Went to London to celebrate company year end, booked : three-course dinner at the The Waldorf Hilton London. Food was beyond expectation, had carpaccio with Waldorf salad (of course), followed by halibut with lemon butter source, deconstructed cheese cake and cheese board. Fabulous experience, un wavering service. One of our guest had rib eye and kept requesting hollandaise. Even after the third time provide as professionally as the first, without making him feel bad. Also was good value for money and definitely will go back again for a show and dinner etc. After dinner we went to the cocktail lounge and were met by the most attentive and skilled host I have every met (*I travel extensively through my company and am used to good service) "Herman" is the bench mark of the quality of staff/service and quality on offer at The Waldorf Hilton London. You feel welcome and his options/suggestions for drinks were perfect and new to us. Loved him, must go just to meet him. Thanks all be back soon, well done keep up the standard, this is how hotels, dinner and service should be, friendly and just the right amount of interruption from the doorman, reception and waitress to the cocktail host. gave us a unique and luxurious experience not found easily these days.

Hotel's Favorite
In this time of Covid to be honest I'm always nervous about hotel stays, however this hotel has everything in place for the safety of its guests. (Clean Stay. full information on the Hilton site) This excellent historic hotel is located at the Aldwich in the heart of London's theatre land just a few minutes walk from Covent Garden. The hotel was built in 1900’s and over the years has undergone some major refurbishments. In the last 20 years it has been modernised, and refurbished whilst still keeping the original art deco feel. The rooms are larger than many hotels in London beautifully appointed and well equipped with A/C, TV, bath and shower etc. Upon arrival I received a glass of fizz and a warm welcome from Helena @ reception . From the moment we arrived to the time we checked-out the service was exemplary. I had checked in online before and my room was beautifully prepared. As a diamond member I received a room upgrade to the most exquisite room, my only complaint is there was no proper coffee machine in the room with only instant coffee, The executive lounge is closed because of Covid, and the executive facilities are quite restricted at the moment. The hotel is offering a bottle of wine your room for diamond members. The Bar currently has a limited menu which is reasonably priced. There is a set Menu in the Homage Restaurant which is quite limited. Breakfast is Excellent and the staff go above and beyond to make guests welcome. A full breakfast service is available with a chef on duty preparing omelettes, eggs etc. catering for the most fastidious tastes. A pleasant stay overall. Whilst the room’s and service of a high standard, the current catering facilities leave a little to be desired. If you are looking for luxury break in London I can recommend this Hotel if only for its location, and the excellent service.

We stayed last weekend (14/15 Jan 22) with friends and had a brilliant time. The hotel was great, the rooms very comfortable, breakfasts were lovely. We had use of the Exec Lounge and were looked after very well indeed in there. As ever, good staff in the hotel make a stay very enjoyable and the Waldorf's great staff didn't disappoint. A shout out for the friendly doormen who always made us smile, the lovely lady in the Exec Lounge and most of all for Herman in the bar, who, though rushed off his feet, made time for us, always had a smile and clearly enjoyed his job very much. Thank you Waldorf.

We stayed for two nights in January and had a wonderful time at this hotel. We were room only and went out for breakfast, there are options out there. Situated at the heart of the theatre district, Mamma Mia is on the next corner, we walked to the Adelphi for a show, Theatre Royal Drury Lane just nearby and a very short walk to Covent Garden. There are some really nice pubs, bars and restaurants all around, within a short walk. We arrived at 12, hoping to leave our luggage however our room was ready. Really nice room, we had upgraded, very clean with a seal on the door. There is a cocktail lounge called Good Godfreys as part of the hotel and as we were going out for a special meal we tried one, £29 for two cocktails. The cocktail, a house special was very good indeed. The staff are very friendly and helpful, in all areas. We tried the pool and the sauna, worth a visit. A very well situated classy hotel,

Everything is a little old but very clean, lovely atmosphere and history everywhere. Loved the executive lounge and the table service - what a treat. Delightful lady, who made us very welcome, we didn't need to move unless we wanted to.... We had a room about as far from the lift as it could be with no view to outside street only over the internal area. This was fine but again showing its age. Had lunch in the bar, again the service was excellent. Would recommend for a slice of history, but you will need deep pockets!!
