Small and intimate hotel, very friendly staff, Drabble's restaurant very good

First, Spacious room with large balcony allowed enjoyment of London's lomg summer evenings. Secondly, Mr Drablle's cooking at the elegant and quiet restaurant with outstanding service by the staff. Thirdly, ongoing warm welcomes from the Concierge team. Fourthly, frequent use of the Bar area with Read more[SPLIT]Read lessattentive service. Fifthly, the location of the hotel: quiet and extraordinarily well located. In short, a constant feeling that this was good value ,, well run and with lots to offer.

Lovely hotel and welcome.

The staff were lovely, friendly and could not have been more helpful. The hotels location was superb and in easy walking distance of all the central london sites and galleries.

Perfectly placed boutique hotel

Excellent hotel, great location but oh so quiet as it is located at the end of a no through road, lovely staff who couldn't have been more helpful in every respect. Very comfortable room with excellent amenities.

Charming, quintessential London / Mayfair

Lovely to finally return to London on business and stay in my favorite part of London. The one thing you need to fix is the internet: in room 502 it is intermittent and dismally slow. The port selection at the bar is exceptional which makes up for the slow WiFi :-)

The Place Where You Will Enjoy Staying-In In London!

We reserved a junior suite. It was lovely, in very clean and welcoming condition, and we ended up spending a good part of our time in London in our hotel suite, resting and reading! There were facilities we were not able to use while we were there (e.g. restaurant, room service, leisure), but since Read more[SPLIT]Read lesswe go to the St. James often, we will get to do that on future occasions. We did especially appreciate the knowledgeable, attentive and kind service.
