you would expect perfect service. TV wasn't properly set-up and after 3 visits in the room over 90 minutes, still no change. So no TV for that evening. No biggy, but come on, you can't get your TV to work properly in a 700pounds a night hotel ? Light... More

I have been coming to the Connaught for so many years and the place just keeps getting better (although this is not really possible; let's say it manages to stay unique, which in itself is already a major achievement). The hotel and the rooms are perfect of course, but what strikes me every time is the utter professionalism of staff.... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
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.
