myself and partner spent a night here, and it was amazing. Our room was really nice, with the biggest, most comfortable bed ever! especially loved the walk in shower.... we ordered breakfast to be delivered to our room, and were not dissapointed! smoked salmon with cream cheese on crumpets, bacon with syrup and pancakes, venisson sausages, coissants, coffee, well, all i can say is absolutely fantastic! and it was all presented so well.staff were exceptionally friendly, and we felt very welcomed. it was so quiet and peaceful here, we almost forgot we were in London. Perfect location, especially if you are going to the Theatre/ Soho, clubs and nice restaurants. (we walked to all) we didnt eat in the hotel restaurant, but we did have a drink in their bar (the American Bar) which was very nice (although a little expensive) if you are thinkimg of visiting this hotel, then do it....you wont be dissapointed, highly reccomended....

Spent 1 night at the Stafford over the weekend and I have to say that it is by far the best hotel that I have ever stayed in. It's luxurious and classy without being stuffy and pretentious.
We stayed in a junior master suite in the courtyard. Our room was fitted with the highest quality fixtures and fittings and consumables. The bed was huge and comfortable and there were so many nice touches (Magazines/Compliemtary Papers/Soft Drinks/WiFi/Sky TV).
The American bar is great for a pre/post-dinner drink and is decorated with some really interesting artefacts, and the breakfast was suitably impressive. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. Yes, it is expensive, but it is definately worth it. We will definately stay here again (and we live in London!)

We stayed here on the lead up to Christmas and it was very special. The decorations made it feel very Christmassy and walking out from the American Bar through the news was very "ole worlde". Rooms were lovely and clean and the lunch we had in the restaurant was very good . Nice for a special occasion.

I have just returned from spending a night at the Staffod Hotel and WOW, not only it is well located in St James but it is beautifully furnished, the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble.

It has a nice bar, called the American Bar which again had great service and a good atmosphere.
Our stay was faultless, give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Stayed here for work for one night. Rooms on the small side but lovely and very comfortable. The hotel itself looks fantastic inside. The American Bar is particularly interesting. Lots of history. However the best by far was the service. The staff were all very helpful, kind, attentive and professional. They make you feel special. Very rare in my experience.

Thank You very much for the great review!

As The Stafford is a non purpose built hotel, the rooms all very in layout and design which, as you have mentioned,certainly adds to the charm. I am thrilled to learn that our team has taken very good care of you as they do take pride in their guest orientated service!

I am looking forward to welcoming you back 'home' to The Stafford very soon!

I'm sorry - I saw an earlier review recommending the Connaught as an alternative which is entirely missing the point of this superlative hotel. The service & rooms are exceptional & the point is it's hidden away in St James & not many people know it's here. There are reasons a well known media mogul who has a flat opposite goes here are - it's entirely discreet, has wonderful service & frankly thank god it's not the Connaught.

Thank You for your delightful feedback!

I sincerely appreciate your comment as The Stafford is an exceptional establishment, hidden away from the hectic streets of London, it is a 'home away from home' for many. This is an appeal that is hard to maintain for many hotels and I am thrilled that our team is striving to achieve this element.

I appreciate your patronage to the Stafford and I hope to welcome you back very soon!
