We had the pleasure of enjoying an afternoon tea here, over the years we have had tea at some of the best places in London, this ranks amongst the best. The tea, pastries and sandwiches were of a high quality, but what really makes this venue stand out is the relaxed ambiance. We had our tea in the conservatory area, which was bright and airy, the service was excellent. Antonio our waiter served us with a smile and was happy to replenish teas , sandwiches or pastries. We would highly recommend this venue and will definitely return.

Decided to give the Chesterfield Mayfair a try after filtering through countless competitive shortlisted choices for the best value for money afternoon tea in London.

We were seated at a table in the conservatory, however the size of it is definitely much smaller and less dramatic than the photos depicted on their official website. This place gets fully booked during the weekends, therefore make sure to book at least 2 weeks ahead and ask for a table in the conservatory.

We shared two Traditional Afternoon Tea and a Chocolate Lovers Afternoon Tea sets which were all nicely arranged and consolidated into a 3 tier rounded stand. Although it seems really preposterous to consolidate what would be an Afternoon Tea set for 3 people into ONE stand. You can't help but feel that the more people you have at a seating, you lose out on some of the food as they do try to consolidate everything into one stand. However it really does fill you up! Most of the other tables can't even finish what they've ordered within their seating and opted to pack the remains instead.

The Chocolate Lovers Afternoon Tea set was definitely very unique as it was purely chocolate heaven, with chocolate eclairs, cupcakes, scones that comes with either a cup of hot chocolate/chocolate milkshake! A must try for chocolate addicts.

The whole experience was wonderful and I have nothing to complain about. From the calming atmosphere right down to the food and tea, it was money well spent. Therefore I would highly recommend the Chesterfield Mayfair.

Stayed here as I was at a party nearby. Good location but the rooms for their price miss a certain something. Bland and homogonous. Service was totally impersonal which i suppose could be expected for a London hotel, but I´ve definately had better. Won´t be back in too much of a hurry.

This is our first time staying here in the summer months and despite the hoards of tourists in London, it didn't seem full. We really like the quiet charm of the public rooms. Standard bedrooms are well furnished if a little small, with some nice touches - complimentary bottled water & free WIFI.Towels were replaced in the early evening - ideal if you've showered before going out. Staff were helpful and attentive. We booked via a travel agent so got a good reduction on the rack rate.
There's a very good tapas restaurant a short walk away (El Pirata) which I really like. They have their own website so check it out.

The single room that I stayed in was a nice size. Very comfortable bed and pillows. A good sized bathroom, clean and nice amenities. I heard one couple complain about the water pressure but my shower was fine. Service was friendly and fast. I did not eat at the hotel so I cannot comment. I was there for only 1 night. I walked to Covent Garden to go to a play - it was about a half hour walk (I like to take it slow and occasionally take a peek in a shop along the way). 3 blocks to the Ritz Hotel, Fortnum & Masons, Burlington Arcade, etc.
Green Park tube station is 3 blocks away (one of the busier tube stations). 10 pounds for a cab from Paddington Station (including tip). Used the Express train from Heathrow 18 pounds and 15 minutes to Paddington (simple and fast). navigating a suitcase through Green Park station is do'able - but there are some stairs and it is busy.

Perfect welcome; nice room; always friendly. You don't have to ask for anything here, as the nice staff are always ahead of you. For instance, "do you need a wi-fi key; do you need a taxi; can we hold your luggage, etc." We like it so much that we will be back, and will regard it as our London home.
