Good location

That was the third time that I stayed in this hotel. The location is really great. The staff is good. The wi fi not so good. . I guess last time was better. The problem is how to get a table at breakfast time. . Always completely booked.

Beautifully quaint

Beautifully quaint boutique hotel, wonderful location right by the tube. We had a deluxe room to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday coupled with a trip to Wimbledon.

The room was superb, clean fresh furnished with fresh fruit, biscuits, half bottle of champagne and a fresh rose. Lovely touches for our arrival. Great sized bathroom, excellent toiletries

We had dinner at Outlaws which we delayed twice (by us) due to a surprise visit from a friend (this was accommodated by the team- Shauna!! thanks so much)

Dinner was divine- we both had the hake. My husband isn't a big fish eater but he did said if he could cook fish as expertly as that he would eat it every week!
The desserts were extraordinary too. He had banana profiteroles and I the honeycomb ice cream sandwich. Simply stunning! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone including the service.

Checkout was efficient and breakfast was a good selection!

Was a superb experience just a shame we were too busy to spend more time in the hotel! Thank you!

Small Gem!

Nice cozy boutique hotel a few steps from Harrods. Our room was very nice, full kitchen with washer/dryer, microwave, etc. Bathroom all works well and is immaculate. The staff are always friendly and helpful....particular thanks to Charlotte who got our T.V. working....it was a fuse switch. The cleaning staff do a beautiful job, everything is clean and supplies are always on hand.
Our stay included breakfast which was nicely served by a caring and efficient staff.
The best surprise is no surprise and this hotel takes the stress out of travelling.

Solid choice for small finer hotel in Knightsbridge London
Reviewed 1 week ago

Returned here after many years hiatus. Still a fine place, many positives. There is an old world elegance, from the doorman to concierge. All staff is cordial and helpful. Our room was not large, but big enough, and with king bed, firm. Smallish bathroom but fine. The big plus here is the staff, always helpful. Ice to the room, no problem. Laundry to be picked up, be up in five minutes to collect it, etc.
The bar area is small but cozy and pleasant, again with professional servers and nice wine or cocktail selection. The bar menu is pretty good, for later dining, and dinner service in the restaurant is high quality.
I would like to see the bar open past midnight (in London!), and the place is quiet, staid. You don't come here for vibe or excitement, but for old-school professional service and a refined atmosphere, at about $500 USD/night, a nice choice.
