My husband and I booked a rare night away from the children and we were blown away by the quality of service and standards throughout the hotel. From the friendly concierge who made us feel special from walking through the door, to the front of desk staff who upgraded our room to the most amazing suite FOC, and not forgetting the thoughtful staff at breakfast who were extremely helpful. The COVID-19 safety measures were adhered to with care and respect throughout. Even our visit to the gym felt safe with strict aderehance to numbers and sanitation stations. We had dinner at Quilon which was the icing on the cake for what turned out to be the most loveliest of weekends. All in all the staff went above and beyond during a very tricky time and made us feel very special. We look forward to returning soon.

We spent one night at the hotel, booked last minute. The hotel is smart and clean, well situated for central London and many attractions. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, in particular Beata on reception. The room was quiet, very clean and well presented, breakfast was excellent. Would highly recommend.

A last minute getaway, in between covid restrictions. Hotel building is absolutely stunning. The courtyard on a warm evening is incredible to sit in. Rooms are top quality with all needs catered for. Staff were very attentive. It felt very safe in these strange covid times. They made us feel special on our wedding anniversary to.

Stayed here for a couple of nights to attend a wedding in London. Spotlessly clean, spacious room, stunning courtyard, attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, would recommend the full English.

Staff are very attentive and welcoming. In particular Daniele at concierge was very very helpful and helped us find amazing restaurants to dine at and booked them too! The in room dining team needs to be more trained in taking orders and delivering room service on time. We had our breakfast orders delayed and items missed out on both days. Beata and Tatiana were also very kind and always ready to welcome us and play with our child!
