I booked a surprise stay for my girlfriend last Wednesday night (6th August) for our 1st anniversary, and got a great deal on booking.com. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty by Sergio and the team. The Kings Suite we had was spotless and luxurious. A special thank you must be said to Alex and Slizard who were the gracious hosts to us in the Library for the happy hour cocktails! They were faultless and we both really appreciated the way we were treated. We can't thank them all enough!

Sitting in the courtyard in the evening and the following morning really gave it the feeling of being overseas. It felt more like Barcelona than London!

We will definitely be going back again!

Stayed here for my husband's 40th. We got a great deal on lastminute.com. Room was a 2 bed apartment and it was just gorgeous. The comfy beds and Molton Brown toiletries were fantastic. Loved the drinks and nibbles in the evening too. Hope to get another visit soon to 51 Buckingham Gate!!

Visited here for cocktails on Thursday, having no idea what to expect. Walking in from Buckingham Gate it's like entering a different world. It's in a courtyard surrounded by gorgeous architecture with an opulent but tranquil fountain in the middle. I had a Summer Punch, a lovely raspberry, vanilla vodka and champagne cocktail and a pot of tea. The ambience is relaxed, making it a great place to chat with friends over drinks. Staff were courteous and attentive. There is a food menu, which looked appetising. I hope to visit again; perhaps I'll try and persuade my husband I deserve a little luxury as it's pricier than my usual haunts!

Thank you for taking to time to review your recent visit to our 'Secret Garden' for Cocktails.

I was delighted you enjoyed our Architecture, Linking the eight townhouses that surround our courtyard is an endless frieze of figures - carved from the bricks that dance right round the quad - reputedly the longest Shakespearean sylvan frieze in the world. It makes a perfect backdrop for any gathering.

I will pass on your comments to my team.

We hope to welcome you back again soon.

Kind Regards

We stayed here for 4 nights while my husband was on business in London. It was one of the quietest apartments we have stayed in. We had a one bed Kings apartment and the apartment had everything that you needed. The bed was one of the best hotel/apartment beds that we have ever slept in soft but still very comfortable.The service was excellent, people were friendly and very happy to help. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Kings one bedroom was excellent we had the 7th floor so quite

We stayed in a three bedroom villa on property and the experience was fantastic. Historically, we had always stayed in beautiful hotels. Because we were traveling with extended family, our travel agent encouraged us to try this villa. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, there was a full kitchen, w/d and huge living room. It was PERFECT for a family. The service was over the top as was the food. The location was great and near Buckingham Palace and the Underground. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: 6th floor.
