We chose this hotel for the location as it was convenient for everything. We had a super warm welcome and our room was spotless, warm and comfortable. I'd advise upgrading to a balcony room as I feel it made a difference. Wonderful staff and a perfect stay all around, thank you.

Outstandingly beautiful hotel, by far the best me and my partner have stayed at. The rooms are so beautiful you don't want to leave. Little extra touches such as lemon/lime sliced in the room with ice and cafetiere coffee instead of instant was lovely. Staff can't do enough to help and will assist with any issues. The Velvet bar is...

First of all, great staff. Friendly, helpful, polite and professional. Room was nice overall and bed super comfy (although my husband disagrees). Located super close to picadilly station. Only a 5 min walk and v easy to find. The issue I had was that it wasn't a 4* finish. E.g exposed wires in bar, lots of dust and cobwebs in...
