We had a short 4 nights in London, but had a wonderful time! Visited Tower of London, Bridge, Buckingham Palace, saw Phantom of the Opera and just enjoyed the city!!
... I immediately grabbed some free wifi to let everyone know I was finally in London as I didnt have time before leaving Vienna to fill them in. I arrived around 1pm and had the day to explore some of the city. I dropped my bag off at the hotel and wondered around until I found a really cute cafe just down the street. I decided to grab some yogurt and a coffee before heading out to see some sites. The yogurt was by far the best thing I have ever eaten - legit so delicious. I also ...
... zip it up and he is like I've got this. I'm like no I can do it (trying to do it up, but struggling and turning red) he pushes me off and holds the lid down and just like that zips it up. He walks of smugly, little git.
I going to have one last photo of me before I set off. In case you don't know, my family are a bit mad and my dad thinks he is David Bailey. (see below pic) The Australian banners are pulled down from ...
... Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, old mate Big Ben (fun fact, he's just a bell), the Houses of Parliament, and perhaps the best part of the whole tour; the squirrels in St James Park.
Show me an Aussie who doesn't go crazy over squirrels.
I dare you. I had thought I'd got it all out of my system in the States. Turns out I hadn't. I squealed and stared and chased after them just as much as everyone else. They're so damn fluffy! Luckily, a guy on ...
... Trafalgar Square. After lunch walked to Leister Square and bought theatre tickets for Rock of Ages for Thursday night. Tubed back to Earls Court and relaxed until 6pm when we walked down to a pub for a steak pie and chips washed down with a pint of beer. Went to supermarket for a few supplies then came back to our room about 7.30. Still light and really warm. It has been a beautiful warm day today. Probably up to about 25 in the afternoon. Still 22 degrees at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Westbury Mayfair London
Thank goodness for location
Westbury was a big let down, fantastic location but very average rooms and neither friendly or unfriendly staff(not intrested seems appropriate).
Would not return to this hotel which is a shame because I loved the location and Loved London.
Perfect location and lovely Hotel
We visited London Jan 2005 for the london Boat show at Canary Wharf. The Hotel was a true 4* plus and was in a perfect location for Oxford St, Regents ST and the tube, with a choice of three tube stations within 5 minutes walk. All the theatres were accesible within a ten minute tube ride.
The hotel reception staff were professional and friendly, I had no complaints at all, the food was very expensive, but I knew that before we went and ate at one of the many restaurants and bars nearby.
For shopaholics the location is superb, five minutes walk to the centre of Oxford St, or ten minutes to Buckingham Palace.
A highly recommended Hotel, we booked online with last minute and paid £100 per night for a superior King, the rack rate is £285 plus Vat and breakfast.
Worst service I have ever seen in the whole world..
This is a first-class hotel (somewhere between four and five stars) in a great London location. It's just off Old Bond Stgreet, near all the great shops, the Burlington Arcade and more.
I had not visited London in 30 yrs. until our recent visit 14-18 Oct 2004. I spent weeks searching for a 4 to 5 star hotel at a price that I thought was palatable. Having found the Westbury as our final choice it is without regret that we chose this hotel. The hotel was impeccable in both service and cleanliness. The staff was without exception pleasant and helpful. Our room, a double was roomy and well furnished. Bed turned down at night and even a towel warmer and robes. Having traveled and lived in Europe for over 20 years this hotel was by far one that should be in the top 10 in popularity. The rate of $178(albeit from another web site) including a full buffet breakfast, was without a doubt unmatched. The location could not be better and definitely the palce to be to access the sights and shopping without the noise of a big city. I will be a repeat guest for sure.
stayed here in march 2004. location is wonderful, service was pleasant but sloppy & not helpful! they will smile & nod & tell you that they will take care of your request, but will do nothing. amenities were pretty good--molton brown toiletries. had problems with the room and the tiny gym--our first room was tiny but cozy, unfortunately the a/c did not work very well if at all. my husband broke the soap dish in the wc & they considerately moved us to a different room which was much much bigger and had wonderful working a/c, but wasnt as clean & telly did not work--ugh! and housekeeping kept taking away our hospitality tray and not replacing it. tiny gym was overheated, despite several calls requesting the heat be turned down (it was at least 85 degrees in there!) nothing was done. they try to pass themselves off as a top notch establishment but the service, facilites, and rooms fall a bit short. ok, but i would try else where before i come back. and bkfst at hotel was a rip-off if its not included with your room rate. paid $178/nite through brit airways. do not pay more, but definitely pay less if you can find better rate.
We stayed in this hotel for two nights during a weekend in London. Having lived in London for 12 years before moving to Hong Kong, I can say that the location is unbeatable. You have access to the Piccadilly, Jubillee, Victoria, and Central lines within a few minutes walk. Most of the time, you don't even need the tube because the restaurants in Soho/Mayfair, theatres in the West End, shopping on Bond and Oxford Streets are all within walking distance, amazing considering most Londoners spend half their lives on the tube. The room was a little on the small side as typical in London. The decor was traditional British. The service was fantastic. Call for extra towels or toiletries or attention to the air-con and someone turns up at your door within 2 min. I left my diamond earrings in the bathroom one day and called up the concierge (Mr. Simm). He said that he would see to the matter personally and duly collected them from my room and promptly put them in the safe until I returned to the hotel later that afternoon to collect them. The staff was attentive, professional, and courteous. The only problem we had with the hotel, unfortunately this is a big one, is that the bed was just not firm, unlike what one would expect from a quality hotel. This was terribly disappointing and I would caution those with sensitive backs to consider this before making a booking.
Great London hotel
You will go a long way to find a hotel in London with better attention to detail. Everything about this place is top-notch. Real luxury!
We stayed here for 4 nights on a package deal we won at auction and really enjoyed it. We stayed in a junior suite which was absolutely huge; enormous by London standards. The location is also great, right in the heart of Mayfair. The staff were courteous and helpful, although we will agree with the other review that the breakfast staff were surly. Luckily room service was part of the package, so breakfast in our room was a real treat. We also had the best meal we have ever eaten in London at the hotel restaurant.
Poor value for money
Room average - but service poor. Surly in dining room for breakfast - and inefficient at front desk. Checkout involved lengthy wait and errors on bill. Left expensive shoe shine kit in hotel room which was not returned. Better hotels at this pricepoint.
