I felt the experience of an afternoon tea was a necessity for our family's first visit to England. Time and research got away from me and I made the reservation the day of the seating - a Saturday (the last seating is earlier during the week). I was right to feel lucky. The servings there are unlimited but it's good... More

the hotel is perfect for a first visit to London, as in our case, since its location is great to be next to Trafalgar Square so that you can walk to most attractions, taking close several lines Metro, many buses and even a train station in the basement of the hotel, this being at the same time, its main disadvantage...

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our visit. The room (upgraded to deluxe) was large and had all of the amenities we wanted. The service everywhere was excellent. We had a late dinner at the hotel restaurant - Hix Mayfair - that was also excellent and had a wide variety of entrees. I had fish and chips and my wife... More

Loved staying here for the three nights we were in London. What did we love about our stay here? The friendly and knowledgeable staff, the great food available in either HIX or the bar, and the fact that our three young daughters had a number of gifts awaiting them in the room when we checked in. They know what "customer... More

This was a 70th birthday gift from my niece - champagne afternoon tea in London. We chose Brown's as my brother recommended it and were not disappointed. The atmosphere was sophisticated yet welcoming. The staff were attentive and pleasant. They did not rush at all so we were able to relax and enjoy the delicious fare. Dress code stated smart,...

We do have a recommended dress code for the tea room, though not everyone observes it as you noticed and I am pleased that you did not allow this to not spoil your day. We like to make special occasions memorable and I am so pleased that you had a thoroughly enjoyable and unhurried 70th birthday celebration with us here... More

When travelling, Our family have a tendency to move between two luxury hotel chains. One is the Shangri-la and the other Rocco Forte. We had chosen Browns as we had started our trip with the Charles in Munich and knew if we were to fly for 24 hours home, we would want to be pampered before hand. Browns certainly didn't... More

I've stayed at Brown's several times, and have experienced it in different stages of decor and repair. Though the interiors may change, there are constants that do not: Brown's is the quietest, roomiest, loveliest sleep in London. True to its history, it does not feel like a hotel. It feels like a stay in a lovely, highly attentive Mayfair home,... More

We visited the restaurant with friends to celebrate a birthday. My son was the only non adult in attendance. The restaurant made everyone feel welcome.

I work locally so this is a great place to catchup with friends and colleagues when meeting space is booked out. The Donovan bar is quite dark and can be noisy but the seats are comfortable and the service good. Whilst the drinks prices are scary they are are in keeping with other similar establishments in the area. My martini... More
