“A Small Treassure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Egerton House Hotel is a small, intimate charming hotel in the most perfect and lovely area of the city, Knightsbridge.It is within walking distance to museums, fabulous shopping and wonderful pubs and restaurants.
The staff could not have been more accomodating and anxious to help in any way possible.
The hotel itself is beautifully appointed and the rooms are immaculate, furnished impeccibly and filled with every necessity. They seem to anticipate every need.
Breakfast is quite lovely and delicious and accomodates every palate.
On our second trip back we were welcomed like family.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else in London!

This was our fourth stay at Egerton House and, again, our expectations were met and surpassed! A hidden gem, a tranquil retreat just around the corner from Brompton Road in thriving Knightsbridge. I could write volumes about the excellence that this property eminates. The location is perfect for a visit to London and from the moment you enter into the front reception area you are swept away by the warmth and attention to detail that is the hallmark of the service provided. Accommodation is superb with high-end, decorator level decor, comfortable beds and luxury toiletries. Morning coffee service arrived in what seemed like mere minutes from making the call. The bar experience at Egerton is like none other - an intimate setting with a great choice of wines and light food - always delicious. In the end its the people who work there that add the finishing touches - gracious, thoughtful - anticipating your every need. Indeed, Egerton House Hotel and its people, Rock Stars, all!

My wife and I had the great pleasure of spending 3 nights at the Egerton House Hotel during our 35th wedding anniversary trip to England and France. I will tell anyone and everyone, that of all the Hotels we stayed in, we both agreed that Egerton was the most comfortable place we stayed, in terms of feeling at home even though we were so far away. The room was impeccably clean. The bath tub and shower were excellent. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The location, relative to shopping and touring of central London, was perfect. We will,of course, chooose to stay at the Egerton House when we return for our next visit. Thanks to all the staff for your help and care during our stay at your Hotel.

Egerton House Hotel is situated a short distance from the busy Brompton Road but you would not know it from staying inside. Quiet and elegant, with attentive staff and a full range of services and amenities, it is a wonderful base for a visit to London. You're within walking distance of Kensington Gardens, the Victoria & Albert, Harrods and many fine restaurants. Staff helped solve a dining problem. A bartender came up with a brand of whiskey not available our first night. By London standards, the price was very reasonable. Our room, though nicely appointed, was small. The internal doorway served no purpose and kept getting in the way. Itmight be worth paying a bit more for a larger room but, otherwise, the Egerton is an excellent choice.

Dear Guest,

Thank your for your feedback on The Egerton House Hotel and I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are indeed very centrally located in a quiet residental area but close to shops, the Victoria & Albert Museum and many other attractions and some of the best restaurants in town.

Being that the property was originally two town houses the rooms do vary in size and all are individually decorated.

I am pleased to hear that our bartender sourced the brand of whiskey for you. We do pride ourselves on going the extra mile to make sure our guests go away with good memories.

I will pass you kind comments to all the team and we do hope we wil have the pleasure of welcoming you back to The Egerton House Hotel on a future visit.

Warm regards,

Michelle Devlin

Our fifth visit to Egerton House was the best ever. The gourmet martinis and full bar service, the cornucopia of outstanding food at breakfast, prompt and friendly room service...not to mention the well stocked mini bar in the rooms...when it comes to food and drink, Egerton House stands with the best.
Personal service is above and beyond what anyone would expect. I refer to Egerton House as the Downton Abbey of London! Whether it was getting medicine for my husband, finding the best cleaners for my clothes (they had been ruined by housekeeping on our cruise line), booking reservations at the most popular restaurants, providing airport transfers, offering an excellent map of the city and suggestions on how to get around, Egerton House was at the ready to take care of all our needs.

Location, location, location! Egerton House is ideally suited. In upscale Knightsbridge, the hotel is easy walking distance to many excellent restaurants, boutique shops, and pubs. Egerton House is a half a block from Brompton Road, a major thoroughfare with 2 tube (underground) stations close by: Knightsbridge and South Kensington. These stations and connecting routes will take you anywhere you want to go in London. And last but not least, Egerton House is just a couple of blocks from Harrod's, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum, and the Natural History Museum.

Accommodations at Egerton House are quiet, roomy, airy, and decorated with tasteful elegance. The sitting room and bar are cosy and charming. Guests as well as staff are friendly. I have stayed there alone as well as with my husband and felt very much at home in either situation.

Stay there! You will not be disappointed!

I had the pleasure of staying at The Egerton House Hotel recently and I was so impressed with its superiority in all areas. I have traveled a lot in my life, but The Egerton House exceeded all past hotel experiences and I cannot wait to return. The staff is so attentive and charming which gives this hotel a feeling of personality outside of his British glamour. Mauro at the front desk was not only incredibly helpful but so pleasant to speak with. No question was too much. I will definitely be visiting the hotel again and I intend to tell all my friends of it. Perfect, perfect, perfect.
