I Have stayed at the RL many times, staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and check in, is super quick and efficient. Bars and restaurants offer great service and choice of food. Although if you order anything cooked for breakfast it can be slow to arrive.

Dear Melinda, Thank you for having taken the time to share a review on Tripadvisor following your recent stay with us. Although I am delighted to see that the service provided by the team has consistently been positive, I am sorry that the breakfast has been subpar on occasion. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the not too distant future, and should you ever require any assistance at all with the making of future reservations, I remain entirely at your disposal. Kind Regards, Alexander Henskens Hotel Manager Ahenskens@royallancaster.com

My wife and I had the pleasure of returning to this wonderful hotel for the first time post lock down (far too long). All too brief for one night but this is one hotel that understands the term hospitality - the hotel looking fabulous, another amazing room, fantastic and best views of London, super efficient, professional, courteous and friendly staff exactly what you want to make a trip to London special. Have always said this is a gem with a great location only minutes away from paddington, across the road from the fabulous Hyde Park and with Lancaster Gate tube on the central line underneath - it doesn't get any better. Highly recommend experience for yourselves.

I stayed here twice. The first time I thought it was already a wonderful hotel with their care, service, and the aesthetics of the room a# well as the overall feel of the place. The second time I stayed, I was even more impressed that they kept on improving even though the hotel was already really good. What I like the most about my stay at the hotel besides the lovely atmosphere and the very pleasant aesthetics of the hotel itself, is that the staff really do seem to care and make sure the guest is satisfied and comfortable. I am impressed that the staff at the hotel seem to always try to improve their service and really pay attention to guests’ needs. It is really one of the few hotels I feel truly comfortable in. The staff are also very kind and thoughtful. They really know how to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. I’d love to stay here again.

This was my best experiences in a hotel hands down. The location was amazing right across from Hyde Park and you get to sit at breakfast by an enormous window that overlooks the serpentine waterway. The hotel staff are all amazing people and you can tell that they love what they do. I cannot fault this hotel in any way my stay was over 6 weeks and every day was wonderful. I felt that I was at the top of their list even when dignitaries were staying there I always had exquisite service. The food at all of the internal restaurants were top class and the breakfast in the Park was always the highlight of my day between the excellent service provided, the view, and the amazing food. Whatever I needed it was always taken care of with a smile and promptly. I wish I could give them 10 stars and whenever I visit London I will definitely be staying at The Royal Lancaster.

Oops another late review following two stays here, one late last year and the other earlier this year. I like this Hotel, a straightforward design, luxurious where it counts, well thought out, very well managed and in a surprisingly good location overlooking Hyde park. Everything they do is well done, very well appointed rooms, nice bathrooms, excellent housekeeping standards, a delightful breakfast service team and overall an excellent team. Will return as we really want to try their famous Thai restaurant. Highly recommend, excellent Hotel.

This Hotel was a 2 night extension booked by our cruise line, so did not know what to expect. Staff was fantastic & accommodating. Located across from Hyde Park provided an amazing view & there were pubs in any direction. The buffet was amazing & kept us full until dinner. Rooms were neat & clean. A little small by US standards but very nice.

First time stayed at this hotel. The location was a bit out to where we wanted but that was my fault. A minute away from Hyde park which was really nice and a 15 minute walk to Harrods etc. the hotel is smaller than I expected but the welcome we got and service was excellent. It’s a real cool hotel and I’m guessing that a lot of the things in reception where the in thing 30/40 years ago but have now evolved and are back in fashion with gold everywhere. Great space. The room was on 7th floor with great views 90 degrees and excellent space. Breakfast we only had once but was very good with every choice possible, the service was exceptional I must say and talkative staff having a chat with you and a giggle, that was refreshing. It isn’t cheap at £29 each plus service charge but great area and food.
