We stayed here and really couldn't have chosen a better hotel. From the moment we walked around the corner from the nearby tube station at St James's Park (2 minute walk), I knew I had made a good choice.
I am a big believer, that first impressions count. From the perfectly manicured lanscaped garden areas to the drive and path up to the entrance, it looked fantastic. We were immediatley welcomed outside and guided to the reception area through an impeccable and stunning entrance area. The receptionist was very friendly, efficient and it was nice to see a smiling face after a couple of hours travelling.
We were shown to our room by the duty manager. I had mentioned prior to our arrival that I was going to propose to my girlfriend whilst in London. The hotel certainly couldn't have done anymore to make a very nervous proposer feel at ease!! They had upgraded our room and even put a chilled bottle of Champagne and a selection of the most divine truffles in the room. I was intending to propose whilst out and about in London but my partner (now fiance!) said how romantic the room was, so down I got and popped the question. Thankfully she said YES! I really can't thank the staff at the hotel enough, including Nadia the duty manager for making my job so much easier. I don't think any other hotel could have gone to so much trouble and made us feel so welcome.
The room we stayed in was an Executive King with a seperate seating area. When we returned at night, the staff had put chocolate bees on the duvet and even a small bottle of sleep spray, which was a new one on me but worked well!
The location of the hotel is spot on, close to the tube but also perfect walking distance to Buckingham Palace (5-10 mins), Big Ben/Houses of Parliament (5-10 mins), London Eye (10 mins).
The next morning we decided to have breakfast in the room. There was so much food we didn't eat again until about 5 o'clock. Everything was so fresh and the Eggs Benedict I had were delicious.
I could go on, but hopefully after reading this, you'll realise that this is a hotel everyone should stay in if coming to London.
We'll definitely be back, thank you!!
