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.

Good service, decent sized room with everything needed and a lovely location on the river. Due to the layout of the building our view was obscured on one side. Luck of the draw with this I guess. Some elements of the bedroom felt as though they could use a refresh. Overall, a good stay and would come back.

Stayed at the Sea Containers London SouthBank for 7 nights from July 12th. We had some issues when we checked in but Amy from the management team was super helpful and everything was sorted to our satisfaction. We had the most wonderful week, a great room, great service and a really nice group of staff. We tried the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. We tried both the ground floor bar and the one on the top of the building, both were fun venues. The hotel is in a unique location, the room was lovely, the staff really helpful and the whole experience first class. Thank you to Amy and the team at the Sea Containers for a wonderful experience.
