The Connaught is a beautiful & traditional, small Mayfair Hotel. We stayed for 1 night, which they did upgrade for us too. The staff were attentive, but not over the top. It was first class without being pretentious. The only unfortunate situation was with the breakfast, it came out 3 times incorrectly. When it was served correctly, it was delicious.... More

Went here for a couple of drinks with friends/ work colleagues before going on to dine at Murano. Polite, discreet service. Bar snacks were good olives but slightly soft crisps so not a patch on Claridge's. My Bellini was great, and the cocktail and other drinks list was extensive. Nice bathrooms.

If you can afford the price of the smallest room, so there is no other place to stay in London. Very close for your expensive shopping in Mayfair. Discretion and english style. Oh I forgot.... Have a drink at the bar and watch the staff doing the cocktails...it is very chic whyle sipping a glass of Krug.

Visited Espelette today (6 July 2014) for afternoon tea and there were absolutely no faults! From the moment we arrived in the cab (the doors of which were opened for us by the porters outside the hotel which was lovely and unexpected) to the moment we left, the staff were polite, friendly and attentive. All of the food was delicious,... More

Visited Connaught for afternoon tea with family for my sister's birthday It was fab, great service, lovely sandwiches and spectacular cakes. One of the party was coeliac but this caused no problem and she was given almost identical fare. Aside from the cakes the jam was also amazing. I would have bought a pot if I had known it was...

In June this year I was fortunate to be visiting the Connaught for afternoon tea. I have visited the Ritz on a few occasions and have to say this was streets ahead in every way. The welcome and service was exceptional with attentive friendly staff unlike the Ritz with overweight disinterested staff. The food selection was fresh,original, and looked stunning.... More

Originally was going to book Claridge's for tea after a matinee theatre but they were full. Glad we went to The Connaught though. Excellent service and lovely cakes and sandwiches. They did a little extra for me as it was my birthday - nothing over the top but just a nice thoughtful touch. Oh and the toilets are well worth... More
