Having stayed at Coworth Park before, our expectations were exceptionally high. We were not disappointed in any way. From the warm reception at check in, as we marvelled at the stunning Christmas decorations, to the fabulously friendly service at the Champagne Bar our brief stay was outstanding. We had an executive room on the second floor, where the bed was...

We had the pleasure of attending The Dorchester hotel for a charity ball this week and were reminded of the wonderful, atmospheric ambience of the place. This is particularly so now that it has festive Christmas decorations. The area for tea has wonderful aromatic smells of cinammon and cost lighting and decor. Pop in for lunch, tea or dinner with...

The Dorchester is a luxury hotel with a history. It has beautifully decorated interiors and the service is very attentive and friendly. The rooms are well equipped and the bedding comfortable. One can only regret, like in many hotels in London, that the windows isolation (noise, heat and wind) is really lousy, which means that the room was much colder...

Simply the best, better than all the rest. This is just the best hotel I have stayed in without doubt in London and top 3 of my limited world experiences, as it manages to combine quality and sophistication with a totally relaxing atmosphere that never even hints at being pompous. The staff are warm and friendly and give you just...

The location and service at the Dorchester can only be described as superb. Do you like pubs? Good, many pubs are located just around the corner. Do you like strolling in the park? Perfect, just walk across the street. Up for the theater? No problem, see the theater coordinator in the lobby. The concierge staff will strive to help you...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dorchester occupies the most prestigious acre and a half of real estate in the world, in the heart of Mayfair overlooking the glorious green expanse of Hyde Park. The preferred hotel of British society, The Dorchester embodies the highest service values whilst its design and character exude 1930s glamour with a contemporary edge. Prized for its spacious and beautifully designed rooms and suites, The Dorchester’s restaurants and bars - Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade – also attract Londoners and the glitterati alike. The Dorchester Spa was recently transformed to create the most desirable and indulgent pampering destination in London with a uniquely named Spatisserie for tea and cake. ... more   less
