I continue to have great appreciation for TripAdvisor--we found the Egerton House through TripAdvisor and what a GREAT tip that was!
The Egerton is a perfect small luxury hotel.
First, the location is great, just off Brompton Road, only a few steps away from great restaurants (try The Good Earth and Brompton Quarter), Harrods, bus stops, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Tube. But it is on a quiet residential street, offering a nice respite from the city's bustle.
Next, the decor of the hotel (from reception, lounge, bar, and dining room to the bedrooms) is elegant and inviting in every detail. Our deluxe king bedroom was beautifully appointed and packed with everything we could possibly need-- down to Scotch tape and scissors in the desk drawer--or want, including candles on the bathtub at night and an Ipod with our choice of music. (Ipods are available at the Reception desk.)
Third, the staff was splendid. They were friendly, quick to remember your name and ask about your day, ready to talk or to do anything you needed, but not hovering. They were THERE, but not in your way. In short, they offered ideal service.
Lastly, the food was delicious. There was a wide range of cooked and cold items for breakfast and everything was prefectly prepared. I agree with the earlier reviewer who suggested that poached eggs was a good test for a restaurant and the Egerton passed that with flying colors. The Eggs Benedict and even porridge were superb.
One caveat--because the hotel is small, tables and chairs in the lounge and bar may be hard to come by. Go early if you want to be sure of a place to sit. And, oh yes, the martinis are just as good as advertized--and they are prepared beside your table in quite a show! I wish I were enjoying one right now....
Both my traveling companion and I agreed that the Egerton House is a treat we certainly hope to give ourselvesf again soon.
