What more to say than what is in the title?! Hotel very close to Buckingham Palace. Next to, but out of they way to Piccalilli Circus. Rooms were big enough, clean and tidy. Rooms with views! Would highly recommend.

We have just returned from a two night stay. The room was excellent with views looking at the London eye and Big Ben. We ate in the restaurant which was superb. Breakfast was faultless, all the staff we met were professional and friendly. The hotel position is so central and yet so quiet so all in all the Cavendish ticked...

We have stayed at The Cavendish before and enjoy it's prime location. Rooms are comfortable but can be noisy from numerous air conditioning units at the back of the hotel where rooms look out onto.

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
