What a great location! Restaurants, cafes and the tube nearby The staff bend over backwards to be helpful! The decor in the room was lovely, the bed amazing. My single occupancy room was very tight though, i would book a larger room next time. They provide wonderful bath products making me feel that I was in a very lucurious space. I will return.

Room Nbr 1 - bad room - it's on the level -1 near the staff room - doors slamming from 6 a.m. all day long; views to the next room, in a step away. Not good...
Of course it's a Firmdale Hotel, so it is in a global perspective good. Breakfast was very good.

Rooms are gorgeous, the bar is intimate and beautifully decorated and the food is simple and tasty. If noise bothers you then ask for a room upstairs as sometimes you can hear the tubes pass under you in the lower rooms.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on a special rate - it was still £315/night which included breakfast!!!
The room was a 'deluxe' room was quite small. Don't bring much to hang up as really limited hanging space. However beautifully decorated and VERY clean. The bed in our room was very comfortable and the shower was wonderfully powerful and VERY clean. The staff in the restaurant where very attentive and gave excellent service. Of note though- they automatically take 12.5% tip so don't add on extra!!! The evening meal was delicious though very expensive with a lot of things being 'extra' in price. The 'honesty' bar is also VERY expensive. £11 for a measure of laguvalin whiskey!!!!!!!
The main bug bear and really wound both my husband and myself up was the lack of warning re extras! Don't have a second glass of orange juice at breakfast - will cost you extra as will a second round of tea, coffee or toast EVEN though you have paid in your rate for breakfast. There are NO tea/ coffee making facilities in the room which considering the cost of the room is very disappointing but it's another way to charge you extra- £8.58 for tea for 2 in your room!!! So frustrating.
However the wifi is ultra fast and useful for downloading the new series of dr who and writing trip advisor reviews!!!
All in all- lovely hotel but watch those sneaky extra charges!

Our usual 5* hotel in London has become too expensive, so tried Dorset Square. What a great find. Exemplary service in every way, all staff were attentive and friendly. The cricket connection is quirky but adds character. Breakfast(included in room rate) a real plus.
For a quiet and comfortable stay in London near Marylebourne station, jtry this hotel, you will not be disappointed.

I am almost loathed to write this as I want to always have a room here but I cannot fault the Dorset Sq. The decor is amazing (well done Kit Kemp) and each room is unique and fabulous. The potting shed breakfast is clean, fresh, healthy and delicious. The only thing I would like to see is the addition of the Vegan breakfast that is offered in other Firmdale hotels. The turndown service, gift and choice of paper all add to the hotel and the service every time I have stayed has been attentive and kind. A really lovely london hotel with charm, character and style to boot.

My rating is based upon my expectations. The small touches were superb. The food was excellent. The staff were very attentive and friendly. But it's a premium hotel and that isn't matched by the size of the room, which is small, even by London standards. So small that there isn't room for tea/coffee facilities, no ironing facilities and limited table space so that room service food has to be eaten on the bed. The bed itself is beautiful.
