Lonely Planet review
The classiest, most traditional hotel in BA. Old-world sophistication and excellent service will help erase the trials of your long flight into town, while the bathtub Jacuzzi, Hermès toiletries and Egyptian-cotton bed sheets aid your trip into dreamland. There’s also an excellent restaurant, elegant tea room, champagne bar, fine spa, indoor swimming pool and – if you’re in a deluxe suite – butler service.
