This hotel is a wonderful little gem tucked away behind Buckingham Palace. The location is good for seeing a few sites as well as exploring a nearby neighborhood with small shops and a great Pub. My husband and I like smaller boutique hotels and this one fits the bill. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. When we arrived after the usual long flight we were settled in the lounge with tea while we waited. There are lovely gardens on the back side of the hotel and we enjoyed sitting outside (even in winter)! The room was very nicely appointed with a beautiful bathroom and tub. The bed was a cloud of comfort with soft and cozy linens. We also enjoyed the restaurant very much and would highly recommend it even if you are not staying there. The service, food, and ambience were all top notch. THe only bit of detracting element is that the public spaces could use some updating (carpet, lamps, some of the furniture), It's a family owned and run hotel and the staff. even today. seemed to light up when mentioning that "Mr. Goring" had just been by. I would suggest to Mr. Goring that a little updating and money spent in the lounge area would really make this hotel shine.
