We were lucky enough to hold our wedding reception here back in September 1995. It was exceptional and every possible detail and more was overseen and anticipated by an amazing team of staff who made every guest feel especially welcome. We were fortunate to be able to return for an incredible and quite unforgettable celebration of our first wedding anniversary....

We just walked in here for afternoon tea and OMG is it beautiful inside. They have several rooms where you can have tea, which were all incredibly beautiful but the one we chose to go to was just breathtakingly stunning with glass ceilings and beautiful decor. It's not cheap but you get a great selection of things and fantastic service....

We had a wonderful afternoon tea for my daughter's birthday. The food was amazing and they really looked after the children. Rafaela and Federico were particularly good hosts and the hotel looks even more beautiful post the refurbishment.

It's like a country house is one of those phrases that gets bandied about to describe certain swishy hotels in the middle of big cities, such as this one. The beloved Library bar and cigar terrace are still there, and still superb. The restaurant Céleste is among the loveliest airiest hotel dining rooms in London overseen by Favario formerly of...

I have stayed in most of the top hotels in London, but had not stayed in the Lanesborough before so I decided to try it. The Lanesborough is superb--it rivals any other hotel in London and I have a hard time deciding if it or the Connaught are the best hotels in London. The rooms are spacious. The service was...

I had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Excellent cuisine, I loved all the plates served as well as the desserts at the end. The menu was inventive. I would recommend fish and asparagus and for dessert any of the chocolate desserts served, great tastes.

A lovely experience from start to finish. Staff are professional, helpful and knowledgable. The location is on Hyde Park Corner, is great for Heathrow on the tube or Gatwick from Victoria train station as well as Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly and the Knightsbridge area and of course across from Hyde park and Park Lane. The food is delicious, it's on the...

Stayed there on a work trip and was really blown away. As soon as I arrived (at 7 a.m. after an overnight flight), I was greeted by name and whisked up to my room for an early check-in. The decor is very unique - classic English style but fresh and polished which makes it seem contemporary at the same time....

We arrived in the hotel at 12pm, but had to wait 4 hours for check in, deapite the fact we were told to wait 2 hours. The reception area is a joke, there are only three chairs available, so we had nowhere to wait. We went to the afternoon tea restaurant and it was shocking (but thats the different story)....
