What can i say other than wow,amazing gorgeous spendid etc.
This Hotel is the best I have stayed in.
From the moment you step out of the taxi by the entrance you are treated like royalty. It now has the Royal Warrant and deserves it. The Duchess of Cambridge and her family stayed here before her marriage to Prince William.
The reception staff from the concierge ( very helpful gentleman in the bowler hat at the door) to the check in and out staff were very attentive and welcoming beyond anything i have experienced before.
As for our 'Spendid Room' as it was called it was indeed spendid, it was large and had a patio/balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the view of the garden (unfortunately it was very cold so we didnt use it) We had an enormous bed and the bathroom was wonderful with a full size bath 2 wash basins and a seperate walk in power shower.Unusual TV arrangement it appeared out of the dressing table at a touch of a button. In fact everything was controlled by several button panels including the curtains and lights and heating.There was only one thing missing a trouser press unless it was there and i missed it. Unusual novelties were the sheep, the sheep footstool was lovely and the small sheep on the bed was cute.
The breakfast was delicious freshly prepared and an extensive menu and the waiting staff were very attentive.
We had drinks and lunch in the Bar which was excellent.
This hotel is a perfect location for the use of the Victoria station and underground plus its a short taxi ride into the West End and Buckingham Palace is very close as are many of the attractions which London is famous for.
There are several theatres within walking distance and I can recommend Billy Elliot on stage.
