Situated in a stunning 200-year-old Georgian building, the Corus Hotel Hyde Park occupies an enviable address on Lancaster Gate amidst London’s attractive W2 postcode. From here, the West End is at your fingertips, whether you’re in town for a spot of shopping, an exhibition or a world-class theatre show. However you spend your days, you have the four-star surrounds of this historic building to come back to.
Corus Hotel Hyde Park is imbued with a laid-back elegance that’s particularly prevalent in the conservatory restaurant, which affords views over Hyde Park itself. A modern vibe contrasts with the hotel’s historic exterior, creating a homely space that’s the perfect base for some time exploring the city.
How to Get There
We booked by credit card but decided to pay cash when we got there, we were assured that the credit card would not be charged, but it was, when we phoned back we got told it would take two weeks to be refunded,not acceptable i don't think, also the cleaners were knocking on our door at 8.30 am which woke us up, on my only day off work in a month! So not a very happy stay😕
We had a lovely afternoon tea here at Christmas time.
We bought two vouchers via Groupon which represented great value for money!
The food was plentiful, nice selection of teas (unlimited!) and nice atmosphere when by the window across from Hyde Park.
The shining star during our afternoon tea was our kind and friendly sever, Najat, who was so helpful, chatting to us and offering assistance anytime we required it, even taking a lovely photo for us at our table. She is truly an asset to this hotel and I truly hope Corus recognises her for the warm, genuine, friendly service she brings to the table :)
Only negatives would be the atmosphere in the dining area away from the window could be improved as it's quite dark, so definitely ask for a table by the window. Also, toilets could be cleaner. But this in no way hampered our overall afternoon tea experience as everything else was wonderful.
Will definitely be back in the future!
I have been there for a long week end; nice location, right in front of Hyde park; closed to a tube station; very elegant and quite place: the staff is great; just a thing: room is a little too small. I reccomend it
It was lovely, we had the best time. Our waitress was called Najat ( most nicest person ever ). The staff made us feel welcome and comfortable, always coming over to check if we needed anything. We went for a late birthday celebration and they came out with a cake and mango sorbet with a candle in the top of it ( which I was of course extremely happy about.) , we had the most nicest view which was by the window and the inside was nicely decorated with Christmas lights that made it so warming. Unlimited amount of different kinds of tea ( no extra cost ), So overall it is a lovely place if you want to chill and have afternoon tea with family and friends. You can also have a glass of different prosecco... :)
Only down side that we found, is that you should be able to pick the fillings for the sandwiches because some wasn't that apetizing.
The Corus Hotel is located half block from Hyde Park, and few blocks from the tube station. There are so many shops and Restaurants nearby. We walked late at night and it felt safe, and surrounded area is alive at night.
The staff at the Hotel were wonderful, especially Antonio, Federica, and Jorge! The hotel's restaurant and bar are excellent and prices are just right.
