Perfectly placed between the leafy confines of Marylebone Village and the shopping mecca of Oxford Street, the Mandeville Hotel is a 142-room boutique crash-pad within easy reach of Selfridges and Liberty. Decor errs on the feminine side with towering vases of white roses, scented candles and damask walls in some of the bedrooms (plus the occasional floral bedspread). However, the Reform Social & Grill pulls back the masculine factor with a zinc-topped bar, leather banquettes and a hearty menu. Check out the Vintage Afternoon Tea with locally sourced eats, such as John Ross Scottish smoked salmon and goats’ curd from Thornby Moor Estate in Cumbria.
In the Area
Located just a five-minute walk from Oxford Street, guests will be perfectly placed to shop ’til they drop. Find everything here from high-street fashion favorite Topshop to independent-boutique-filled side streets like the quirky Carnaby Street. Further down the road is Selfridges, one of London’s best-loved department stores. Housed in a grand building by the Bond Street tube, it mixes designer fashion with high-street brands, and the hallowed Food Hall is not to be missed. For more food fixes, Rhodes W1 is the brainchild of celebrity chef Gary Rhodes, and even if you’re on a budget (or have blown it in the shops), you can get an impressive prix-fixe dinner here at an excellent price.
How to Get There
Good for an affordable and centrally located afternoon tea. Good service. Average food though the scones were served warm and pretty close to perfect. Nothing that is going to impress anyone, but if you want a respite from the Oxford Street madness, it’s ok.
A great welcome from all the staff. Checked in and left luggage for when the room was ready. We left and had a lovely lunch in one of the many local restaurants ( literally, one minute walk away) and then received a call to say our room was ready. Our case was waiting for us in the room.
Superior room ; quite small but clean and tidy. Double bed, armchair, desk, stool and wardrobe in the bedroom along with mini bar, tv and coffee/tea making facilities ( two of us in the room but only one cup). Shower over the bath ( good power ) nice toiletries, heated towel rail and wall mounted phone in the bathroom. Oh, and a loo of course 😂.
Breakfast was nice; fruit, cakes, cereal and buffet style hot items ( scrambled eggs were gorgeous), great service from lovely staff who served tea/coffee and special requests.
The location is absolutely superb, literally 4 minutes walk to Oxford Street and loads of restaurants nearby. As a female, I would feel confident staying in this hotel on my own ( I was with my husband this time) due to the hotel staff and the location.
Good value for money. Would definitely stay again.
I was fortunate to attend a private lunch here last April. It was so good that when I had to arrange a lunch for a party of 12 in December it was the obvious venue. Tatiana couldn't have been more helpful and everything went perfectly from the moment we first spoke until we left the venue. Everyone in my party thought the quality of food, the surroundings and the staff were excellent and the price was very reasonable for the time of year. It all helped to make a brilliant event. We will be back!
What an absolute gem and a total wonderful surprise this hotel was. Everything is excellent from the friendly helpful staff to our room which was modern and spotless. Extremely cosy hotel .... what a find. We will revisit without a doubt.
I stayed here with my partner over the weekend and the room, staff and venue was excellent. I will definitely be staying here again!! The beds and pillows were the comfiest I’ve ever slept in, a 9.30am lie in - bliss!
Thank you for a lovely stay!
