We stayed at The Stafford which is in the heart of St James's but just off the beaten track. The hotel staff are warm and welcoming and the decor of the hotel is very 'homely', yet modern. We stayed in a Queen sized room on the second floor of the main house, but there are other options in The Mews or in the Carriage House (part of the old stable block).
When you look at 5* hotels in London, some are overly priced and a bit in your face with either too much bling, or very 'old style' decor, but this wonderful gem is discreet and felt very 'homely' with a warm intimate atmosphere. The food and overall service provided by the staff is excellent just as you would expect from this level of hotel.
Would we return back again? This is one hotel that is definitely worth a return visit.
