We chose this hotel as we wanted a place with traditional charm. It is the epitome of a well run, classy English boutique hotel on a charming little street just a short walk from Herrods. The room was well kept and cozy. There is a quaint little bar off the lobby with excellent staff who remembered us by name.

We like this hotel. Excellent service and no fuss. And it is close to Harrods and Harvey Nichols. We booked a space in the garage for our car and were met at the door by the concierge as soon as we arrived. He parked it and it was returned next day very quickly.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.

The Capital also has their own award winning vineyard, Levin Wines, in the Loire Valley and a bakery that delivers to high end restaurants, hotels and clubs across london, The London Bakery.
