This gracious 5-star retreat from bustling London defies cliché, as it really does feel like someone’s welcoming home – and a rather grand one at that! Built in 1890, the interior of the beautiful Victorian building is adorned by fascinating paintings, fine porcelain and well-worn books. The Drawing Room is the heart of the hotel, and guests are invited to enjoy complimentary tea and homemade biscuits at 4pm, champagne at 6pm, hot chocolate and biscuits from 9:30pm. French windows open out onto a peaceful private garden to which guests enjoy exclusive access.
This level of charm is found throughout the hotel. All 35 theatrically themed bedrooms are generously sized, individually decorated and steeped in bygone elegance Most of the suites also enjoy a cosy working fireplace and tranquil views over the private Cadogan garden.
Before dinner enjoy a tipple from the well-stocked honesty bar. There’s a host of fantastic restaurants on the doorstep, but if you feel like staying in, enjoy some of the finest room service in London. Each visitor’s every whim is anticipated and fully met by the Draycott’s concierge service – and with such a wealth of attractions nearby, from London’s best shopping to the glamour of the theatre, you’ll never be short for something to put a sparkle in your eye.
