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
Quick 2 night stay here on the way home to Cape Town. Nice ambience, friendly and helpful staff ( all of them ). Great room and the location for the West End is the best. Very close to Selfridges ( always a pleasure ) and Oxford Street / Hyde Park.
Would not hesitate to stay here again and will very much look forward to it when we do !
Well located hotel. Very clean. Close to lots of great restaurants. Staff are excellent. Hotel restaurant is very good also. Rooms are smallish but this seems to be the case all over London. It was my home for ten days. I will come back again.
Really enjoyed the staff, front desk and concierge service. Centrally positioned, close to all amenities in London central. Easy to get around. Enjoyed the simple pleasure of being able to get an umbrella from the hotel when unexpectedly needed.
