Me and my partner stayed at Hotel Cafe royal for the night while spending a couple of days exploring the heart of London. This is by far the best Hotel we've stayed in, in the UK. From the moment we arrived, the warm welcome we received from everyone was amazing. Everyone is so lovely and makes you feel settled right away. We arrived at 12pm to drop off our luggage and expected not to be able to check on until 3pm. The receptionist had a look and our room was all ready and we were checked in at 12pm - stunning service! The rooms are flawless, spotlessly clean and we genuinely couldn't fault a thing. We had our evening meal in the Cakes and Bubbles restaurant and really enjoyed this! The staff also in the restaurant we're amazing and couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was gorgeous and I'd recommend going down for this! So much choice from both menus, tea, coffee and fresh juices available too. The lady who served us in the morning was a breath of fresh air and explained everything too us. I didn't catch her name but thank you so much for making us feel welcome! The hotel also stored our bags for us for the day until our train later on that evening with no issues at all. They truly can't do enough for you. From the moment we arrived to collect our luggage, a taxi was ordered and arrived within what felt like 10 seconds and bags put in there for us. To all the staff at Hotel Cafe Royal, thank you so much for a wonderful stay! You're all amazing x

We just had a short weekend staycation to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Thanks Alex in front office for assisting my boyfriend for the room reservation, and all surprises and amenities arrangement. The room, the room service breakfast and spa treatment are great as usual, we've enjoyed a lovely weekend at Cafe Royal. Highly recommended!

Incredibly attentive and welcoming staff to our weekend staycation at the Hotel Cafe Royal. The luxury is a given, but the attention to detail and the pure joy and quality provided by the team is really what set the Cafe Royal apart for us. The night manager, Engin, exceeded our expectation from the very first. phonecall to book our stay. And in addition checked in regularly to meet our needs during our stay. We also highly recommend the afternoon tea in the Oscar Wilde room - Hollie was really a fantastic host to our evening. 10 out of 10!

Being a reluctant "pleasure" traveller within the UK (always default to flying away), Hotel Cafe Royal was booked relatively short notice as an alternative to braving the mass school holiday rush from UK airports. With a 9yr boy in tow, the priority was to make magical memories and the Hotel (as well as what we did/had planned) made for a perfect luxury base. Superb Oscar Suite that is very difficult to fault and equal to what we would have been within in UAE, excellent service levels right from the door team through to reception, breakfast and every team member had dealings with. Afternoon Tea was an experience, endless room service requests made by my boy were fulfilled with charm and friendliness. Even when valet parking was unavailable due to a half marathon event at the time of arrival closing streets, the team met us at the car park to collect luggage and walk to the hotel. Numerous calls before the visit to ensure all taken care of ensured a slick service According to my boy, Zac, we will return! There can be no greater accolade!

We had our wedding at the Hotel Café Royal in the Pompadour Ballroom. The wedding was everything we asked for, and the service and venue were perfect. Ellie saved our day and helped us plan and execute the day flawlessly. Without her professioalism, it wouldn't have been the same. Can highly recommend Ellie and Hotel Café Royal for anyone who's looking for a grand experience.
