How to Get There
Attended a business event in one of the ball rooms and was roundly unimpressed. The refurbishment is good and everything is suitably opulent for the Knightsbridge address. However, the these steak tartar wagyu canapé in ice cream cones should have been mind blowing- it was vile. The group I was stood with felt the same- I tried a second one just to give the benefit of the doubt to the chef and instantly regretted it. The other canapés left you flummoxed if you didn’t like pastry. So uninventive. The starter was already on the table as we were seated- this always makes me uncomfortable as one has no idea how long it has been there and frankly how many people have breathed all over it. The mains fish dish was seriously over cooked and the dessert was well- I see your point but this is Knightsbridge and frankly this is average. On top of all this, the floor is sprung so with herds of waiters stomping around all the time it makes for a seriously disturbed dining experience as you jolt around on your seat.
Mandarin- your prestige dictates you hit a high standard, you are falling short!!
Huge rooms with nice little treats placed out for kids, very thoughtful. One might think that this would be a hotel that kids were not that welcome, but we really felt the contrary. Excellent breakfast, nice pool and great concierge!
I was a guest of a friend, it was outstanding.
Staff, service, the suite was to die for in all aspects.
Room service was the best I have ever experienced from Dubai, Saudi or Kuwait, this paradise excels.
We have lost count at how many times we have stayed here. What we have not lost count of is the impeccable service at every stage of the stay. Absolutely faultless to the smallest of details on your hotel room, to the recognition of the staff no matter what time of the day or night. If you want it they can fix it. Food is fabulous, the bar serves delicious cocktails and everyone knows what they are doing. The only hotel that does it for me in London. If you only take one hotel night a year this hotel is the one! Cannot wait for the next visit !

So much selection..we wanted to stay dor a few days so we could try everything. Service was great..owner even came to each table and handed out her business card. Price during week was only 21.50 for seniors. Would go back again and again.
