not a high end hotel

We arrived from a flight at noon, ordered 2 Deluxe rooms for a lot of money. When arrived in the room we discovered there is a party with very loud music (very loud!), right outside the room. Impossible to stay in the room or rest. The party was in the hotel lobby (and not for gusts of the hotel…). Deep bases and very loud.
Regarding the noise - being in the room was like being in the party which suggested there is no sound protection (to expensive?). We could not sleep or rest after the flight, and the party took place for hours.
The hotel did not find a replacement and destroyed my first day in London.
The people who gave service were nice and polite but the bottom line I am feeling cheated.
As I see it - Sanderson only pretending to be a high end hotel.
We come to London frequently and there are a lot of very good hotel here – I will go to another hotel next time I am in London.

Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea
malcolm l

Took the family for this rather special afternoon tea,it's not cheap but it is very well done,all themed around Alice in wonderland,they don't rush you and allow two hours per booking.
The staff are very good ,the surroundings are excellent,but if you go make sure you book outside in the court yard ,this all adds to the experience .
My only gripe is a clean plate after the savoury things ,to eat the pastries would be nice

Reliable Hotel But Quirky

I alternate between the Sanderson and The London Edition on my stays in London. What I like about the Sanderson is that it is always fail proof. Super clean rooms, convenient, and no fuss. However, there are quirks. For one, it does not have the best sound proofing, which makes it a tad annoying on the weekends when it is somewhat of a party scene. The design of the rooms are meant to be intentionally off center - bed is placed crookedly in a perfectly square room. Bathroom vanity is also placed crookedly from a perfectly rectangular room. If you are a Type-A person, like me, this may just drive you a bit crazy. Nevertheless, service is always top notch so I will continue to stay here for future business trips.
