Location

This top end hotel is one of the best-kept secrets in London - with a five star location to match its accolades.
It is tucked discreetly down a quiet side road that happens to be slap bang in the heart of beautiful Mayfair.
But there is nothing pretentious or stuff about this divine hotel. It's a few minutes walk to Buckingham Palace and 15 minutes to Piccadilly Circus, but feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The luxury hotel is located in the heart of Mayfair

Bedrooms

The hotel offers 129 luxury guest rooms and suites as well as 10 sumptuous apartments of one, two or three bedrooms.
Our deluxe double was a good size and beautifully decorated, and came with a bath - a rare luxury these days.
The vibe is rock and roll meets Hollywood, with teal velvet bed heads and black and white pictures of A-listers dotted around.
Our room had a Krups coffee machine, robes, slippers and bottles of water as well as a range of mini bar options.
Due to Covid-19 regulations toiletries had been removed from bedrooms, but we were handed a cute package of smellies at check-in.

All the rooms boast different colour schemes and layouts


Food & Drink

Our stay included an incredible three course meal and glass of champagne at Ormer, the hotel restaurant which is a destination in itself due to the head chef - TV's Shaun Rankin.
We ate melt-in-the-mouth crumpets that were like cakes as we waited for starters of heritage tomatoes and feta, followed by Dorset lamb cutlets with spiced aubergine and pomegranate finished with delicious Black Forest gateaux trifle.
For a five star hotel and restaurant in Mayfair the wine is superbly priced, starting at £18.95 for a delicious Chenin Blanc, bargain.
The icing on the cake had to be the staff, who couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly.

Facilities

There is a stunning Drawing Room next to the lobby where afternoon tea is served, as well as Manetta's bar, a decadent cocktail bar which has been popular with celebs.
It's low lit and intimate and the decor gives a nod to the 30s when it was a popular hangout for the literary set.
There is also a gym.
