“One of the best hotels in London!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The hotel has a very convenient and quiet location with beautiful grounds. Service is of the highest standards with attention to detail and the staff is extremely polite.The deluxe room is very comfortable, with great beds and pillows, and we absolutely loved our gas fire place which made the room so homely.

This was my first stay at the Draycott and I'll be back.

It's a charming and quiet establishment, service exemplary and staff made me feel very welcome.

The location is fantastic with many great restaurants on the doorstep and I had a wonderful nights sleep.

I have stayed many times over the years at this well located and charming establishment and have yet to be disappointed. It has the feeling of a gracious home and the staff welcome me like an old friend. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a small, intimate and personal hotel in Chelsea.

We spent two nights in charming Draycott Hotel! Everything were amazing: atmosphere, very friendly and intelligent stuff, beautiful rooms, hot chocolate in the library, glass of champagne before the theatre and warm floor in the bathroom:-) we were absolutely happy in Draycott! Thanks a lot for your care! Hope to come back again and again!

great hotel, lacks some of the amenities of bigger hotels but more than compensates through the exceptional quality of accomodation, relaxation, staffing and service. nowhere else i stay in london offers the same degree of relaxation and quality. a home from home

We spent 5 nights at the Draycott between Xmas and New Year's Eve in December 2013.
As we expceted we had a wonderful stay in a truly British atmosphere and really hope to go back very soon!!
The hotel itself is composed by three wonderful town-houses, therefore expect many steps and maze like corridors, which in our opinion, add charm to the property.
The feel you get, as many have already said, is that of a welcoming home away from home, but with excellend and friendly sevice and all the spoils that make your stay a truly wonderful one.
We had booked a superior double romm which was wonderful: we stayed in Sheridan which is on the 4th floor, has a king size bed with coronet, a wonderful fìgas fireplace and a nice view over the roofs. Very good in size too. The bathroom is on the small side but is still very comfortable.
Locationwise the Draycott is unbeatable: 1 minute from Sloane Square underground station , walking distance to Harrods and even Buckingham Palace....
We really enjoyed coming back from a dense day of sightseeing and shopping with a glass of champagne and also pre-bed chocolate was a very nice touch every evening!
We were on continental breakfast and found it to be plentiful and of very good quality (yoghurts are really special!).
Service was always very welcoming; from booking process, to concierge, to breakfast we were always greeted warmly and with a smile!!!
A few areas of improvement to make a stay even more comfortable could be: bottled water at turndown, body lotion in the bathroom and tea-coffee making facilities in in room (even if tea, champagne and hot chocolate are offered in the drawing room each afternoon)
Thanks to the Draycott for a wonderful and truly British London experience!!!!

Room Tip: We asked for Sheridan on the top floor with fireplace and king size bed and it was gorgeous, but I a...

I mostly appreciate the kindness of all the staff. Every my visit to London, I stay here and this year, I had the first over-Christmas stay. It was the most beautiful, peaceful and homely Christmas I ever had. Thank you very much, indeed.

Room Tip: Good and privately named classic style rooms we can enjoy.
