More about The Stafford Hotel London

More about The Stafford Hotel London

The Stafford Hotel London is for those with a high taste for 5-star hotels and a penchant for the history of the great British Kingdom. The hotel is comprised of three distinctively exquisite houses - the elegant, historical Main House, the cozy countryside-styled Carriage House, and the contemporary, ritzy Stafford Mews - all harmoniously united under one property. The kingdom’s great history can be witnessed in every corner from the Victorian city residence of Lord and Lady Lyttelton to an air raid shelter in the depth of its 380-year old wine cellars. The hotel also has the advantage of a prime location. It is located in the heart of St. James, the historical locality of central London, and surrounded by Buckingham Palace and St. James’ Palace.

Exceptional in every way”

I spent 3 nights at The Stafford in February 2017 after a trip to Cambridge. I have been to England more times than I can count and have always wanted to stay at The Stafford. I stayed this time because of a discounted rate offer. It is a beautiful, elegant hotel with truly exceptional service. I have stayed at hotels all over the world and it is truly in the top tier in terms of elegance and service. The staff know their guests names and are of a very high professional standard, anticipating their guests needs. Great personal service without being obtrusive. Not just a place to spend the night, The Stafford is truly a wonderful experience in its own right.

Luxurious Boutique Hotel”

We stayed two nights in a junior suite at the Stafford and it was wonderful. The room was exactly as shown -- no surprises. The jr suite was very large, comfortable and quiet -- the bathroom was almost as large as the bedroom, with a wonderful shower and separate bath tub, two sinks. The staff was professional and friendly -- warm and welcoming. We had a peek in the American Bar, but because the weather was hot we choose to enjoy our drinks outside in the courtyard. The courtyard is a charming, relaxing place to enjoy breakfast or a drink -- we did both. We enjoyed dinner at their restaurant The Game Bird. Definitely would stay again at the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Our eighth visit the best, except one!”

My husband and I had our honeymoon at the Stafford 30 years ago and have returned many times. Our visit last week was absolutely perfect. The hotel has been updated beautifully and the Christmas decorations were lovely. We even had a small tree in our room. The staff was superb and we truly hated to leave.

Excellent Stay”

My 18 year old daughter and I had a perfect stay at the Stafford. The room was spacious with a luxurious bathroom and the concierge was very helpful with booking West End show tickets at the last minute. We enjoyed adding our Baltimore Orioles hat to all the others hanging from the ceiling. The staff was incredibly gracious throughout our stay.

Perfect location, homy, gorgeous.”

I stayed for ten days. The staff were all extraordinary. American bar is very cozy, with cool and friendly bartenders and staff and the Game Bird Sunday roast was yummy. Rooms are very old fashioned British style, with a touch of real Elegance. Hotel location is great, with easy access to underground, few minutes walk to Mayfair, Piccadilly circus, SoHo, Covent garden, and right next to beautiful parks.

Splendid hidden gem”

The Stafford has it's own private entry into green park near Buckingham Palace. It also has a back entrance bringing you almost directly out to Fortnum and Mason. The room I had was tiny but extremely well equipped and with splendid luxuries. I would definitely stay here again.

Very good overall”

We stayed at the Stafford for three nights. Overall it was very nice and enjoyable. The location also was superb. My biggest complaint was the mattress, which definitely needed to be replaced. (I had a spring poking in my back, and it was rather like sleeping over a small trench, i.e. no lower back support)

Excellent service, quiet bedrooms, central location

I arrived at the hotel by car, late for an appointment. The staff whisked my car off to the car park and paid my congestion charge for me, they than arranged for a taxi to be waiting for me by the time I checked in. The room was well furnished and very comfortable. The only thing lacking was a view, but that didn't matter. The bar downstairs was very welcoming; there were plenty of local office workers there having a quiet drink before returning home.

Favorite little slice of Heaven”

We loved this hotel. And that says a lot because we are very picky and high maintenance. I originally wanted to stay at the Four Seasons and I’m so glad we decided on this boutique 5 star hotel. The staff was was increasingly service oriented. They reached out in advance and really dotted on us the entire trip. The location was perfect. Close to everything. We walked to a lot of places.
