October 2019 review

Room was spacious and furniture was very nice clean as well
Hotel location was also great
Staff was very friendly
Love the balcony option which gave us fresh air during our stay

Hotel lobby was cozy and nice

Well deserved 5-star hotel in great location

We stayed in the hotel as a couple over a long weekend in November. It’s well located opposite green park and takes only 5 minutes to walk to the next tube station. Rooms are nicely decorated and room service was extraordinary good.

Poor visit, been great before

In the previous 3000 reviews, I have a couple of 5 star reviews but this time I can’t. Based on this trip, I would not recommend, based on many previous trips I would, I have often rated 5 but on this occasion I booked the gourmet getaway and it just was not a relaxing break to say the least. On check in we were upgraded (thank you) and the rooms are lovely as always but the colleague on the desk had never heard of the package and I had to check all the details as he stated bed and breakfast rate - I therefore had to request a table in the restaurant( I had emailed a preferred time pre arrival but got no response) . Had a nice pre- dinner drink - great service in the bar and I thought that would be a nice lead into dinner but on arriving for dinner they new nothing of the deal and I had to try again explain it and The waitress had to run off to check it all out - I then had to explain to another waitress that we did not want to order as we were waiting for details of our deal to be confirmed ( kind of embarrassing) they eventually sorted and we began the meal - nice food, great wine and Jamie was an excellent waitress but starter had an ingredient missing that I had to point out ( it only had three ingredients too start with????) . We then got served a 5 course tasting menu with pairing wines in 1 hr and 15 minutes flat - kind of a rush never experienced that before - really became aware of the speed when we went back to the bar for a cocktail and the Waitress mentioned we can’t have been hungry as we were back so quick... I was disappointed at this point as we love the Athenaeum ( it was the first London hotel my wife and I stayed in as a couple) then in the morning, the bill arrived and I was charged for the five course tasting menu that was inclusive in the deal...now I was a little annoyed - the manager I complained to in the Morning was very understanding and I appreciated his actions. Unfortunately breakfast was also not good - my wife’s fried egg was frazzled and my sausages were burnt and the toast never arrived ( even though we specifically asked for it) .I never complained again as I was just Beyond caring by now... so in short please be better if we ever stay again and at the moment not sure I would.
