Set within the Sea Containers building - originally designed by acclaimed American architect Warren Platner - on London’s South Bank, the hotel boasts 359 guest rooms and suites, Sea Containers restaurant serving up fresh modern cuisine, an award-winning experimental cocktail bar spearheaded by master mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana, and an exclusive rooftop bar with panoramic views over the River Thames. Designed by Design Research Studio under the creative direction of visionary Tom Dixon, Sea Containers London is also home to a maritime-inspired 56-seat cinema and spa. Inspired by the golden age of ocean cruising, a time when exotic ingredients were introduced to the world, and an abundance of fresh local produce was celebrated, the three distinctive food and drink venues each offer a dynamic experience. Flavourful dishes range from nourishing to hearty at Sea Containers Restaurant, which is perfect for an al fresco lunch by the river, sunset cocktails or an atmospheric dinner. Experience innovative cocktails in the award-winning Lyaness, voted as one of the top 50 World’s Best Bars, featuring a signature electric blue seating as well as the original sweeping green marble bar. Take in panoramic views of the London skyline from our rooftop bar 12th Knot, with its beautifully appointed lounge and outdoor terrace for unrivalled views over the River Thames.

Had a great time, the staff were brilliant and really looked after us. We were upgraded to a suite which was fantastic. The breakfast was really nice, I couldn’t fault anything about this hotel and would highly recommend it.

Stayed at Sea Containers and had a fabulous 1 night stay visiting family in London. Debora on reception was welcoming, friendly and ensured we had all the necessary information to make the most out of our stay. Many thanks to Victor Wareborn Front of House Manager at Sea Containers for his assistance in making our stay so memorable. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The location is fine but the whole experience was a bit underwhelming. We booked 3 rooms for several days for a family get together. Design is nice, rooms are small but that is normal for London. No room service menu, no bathrobes, TV control missing, problems with Wifi , no storage in room if you have a lot of luggage. Just small things but all together a bit irritating. Not much warmth from staff at reception, any of the bars or in the restaurant,. At times felt the atmosphere was about as friendly as being at a train station passing through. We would probably not stay here again.

We had a wonderful overnight stay, the team were excellent and we were really well look after. Dinner and cocktails were fab, and the breakfast was amazing. Both myself and my niece were very happy with our stay. It's an excellent location too. The sunset and views from 12th Knot were amazing on the longest day of the year.

Honestly, I cannot remember the last time I was so pleasantly surprised by a hotel booking. The staff were SO much more professional, helpful, and informative than anywhere else I’ve stayed post-covid; the room was beautifully designed, all tech was cutting-edge, and the room service menu was wonderful and all orders were delivered promptly. Lastly, every department from the phone operators to house keeping over-delivered each time I asked for help. TRULY, the training program at Sea Containers must be head and shoulders above most of their competition. Ps I’m ALMOST afraid I’ll never be able to find availability once everyone else realizes just HOW wonderful a stay at SCs will be……..

We love the location and the room we have but always feel like we are more a hinderance rather than a paying guest when dining or asking for things out of the ordinary. Like a cup of coffee at 10:30 on the terrace. The food and beverage selection is big hotel big selection but with little flexibility. Wouldn’t recommend but I would stay again just for the location
