London, United Kingdom8 contributions12 helpful votes
A family of 4 in much need of a change of weekend scenery in these strange times were given the warmest of welcomes by the staff at The Stafford. From the moment we walked through the door, to the moment we sadly left, we had the perfect stay. With a respectable Covid protocol in place we enjoyed a perfect set up for a family of 4. The American Bar provides the perfect location for a few aperitifs and night caps and with a perfect Sunday lunch in The Game Bird we had the most enjoyable stay. The staff throughout were an absolute delight. Thank you again and we look forwards to returning very soon.

My husband and I visited The Stafford for the night over my birthday weekend. We had a fabulous time. The hotel was immaculate. All staff encounters were spot on, everyone was so helpful. We stayed in junior suite in the carriage houses, the room was beautiful. Equipped with everything we could ever need. It was a much needed break in this unsettling time. The Stafford made me feel safe and comfortable and I cannot wait time return.

We were fortunate enough to choose the Stafford for our recent wedding in London. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we were well cared for during our stay, and their attention to detail was noteworthy. Their concierge, Ned, provided wonderful suggestions to improve the quality of our experience and he managed to track down specific flowers for our bouquet. While we do live in London, we felt like we were a world away due to the service, care, and quality. We are already planning a staycation for the coming month(s).

My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel. The staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful staff we have ever encountered. We will definitely be returning soon. The room was very quiet, the breakfast was lovely and the American bar is a must. During this tough time they are doing a superb job, congratulations

Our son and DIL recently had their wedding reception at The Stafford. It couldn’t have been more magical, even with COVID restrictions. The food, wine and service were exceptional with staff bending over backwards to make it a day to remember. In lieu of dancing, we had wine tasting in their fascinating cellar. From their first meeting with Luca (Restaurant manager), our son and DIL were impressed with his enthusiasm to make the day special, unlike other venues for whom it just seemed routine. In this they absolutely delivered.
