1Make sure you use your concierge With a wealth of knowl­edge, ex­pe­ri­ence and up-to-date in­for­ma­tion on at­trac­tions, a concierge will pro­vide a per­son­alised ser­vice. Whether you re­quire a res­tau­rant reser­va­tion, a per­sonal guided tour of Lon­don or you would like us to plan your day, we will utilise our ex­pe­ri­ence to de­liver a mem­o­rable stay. I was once asked to clean a one-of-a-kind pair of di­a­mond-en­crusted shoes. We of­fered the as­sis­tance of a di­a­mond dealer known to us in Hat­ton Gar­den. 2 We can get you into top res­tau­rants Our guests re­quest res­tau­rant book­ings at Sexy Fish, Zuma, Novikov Asian and Kitty Fisher’s.

3See the best of Lon­don in one day I would start the day bright and early with a Blue Badge guided tour; af­ter this I would head to some of the cap­i­tal’s most iconic land­marks such as the Houses of Par­lia­ment and the Lon­don Eye, fol­lowed by a tra­di­tional af­ter­noon tea. Then I’d go on to The Bri­tish Mu­seum or per­haps take a be­hind-the-scenes tour of the Royal Al­bert Hall. To round off the day, I’d en­joy a pre-the­atre din­ner at The Ivy fol­lowed by a West End show. 4 Make sure you en­joy a quintessen­tially English ex­pe­ri­ence My top three would be watch­ing Andy Mur­ray at Wim­ble­don, an Ashes Test match at Lord’s Cricket Ground and a day’s shoot­ing in the Cotswolds. From the mo­ment you en­ter, you are greeted by warm, friendly and pro­fes­sional staff. We have the Rib Room Res­tau­rant serv­ing the finest Bri­tish cui­sine; the Peak Health Club & Spa with a swim­ming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms; ac­cess to Cado­gan Gar­dens, pro­vid­ing our guests with a hid­den botan­i­cal oa­sis in the mid­dle of Knights­bridge; and two ten­nis courts.
