What a find (and it does take some finding!!). Hidden away in a cul-de-sac in the St James area of London the hotel gives excellent access for theatres, restaurants and sightseeing but is in a lovely quiet location.
Better than this, it brings back all the olde worlde standards of service and quality that is now so difficult to find. Check in was a delight and included an offer to give us a guided tour of the hotrel before being shown to our room. Our room was super - quality furnishings and decoration, seperate dressing room, excellent marble bathroom and a really comfortable bed.
We had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel and several drinks in the bar. Service throughout was top quality and the food could not be faulted. One short session in the bar was after 5pm so one had to wear a jacket - a very nice touch,
We will certainly return. The hotel is part of the Kempinski chain.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Stafford London is a leading five star hotel in London and defines all that is quintessentially British. Located in the historical neighbourhood of St James's, it is set in a discreet and prestigious location beside the Royal Green Park. Opened as a hotel in 1912 and rich in history since the 1700s, it offers luxurious rooms and dining with an award winning, personalised guest service. The famous American Bar with floor to ceiling memorabilia and 380-year-old wine cellars are a sight to behold. Make sure to ask for a tour of the cellars and the in-house museum; the wine cellars doubled as a bomb shelter during WWII. ... more less
