“Simply the best.”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

Another night at the Sanderson and am happy to report that their high standards have been maintained. Informed them that the stay was a birthday surprise for my wife and on return back to our room there was a complimentary bottle of Champagne. A really lovely touch from a 1st class hotel. Can't wait till our next visit.

I wasn't sure about the garish furniture in the foyer with a slightly euro trash feel. But the room was calm and worked exceptionally well.

Despite being the base level room I had plenty of space and everything I needed. It felt light and open and fresh.

The day spa was worth a visit. And all room service was excellent. The jet lag juice from the day spa menu was terrific.

I found all the staff to be helpful and very friendly.

The location is excellent. Two minutes walk north of Oxford Street. Good local cafes in nearby Charlotte Lane. Lantana made great coffee.

Suggestions - tea and coffee facilities are available via housekeeping but I only stumbled upon this being available. No power points in the bathroom means hairdryers need to be plugged in to the floor socket next to the hall mirror. The cord isn't that long which makes using your hairdryer awkward and an annoying design fault to an otherwise well laid out room.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, and we’re particularly pleased that you had an opportunity to experience agua, our urban spa. The spa team have worked closely with the Executive Chef to create some revitalising food and drink healthy options, including a range of refreshing juices. Electrical sockets are not allowed in bathrooms, and we considered fitted hairdryer units for the bathrooms, however general feedback was that they were not as powerful as handheld dryers. Extension leads should have been available and our apologies if this was not made known. Please let us know when you are next staying we would love to welcome you back to Sanderson.

We stayed at the Sanderson the day after we got married, upon arrive we were given a warm welcome and informed that we had been upgraded to a loft room. We Arrive early so our room was not quite ready, which gave us a chance to sample a cocktail or two at the long bar. The staff took an interest in us and even kindly gave us a complimentary glass of champagne each!

The room was beautifully lit with candles and delicate lighting perfectly presented with a bottle of champagne on ice and rose petrels on the bed.

Prior to heading down to the Suka restaurant another bottle of champagne was kindly sent up from reception courtesy of the hotel.

Afternoon tea was delightful in the court yard and dinner in the evening spectacular.

I could go on and on about the hotel and staff, but I don't wish I spoil any surprises!

We couldn't have had a better start to married life and are very much looking forward to coming back soon!

My boyfriend and I spent a night in the truly stunning Penthouse suite... it was a dream hotel room!

Firstly a private lift with our own butler took us up to the room, and it was stunning. The bed was set at an angle in the centre of the bedroom and it was huge and super comfortable, with fluffy white pillows.

The room is dreamy and romantic, with floaty curtains draped all around the room. The bathroom was just as luxurious - it was set 'within' the bedroom, in a glass 'box' draped with the same curtains. There was a large power shower, lovely products, and an amazing huge metal bath with steps leading up to it.

The location of the hotel is fantastic, and the views from the suite are magnificent. The windows are huge and you have an awesome view of London from both sides of the suite.

We ordered lot's of food, drinks and champagne and it all came promptly - the service was excellent, discreet but friendly and helpful.

I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel for a romantic break; especially the Penthouse suite!

Got off to a rather rocky start with checkin. Unfortunately, this young lass Laura from Vancouver Canada was a real snot. She was too busy kibitzing with other people instead of helping us register. We got in rather late and were tired, to say the least, what with the time change and jet lag. But if we were men in tight fitting clothes we would have had her undivided attention, alas we weren't. She waved us in the general direction of 'The Purple Room' telling us she would 'sort things out'. But she didn't and we had to go find someone else who sorted out the mess she made. She half-heartedly apologized saying 'she just got on full-time and was finding her way around this'?????? What????

The room was interesting and stylish. The location in London is unparalleled. We did feel better after a good nights sleep, but after our encounter with Laura, we avoided her whenever we had to ask for help at the desk. Like we said, if we were well buffed men she would have licked us up.

Thank you Gerry for your kind comments on the room and location in particular. We have core values in relation to an attentive and gracious service at all times, and it is disappointing if this was not demonstrated more fully on your arrival. This has been discussed with the Front Office team.

I booked Sanderson recently for some friends of mine who were travelling from Australia and I wanted to give them one special night. Sanderson was perfect. They came back and said all sorts of lovely things: the staff were fantastic, they always seemed ready to help and talk, even if it wasn't their job. they were confident they could call the front desk and ask anything and it would be sorted out. they made a particular comment about how buzzy and lively the bars were but they felt so relaxed and tranquil upstairs. there were loads more but those were the highlights!

Room Tip: definitely visit the spa.

I stayed there for 2 days. The decoration was very special rather minimal. Bathroom was excellent with shower room and bathtub as well. Very clean. Room service great. Spa piece of art. This hotel has a nice sense of a smaller friendly hotel. My only complain was that there was not real honey at breakfast but only akakia honey which did not taste well. Very good location close to everything.

A lavish "Urban Spa" in the heart of London’s West End, Sanderson offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and wellbeing.
