“Perfect Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Celebrated Mrs Cs birthday with afternoon tea for six at the Chesterfield. We enjoyed drinks in the bar beforehand. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Mother in law is a fussy whatsit but even she thought this was perfection, only member of the party disappointed was my daughter (15) who wanted to take Ronaldo home!

I have just departed from the Chesterfield after an unintentionally long stay. After arriving in London from Australia, I had the misfortune to fall seriously ill and spent over a week in hospital. After calling the police to find me when I did not return to the hotel, the manager arranged for some of my belongings to be brought to me in hospital, along with a very thoughtful gift bag with fresh fruit and candy and a card signed by many of the staff. He also arranged for my room to be booked through for the ten days I had to stay in London after being discharged, before I was ruled fit to fly. All of this was handled with no drama or fuss and it was such a relief, in my sadly weakened state, to know all of this was taken care of. When I returned to the hotel, I was basically bedridden for the first week, and the lovely housekeeping staff just cleaned around me, often as I slept. I would wake to find fresh water by my bedside, and clean towels. The room service staff brought me meals and politely ignored my pajamas and shawls and the lovely Lourdes brightened my mornings with her good cheer. When I was finally able to get up and about, the concierge and doormen, and the desk staff (especially Sabine and Sarah) were so sweet and helpful. Really, if you are going to have a life and death experience far away from home, then this hotel is the perfect place to recuperate.

Bouquets of thanks and gratitude all around.

Stayed for one night on business. Lovely hotel. Great bed but room mostly taken up by bed. Nice bar and excellent room service breakfast. Expensive for room but great location and I would stay again if I could get room for reasonable price.

I had never had a high tea in London before and wasn't sure what to expect. The Chesterfield Hotel made my birthday very very special and i would highly reccommend! Nothing was too much of a problem for the staff. Even dietry requirements were catered for without question eg gluten free. We had a fantastic waiter who had good knowledge on the cakes and teas. It was a lovely touch to be given a cake with a candle and for all to sing happy birthday. Also to take cakes home in a lovely box with a flower.
The whole experience was faultless, huge thanks to all staff x

We have had lunch at this hotel before,and it was excellent. So we decided to stay, and it didnt dissapoint, the staff are all very friendly,and nothing was too much. The room was great, and had everything you would need for your stay. I would recomend the afternoon tea, but book before you go, as it gets busy. We had bar snacks in the evening, which is a relaxed atmosphere, breakfast was 1st class, we couldnt fault this hotel, and we will be returning.

We have just spent the weekend at this hotel and can only echo previous comments in that we found our stay excellent. If you can get the weekend break deal it is even better value. This included afternoon tea and a bottle of bubbly and breakfast (I must say I would not pay £22 for breakfast which is the normal rate!!). As others have said, the staff are friendly without being overbearing and the bar is a lovely place to return to after a hard day sightseeing or for a nightcap after the theatre. Will definitely come back for another theatre break. Location is good too - 5 mins walk from Green Park tube.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 7th floor and was exceptionally quiet.

A thoroughly pleasant experience. A friendly welcome on arrival from all staff members. Room was perfect - attention to detail not usually found in hotels (such as scissors, sellotape..!). Only negative was extractor noise outside the window - meaning not possible to open the window at night. Cosy bar - lovely reading room - good quality food. All in all a really good option for staying in a small quality hotel in London..

Room Tip: If opening the window is important ask for a room not backing onto the the fan!
