My husband, Bert Fields, wakes up every day of his life concerned about what he's going to eat for dinner. One of his reasons to go to London is simple. We stay at Blake's and eat there every night. We think it's simply the best restaurant in the world. It's also super romantic. Wherever you stay in London, go to... More

We had breakfast and 2 lunches here while staying at Hotel. Our young waitress on each occasion was helpful and charming. The full English breakfast was great, and the lunch items, gnocchi, seared tuna, crispy Sushi salad were really well crafted and presented. Very casual and relaxed,and a clever hand in the kitchen. The best part of the Hotel.

OK… so this review is a little old…. my husband (then boyfriend) took me here years ago and I still remember the evening like it was yesterday. Fabulous room, very opulent, the service was very attentive. At the time, they gave the lady (diner) a menu without any prices!!! Fantastic food….

edible, but not very tantilising, and no wine list available to chose a decent glass of wine with my meal.

Came to Blake’s for a hen do (around 10 women) and we were really well accommodated for- service was not too intrusive but very knowledgeable about the menu and super friendly. We had afternoon tea (and Champaign) in the Chinese room. Would definitely recommend!

I had the chance to visit the restaurant of the Blakes hotel. I was very warmly welcome by Andres and Lucas . The atmosphere is very cosy, the food delicious and the cocktail very well crafted.

Blakes is a really great place - a 5 star boutique hotel in a lovely residential area of London. Really eclectic and cool. The bar is terrific. Lukas, the barman, is superb - very helpful in all respects, and excellent at his job - congratulations to Blakes for hiring him.
