Ranked #97 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
British to the bootstraps, right next to Buckingham Palace, run by the same family for four generations, old-school, old-money.
Dining is taken very seriously here, with English cuisine (steak and kidney pudding or beef from the trolley) and a cracker of a wine list.
Afternoon tea is devilishly good – Earl Grey tea macarons, teensy ribbon sandwiches (take it in the lounge or the lovely garden).
Size 69 bedrooms and suites
Hotels.com genuine guest review “Love the library and bar for tea or a late night drink.”
Did you know Kate Middleton stayed here the night before the royal wedding.
