“Exquisite on every detail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

What can I say that has not already been said?..The Corinthia is as near to perfect a hotel as you would find in London or anywhere else for that matter. We spent 5 nights at this amazing property and they set the bar so high other hotels will no doubt pale in comparison. The rooms are lovely and well appointed, every small consideration has been attended to. The staff are top-notch, and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and special. We treated ourselves to tea in the lobby on Mother' Day (i was travelling with my senior citizen mom who loved every moment at the hotel), and the food was delicious and the cakes almost to beautiful to eat! It's a splurge no question, but worth every cent. Would never stay anywhere else in London.

Thank you for posting a charming review of your five day stay at Corinthia Hotel London, it certainly sounds like you had a most enjoyable time. We are very pleased to read you noticed the meticulous attention to detail, especially as we pride ourselves on our Craftsmanship of Care training and policy. All of our beautifully appointed rooms come with a host of complimentary amenities, including the fastest broadband at 1Gb, fluffy dressing gowns and slippers, ESPA toiletries, a Nespresso coffee machine, and turndown treats. We are delighted that you were able to celebrate Mother's Day taking Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge, under the iconic Baccarat chandelier, and yes the themed fancies sometimes look too lovely to eat. We have just started the Chelsea Afternoon Tea today, and the pastries are divine, handmade in our own kitchens by our pastry chef, Kimberley Lin-McCartney, a fellow Canadian. We are very pleased you now wouldn't stay anywhere else as the team at Corinthia London are very much looking forward to welcoming you on your next visit to London.

Kind regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

An amazing hotel from start to finish. I stayed for 2 weekend nights, with a work party, and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were friendly, helpful & polite. The room was beautiful and every small touch had been thought of. Big comfortable bed, a small balcony looking onto an inner courtyard, fantastic walk in wardrobe, great coffee machine, great shower, lovely toiletries... I could go on. The Bassoon Bar has great cocktails. The Spa is quite simply the best I have been to. Great location in terms of tourist attractions and transport links. Will never stay in another hotel when in London.. Well done the Corinthia.

Thank you for posting a glowing review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. The hotel is ideal for a business trip, with an array of complimentary amenities to make your stay more comfortable; from the fastest 1Gb broadband connection, to the international plug board, Nespresso coffee machine, ESPA toiletries, an extensive selection of international television channels, and of course the fabulous separate rain shower in the underfloor heated marble bathroom that comes as standard. We have both internally-facing rooms with small balconies that overlook the charming courtyard, or external-facing rooms with some stunning views of London. We are delighted you managed to experience many of the facilities the hotel has to offer, we agree the bespoke cocktails in Bassoon are the best in London, whilst the award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia spa is out of this world. The location is also ideal for the business traveller, with an adjacent transport hub for quick and easy access throughout the city, as well as many of London's must-see sights on the doorstep. We are very pleased that we are now your hotel of choice in London, as the team are very much looking forward to welcoming you on your return visit.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March to attend a soccer match in London. The common areas are beautiful and inviting when you enter the lobby. We arrived early one morning and our room was ready for check-in when we arrived. The room, bathroom, linens and sitting area were over the top. The service was on par with the best we have ever had. They replied immediately to any request and knew our names quickly. We had afternoon tea, breakfast and a late dinner in the restaurant - all were superb. Another huge bonus was the location. We were in walking distance of most major attractions in Central London. This is an expensive property - but well worth every dollar spent.

Thank you for posting a fantastic review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. The lobby with the stunning one thousand and one Baccarat crystal chandelier, which bathes the lounge and reception in a natural light, coupled with the impressive flower displays makes a stunning first impression. All of our rooms come with a host of complimentary amenities to make your stay more comfortable, from fluffy dressing gowns and slippers, welcome gifts for children, ESPA toiletries, baths with built in LCD TVs, and turndown treats, making it the perfect place for families. We are very pleased you enjoyed the extensive buffet breakfast served in The Northall, and the delicate Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge, as well as dinner in our international restaurants. The hotel is also ideally located for the leisure stay, with an adjacent transport hub for easy access around the city, including the Thames River Cruiser for boat rides to the City, Greenwich, and beyond, as well as many of London's must-see sights which are within walking distance. We are however always most delighted to hear great feedback regarding the team, and take great pride when we read that the "service was the best you ever had", especially as the team always strive to go the extra mile to exceed every guest's expectations. We only hope we will be your hotel of choice on your return visit to London, as the staff are very much looking forward to offering you a very warm Corinthia welcome.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

Thank you for posting a review of your Afternoon Tea at Corinthia Hotel London. We feel very privileged that you chose to share your birthday celebrations with us, where better to raise a toast than under the iconic Baccarat chandelier in The Lobby Lounge, and with a bespoke cocktail too. We are delighted you enjoyed your special occasion and look forward to welcoming you back for many more to come.

The Corinthia is a stunning hotel. Our rooms were luxurious and beautiful with great facilities to make you feel truly pampered and the public areas are amazing. We had a fantastic breakfast in the restaurant with a great buffet selection and the staff were warm and friendly. We will definitely be going back.

Quick visit to the Corinthia, starting with drinks in the Northall Bar. Lovely atmosphere, attentive yet unobtrusive staff and great house champagne!
Then on to Massimo's - modern Italian. Again, excellent service, this time coupled with delicious and imaginative but unfussy food.

Worth saving up for an overnight stay next time!

Thank you for posting a great review of your dining experience at Corinthia Hotel London. The Northall is a great bar to start the evening, especially as our house Champagne is Laurent-Perrier. Then onto Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar for dinner is a real treat, with modern Italian cooking, you had the best of both worlds. We cannot wait to welcome you as a guest to stay in Corinthia London, when you will have the opportunity to experience many of the other excellent facilities the hotel has to offer.
