“Nice and fresh with a great court yard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Quite anynomous from the outside, however, very fresh immediately when stepping inside. A really cool bar and a superb court yard at the ground floor. Perfect for a cocktail in the summer.
Friendly staff, good service.
Rooms are quite spacious. Delicate and minimalistic style. Big bathrooms, no bath tub (at least not in my room)
Location is good, however not exceptionally. Of course depending on your criterias. Very good if you are doing meetings in the City, not so good in terms of the main shopping districts if you prefer walking distance.
Alot of good restaurants nearby. Rooms a bit more than average expensive even for London, but you do get the feeling of staying at a five star hotel.
Would go back.

Simply put, no need to look elsewhere.

I've stayed at this hotel twice and similar experiences both times. Staff is excellent, very helpful, especially the doorman. The hotel rooms are sparkly clean, great atmosphere and nice decor.

The lobby is spacious and lovely as well.

The hotel is also convenient - quick 5 min walk to the Tottenham Court subway.

I strongly recommend.

Morgan's Group is without a doubt the best boutique group out there. Never disappointed by their level of service, beautiful rooms and amazing locations. Would never stay anywhere else in London. Their hotels in NYC are also my preference.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stayed here for one night so we could try the Mad Hatters afternoon tea. When we arrived at check-in time, we were told our room was not ready (we have had this in so many London hotels, it's ridiculous). After waiting ten minutes in the not at all comfortable reception area (more like a pretentious art gallery), the receptionist came over and said it would be another ten minutes. When I remonstrated, she gave us two vouchers for cocktails in the bar. This definitely helped alleviate my anger!

We were in a King Deluxe and it was a reasonable size, all clean. However, there is so much glass (and white curtains), that I constantly felt I was going to walk into the glass, particularly when entering and exiting the bathroom. The room was definitely designed with style not comfort in mind. You cannot watch the tv from anywhere in the room but the bed, not from the sofa. The sofa is not comfortable for two people to sit on and the only hanging rail is in the bathroom so clothes do feel slightly damp sometimes. Also the windows were absolutely filthy, inside and out!

Afternoon tea was good, a fun experience. The outside seating area is lovely, especially at night when it is lit by candles and you can really appreciate the water feature. We had cocktails in this area late at night and it was stunning, easily the best part of the hotel. Cocktails are excellent and the bar staff friendly.

Breakfast was a bit disappointing. We ordered eggs benedict and both found that our eggs were overcooked. On the menu it said that it would come with toast but we were presented with a bill instead. When I requested the toast, the waiter seemed very put out.

Not a bad stay but there are better hotels around at this price point.

We recently stayed at the Sanderson Hotel and we were overwhelmed by the courteous and friendly welcome received upon arrival, booking in was done with ease with no problems and the staff were very efficient and we were made to feel very welcome.

We found the super king sized bed to be very comfortable. I loved the modern decor which just made our family feel totally relaxed. We were given clear instructions as to how to use the air conditioner and the TV which also has connections for wi-fi, ipad and usb.

We experienced the High Tea and this equally was a wonderful experience in wonderful surroundings with very pleasant and experienced staff, a real treat with exquisite cakes and sandwiches.

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty good and well situated for a comfortable and restful stay.

We stayed already tree times in this hotel. Excellent service, beautiful rooms, nice bar / restaurant and a relaxing spa area. It is not too quiet - the bar is a popular place in the evening. We are looking forward to be your guests again!

I was initially underwhelmed by the rooms but my appreciation for the white billowy curtains grew over my 4 day stay. The bathroom is well appointed with nice toiletries. The bed was amazingly comfy and I slept very well under the crisp white sheets.

Only an automatic curtain separating the room and the bathroom so no space to be shy!

The three points that made the hotel wow for me:
Location- walking distance from London's shopping, eating and partying hotspots.
Concierge- can get you on the guest list for pretty much any club you fancy.
Hotel's Purple Bar- exclusive for residence. We had very late night drinks with a very famous pop star who was in town and he even picked up our bill...what a Jamaican gentlemen!

Oh and even if you don't have a treatment the spa has an amazing steam room which is complimentary for residents and is a must! If you use to watch Absolutely Fabulous it will remind you of a very funny episode where Edina is dreaming :).

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side street boring view but much quieter.

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.

Sanderson’s indoor/outdoor lobby is a layered and sophisticated environment that is totally original. ... more   less
