... his palace for a few years. In 1528, knowing that his enemies and the King were engineering his downfall, he passed the palace to the King as a gift. Wolsey died two years later in 1530. Within six months of coming into ownership, the King began his own rebuilding and expansion. Henry VIII's court consisted of over one thousand people, while the King owned over sixty houses and palaces.

Great welcome from Demetrios, fantastic location. Room good, needs up dating a bit, but for the money what esle would you expect. Staff excellant and fab breakfast incldued. Couldn't have asked for more.
Thank you for your kind words.

Searcys Roof Garden Rooms
I really enjoyed my stay at Searcy's. The rooms represented great value for money, being both clean and comfortable and the location would be hard to beat. The staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. My friend and I arrived later than planned and there was no time to go out for lunch before getting ready to leave for our evening event. The hotel provided a light snack in our room at a moment's notice. I will certainly stay again. Thank you Dmitri and Iwona - it's good to know that hospitality is still alive and well.
I arrived and was escorted to my room having been informed by the Manager that my room had been upgraded. What a pleasant way to commence a rapport!
I was curious to see what recent reviews might have been written about Searcy's in the years after we stayed there. My wife and two younger children stayed there a few years ago on the recommendation of a friend (who had stayed there years earlier), and we were pleased in some ways, but very unhappy in others.
We had real problems booking a hotel for mid-week end of July - right in the midst of the Tourist Season. This was one of the only available hotels.
Excellent Value for the Location
The very quiet location behind Harrod's cannot be beat; the room was nicely decorated and well-priced by London standards; the breakfast included in the room rate outstanding. All the staff were pleasant and helpful.
