Having stayed at the Waldorf Hotel a couple of weeks ago and had a thoroughly miserable (and expensive) experience, my husband and I wanted somewhere special to stay whilst we were in London for the weekend - and we found it @ 51 Buckingham Gate. From booking, through check-in, Butler Services, complimentary cocktails and canapes and finally check out - we couldn't have asked for anything more. Every single member of staff we encountered were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble at all. We already had our weekend planned but if we had required any assistance in getting around or booking a restaurant, theatre or attraction, I know they would have come up trumps. We stayed in a junior suite and it surpassed expectation. Fully fitted (and I mean fully fitted) kitchen, great big bathroom with every amenity you could need, super comfy American kingsize bed, iPod dock, DVD player (DVD library card supplied in the room) and a personal handwritten welcome card from the Manager in the room for when we arrived. We did not try breakfast as we were out and about early, but I know that it would've been the same standard as everything else. The hotel is a stone's throw from St James's Park tube so location is great.

My husband and I travel to London at least once a month and have stayed in different hotels each time trying to find 'the right one' - our seach is now over, we need look no more - 51 Buckingham Gate will have our custom everytime.

I just returned from a business trip to London and it was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had in a long time -and this was due to my stay at 51 Buckingham Gate. I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment which was wonderfully appointed All the small touches in the room made me feel very much at home. The staff were very friendly and went above and beyond the call of duty to service the clients and nothing was a bother and they made you feel welcome. The food was excellent. The evening cocktail hour each evening was a nice way to wind down before going out for dinner. The two restaurants in the complex -Bank and Quilon were excellent and the standard of service very high This hotel is worth every penny and friends and family living in London were amazed at what it had to offer. I will definitely recommend to my friends and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: I was told that King House is the newest and the higher floors - 6 and 7 are the best.

Dear FunkeO

Thank you very much for the wonderful review of your experience at 51 Buckingham Gate.

I am very pleased to know that your business trip became a homely experience by choosing to stay with us and that you apreciated among many other things the additional space you had in a two bedroom suite.

Our desire is to make you feel truly comfortable and relaxed so that once you walk into the hotel you are home.

I am delighted to know that you enjoyed the cocktail hour in The Library and the food in the restaurants. The next time you stay with us you should try the new menu at The Hamptons Bar (across the Courtyard in our sister's hotel lobby) there are some amazing dishes in a relaxed yet very good looking bar.

We very much look forward to see you back.

Best wishes

This is the best hotel I've been so far regarding the service and the hospitality in general! The staff was way more than helpful and friendly as well. Loved the afternoon drinks and tea! Thanks a lot!

Built by the cheapest contractors. Hot water around the wrong way. Toilet tilted so much you feel like you're about to fall off. Contractors working through-out the day with their loud drills. Staff are nice. Breakfast and internet not included in price, which is shocking for this day and age, especially in a five star hotel. Stay here if you want a headache.
