“Amazing Christmas lunch and amazing service!”
Reviewed 26 December 2012 via mobile

We had Christmas lunch booked here and we were amazed at the food quality, amazing service and speed of our courses coming out. Our waitress couldn't do enough to help us, but definitely wasn't in our face, which was perfect. Would definitely recommend for Christmas lunch :)

Stayed December 2012, travelled as a couple

Minimalist design, arty city hotel, great for sexy weekend or business fun, with spacious bath/rain shower for two, big beds, champagne flutes, I phone dock and adjustible 'moonlight'. Drawbacks: High tech tv and electrics need some figuring out and only found instructions when leaving, sauna/steam room was not turned on and no one there to help and should allow couples, lively bar so popular it's difficult for guests to get a drink.Definitely worth return visit to explore club, restaurant and terraces.

Stayed here on a Friday night with my wife and another couple and ate in the Angler restaurant as well. Serice from the staff was excellent and our room was fantastic. The bed was absolutely lovely - so comfortable. The food in the restaurant was excellent, although I thought a little pricey. My on,y small complaint was that our room was on the third floor and facing onto the main road, and was a bit noisy on Saturday morning. That said, I would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the back of the hotel or at the top of the building, so you are away from the stre...

Stayed here Saturday for my husbands birthday. Chose this hotel as it is new & modern. Lovely room, great comfy bed. Bathroom was very trendy with great lighting, big bath with huge overhead shower. Big thank you to Maria for the birthday treat waiting in our room (chocolate brownies & card) and to Zsolt (conceirge) who was most helpful. Eat in the Angler restaurant which is on the 6th Floor - we felt it was quiet for Saturday night however the food was good - husbands starter however of ravioli was only one ravioli much to his dismay! Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would definately stay again, made a change to stay in different part of London other than cenral. Walked to Spitalfields market on Sunday, about 5/10 mins walk away.

Always like to take the office somewhere special at the end of the year and I just knew South Place was going to be perfect. We booked the Peel Room, hence our theme, ladies in catsuits (well sort of) and the gents in bowlers. We never checked out the venue beforehand, just loved the pictures of the place. It was all we expected it to be! The staff were brilliant, helpful and patient. The room beautifully decorated with a beribboned lampshade of enormous proportions.

The menu three choices (plus vegetarian) was excellent. The steaks exquisite and the puds, well bliss. Then the cheese board, all were ecstatic.

The staff very kindly allowed us to repair to Le Chiffre (sitting room and pool table area) for our after dinner cocktails. The room is gorgeous, we loved the Casino Royale links and it is my favourite area in the hotel (have not seen the bedrooms yet!). Having said that en masse we were allowed to move freely around the hotel and enjoy it from the Angler Bar and Terrace, the secret garden on our floor, a bar area outside and perfect for smokers! No longer feel like a piranha!

Ending up in the bar on the ground floor for final cocktails - From Russia with Love was my particular downfall! The reception booked our cars home, swift and sure.

A brilliant night out for everyone, they are still talking about it at the office.. I will definitely be back for more.

Stayed at South Place Hotel on Saturday night with my girlfriend to spend the weekend in London for our anniversary.

The hotel was what we expected and more! Easy to get to only being a two minute walk from Moregate tube station so was a great place to get around. The staff were incredibly friendly and the room was superb! Real modern feel, comfortable bed...the only negative I could find was that the TV remote wasn't very user friendly, struggling for any other negatives.. all in all great stay.

Value for money and would love to stay there again!

We are very pleased to read that you have had such a great stay here with us and your room and the service of our staff was to your satisfaction.

We can appreciate your frustration with the the TV remote. Our Front Desk team is now making sure that upon rooming the guests they are provided with a quick tutorial on the B&O remotes if they are not familiar. They are tricky, but we felt the quality of the televisions was worth it, and hope you found the same.

Thank you very much once again for your feedback.I hope to have you with us again in the future.

Best wishes,

Stayed here on saturday night, great location for bars/restaurants and city shops. Service in the hotel was efficient and friendly. Great bar and 'chill out' lounges. very comfy beds.
Highly recommend for meeting with friends for drinks and/or shopping/visiting london, as easy access to tube and buses and refreshing to be away from the touristy west end.
