“Top Hotel in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

I've stayed at the Chauncery Court Hotel 4-5 times over the past two years (which was what the Rosewood was called before the renovation) and just stayed in the newly renovated Rosewood for 9 days. While I loved the hotel before, I ADORE the hotel now. They've taken a great hotel to an entirely new level, from the decor, to the food, to the bar, to the gym, to the staff. Everything has been thought of, especially for the business traveler--a rarity in London. My entire team (who stayed as well) was simply blown away. Thank you Michael, Isabella, Jose, Luke, Christof and the entire team--we will most definitely see you again soon!

I recently attended a canapé and drink reception in the Ballroom at the Rosewood London and I have to say, that I was impressed by Gianluca's Cocktail creations. It was simple but very delightful and perfect for a reception with many people. The look of the ballroom foyer was great. The service provided by the staff was truly 5 star. Daniel was outstanding with the service provided and his excellent explanation about the rosewood hotels. I had a chat with him and he answered me all the questions in a very professional way. Nothing was to much. Well done Daniel and team. Very great experience at the rosewood london.

After dining at the stunning Bull Expert Steak House we knew we were in the vicinity of Pearl bar in Holborn and somehow we ended up in Rosewood only to be informed by a giant 6ft 8inch manager that Pearl bar was closed forever, so let the fun begin. Whoever designed and paid for this place certainly didn't spare the horses the interior build quality is nothing short of stunning.
If your sunk cost is £8 for a cocktail it's well worth their £10 - £12 price tag for the focused service from incredibly fun staff interaction combined with the original cocktail list.
A peach.

Room Tip: Use the toilets downstairs whether you want too or not

Dear TheFoodDood,

Thank you very much indeed for the kind review !

Apologies for the time it has taken to reply. I am the 6ft 8 manager you speak of (unfortunately only 6ft 7, but thank you for the accolade !). I’m so glad that you enjoyed the remainder of the evening in Scarfes Bar. Gerald Scarfe has now started adding his artwork to the space so there’s lots of exciting changes. We have also opened our latest restaurant, Holborn Dining Room so I do hope that we will see you back here soon !

With all my best.

As someone who has frequented just about all the top hotel bars in London I can honestly say this one leaves all the rest for dead! Why? A number of things. Firstly the bar is just so incredibly homey you feel as if you're in your own members' club. You just have to visit to appreciate it! Secondly the service is really five star, with smiling staff and engaging conversation (on this occasion with Giovanni and Gregory). In some of the London hotels the cocktail barmen are so full of their own importance that they even forget to acknowledge customers but there was none of this here. And then to cap it off the food was amazing! I really was surprised as I was expecting the standard hotel fare as it wasn't in their main restaurant but no, there was nothing 'standard' about our lunch. My colleague and I chose the British menu and we couldn't fault it. I intend to come back to try the Indian menu as it's obvious they have a very accomplished chef in Palash. I cannot remember the last time I raved about a place as much as this and I am just so pleased it's only down the road from where I live.

My weekend at Rosewood London came at the tail end of a two week multi-country business trip. I booked this weekend to unwind and see some friends in London. I am so glad I chose Rosewood! Aside from comfort, lovely decor (much acquired from a great shop called India Jane), tasty meals and welcoming atmosphere, the staff was the friendliest and most accommodating (without overdoing it) that I have experienced in my many years of global travel. Judith at the concierge desk knew me by name and was very helpful and friendly as was everyone else I encountered. I was able to convey this to the head of HR who I met while enjoying a close look at the birds in the lobby.

I was astonished to learn that the facility had only been opened for two weeks. Except for the fact that the spa had not yet opened, the facility was running extremely smoothly.

My only reservation about Rosewood London is the price. While I will definitely consider staying for a weekend; a long business trip would be too costly.

Stayed here for one night after seeing a west end show.
Got an excellent deal on 'late rooms' and was very impressed with the high quality of the hotel.
The room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped.
We had breakfast included which was of excellent quality.
