“Stunning lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile

Third visit to chef residency Allan Pickett at The Sanderson.
Love the truly seasonal celebration of summer menu.
Delightful tomato salad starter followed by one of the most sublime chicken dishes I have ever tasted.
Lovely white Bordeaux by the glass.
Great smiling efficient service.

I booked this hotel through Secret Escapes and reserved a Deluxe room. This was a weekend away for my wife's 50th birthday, so I emailed the hotel to let them know. I received an immediate response from Paris, the guest relations manager.

Upon arrival my wife was wished Happy Birthday by the receptionist and she hinted that there was something special in the room. We went to the room (230) to find a huge room. The design is nothing like any other hotel I have stayed in, with the bathroom area behind glass and electrically controlled curtains with numerous lighting options.
Our bed was decorated with rose petals and we were also presented with a complimentary bottle of Champagne.
The room overlooked the central courtyard. The windows did not open and were double glazed, but there was very good aircon.
We went to a show Saturday night and upon return the bar was very busy, with quite loud music playing (This did not bother us). The bar seemed very popular, not just with hotel guests.

Our booking included breakfast, which was a choice of hot dishes plus all-you-want buffet including cereals, cheese, meats, croissants, toast etc. Everything was good quality and fresh.

All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in London and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 230 (Deluxe) was great, overlooking the courtyard. Not that we spent too much time looking out...

This is a hotel that impresses as soon as you walk in the door. The desk staff are very friendly and helpful. The ambiance in the lobby is trendy and energetic. But the most surprising thing to me was walking into my room. There are a lot of hotels that do modern design well, but it always feels a little sanitized. The Sanderson has a unique take on design that made me appreciate little details that I haven't noticed in a hotel in a long time. The use of glass, combined with great lighting, makes the whole room feel like an art piece. I love how things like the bed and the sink are slightly off-kilter, making the whole room feel a set where everything is precisely placed. This is also one hotel where the design doesn't get in the way of functionality. There were nice considerations like a good reading light near the bed, a comfortable table for working, and strategically placed USB ports. All of this is on top of a perfect location near Soho Square and reasonable pricing for the center of London. A great stay, and I hope to be back again soon.

The hotel lobby, bar, restaurant, and rooms are beautifully designed and maintained. The rooms are particularly comfortable and offer all manner of convenience. There are a variety of connection types, including USB and plug adapters. Bed side connections help travelers with mobile phones. The room decor is elegant and innovative.

An extraordinarily chic hotel in a hip location and not too expensive. The interior design is Phillipe Starcke ca2000 and has worn well. Don't stay on the weekend when the theatre visitors and shoppers from the provinces crowd the place out. Midweek is much cooler

I was amazed by the quality of this hotel from the moment I walked in. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Check in and out was quick and efficient. The room was a room to die for! Really impressive, and confortable, as well as very quiet and relaxing. Very quirky room. The attention to detail this hotel provides is beyond expectations! The breakfast food was of super high quality too. I will absolutely be staying here again on my next visit to the city.

Room Tip: Choose a room on high floor level for good views of the city

Here for my boyfriends birthday. Choose this place cause I saw the review was good and it was indeed great. The staff at the desk was really friendly and helpful. They were very helpful too when I called for room service

First entering the room. It was really clean and beautiful minimalistic. They sprinkled rose petals on the bed making it more romantic for me and my boyfriend and had a welcome cake for us :) and champagne was delivered to our room immediately by a friendly staff.

Room was beautiful, with a great spacial room. The TV was personalized to us. Must say the room was good. Slept really well and had a wonderful sleep.

The breakfast was complimentary with a wide range of buffet choices from the table. Fresh products like cheese, choices of bread and fresh berries were the highlight and the English breakfast was delicious. Again the waitress was really friendly and lovely.

A must stay as this hotel is really good .

A lavish "Urban Spa" in the heart of London’s West End, Sanderson offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and wellbeing. The landmarked 50s building has been transformed into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomizing a “new luxury” that is smart, pared down, and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. Sanderson’s indoor/outdoor lobby is a layered and sophisticated environment that is totally original. ... more   less
