Really impressed from start to finish. Booked a superior twin, with park view. Room was on 12th floor and we had great views right across Hyde park and could see all of the main landmarks, such as the London Eye and the Shard. The room was ideal for the time we spent in it. Very comfy beds and the room... More

Staff are all very helpful. The hotel is very clean and well appointed. Excellent location right next to Hyde Park. The rooms are standard design with all you would expect with breathtaking views from the upper floors. We were on the 9th floor - imagine what it would be like from the 18th floor! Breakfast was good although remember that... More

Our stay at the Lancaster London was not so nice, because we had our luggage broken into while it was in our room, and the suitcase was wrecked. The managment did compensate us for the dammage to the suitcase, but we did not really feel safe leaving our things in the room after that. The water in the sink and... More

I would just like to say that during my short stay at the Royal Lancaster, I was treated with respect and consideration. Every attention to detail was perfect and, as a wheelchair user, I was provided with extra care. I would particularly like to thank Patrick Meehan especially was very gentlemanly and went the extra mile. Thank you

We were extremely well looked after at the Lancaster from pre-booking and arrival through to check out. Big hotels often feel very impersonal but all the staff here were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. A great central location and our room with great views across London and Hyde Park.

My husband and I stayed at The Lancaster for my birthday. From the moment we arrived the service we received from booking in to ordering a drink was brilliant. When we arrived in our room the Client Liaison Team had arranged balloons, wine and chocolates as a surprise. The whole stay was made memorable and we will definitely stay again.

I use this hotel a lot for business trips. It's in a great location sitting right at the Lancaster Gate tube station and across the road from Hyde Park in a nice part of town. It is a hotel on a large scale so not the most charming for a vacation weekend. The rooms are small but clean although it... More
