Beautiful hotel with friendly and attentive staff, who remembered me from previous visits (or at least took the time to check that I had been before). Comfortable beds and lovely Penhaligon's toiletries.

Full of English charm, the property is tucked away in a beautifully quiet corner of St James, with great access to some of the capital's finest shopping and history. The hotel staff are immensely professional, friendly and courteous and the food is just wonderful.

Very clean! Uniquely detailed. Older, decade decor. Dining areas are very dark- feels like a better fit for fall and winter dining. Location extremely conveniently located. Kichi sports paraphernalia strung from ceiling in bar- not so clean. But good cocktails.
