We booked last minute and were very happy we did. We visited London between Christmas and New Years and loved the city. The hotels location is super to access the underground or even walk to the Big Ben and London Eye! The breakfast in the hotel was yummy although very English style, with maybe a bit more variety needed. The staff was always very helpful and friendly. We really felt comfortable and cozy during our whole stay!

We booked quite late on a website so I did not know what to expect, just glad to get somewhere for New Years Eve. On arrival, the hotel looked charming and all the christmas decorations looked fab. The room had been ready from very early in the morning and my husband had dropped off our stuff. We had been upgraded to a suite on the 6th floor which was excellent, very smart furnishings and fittings with a small outside terrace. We polished off the complimentary champagne and then went down to have some lunch. The American Bar was very quaint and cosy and the staff here were excellent, very attentive bringing extra nibbles when we ran out and the food itself was very good. We returned to our room to get ready and enjoyed a hot shower and treading on the warm marble floors, a lovely touch. Our room was turned down at 6pm and there was water provided and free soft drinks. Also a coffee machine which I personally did not use but other reviews have said there wasnt any, maybe they are only in the suites!

I was sorry to leave and would highly recommend this place which isnt the cheapest but it is nice to treat yourself now and again.

A very nice hotel, in a traditional style.

All of the elements of service, etc that you expect from a 5* hotel, on a smaller scale with a feeling of exclusivety.

Lovely rooms with space and plenty of storage - small niggle would be size of shower cubicle.

Very good service. Great breakfast. American bar is a London tradition for those in the know.

A great alternative to the big name establishments in London, in a great location.

Enjoyed the 4 night stay very much.

From the moment you sit down to check in until the moment you leave, this was just perfect. Quick service, quick room service, a cup of tea, yes it's not expensive or much, but arriving in pouring rain, a bit early, ten minutes waiting with a cup of tea is just what you need, before getting your room. The doorman could be a little bit lighter on his feet, and that is the absolutely only thing, and that is if I'm really picky. Excellent stay. Perfect location for shopping as well. Hope to be back.

we stayed here for 6 nights recently. From the moment we arrived we enjoyed superb service and attention from ALL the staff there - not just certain individuals. Our room was wonderful. Lots of storage space and surfaces - which we needed as we were shopping madly in the week before Christmas! The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas - so cosy and twinkly with trees and fir cones galore. We enjoyed 2 nights at the American Bar - great cocktails, lots of memorabilia and a great ambience. Breakfast was really good too. And we really enjoyed the location - close to Bond Street and Piccadilly.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for something traditional, homely, friendly and convenient. We'll be back!

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for in London. It's location was perfect, convienent to just about everything. We could walk most anywhere to shop or eat in minutes. The rooms were luxurious and comfortable. Very old world and yet with all of the contemporary amenities.
Staff was superb and we more than accommodating! Breakfast and dinner was very good.
We will return!

Situated in a quiet enclave off St James Park this is a gem of a hotel. We stayed one night in a deluxe room. The room was very nice with a large and extremely comfortable bed. The staff in all areas of the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The lady who freshened our room after we left for the evening deserves special mention for her attention to detail. Breakfast was very good with an extensive choice and attentive service. It was a delightful place to stay and I would love to return.
