I've lost count of the number of times I've stayed at the 51 over the last five years, but my experience is always the same...wonderful! My latest visit in September was no different. The staff are the best. Special kudos to the concierge team of Nelson, Alex and Jon, who deftly handle every request I make. They are efficient, knowledgeable and excellent at their jobs. Also, kudos to the butlers, Sergio, Vasi and Thomas. They genuinely make everyone feel welcome and well looked after. On this last trip I asked about renting a wheelchair for my mother, who was overcoming an illness. The 51 said no problem, they would handle it. When we arrived the wheelchair was there ready for her use. The hotel had gone out and bought one especially for her use during her stay! How fabulous is that? And like everything they do, the quality of the wheelchair was top of the line. My mother had several trips to St James Park and by the end of the trip was actually walking more. That's just an example of the detail and care the 51 staff take.
During the trip the weather was lovely in London and we sat outside and had the most wonderful lunch in the courtyard, which looked lovely with the flowers and foliage. Hard to believe that you are in the centre of London as it is such a quiet location.
The beautiful rooms, welcoming staff,delicious food, and great location all serve to make the 51 the ideal "home from home" and I can't wait to go home again!
