The Chesterfield Mayfair
Travel Blogs from London
Last day has arrived and it does seem like we have been here for more than just two weeks. I guess the constant travel from city to city has made this seem longer but it has been enjoyable and I will be glad to get back to Dallas.
Today we headed out to Greenwich with plans to see the Cutty Sark (and yes the scotch Cutty Sark is named …
Today we left Paris after another wonderful stay but much shorter than last time. We caught an early Eurostar to London so we were our of our hotel by 8 and on our way. Getting on the Eurostar is a bit hectic because you have to go through UK Passport control before boarding the train. Once we got on everything was smooth and we got to London on …
We decided that our next stop would be the famous White Tower. We saw the remains of the old Roman wall and the home of the ravens that have called this tower home for centuries, before ascending into the tower. The first surprise here came about three-quarters of the way up the stairs on the outside of the building; there a door stands open, revealing the bricked up stairwell where the bones of the young Edward V and his ...
... the people come and go. We decided to go for a walk as we saw people coming back to the hotel with shopping. It was quite late, so we went to check It out. The weather was oppressive and people were out everywhere, sitting on benches or walking around. Mostly men on their own or in groups. The boys were a bit nervous for us, so we all kept close. It was all a new experience for us and everyone at the hotel had been very polite and gracious. Wait and see what Dubai brings us ...
We woke up in attempts to try and make the changing of the guards at the Buckingham Palace by 11. We realized that wasn't going to happen so we decided to get a tour with one of the local groups. They offered a two story bus, walking and boat tour of the city of London; we also got our London Eye tickets through them for a discount as well! We saw multiple sights throughout the day...

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.
