Central London boutique hotel stay close to Bond Street and Mayfair, with full English breakfast

The Lowdown

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.

Wedding Anniversary
Reviewed 1 week ago

On arrival to the room we were greeted with rose petals on the bed and a bottle of champagne on ice, the hotel knew it was our anniversary, was such a lovley touch, the room service was delivered at a high standard and the staff were just as accommodating, the concierge were more than happy to assist at any time, overall the hotel was comfortable and spotless and made our weekend memorable

Excellent service and terrific accommodations

I had a wonderful experience at the Cavendish. I was there for a full week on business, and I couldn't have been more comfortable. The room was terrific; everything was very clean, new, and well maintained. The staff was incredibly welcoming, upbeat and helpful. The location is, of course, the best there is, but the prices are surprisingly affordable! Great price for a great hotel. 10/10, would recommend highly.

Really nice hotel but terrible restruarant

This was our first visit to The Cavendish Hotel. It is a lovely and spotlessly clean hotel based in a beautiful part of London just behind Fortnum and Mason. The reception and concierge staff were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The room was nice, decent size and the bed was very comfortable. The only down side to the room was the building work that was going on across the road. This obviously was not the fault of the hotel but nothing was mentioned at reception even when they tried to sell us an upgrade it was for a better view from the room. The lounge and bar in the hotel was usually empty but had a good stock of drinks and the staff were very knowledgeable, welcoming and friendly. The only down side to the stay was the restaurant. The food and the service was quite simply terrible. At the evening meal we both ordered sirloin steak, one medium rare the other medium. They both came medium to well done and had nothing more than a small pinch of watercress on the plate. The chips as a side order made each meal approximately £35 each. We made an attempt to eat it as we were starving, but had to stop and complain as the steak was tasteless and looked and tasted like a really cheap cut of meat. The waiter we complained to stated that we would have to pay for the meal as we had already eaten some of it and then write in to the hotel. He must have caught me on a good day as I agreed to do this. He never suggested to go and get the manager. The next morning at breakfast we asked for a pot of tea that only came on the third time of asking and we had to ask for fried eggs as the scrambled eggs looked like they were swimming in liquid. These took 15 minutes to come. The bacon wasn't that tasty either. The following evening we did not go back to the restaurant but did find a little gem across the road from the hotel. It was a restaurant/bar called 45 Jermyn Street were the food, drink and atmosphere was excellent. Overall I would go back to stay at the hotel as it was a good stay, but I wouldn't go back to the Petrichor restaurant.

Top and friendly hotel right in the midst of things!

from being met at the door of my taxi too the overall welcoming feeling it was a perfect stay. I had a rather small room at the top flor and her Majestys builders were rumbling about accross the street but it did not bother me that much. Both the food in the resturant and roomservice was exelent and so the service. All in all a very pleasent experience and therefore higly recomended. I'm gooing back for christmasshopping, this is now my hotel in London.

Location, Location, Locatin

This is the second time we stayed at this location. The first time was 25 years ago when it was the Forte Crest. It is located a block off Piccadilly and easy walking distance to Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, etc. The hotel is reasonably priced considering the location. The rooms are not big, but it was enough for our two night stay. The service is excellent and the rooms are clean and bright. If we're in London again, we would definitely stay here.
