Steeped in history, this elegant hotel is reputed to be one of London's oldest, having opened in 1885. The team are welcoming and friendly, and all requests are skilfully dealt with. Bedrooms, including suites and penthouses, are equipped to very high standards and offer all modern amenities. Eating options are The Northall and the new Kerridge's Bar & Grill – chef Tom's first foray into London dining. The Bassoon Bar is the place for cocktails and it's worth noting the counter which is actually an elongated piano. Afternoon tea is another highlight, served in the stunning lobby lounge. The Espa Spa offers world-class facilities. Valet parking is available.
