I wanted to stay somewhere close to Buckingham Palace where I would be attending a ceremony to receive my CBE. This hotel could not be closer, opposite the Royal Mews and only a few minutes walk to the Palace gates. I booked 3 nights in a Junior Suite taking advantage of the 3 nights for 2 suite offer. My Aunt came down from Scotland for the event and we arrived on the Monday afternoon to a warm welcome and a glass of champagne. Contrary to a recent review we found the staff to be very genuine, friendly and eager to make our stay the very best that it could be. The suite was great and being split level, felt like a little flat. We arrived to tropical fruit and bottle of champagne on ice. We felt immediately relaxed and enjoyed our beauty sleep in preparation of the big day. After the investiture we all enjoyed a few bottles of champagne in front of the open fire in the executive lounge which was perfect. As well as attending a number of shows we made sure that we had a few nights in so that we could really enjoy the Hotel 41 experience which included watching a film in the jacuzzi bath (not together!) and the 'plunder the pantry' (together!) which is the complimentary goodies served from 8.30pm - 1.am; smoked salmon, pate, individual shepherds pie's, bread, cheese etc and the honesty bar. On our last night we chatted until 1am in front of the fire before our last sleep in the mammoth uber king size bed. We were enjoying it so much that we stayed on for an extra night. Of course now it is hard to imagine staying anywhere else and i would rather go here once every 2 years than have 4 stays elsewhere in the same time period. The standards of service are extremely high and all the breakfasts and other meals we had in our rooms were delicious. We enjoyed meeting a number of the staff and learning about their backgrounds and how they had come to Hotel 41 and found them all friendly, sincere and conscientious, a credit to the team. The housekeeping staff were also lovely and the turndown service meant coming home to a lit fire, soft music, candles and little treats. They really did make it the trip of a lifetime for us. I might start saving now for my 50th! Hotel 41 was the best choice. I visited the Royals and then got treated like one!
