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.

Visited on the 15th December 2020 with a dear friend who took me out to dinner. The service was impeccable and our waiter was called Ishmael. Nothing was too much and from beginning to end he was attentive, polite and prompt. I will definitely attend again and hope that he is my waiter again. Absolutely excellent service and the food was great too. The ambiance was good as social distancing was in place. Next time I’ll request a River front dining spot. We were inside next to the window which was great. Wonderful restaurant. Five stars.

We stayed for the night in December. Room was lovely, great hotel. Booked in for dinner at the restaurant and amazed to see in 2020 not one vegetarian or vegan main course option! The mushroom pasta has Parmesan on. I asked for this to come without but it still came with it all over. Please get some more plant based options on your menu, it’s not just vegans/vegetarians who want these.

We came straight from our wedding and couldn't have been greeted by more welcoming and helpful people. Joe the guest experience manager gave us drinks on arrival, upgraded our room and arranged breakfast for us every morning. In such a rubbish situation with Covid, we have had so much stress this year re arranging our wedding etc and staying here you would bearly notice Covid was still a thing (obviously they have safety measures in place) but apart from that it was such a relaxed, enjoyable experience and so lovely to get away from all that stress and anxiety for a couple of days. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a getaway to London to stay here, we had a beautiful suite that was clean and tidy, all staff were amazing and also they have an app that you can use to book breakfast etc. That was absolutely amazing. Honestly I could not praise them enough.

Stayed at the Sea Containers for one night Saturday 12th Dec 2020. Check in was quick & simple. Baggage taken straight to room while me & my Friend headed to the Bottomless Brunch which we pre booked due to Covid restrictions. The staff was all fantastic, very helpful and kept the drinks flowing while we ate our meal. Great choice on the Menu, the food was outstanding, very tasteful. We booked into the Bar later on in the evening due to limited space because of Covid restrictions but did not disappoint. Rooms was lovely looking over great views of London. Very clean & cosy. Breakfast was amazing. Over looking BlackFrairs Bridge. Didn’t have any problems with my short stay so I would definitely stay here again & also recommend this hotel to others. Really good weekend away Hope to return soon.

This hotel is exactly as described, location is fantastic and the view of the river is beautiful! Room service fulfilled any needs. Will most definitely be returning in the near future. The Lyaness was our favourite!
