Egerton House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 5, 2010

My wife and I found ourselves stranded in London (which I usually avoid) in the recent volcanic ash debacle, and managed to get a room at Egerton House for one, then two, and ultimately 12 nights. Delightful boutique hotel, wonderfully positioned at Knightsbridge near Harrods, V&A etc - but so quiet! Rooms each distinctively decorated but the great strength of the hotel was its staff. From reception, to breakfast, to bar, to housekeeping - all eager to please, and very supportive. Provided spaces for myself and wife to work, assisted with internet and printing but overall gave a sense of genuine welcome that isnt often found. Looking forward to our next global calamity.

This was my third stay at the Egerton House Hotel in London over the years, and it once again proved to be the "best first choice" for visits to this incredible city. It is not one of London's giant hotels. It's more like a little jewel box hotel where the staff seems to know you and treat you like friends of the family. There are not many rooms, so plan ahead to be sure you can book it. There are plenty of restaurants right around the corner on Brompton Avenue, plus two of London's greatest museums (the natural history museum, and the Victoria & Albert are just a stone's throw away).

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night, and it was absolutely amazing! We had afternoon tea and some champagne in the bar! The staff was so helpful and attending which made our stay amazing and very special! A big thank you to all the wonderful staff who made our stay amazing, nothing was to much for them.

We recently stayed at Egerton House for 5 nights (my husband + 8 yr old son). Apart from the excellent location (easy walking distance to either Knightsbridge or South Kensington Tube station, V&A Museum, National History Museum and Harrods), the property is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are well appointed with a coffee machine, ipod docking station (they will lend you an ipod if you don't have one), beautiful fluffy white bathrobs and big fluffy towels, choice of sparkling and still mineral waters that are replenished daily, a great bathroom with a flat screen TV, great little night lights that come on in the dark, lovely toileteries and a lovely little bath pillow to relax in the tub. Turndown service is something too - apart from the chockies left on your pillow, a candle is lit in the bathroom to help relax you in the tub - really nice. Breakfast is included in the rate and you can either eat in the dining room or have room service - the choice is very good. Antonio the barman is very entertaining and a nightly drink in the bar should be mandatory. The real star(s) at this property though is the staff. Everyone is so genuinely customer service focused and are friendly but not familiar. The staff couldn't do enough for us and made our stay the most enjoyable we have ever had in London. We highly recommend this property to you.

If you are looking for restaurant options try Old Brompton Road, South Kensington (about 10 mins walk) - great selection of cuisine and good prices. As we had an 8 year old with us we tried the Gourmet Burge Kitchen one night - great food and good service + good prices and a pub on another night. Another good choice if travelling with kids is Cafe Rouge (located just behind Harrods) - good set price menu and great choices for kids without costing a fortune. There was also a great little italian restaurant/cake shop we ate at just round the corner from Egerton House which was also fabulous and not too expensive. Great coffee and italian cakes(all displayed in the front window) and they make excellent pizza (of course!). Marks and Spencer Simply Food is also round the corner if you want light snacks.

We splashed out one night and went to Zuma in Knightsbridge. Great modern Japanese cuisine - a really buzzing place (all the beautiful people go there after 9pm - so be sure to book well in advance). Service here was also fabulous - check out their website for details.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend for my birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The staff make you feel very welcome and the decor of the hotel was beautiful. One of the poshest hotels that I have stayed in. Our double room was nicely sized and quiet. We had breakfast and room service whilst there and found the food to be although pricey, well worth it after a day's sightseeing.

The location is good, very easy to get around London. Quite close to all the attractions including the theatres, the main purpose of our stay.

All in all, a very good choice. Would definitely recommend it and would stay there again happily.

This was my second stay at Egerton House, and once again, it was delightful. The rooms are lovely, and the service is excellent. Everyone treats you as a friend and is most solicitous of any needs you may have, anticipating them before they may be a thought in your own head! When traveling for business, this is a wonderful place to come back to. I never want to stay at another place when I am in London.
