We had a very pleasant experience at the Library bar. This was our first time to the bar on occasion of our son’s 20th birthday. We had a charcuterie board , fries and prawn cocktail which was amazing with soft shell crabs and we love the Dalmore sour cocktail, Gasparie Manhattan with Balvenie as base , Irish Vieux Carré with Bushmill as base Raspberry based mocktail Sandro and Georgio who attended to us was very knowledgeable and took good care of us. The ambience was perfect for a laid back classy afternoon amidst the books and old bottles ! Will surely return for the pianist and live songs

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I made reservations for the bar. At first, I was intrigued that we needed to make reservations but after going to the bar, I thought this was a brilliant idea. It’s for this reason - the ambiance, cocktails, food, and service deserve five stars through and through. There is nothing which could be improved upon. Our server, Angel, assisted us with our selections and the cocktails were impeccable. The stemware was completely lovely (these is nothing worse than a superior cocktail in a poorly selected glass - this completely ruins the cocktail). The ambiance in the bar was simply elegant and beautiful. Every detail in the food, cocktails and service left nothing where improvements could have been made. We had the boozy Gaspari Manhattan, Lilibet Cocktail, Rumrunner Old Fashioned, Classic Champage Cocktail, and an Italian wine to go with filet in the peppercorn and brandy sauce. Later, there was a lovely singer and pianist. Simply extraordinary and lovely. Her voice was angelic and the pianist tied the experience together in a neat bow. I would like to call attention to the manager, Mickael Perron, who also checked on us in the most kind and attentive manner. Paul - in the coat room, was also very kind, warm, and attentive - a most generous person with a sincere and kind heart. For those of you who enjoy a truly remarkable experience which caters to all of your senses, then look no further as this is the place to go.

The Lanesborough has been on my London bucket list of hotels for many years. After noticing a great rate, I decided to treat myself for a big birthday! What a fantastic 3 nights. The level of detail is something else. It started with an email a few days prior to arrival asking for preferences such as room temperature, check in/check out times, if I would like a sweet or savoury snack on arrival, what time I would like housekeeping and turndown and if I’d prefer a shower or a bath. So impressive. All my requests were granted. I booked the lead-in level of room, but I was delighted to be upgraded to a Junior Suite. See photos. I was welcomed at the room by my butler who made me feel very welcome by bringing tea/coffee to the room. I enjoyed breakfast in the suite on all 3 mornings. Such a treat. Everything in the room is controlled from an iPad from the opening/closing of the curtains, the control of all the lighting, ordering room service and the removal of the room service tray etc. Very nice. I had a corner room overlooking Wellington Arch on one side and the Peninsula hotel on the other. Triple glazed bedrooms. Super quiet. I never heard a single noise from other rooms in 3 days. Can’t wait to return. Thank you Lanesborough!

Another wonderful visit to the Library bar , service was excellent as always, food and drinks delicious. Special thank you to Efthymia and the team who managed to seat us earlier than we had booked. So many of the team deserve a mention however I don't know all their names , sorry! Efthymia always polite and a pleasure to speak to . Mickael and Angel for making us feel welcome and the bar staff who made a point of popping over to say hello ! Even managed a few minutes with lady Lilibet ! Thank you all , still remains my happy place.

I have travelled the world and been very lucky that I have stayed in the best hotels and eaten there. I have ordered a simple breakfast of just toast in many of these hotels. The best offer you a choice of bread and bring you a few slices,wrapped in a cloth to keep them warm. In the Lanesborough I got one slice cur in half and on a plate and that was it. Grapefruit juice was not fresh and just beginning to turn and go off. Really unimpressed at this price. As I was a guest I couldn't say anything to my host and didn't want o cause a scene.

Dear as101g Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We are sorry to hear that your breakfast experience did not meet your expectations, and we do apologize for the disappointment regarding the toast served, this is certainly not the level of standard we offer here at The Lanesborough. Please do contact the Hotel directly if you wish to discuss it further, Pamela Debattista, our Executive Head of Food and Beverage, will be keen to liaise with you directly. I very much hope that this has not marred your overall experience, and we very much hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards Stuart Geddes - Managing Director

Ive stayed here multiple times, I may have written a review years ago but I can't remember it's been so long. What I love about The Lanesborough is the team's attention to detail. The rooms are beautiful...even the hallways. The spa is in the basement through a corridor and its like entering another world. So peaceful and tranquil. And the dining room - just, magnificent. Probably my favourite stay in the city (alongside The Dorchester).
