This hotel is/was a boutique hotel before botique hotels exisited.
I had fun taking my newly married wife & Italian-in-laws to stay in this hotel when I visited my family in London. I scored major brownie points for my good taste:-)
When I lived in London my family would frequently go & have Sunday lunch at the hotel.
The rooms are great, the back of the hotel looks over a garden square I think they are the best rooms in the hotel.
I have read somewhere it was the first hotel to be built in London where all the rooms had en suite bathrooms.
Don't expect standardisation; expect rather a one-off discret swiss hotelaire trained family run hotel.
Only possible criticsim is that the waiting service in the bar area can be inefficent outside dining hours but one really has to very difficult to allow this to spoil ones stay in this hotel.
