“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

A very nice stay that I have experienced in this hotel.
I appreciated the art deco decoration of the entire hotel and specially the suite 505 where I stayed.
The tea for two in the left side restaurant was a delight.
The cigar lounges are a success and I even came back the second night.
The personnel are professional and careful about the customer needs and the Rolls Royce service with one of the concierge was a must.
Usually I stay in the 45 Park Lane, but I’m considering coming back at The Wellesley.

Room Tip: I stayed in very nice suite (505) the bed was excelent, the bathroom very big with a little balcony...

Beautiful designer influenced Art Deco hotel in superb location. Staff are professional, but warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. We had a king deluxe..sumptuous, but a little small..suggest a suite would be better.
Jazz bar, restaurant stylish and comfortable.
But...both cocktail bars where smoking environments...one a cigar club...we will not return unfortunately because we found the smell of smoke permeated the entire hotel. Such a shame for non smokers but great for those who do!

Room Tip: A suite would give you more room...but king deluxe was lovely. Rooms are very quiet.

I'll be honest and say I haven't actually stayed here however I did frequent the cigar bar a few weeks back. I felt compelled to tell everyone how fantastic the bar was and they have an enormous cigar collection. Yes the prices of cigars are far too high as well as the cocktails but it is Knightsbridge so I guess you have to expect that. Definitely worth a visit especially as they didn't get snobby about us smoking our own cigars.

this is a place with beautiful interior. A beautiful hotel with friendly and helpful staff, the rooms were plush and very comfortable, we also enjoyed the heated external terrace areas and the atmosphere of the hotel, and good location a 3 minute walk to Hyde park and 10 minute walk from Buckingham Palace.
Highly recommended

Whether you visit The Wellesley for an overnight stay, a visit to the fantastic Oval Restaurant or for a few drinks in the Cigar Terrace, you are sure to be treated to an amazing experience.

Having returned from a stay for my birthday all I have are positive comments; The concierge was quick to ensure we had the Rolls Royce to drop us off to the theatre, the Chef worked with us to ensure that we had time for dinner before the show (both the sea-bass and venison are highly recommended, though the entire menu is stunning) and on top of this, he had a birthday dessert sent out to me after the meal as well as one sent to my room upon our return from our evening out!

We sampled numerous cocktails in my favourite drinking spot in London (The Wellesley Cigar Garden) and could not fault a single one of them- The boutique size of the hotel meant that there wasn't far to go when staggering back to our rooms, though we couldn't resist having a sneaky champagne follow us up there!
Interestingly, we met non-residents of the hotel who had simply come to the venue to enjoy drinks.

Not to be outshone by dinner, breakfast was equally varied (although we all went for the smoked salmon!) complimented by The Wellesley's Churchill Blend (tea).

All-in-all yet another amazing experience and environment with very attentive staff highly recommended.

From the moment I arrived, I was transported to another time period by the decor and service level that you don't experience just anywhere. A special thanks to Claire (reception), Dmitri (butler), and the 2 chauffeurs (unfortunately I do not have their names).
The location is perfect. The Rolls Royce car service is phenomenal and really made my stay and assisted me getting to meetings. The butler service as well really brought the experience to another level. Loved the Hermes bath amenities and the most comfortable robe and slippers ever! I took the most luxurious bath of my entire life. Thank you, The Wellesley, and keep up the excellent work!

Room Tip: Definitely go for a room with a view of Hyde Park if you can!

Stayed here on Friday 29 th November 2013.From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special . The staff were so lovely and very attentive . We were offered a brief history and tour of the hotel . The art deco theme throughout is stunning and the rooms take your breath away . We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite with a view of Hyde park . Simply stunning suite . Beautiful view especially with Hyde park lit up at night . We dined in the oval restaurant - just delicious . Then soaked up the vibe in the jazz bar . Simply a perfect hotel . It is without fault . If you are coming to London stay here you will not be disappointed
