I've wanted to stay at The Lanesborough (had thoroughly researched all the 5 star properties in the city) and visit London for over 15 years and my dream finally came true!! The hotel exceeded ALL my MANY high expectations!! I booked a year in advance because was very particular about room I was wanting to request as this was a huge bucket list trip for my husband/I. The hotel is the most gorgeous/opulent we've ever stayed ( and have stayed at many luxury 5 stars around the world). However, the décor is not over the top - it's just perfect and you are made to feel very comfortable/welcomed - it's not at all stuffy/aerogant. The staff from management, concierge, front door are a step above the rest!! We are very discerning travelers and have been blessed to travel frequently - and yet this hotel delivered all on all levels and then some!! We had a junior suite that was the most beautiful room and bathroom with all the neat high tech tablets, etc. I had requested a King bed, on 1st/2nd floor (for the amazing high ceilings), facing courtyard to ensure a quiet night's sleep as I'm a light sleeper. All requests were honored (they are based on availability) so we felt very fortunate. We stayed 5 nights, breakfast included which was also wonderful. We also frequented Library Bar at hotel 3 nights, and Michael and his staff took amazing care of us. The Withdrawing room is also great for tea, etc. - just gorgeous!! The location is also the BEST in London for exploring, and staying in the most expensive neighborhoods - great sightseeing, etc! All of the staff, butlers, etc could not be more attentive!! I've never stayed at a hotel where anytime I called for something (no matter what it was), someone was at the door in 1-2 minutes - just incredible! If ever blessed to return to London, this is the only hotel we will stay at!!!!

Thank you very much indeed for such a detailed and thoughtful review.
I am delighted your stay was so memorable. Even more so that you could enjoy the experience of The Library Bar and Withdrawing Room, both very different but both where you can while away the time.
Our Butler service really is very unique and we pride ourselves on being there for every guest, whatever they may need.
It is wonderful to know that your time with us was so special and we hope that you will find yourselves back in London in the not too distant future, we'd be so pleased to welcome your return.

Kind regards,

Hard to say much more than 'superb', 'gorgeous', 'beautiful', etc.

Decoration is out of this world, and in my opinion, superior to The Ritz and on a par with The Dorchester.

Gorgeously appointed room, super-high-tech, stunning bathroom.

Beautiful dining room, outstanding staff, a pleasure.

If anything I'd say a bit more assistance loading and unloading luggage upon arrival would be great but it's really nothing major.

Lovely stay.

Staying at the Lanesborough is a special treat, with butler service and wonderful library bar. The interior of the rooms and social areas are excellent. The Garden Bar is gorgeous. Love visiting here.

This was our first visit back to the newly renovated Lanesborough which now features an incredible and impeccable Spa & Club.

I loved the James Bond style entrance to the spa as it it actually connected behind and below the actual Lanesborough. Thanks to seamless architecture, you will not notice the difference.

Everything about the club was amazing. The staff were incredibly attentive and welcoming, and the facilities were modern, sophisticated and state if the art.

I've been to many high end spas around the world and The Lanesborough Spa & Club is right up there among the best.

The spa pool was incredible. Just check it out and you'll see what I mean.

Special acknowledgement to our therapist, Caroline, from France. She was AMAZING! She was strong, relaxing, had a unique technique and was very communicative to ensure the treatment being provided no only met but exceeded our expectation.

This is a beautiful spa and you can see the Lanesborough standards throughout.

Next time you are in London, I highly recommend you check out this spa whether you are staying at the Lanesborough or not.
