Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great service. One of the best hotels we have stayed in. Highly recommend. Was given an upgrade without asking, what makes this hotel stand out is the friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the staff work so hard to make everything feel special just for you.

We stayed for a very short stay, and everything was absolutely wonderful, the room is wonderful and so comfortable, the butler and all the staff were so professional, the Rolls is an amazing touch of luxury .... We'll be back soon, and it will become our new home in London. The only weakness of the hotel is the missing SPA...

The Location of the Wellesley is perfect directly on the Tube Station Hyde Park Corner and as plus, you can use for free the Rolls Royce. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The Restaurant Oval is excellent especially the 5 course meal.

The Wellesley is a perfectly inoffensive and, broadly speaking, pleasurable hotel to have stayed in. Checking in was a relatively smooth process although it did seem a bit long-winded to have the receptionist show us to our room, a doorman take our luggage and then ten minutes later have the butler show us around the room and how things worked...

Great place for a bite to eat and relaxing cigar all year round. Cool in summer and suitably heated in the coldest of winters. Food a little expensive but of the highest quality. Get's busy after work, but the excellent staff will always squeeze you in.

Neighbourhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
London's finest boutique-grand hotel, The Wellesley offer contemporary luxury, Art Deco glamour and uncompromising service in London's Knightsbridge. Each of the 36 suites and bedrooms is individually finished with sumptuous décor and amenities. The jewel in the crown is The Wellesley Penthouse, overlooking Hyde Park, which occupies the entire sixth and seventh floors. The Jazz Lounge echoes to the spirit of Cleo Laine, Amy Winehouse, George Melly, Mica Paris - legends who have graced this building in its past years. The Crystal Bar and Oval Restaurant celebrate the 1920s glamour and style. The elegance of the décor, the sounds and the ambience may recall another era. The warmth of the service, however, is beyond compare. It is based only on our own aspiration - which is to exceed your every experience. ... more   less
