    Historical Traveler Reviews The Connaught London

    Absolutely Perfect..Quiet and Luxurious,

    from

    My wife and I stayed in a fourth floor suite (203-205) for three nights in December. The suite, Living room, Hall, Bedroom, Bathroom were clean, neat, extremely well furnished and very comfortable. Murano glass chandeliers in both the Living room and Bedroom. I've always thought the term "MiniBar" was very descriptive of most hotels inroom bars. The Connaught takes it to a new high. A large oriental cabinet with 1/2 pint bottles of spirits, wine, and a selection of four different types and sizes of glasses. Ice bucket always full...nothing Mini here.

    The staff was very helpful. I waited until the last minute to decide on dinner and Theatre for our first evening. The Concierge called the room an hour later with reservations for both. Excellent work!

    The public areas are very inviting and comfortable. Normally I don't visit the hotel bar because most are loud, garish and uncomfortable. The Connaught's isnt. We had after dinner drinks and I enjoyed a fine cigar in the bar on two of our evenings. It's was very enjoyable.

    This hotel is expensive, but if you value service, comfort and convenience it's well worth it.

    Great hotel in Mayfair

    from

    Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Connaught. Absolutely superb experience. We had a suite (117/18) that was fabulous and super luxurious, staff was very friendly, and the quiet location in Mayfair nice. It is an easy walk to shopping on New Bond and Oxford, St. James, and Hyde Park. Concierge was great in getting restaurant reservations. Highly recommended!

    Really great, quiet hotel:

    from

    We spent a couple of nights recentley at the Connaught. The area is fantastic, very pretty. Our room was beautifully decorated and quite large. Bigger than I expected. My only complaint was that the concierge were not very helpful and really didn't seem interested in doing much of anything but talk to each other. Other than that, it was great value for what we paid!

    Winter in London

    from

    Spent a week at the Connaught in February 2003, arriving on the former BA 1. The driver from the Connaught, not a contract worker, picked us up.

    Arrived with my wife and infant daughter.

    Concierge very helpful. Arranged tickets and train transportation to Manchester where we saw ManU play Arsenal in the 03 FA Cup.

    Nice location, cozy rooms and a very intimate feeling.

    Next time I'm in London, I would like to try the Four Seasons at Hyde Park that seemed nicer.

    Loved it yeah yeah yeah

    from

    Stayed here for two nights on business. I found the staff very helpful and attentive. Its certainly the best hotel I have stayed at in London so far. I found the Angela Hartnett restaurant first class allround. Maybe my judgement was swayed a little. Sat at the next table was Paul McCartney and George Martin.

    We called it the 'can not'

    from

    We stayed at the Connaught several years ago and thought that the service was so lousy that we found ourselves referring to the place as the "Can Not" hotel. However it's in a lovely section of town and it's fun to walk around in.

    A Refuge In London

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Connaught last July and have already made reservations to stay there again next summer. I've stayed at a number of deluxe London hotels and really enjoyed the club-like atmosphere of the Connaught.For anyone who wants a central and quiet location, this is the place to stay. We walked to Le Gavroche and to Gordon Ramsey at Claridges from the hotel. It is also a relatively short walk to the Ritz, shopping and Berkely Square.We ate at the restaurant in the hotel and had a very nice dinner and enjoyed the American Bar. The syaff was friendly and helpful and weren't placing bets in my view as one writer noted.

    Aging rather ungracefully, I'd say

    from

    I stayed four nights in a top floor suite late august 2003. The concierge was busy placing bets and could not be bothered by waiting customers. The service others talk about did not exist. Room service did not even pick up the phone. When I asked to borrow an adapter, I was advised that I could by one at Dixon's on Oxford street. The rooms were terribly dated; last remodeled in the early 60's I imagine. The bathrooms... not what you'd expect at Connaught prices. The phonesystem is shot and your line won't hang up once you finish a call. The only reason I'll set foot here again is to eat at Angela's restaurant; she knows how to cook. However, the ambiance and service one might seek by staying at the Connaught is found in spades at the Ritz, and that's where I'll go back to next time.

