“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We didn't stay here but we had the most wonderful meal at lunchtime. We all had a three course meal and a glass of champagne for £35 and it was well worth the money. The staff make you feel so comfortable from beginning to end and nothing is too much trouble for them. The dinning room is lovely with orchids on the centre table.
The food was very enjoyable. We had smoked salmon for starters followed by Cumbrian beef which was the best beef I've ever tasted. Pudding was also delicious. The only thing we would have liked would have been to have extra gravy in a jug for those of us who like a lot on our meat. We will certainly be returning when we next visit London. Many thank to all the staff who made this a very enjoyable lunch.

Thank you for posting your fabulous review of The Northall restaurant at Corinthia Hotel London, it certainly sounds like you had a very enjoyable Sunday lunch. The three course set Sunday lunch, including a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne, is extremely good value and appreciated by both our residents and external guests, we get especially good feedback on our melt-in-the-mouth roast beef. Your thanks will be passed onto The Northall team, and we look forward to welcoming you once again, hopefully next time as a hotel guest.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

Service was outstanding from the moment we checked in. Beautifully appointed room, loved the ambient music. Very much enjoyed the spa and had a fab massage. Ate in the restaurant and both food and wine were delicious. B/fast was totally amazing, best I've ever had. Also really liked being able to check in/out when we wanted,

Thank you for your review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London, and for including so succinctly all the highlights of the hotel. We are most appreciative of your praise for our customer service standards, as we pride ourselves on our policy of Craftsmanship of Care. All of our beautifully appointed rooms combine both the most luxurious fixtures and fittings with modern design and technology. The ESPA Life spa is a must for all our guests, with four beautifully appointed marble floors housing a state-of-the-art gym, swimming and vitality pool, an amphitheatre sauna and steam room, as well as seventeen treatment rooms. The Northall buffet breakfast offers a wide variety of choice from healthy cereals and fruits to a full English. The bookable check-in/check-out policy has proved very popular, allowing flexibility when making travel arrangements. We are really pleased you were impressed with the hotel, and that you were able to enjoy a relaxing break with us, and we hope to have the opportunity for you to enjoy it once more.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

I stayed here for my girlfriends birthday on a Sunday night, we were literally blown away by every aspect of the room, hotel, service and food. I'm worried about going to another hotel because the bar has been set so high by this experience! Can't highly recommend enough! A must visit!

My first visit to this exquisite hotel. Beautiful lounge and tea room, sharp high ceiling atmospheric restaurants and bars, luxurious spa. The rooms are splendid and very quiet. Service was courteous and professional. Superb luxury hotel.

Room Tip: I picked a courtyard room but i think all the rooms are likely quiet and comfortable.

Thank you for posting your review of your first stay at Corinthia Hotel London. You have summed up very succinctly all that is best about the hotel, The Lobby Lounge with the impressive 1001 crystal Baccarat chandelier serves the most sumptuous Afternoon Teas, whilst The Northall offers the best of British fare and Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar has stylish modern Italian food with a twist. We very much look forward to welcoming you on your second visit.

I have had the good fortune to stay on two occasions at this superb hotel. On both occasions, I have been lucky enough to receive an upgrade. My last stay I was upgraded to a executive room. Not only was the room spacious, own hallway with coffee machine, mini bar, seperate walk in wardrobe, large bathroom - with a bath sooo deep it took 10 mintues to fill and a raindrop shower! The beds are extremely comfortable, the laid back attitude of the staff is refreshing and unobtrusive. I actually had to call to find out when we had to check out as no body bothered me to hassle me out or try to charge a ridiculous rate for an additional hours stay.

The attention to detail is phenominal. From the mood lighting at a touch of button, to the food recommendations at breakfast, invigorating spa products in the bathroom, personalised note from the head of sales with a business card welcoming me back, chocolate on the pillow, dressing gown laid out ready to jump into at bedtime.

There is NOTHING I can fault about this hotel. I just can't wait to stay again :)

Thank you for posting such a succinct and yet perfect review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London, you have summed the hotel up to a tee. The location is ideal for sight-seeing being within walking distance of many of London’s iconic sights, close to the City of London for business and adjacent to the central transport hub of Charing Cross rail and Embankment tube stations. All of our bedrooms are larger than average for central London hotels, and we pride ourselves on our Craftsmanship of Care customer service policy. Stunning flower arrangements are displayed throughout the hotel by our own in-house florist, which can also be ordered specially for rooms, and sent to external recipients. The Afternoon Tea is very special, and is themed according to season, currently we have an Easter extravaganza, and the forthcoming Chelsea Tea is going to be a real winner, hope you will be able to join us and sample it.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

I would not hesitate to recommend Corinthia to anyone, including the experienced world traveler who expects the best. The whole experience is truly 5 star: the staff, the hotel common areas, the restaurants and bar, the modern and tasteful rooms with their enormous beds and marble bathrooms and their heated floors and spa amenities, the turn down service, and of course the spa. I never wanted to leave.

The spa, I cannot say enough good things about the spa. It is likely my favorite hotel spa to date. Dark, warm and restorative with not a lot of the 'feminine' trappings of your general hotel spa, meaning, white, floral, new age music etc. The Spa is like a secret underground multi floor grotto. The Vitality bath was extraordinary. I am sure it could cure the worst case of jet-lag or a particularly bad hangover. The same would be said of the in room rain showers. I know, I know...you've probably taken a shower in a rain shower before, perhaps you even have one at home..but, not like this rain shower. The rain shower just pours water out unashamedly on you. I can't imagine the hotel's water bills. Just wonderful.

What else could I say that has likely already been said? The location in fantastic for touring the London sites. Don't hesitate to book this hotel, it is worth every penny.

The hotel was designed to appeal to the 21st century traveller, and combines the best of features of traditional grand hotels with modern facilities and technology. You have highlighted all of the features that come as standard that makes the hotel so special, all of our bedrooms are larger than the average central London rooms, and all come complete with enormous underfloor heated marble bathrooms with built in LCD-TV and separate super rain showers. ESPA Life at Corinthia is indeed exceptional, with four floors of marble luxury housing separate Men and Women changing floors, a state-of-the-art gym and a Thermal Floor with a swimming and vitality pool, amphitheatre sauna, steam room and heated Cleopatra relaxation beds, as well as seventeen private rooms offering alternative and complementary medicine and traditional spa treatments. The location of the hotel is fantastic, it is within walking distance of many of London’s must-see sights, including Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and The National Gallery. There are thirty West End theatres within the perimeter of the hotel, it is adjacent to the central transport hub of Charing Cross rail and Embankment tube stations, close to the City of London and you can even get the boat down to Greenwich from Embankment pier.
