We are just back from a long weekend in London. Though the weather was cold and damp (it snowed) the hotel was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed quiet drinks in the bar before dinner and time by the fireplace after dinner. Every amenity has been thought of and the service impeccable. The location was perfect, close to shopping, theater and...

Cosy boutique style hotel in a great location. Staff was always very friendly and courteous and made us feel welcome from the moment we entered the hotel until check-out. The room and decor war nice and the bed super comfortable. Definitely one of my favourite hotels in London ....and a place to come back to.

Great food and wine, nice location, let down by a guy ranting to a load of business people at the next table. Make sure to ask for a tour of the cellars, amazing collection of fine wine and some historic stuff from when the hotel was used by the yanks during ww2

Dear CN0217 I am delighted you enjoyed the food and wine and tour of the wine cellar, including our little WW2 museum. We are very proud of our cellar - it is 380 years old, with a fascinating history and houses approx 10,000 bottles of wine. We are always happy to give our clients a private tour. Kind regards Stuart

In London for a week and stayed at the Stafford for the first time. Perfect location, amazing staff, a wonderful experience. Loved having tea by the fireplaces in the afternoon after exploring London.

I won an overnight stay for 2 in a competition, so were a little apprehensive as to what it might be like. We should not have worried - it was sensational!

Stayed 2 nights for my wife's birthday weekend. We especially liked: fantastic service; great location for central London & parks; understated luxury & elegance; posh but not 'over the top fussy'; great food in restaurant; fresh fruit selection at breakfast; overall general 'feel good factor'. This is now our favourite hotel in London. I really can't think of any negatives!

We just came back after 2 nights away on a slightly special occasion for us. The hotel arranged for a surprise for my girlfriend - even if she booked the room and my name wasn't on the reservation. Staff are all very helpful - but the final touch is missing. Remembering who we are and what room we stay in...

I've tried for several years to find an amazing hotel in London....and finally it's happened. It seemed if the hotel was good, the location was not. If the bedrooms (and beds) were luscious, then the staff lacked training, but finally - all things have converged perfectly at the Stafford. The location is amazing, and secluded on a back street with...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Stafford London is a leading five star hotel in London and defines all that is quintessentially British. Located in the historical neighbourhood of St James's, it is set in a discreet and prestigious location beside the Royal Green Park. Opened as a hotel in 1912 and rich in history since the 1700s, it offers luxurious rooms and dining with an award winning, personalised guest service. The famous American Bar with floor to ceiling memorabilia and 380-year-old wine cellars are a sight to behold. Make sure to ask for a tour of the cellars and the in-house museum; the wine cellars doubled as a bomb shelter during WWII. ... more   less
