“Leap Year Proposal !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

In Feb 2012 I came here to propose to my boyfriend - Now fiance!
The staff were so friendly and helpful, helping me put candles in the room and laying out the rose petals on the bed for me.
I had told my partner that the 'Kings Of Leon' were staying at the hotel, the only downside to this hotel was that they weren't actually there!

Would recommend this hotel to anyone, its so stylish and sophisticated and the outside courtyard is beautiful !!
Many thanks to all the staff that made it possible for me.

Stayed at this hotel before an evening function at the Grosvenor. And had to leave first thing as a day of meetings lay ahead. Was gutted not to be there longer ! Very friendly welcome at reception, before going up in the amazing lift to my spacious room. Lots of lovely touches, the bed was really comfortable. Well worth a visit.

Love the quirky reception, bars, lifts, rooms, ambience, everything. Nothing to not like. Breakfast omelette was probably the best ive tasted. If you are bored of the same old hotel interiors and like stylish modern design this will be a refreshing change

I had a lovely stay recently at the Sanderson. We had a business meeting there during the day and they very kindly checked our whole party in early (in some cases with an upgrade) so we could unpack. The rooms are modern but luxurious and the bed was lovely and cosy. We had Spa treatments in the afternoon and the staff there were lovely and the vibe is very chilled. On the whole the staff were great, the one exception being the chap on reception after midnight who was rather unpleasant when I asked for my room key. He asked for ID, which I didn't have, and almost created a stand off situation. He then sighed loudly and asked for my postcode, which I gave him, and handed the key over - what was the point! Overall a great hotel in a good location.

Dear Sarah, thank you very much for your lovely feedback on so many elements of the hotel and it’s good to know that you had an opportunity to also enjoy agua, our urban bathhouse. It is disappointing if any member of staff was less than gracious or attentive, we have core values in place to ensure a friendly, authentic level of service and I am sorry that we let you down in this instance. We would be delighted to welcome you back to Sanderson again, either on an individual visit or group meeting stay and please let us know when you have any reservation confirmed.

Mixing late night party folk with a good night's sleep is not going to be easy on all occasions, and so it was with the Sanderson. It is a laid back hotel with staff who portray as relaxed an approach as is possible in an hotel. Service was quite good generally and quite relaxed.

The public bar is fun but would benefit from the lights working under the worktop to be tip top.

Bedrooms are well maintained.

Dear Patrick, thank you very much for your review. We are dedicated to creating an authentic, friendly ambience alongside gracious and attentive service, and whilst the bars Long Bar is a popular destination for guests and visitors, we are conscious that it should not impact our residents. We are working on a number of refurbishment projects in 2013, including an upgrade for the Long Bar lighting. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sanderson and please let us know when you are next staying so that we can personally oversee your room allocation.

My husband and I rate The Sanderson and The Clift as our two favourite hotels in the world, & have enjoyed our stays and visits to both hotels on many occasions. I would personally recommend both hotels to anyone! I recently had a "chance encounter" with Kevin Rockey, General Manager at The Sanderson, and without going into too much detail, I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Kevin for restoring my faith in the value of excellent customer service. I am already looking forward to our next visit to this wonderful hotel!

Room Tip: We loooooved the "burger breakfast" :-)
