Let me start by saying we normally stay in 5 star hotels. We have stayed at the Ritz, Mandarin and many other high end 5 star hotels around the world.
This was without a doubt the best.
The hotel itself only has 29 rooms/suites. There is a lovely reading room you walk into, this is the place you dine and sit while you wait for your room.
Upon checking in we where presented with four different choices of champagne. Not just the cheap stuff either. We had a choice from 4 great brands. We both opted for the Veuve clique (one of our favourites). Two large glasses of free champagne later we were lead to our room.
The room itself was lovely large, spacious. Great views.
The room itself had sky TV in, this is a first for any hotel we have stayed in.
The shower was nothing short of incredible. A great power shower.
The bed was the most comfortable and largest bed we have ever experienced. Compare this to the bed we had at the Mandarin, which was like sleeping on a hard wood floor!
The staff are some of the nicest staff we have ever experienced. They know you on a first name basis, always there having unforced natural conversations with the guests.
The breakfasts are brilliant. We were presented with a menu with over 10 major choices. The first morning I opted for the cooked breakfast, second morning the eggs benedict. Everything cooked perfectly. Pair this with the continental breakfast bar that has a wide choice of things from Yogurts, cereals, different meats (parma ham, smoked salmon etc).
They have an area in the reading room where you can help yourself to free treats throughout your stay, including sweets, ice cream and many other canapes. This is a great touch. Normally for this type of service we would have to pay a lot more to go club level.
We got a deal including two nights in an upgraded room, breakfast and a romantic turn down service (including chocolate covered strawberry, chocolates, bottle of Louis Rodera champagne) for £700. We stayed in an upgraded room at the mandarin, without breakfast and that cost us £640 for one night! so this is by far a bargain in comparison. We will never stay anywhere in London again, this place cannot be beaten in our opinion. The little touches are the things that count and really make an experience memorable.
