The Cavendish Hotel is a boutique base in central London, located on Jermyn Street in the fashionable district of St James’, where Fortnum and Mason shoppers rub shoulders with city types buying made-to-measure shirts. This stylish hotel offers luxe rooms, an award-winning restaurant and delicious afternoon teas.
The hotel’s location means that you’re never far from the action – the theatres of Piccadilly Circus and upscale shopping on Regent Street are both just a short walk away. Then a stroll in the opposite direction brings you to The Mall, gorgeously leafy St James’s Park and Buckingham Palace.
The contemporary guest rooms are fresh and stylish in design.
The AA Rosette Petrichor restaurant offers delicious modern British dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Seasonal and regional produce is accompanied by an excellent wine list. Take traditional afternoon tea in the Lounge, or sip on something short and strong in the Rosa Lewis bar before hitting the local dining scene.
This hidden gem of a boutique hotel is located on fashionable Jermyn Street, in the heart of Piccadilly. The Royal Academy of the Arts, Fortnum and Mason, the Burlington Arcade and The Wolseley restaurant are all iconic London hotspots in the neighbourhood. Within
walking distance you’ll also find theatreland, Leicester Square, Buckingham Palace
and Mayfair. Locations for a short break in the heart of the capital don’t really get better, or more high-end, than this.
How to Get There
Each year we stay at The Cavendish for my birthday weekend. The staff and hotel go out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Everything about the hotel is spot on. There is a birthday cake in my room and nothing is too much trouble .
The restaurant and breakfast 10/10
Thanks for making our stay memorable
Had been shopping in Fortnum & Masons with a friend and decided that we needed a little break and a pick me up. The bar at Fortnums was jam packed so went to find somewhere near by. The Cavendish was close by and so we decided to give it a try. The lounge bar wasn’t very busy so it was perfect. The decor was ok but not particularly exciting, however it was comfortable. The service was very good and the Tattinger champagne which was sold by the glass was very reasonably priced. Would recommend if you need to escape the crowds.
I'll start by saying this hotel came highly recommended to us, from friends who had stayed 2 years ago. Our overall experience was a bit underwhelming. I'll share our pros/cons:
-Great location between Mayfair and Picadilly - we walked many places
-Booked our LHR arrival/departure transfers through the hotel - made it very simple
-The staff found out we were celebrating an anniversary and had a bottle of wine waiting in the room for us - nice touch!
-Underwhelming lobby - felt more like a Holiday Inn - didn't feel the price matched up with the feel/vibe
-Incredibly slow elevators (lifts) - could easily take 10-15 minutes waiting for it to come
-Breakfast was a cluster - we had pre-paid based on reviews saying it was really good - not so much. The first morning we went was fine - the second morning, compltely chaotic, no one came to offer coffee/tea, couldn't get butter or jam (should have been on table), etc
-The room was quite warm - we turned the heat down as low as possible, but it was still way too warm, particularly at night
-We had requested early check in. We arrived around noon and were told the room wasn't ready yet, but they promised to call as soon as it was done. We happen to swing back around 2pm to find the room was ready and our luggage was already put in our room- no attempt to call was made. This was frustrating as we made it clear we wanted to get to our room as soon as possible.
-The biggest issue: SMELL -our room (primarily the bathroom) had a horrendous smell - smelled like raw eggs or sulfur - almost all day/night. After housekeeping would come you could tell they used a ton of cleaning products to try to mask the smell, but it was frankly unbearable at night. I wanted to switch rooms, but frankly we were only there a couple nights, and it became obvious how bad it was the second day, and we didn't have it in us to try to switch rooms
We were recommended this hotel by a local friend and it did not disappoint. If you are going to London and want to be on Jermyn street for the men's bespoke shops, or want to be near Mayfair for boutique shopping and high end dining out, this is your premium location. Right next door to Fortnum and Mason, two blocks to Green Park station, and walking distance to Buckingham Palace. The hotel is a simple, quiet, understated business hotel. The service is excellent, friendly and very accommodating. Because of the off street location, do not hesitate to ask bell captain for help with taxis and uber. They will make sure you get great service.