    Great, quiet hotel

    from

    We just got back from a stay in London at the Connaught Hotel.

    Everything was as I had hoped- the room was pretty, clean, had a teriffic bathroom, nice view, not too small. Best of all, unlike some of the other well-known hotels in London, on a quiet corner in Mayfair.

    Many of the other hotels facing the parks that we had considered turned out ot be surrounded by 6 lanes of traffic. The service was excellent and friendly, no attitude. The Concierge's desk was always helpful. The nicest menu in the place was on the Terrace, rather in the Gordon Ramsay- sponsored restaurants. We ate dinner one evening in The Menu restaurant at the hotel and found it not worth the money. I don't mind paying a lot for dinner if it is truly memorable ( we once spent $800.00 for dinner for 2 at Alain Ducasse) but one could get a truly spectacular meal at Daniel in NYC or Galtiero Marchese in Italy for the same price one pays for an uninspiring dinner here. Be that as it may, I will never stay anywhere else in London.

    Incredible experience!!!!!

    from

    This hotel was amazing... from the moment the doorman extended me his white gloved hand to help me exit my taxi I knew I was in for an adventure. The wonderful gentlemen who were at my service couldnt do enough for me... my bags were whisked away and I was led up the architecturally stunning wooden staircase to my room. There was a small foyer with a door to the inner room and another to the marvelous marble and chrome bath. The room was decorated in soft yellows, greens and burgundy... a pale green murano glass chandelier lit the room... and the furniture was beautiful rich dark wood... the view was of the rooftop flower gardens. My butler unpacked my clothes and made sure that I took the umbrella with me as I ran out the door. When I arrived back from my afternoon of exploring I was soaked to the skin and the same doorman took my wet umbrella and led me to the red drawing room where the concierge asked me if I would like some hot tea while he had the butler draw me a hot bath! My dinner at the hotel was also incredible... even as a woman dining alone I was treated like royalty. Dinner was superlative... fois gras terrine, dover sole, champagne and a spring cup for dessert that I still dream about. John, the head waiter from Wales was one of the nicest people that I have ever met... he made this one of the nicest dinners I have ever enjoyed even though I dined alone. This hotel is magical and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a taste of the good life. The special rate for my room was relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels of similar stature and location.

    Once I had recovered from a nice walk in the sun, we hopped
    on a Thames River cruise. With the London pass, our ticket allowed us to get on
    and off where ever we liked along the river. As we had already been to most of
    the sites the boat stopped at, we were mostly on just for a relaxing time and
    to see the sites from the river. We had a nice time on the boat and got off for
    half an hour at Greenwich. We both enjoyed the sun ...

    Firstly to pick up my P45 from work, which meant seeing my old workmates again! It was nice to see them and they even said I had some colour...which I guess is the non-insulting way of saying 'giiiirll you need sunscreen'.

    I dealt with all I needed to do with my tax to the best of my abilities (didn't actually sent it off because I needed help knowing if I needed to sign some part of it) and then ran into my dear friend Nathan.

    ... guy friends who are studying abroad in London as well. The last stop on the pub crawl was actually a club inside of an old theatre and it was so so cool!!

    Saturday started with brunch at this famous pancake place called Old Dutch Pancakes. My nutella, banana, and nut pancake was more of a crepe and it was delicious! We then made our way back to Buckingham Palace where we saw the changing of the guards which was pretty cool! Sean then brought us to Borough ...

    ... The armors and weapons were so incredible, both ceremonial ones and real, practical ones. I've read almost all the historical novels written by Phillipa Gregory, a British author. They are the perfect combination of British history book and romance novel, haha. And I could just see how visiting a place like this would inspire one to study and write about events that have (or may have..) taken place here. I then walked on the wall and checked out Bloody Tower where the two young ...
