“40th Wedding Anniversary”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

The current Mrs Catchpole and I stayed in The Savoy for one night only on Sunday 28th April as I had booked early in Oct 2012 the deal included dinner in Simpsons in the Strand restaurant and breakfast. Dessert was served with Happy Anniversay written in chocolate around the edge of the bowl. Our room on the 6th floor was looking directly along the Thames towards the Shard, St Pauls and the Gherkin, illuminated at night it was a wonderful sight! Whilst there we took in the show at the Shaftesbury, 'Burn the Floor' if you are fans of 'Strictly' you will love this.

I can only say it was everything I hoped it would be and was worth every penny, we are saving up to go again now.

Room Tip: Mention you are celebrating something when you book. I could definitely recommend room 630.

I booked a De Luxe King room for a one night stay in April for my husband's 60th. The whole experience was wonderful.

On arrival we were treated like royalty - from the doormen, the lady that took us to our room and gave us a tour, to the man who brought our bag to our room. Every time you pass a member of staff in the corridor, they greet you warmly. Our room was lovely with the most amazing bathroom - the shower was wonderful and the art deco decoration was beautiful. The floor of the bathroom was gently heated, so no cold feet, and the television sound from the bedroom was piped through to the bathroom. We went to see War Horse in the afternoon and on our return we found a cake with Happy Birthday piped on the plate. In the evening we had cocktails in the American Bar, which was another lovely experience.

We ate in the Savoy Grill and the food was delicous - the service again being impeccable.

As I have read in other reviews on here, the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. I am not generally a great sleeper, waking several times a night, but at the Savoy I slept right through until the morning.

The next morning we had breakfast in what I believe was the Riverside restaurant - again spectacularly decorated - with perfect service and food.

The Savoy itself is such a beautiful hotel - I couldn't get over the amount of flowers everywhere, especially the display of the most gorgeous orchids on the ground floor.

To sum up, for ordinary people like us this was a real once in a lifetime treat - but it was such a wonderful treat, we may have to save up for another!!

I took my mother for tea at the Savoy and we both really enjoyed it. The room is beautiful and the tables nicely spaced out with lovely china and silverware. The sandwiches and cakes were great and the lemon curd served with the scones was sublime. Only small criticism, the scones although they looked impressive, were a bit ordinary. The service was really good and our waitress was charming. The best tea experience we have had. Well definitely be back.

We stayed here for the first time many years ago, before the refurbishment. We had a lovely stay then but came away saying that it didn't match the likes of the Ritz & Claridges. We found it all a bit dark & dreary back then & wouldn't have given it another try had it not been for the revamp. Well, what an improvement! It really is absolutely beautiful now. We really couldn't fault it. The room, service, & food all lived up to expectations. It was like stepping back in time - in a lovely way of course!

I had two nights at the Savoy earlier this winter - and I really enjoyed most of it; impeccable and friendly service, beautiful hotel, nice room and amenities, good breakfast, even better cocktails etc.

All in all close to perfect, but (always a but or two in the way of perfect), the hotel charges for wi-fi access and internet in the rather average business centre (at 550 per night I would expect that to be included), further the mobile and 3D data coverage in the hotel is close to zero. All in all these buts were a bit annoying as this was a business trip. That said, what a hotel!

We arrived to be welcomed by name at the door. From this moment on for the duration of our stay the staff were extremely polite, professional and attentive. The room was equipped with everything you would need and anything else you required was only a request away.We ate at the Savoy Grill, the food was 5 stars and was served by a very knowledgeable team. Our choice of bar to relax in was the American bar where the cocktails are to die for. Check out the chocolatier next to the Savoy Tea, it will make your mouth water! Breakfast was served in the Thames foyer and this really is the WOW factor of the hotel. It's Art Deco detailing is really fantastic. You really get a sense of the history to this hotel.
The only downside to our stay was the fact we had to come home to reality and get on with our day to day lives!...oh well, at least this was a wedding anniversary unlike any other we have had and the whole experiance proved truly unforgettable as we were treated like royalty. We would really recommend a stay here for that special occasion. Yes it is costly but you certainly get what you pay for..the credit card bill can wait while we sit on cloud 9 for a couple more hours. Thank you Savoy

We chose the Savoy for a anniversary treat and were not disappointed, to the welcome from The doorman to being met inside the hotel foyuer by a charming member of staff who offered Us a little tour round the hotel to get our bearings before personally taking us up to our room And showing us all the facilities on offer we felt very privaliged, we had our evenning meal in The riverside restuarant, again the service was second to none as was the food , a very Relaxing experience , later that night me and my wife tried the American bar for a night cap , Again very attentive staff and comfortable surroundings, as with most central London hotels Not cheap but not bad either, when we returned to the room they had left slippers and bottles Of water , turned down the bed sheets and even put the telly buttons ready beside the bed , Love this place, at breakfast we where shown to our table and waited on,asking little things How we liked our eggs and toast, nothing was too much trouble, staff were really helpful with directions and information (shows and things) , the location is very good with Covent garden, Trafalgar square, Big Ben , Houses of Parliment in easy walking distance, shops and cafes Also, handy, just round from the hotel is a sainsburys local for things you have forgot , we Had A great night out at the Tattersall Castle River boat (comedy night) which is moored just a short Walk behind the Savoy, very reasonable too for food and drink on board, the pubs nearby did Very good meals too, would we go back..you bet we would

Room Tip: We had a Art Deco room which had a hall passage and separate beautifully appointed Bathroom
