just superb. no gimicks or over use of I.T. this is just like staying at a friend's luxurious townhouse whilst they are away with full staff in residence. the location is 2nd to none and yet whilst so centrally located, there is a peace and quiet you don't get with most hotels in this area. i've not tried the food but the menu looks great. i've given up my pied a terre in london and shall just stay here from now on. don't change a thing!

This was the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in, and the most perfect. I Stayed in the Ellen Terry room, which is tiny but so exquisitely beautiful. and when you think about it, there is room for everything. the bed is tucked into an alcove behind the cupboard, and at the foot of the bed there is a cupboard with a safe in it, and the TV above it. A full size bathroom, with a wonderful bath, off to the side saves the room from feeling cramped. The decor is warm and gorgeous. A welcome gift of homemade short bread, and a teddy on the bed provide a loving feeling for the traveller missing home.
Afternoon tea, happy hour, and late night hot chocolate are provided in the guest lounge that backs onto a lovely garden.
Location is good just of the Kings road and near to the underground station.
Finally found a wonderful place to stay in London.

An excellent hotel, well situated in a quiet area near Sloane Square in Chelsea, within a short walk to underground and buses. The Draycott has a homey atmosphere and a very friendly and attentive staff.

Overall, an amazing stay!!! :) I stayed in a Queen room, and it was huge, with a wonderful big bathroom, and extremely comfortable. The staff are all amazing and helpful; very detail oriented, and quick service.

This was my second visit to the Draycott and I cannot fault either stay. I was given a warm welcome by the concierge and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. I stayed in the Redgrave and the Barrie, both single rooms. The rooms are small, but so comfortable and both had a huge, spotlessly clean, bathroom. And the underfloor heating was fantastic during a cold February.

Breakfast is served on the lower ground floor in such a peaceful room. Fresh toast and coffee is served quickly and the continental buffet is just scrumptious !

It is such a great location, close to Sloane Square tube, and the shops of Chelsea's King's Road, as well as good pubs and restaurants - try the Antelope pub in Eaton Terrace.

Next time I'm in London, I'll definitely stay at the Draycott.

The hotel has a very convenient and quiet location with beautiful grounds. Service is of the highest standards with attention to detail and the staff is extremely polite.The deluxe room is very comfortable, with great beds and pillows, and we absolutely loved our gas fire place which made the room so homely.

This was my first stay at the Draycott and I'll be back.

It's a charming and quiet establishment, service exemplary and staff made me feel very welcome.

The location is fantastic with many great restaurants on the doorstep and I had a wonderful nights sleep.
