Great hotel, but the breakfast is a bit overpriced. Rooms in London do not come cheap and this is a bit better than others in the immediate area. ( I found it to be about $75- $100 less). The rooms are definitely European in that they are small, but they are pretty, tidy and modern. The concierge and staff were... More

I had a great evening and night at the Cavendish London hotel. The hotel is strategically located in the heart of London. By London standards, room were large and comfortable. Staff was very gentle and helpful. Rooms are stylish (with taste) decorated and well equipped. I felt at home from the first moment. Qua price in the medium/ high but... More

Friendly staff, and great location to base your trip when visiting London and surrounding areas. Located next to the high street shops and restaurants and stones through away from Fortnum & Mason where there is a great tea room. The rooms were clean and tidy rooms with water supplied each day. Cocktails were around £8.50 cheaper than most of the... More

I have stayed here 3 times with my partner over the last few years. I absolutely love this hotel. The first time we stayed here we had a classic double room, we had great views over London, the bed was unbelievably comfy but the room itself was quite small. The second time we stayed it was for my birthday. We... More

We've been here twice now and love it. The staff are great, very helpful. The food is wonderful especially breakfast, think I may have gained about a stone in my visit. The rooms are very comfortable, equipped with everything needed and air con. It's in a great location for theatre trips, shopping, sight seeing and restaurants.

The Cavendish is situated in the very prosperous district of St.James and is very close to some high end shopping and very expensive eating establishments with The Ritz and Fortnum & Mason just around the corner. I stayed here for 2 days whilst working in London. The reception check in was swift and the receptionist professional and yet personable. My... More

Just returned home yesterday, after 5 nights at the Cavendish Hotel. Our stay was great; starting from the kind staff, which always had a smile, going through checking in in the middle of the night, and to the comfy, quiet, and clean room. This hotel is located in the best possible location, in the middle of all the attractions, and... More

We had a fantastic time at the Cavendish. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to an Executive King Room as we were celebrating our anniversary. Once in our room there was a bottle of champagne and box of chocolates waiting for us! Touches that were not requested by ourselves but extremely appreciated. The room itself was spacious,... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
