If you like a hotel that oozes character, has really comfortable quiet bedrooms and lovely bathrooms the Stafford is for you and us.The reception and room service are impeccable
nothing is too much trouble and the staff very friendly. The price is on the highish side but
given that there are many characterless and cold hotels in London charging the same, it
is not unreasonable. The location in St James's Place is perfect for Central London.
We arrived on Sunday night after a 15 hour flight and after room service and a glass of
wine, drifted away in a large very comfy bed, perfect. In the morning somewhat jet lagged
we went down to breakfast and were dissappointed to discover that on monday mornings the
breakfast room completely stuffed with business bredakfasters from outside the hotel, not
a single table for residents available and a long queue, we were asked to wait or have breakfast in the room, we were not offered a cup of tea or coffee and ignored by the
restaurant manager. Ummmph we went down the road to the excellent Sofitel St James's
hotel and had a couple of their excellent buffet breakfasts. On returning to the hotel there
were profuse apologies from management and they offered to pay the bill at the Sofitel.
So it was put right to our satisfaction. Tuesday morning the restaurant breakfast was quieter
and we had a pleasant breakfast in the hotel as you would expect. So the recommendation
is for Monday morning breakfast is to reserve a table in advance !
