“Afternoon delight”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

My wife had hankered after Afternoon tea in a quality London hotel, after consulting the Afternoon Tea website, we chose the Corinthia which came highly recommended. It was everything we had wanted, classy , excellent qualit and great customer service. I asked our waitress to chose an unusual tea for me, she chose mange and it was brilliant.
With the inclusion of the champagne made for a great experience , there were no time pressure placed on us to rush through.
It was absolutely excellent but pricey , but you get what you pay for and this was top quality

This hotel is in a wonderful spot. You can literally walk to all the major attractions including St James Park, West. Abbey, Parliament, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, etc. The hotel is extremely luxurious. You will feel like a royal yourself in the spacious rooms, large bathroom and exquisite service and attention to detail

Room Tip: the executive king is exceptional

I decided to drop by ESPA at the Corinthia hotel during a quick business visit to the UK. Having won the top spot in a UK spa ranking, I thought I'd be in for a special treat.

The treatments themselves were truly top notch, but what almost destroyed the experience for me was that someone in a neighboring pod kept banging cupboards all through my massage. Even though I told my therapist to try and tell them to keep it down a bit, it took them about 15 minutes till they were back to that ugly habit!

The whole point of a spa is for you to relax and unwind and, when it comes to that, other places do it better.

The Corinthia London...where does one begin? We have wanted to stay here for a long time and finally made it. In fact we are here just now and I am writing this review from a Deluxe Junior Suite. This hotel is exquisite. It is beautifully presented. The attention to detail is incredible. The standards are unlike anything I have experienced before. I could wax lyrical but what raises The Corinthia head and shoulders above the rest is the extraordinary staff. Nothing is too much trouble, they anticipate your every need and it is all done with a smile and great good grace. This hotel sets the bar and in my opinion deserves to be No 1 on Tripadvisor. I say this as someone who has recently stayed in Hotel 41 - in my opinion there is no compare. Try The Corinthia and every need will be met. Andrew C

Spending a weekend in London staying with family - we decided to spoil ourselves with Sunday Brunch in the Corinthia - with a Jazz Trio to add to the ambience. The service was excellant, presention and taste of food top class - three course menu in the Northall with plenty of choices and a glass of champagne to enjoy. They were very quick to offer me alternative vegetables when I mentioned I had an allergy to those supplied. An overall relaxing, enjoyable afternoon -if a little costly.This hotel is very well positioned for tourist attractions.

Would definately return again and would like to sample the delights of the hotel too!

Thank you for posting a review of your dining experience in The Northall at Corinthia Hotel London. The Sunday Jazz Brunch, with optional free-flowing Laurent-Perrier Champagne is proving to be exceptionally popular with both our resident and non-resident guests. We are delighted you enjoyed your Brunch and experienced exemplary customer service from The Northall team. The location of the hotel is ideal for visitors, with an adjacent transport hub for easy access around the city, and lots of must-see sights with walking distance. We can't wait to welcome you on your next visit, perhaps to experience many of the other excellent facilities the hotel has to offer.

This is a new property, with awesome timeless decor. Even if you don't have the chance to stay here, at least have tea in the central lobby. The room was incredible, the pool/spa was interesting and original, the staff was excellent. If I could rate this hotel with 6 stars, I would. The location of this hotel is also ideal. Great Tube access, and in walking distance to many of the main attractions.

Room Tip: If you end up with a "courtyard view" don't worry it's an awesome courtyard to vie...
