Have stayed at South Place several times this year, initially because my usual business hotel nearby was fully booked. Luckily for me, as South Place has now become my hotel of choice in the City. Yes it is a bit more expensive than I used to pay, but it is definitely worth it. And whilst it is located in the middle of the financial district, it has a different vibe than your average City hotel. Good sized rooms, wonderful bathroom and great guest facilities. Pretty much everything has been thought of - except the provision of coffee / tea in the room, which I agree with other reviewers, is something one would expect at this price (rather than pay for room service I popped across to Pret a Manger for a cup of coffee!).
On one of our visits in July, we stayed over a weekend and did encounter a couple of problems with the Terrace bar being closed for private functions (and no pre-warning) and excessively loud music until 9pm from one event on a Sunday evening, and when trying to prepare for important meetings the next morning, the 'boom,boom,boom' of the music was pretty unwelcome! However, the hotel staff responded well and genuinely wanted feedback to help them improve their customer experience.
To make up for this, on our last night, which also coincided with our wedding anniversary, the hotel management offered us dinner in Angler. We had a wonderful three courses, matched with some amazing wines and now I have become hooked - excuse the pun! Angler is now my restaurant of choice for both business dinners and special meals with friends, when in London, and I have eaten their twice just in the last few weeks. Their Michelin star is well-deserved.
So at the end of the day, what makes South Place special, is the level of service and attention to detail from each member of staff. Thoroughly recommend.
