DAY 3 ALICE'S BLOG
Today started off again with a delicious breakfast in the hotel restaurant. After that we met our tour guide, Peter. He took us to the Cutty Sark which is a sailing vessel that took coal to Australia in return for cotton. The figurine on the mast head was a witch with a horse tail in her hand because as legend has it, …
LONDON DAY 2 - NELL'S BLOG
This morning we had a splendid breakfast of eggs Benedict, blueberry pancakes, eggs florentine, porridge with brown sugar and whiskey. Our tour guide, Juliana, picked us up at the hotel and we looked at Princess Elizabeth's house and St. Paul's Cathedral. After that our guide took us to Westminster. There were so …
LONDON DAY 1
Today was our first full day in London and it started out early. We woke up and went right to the stables in Hyde Park. I got a blue roan horse named Blue, Nell got a chestnut pony named Cavalier, and David got a piebald named Monti. Hyde Park was beautiful, and we even got to trot a little bit. I was …
... looking at the London Eye and having a really amazing viewpoint of the fireworks and being right in the thick of it.
We had to find somewhere to eat, but there wasn’t a lot of options in this part of town. So we settled for having Maccas and even though the Southbank area was busy with people, we managed to get our food quickly and ate standing on the river. We then settled on the bridge with our most desired spot which gave us an awesome view. The ...
Today was a super quiet day by our standards as of late--owing to the fact that we got out of bed after 11:00 after not falling asleep until after 3:00 this morning--but, as with everything we've done so far in London, was totally memorable anyway.
First, let me just say that I am so pleased that we've been able to, you know, do stuff while we're in London. If you know Aidan and I, you know that we're two of the laziest homebodies ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Chesterfield Mayfair London
The Chesterfield could be a really nice hotel if it wasn't for the arrogant staff. I wondered whether some of the staff could be any more disdainful and patronising. It's a pity because the rooms are very plush, the restaurant food excellent. Still, I did not enjoy my stay - simply because of the staff.
Loved the Chesterfield
Stayed August 27-31. Room was small but not claustrophobic. Bathroom was lovely. Staff was outstanding. Location is perfect. We will stay there again when in London. The public rooms are like being in an English country house.
This is a great choice!
Fantastic hotel! Great Staff & location! We stayed here for 4 nights and wish we were still there! I wanted a hotel that was very british and this fit the the bill! Very accomodating staff and lovely, large size double room! It was very quiet at night. We will be back!
Nice Hotel with TINY ROOMS
My wife and I stayed in this hotel September 29 and 30, 2003 in room #503. It is a well run, well maintained hotel with a friendly and helpful staff in a great location. However, the rooms are TINY. I am of average size and build (5' 11" and 185 pounds) and my wife is petite, we had a difficult time sleeping in their "Deluxe Double" room. The "Deluxe Double" appeared to be a single room with an extra set of towels. My son had room #504 another "Deluxe Double" that was the same size.
What a great place to stay everything was outstanding. The staff hepled with directions and the concierge even gave us a suggetsed vewing spot for the changing of the guard..He was spot on! Nice and quiet..freindly staff. that can take care of your every need. The breakfast was good and fast. and we had no problems with the bill. everything was handled in the most professional manner. for the price we paid it was oustanding. would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting London.
Quaint, Quiet, Great staff and location
Stayed at this hotel w/my 18 yr old son as a B-Day Graduation gift. It was his first Atlantic Crossing; arrived early am, exhausted from flight and transfer. Were greeted w/a cheery smile by receptionist! Check in expediant. Lobby warm and inviting. After being shown to our room, recieved follow up call, asking if all was well. Room was comfortable, with comp bottle water, coffee/ tea service, hot cocoa, and a red carnation. Staff was always friendly & helpful. They assisted us with directions, restaurant recommendations, tour arrangements. Good location in quiet, upscale Mayfair, near Green Park, Buckingham Palace tube stops. We loved this hotel and would highly recommend it!
I stayed at this hotel in August and was upgraded to a superior double from a standard double room. The location above all is excellent. It is hard to find a quiet room in many parts of London, but this hotel is exemplary in this regard. The breakfast was plentiful and included in the room rate. My only reservation is that room service was slow, but the hotel appeared to be virtually full and the staff very busy. I will definitely stay there again.
A wonderful hotel!
We loved the Chesterfield Mayfair! It is a beautiful, charming little hotel. The restaurant is wonderful and we really enjoyed the piano bar. It is close to public transportation and Buckingham Palace. We've stayed there twice and wouldn't stay anywhere else while in London.
Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else
My wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon. It was beautiful. The staff was wonderful and the location is great. Located near Buckingham Palace and great access to public transportation.
Loved the Chesterfield
We have stayed at the Chesterfield on two occassions with a couple of years between the visits. We were greeted and warmly welcomed by name by all the staff! We had a Junior Suite which had all the ammenities we needed and we enjoyed both our visits and will definitely return.
