“As Good As It Gets In London”
Reviewed July 22, 2006

Stayed 2 nights during the recent heatwave and will return - it's one of the best. Without going into the details of the stay and to illustrate the hotel's overall quality, the breakfast in room menu is the most versatile I have used and it arrived each morning exactly as specified.

The only snag is that the free newspaper selection seems to be limited as the hotel couldn't supply our choice on either morning despite taking the order.

Cocktails in the bar were yet again far better than some other 'more Ritzy' establishments nearby! The best Bellinis in London without a doubt (we did a sampling of some other places!).

We have just returned from a visit to London and as we had booked a table at Benares restaurant we particularly wanted an hotel in the Mayfair area, as it was we had chosen the warmest weekend of the year and are therefore so pleased that we had booked a night at Dukes Hotel. The hotel is a real home from home, beautifully furnished, extremely clean and with totally efficient air conditioning in our room. The hotel is tucked away in a cool quiet and leafy courtyard, the staff from reception to room service were wonderful and a special thankyou must go to Jana who dealt with my very last minute booking with patience. We had a wonderful nights sleep, delicious tea and biscuits delivered to our room in the morning and luggage and taxis sorted on our behalf. Thank you everyone we will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends

This was our second stay at Dukes Hotel. For the first time our son accompanied us for a short weekend break to London. Having experienced Dukes Hotel once before, there was no question where we would stay this time – of course, Dukes Hotel!!!

We had the feeling we returned home, such a warm welcome awaited us. This feeling continued throughout our complete visit and gave us the impression we where someone special. Although our last stay lies a while back, we were greeted by our names - this is something you do not expect nowadays in our hectic world. At Dukes Hotel one does forget the hustle and bustle of daily pressure and due to the employees the hotel proves to be an astonishing place to be. If possible, this hotel should receive an “Oscar” for excellence in service, ambience and perfection. Karen Marchant, General Manager, can truly be proud of this fabulous boutique hotel and its forthcoming team.

Once again, thank you for a wonderful stay.
