Recently moved from my flat and forewarned the hotel that I would have a lot of luggage... I wanted to ensure that no one would physically have to carry my suitcases; but on arrival I found there was no trolley, only manpower and I felt that was a bit unfair especially for the people helping me! I was advised by reservations to get a King Room and booked the City King and it was small but it fit me and six suitcases without tripping over anything and the bed is huge and fabulous so I'd not focus too much on the room size as it has everything you will need. Unless of course you need to practise your ballroom dancing... then yeah maybe book somewhere else. The bed is luxurious in every way and super comfortable but the lack of space on bedside tables full of gadgets, no desk, no chest of drawers etc...it wasn't the right place for me so I checked out early and the hotel was wonderful in that regard. My room albeit on the 4th floor, had a view of solid grass which covered the window entirely hence all I could see was grass or green stuff ...I know it's a designers delight but I found it hard staying in that room with grass framing the only view, I hate to be mean but I hated it and bizarrely it made me feel stupidly sad. The room is super comfortable though, the bathroom is big and fabulous, the linens the towels, the little essentials for your shower etc, all well thought out and generous. The TV is enormous and has every channel including movies and yes it does get a little warm but only if you stand right next to it. There is an iPad,a mobile phone and best of all the bed moves up and down so if you want your feet raised ... just press a button. It's brilliant. They must've spent a fortune on the rooms. They provide a free mini bar and breakfast was included in my room and for me, I think this is an area that needs a lot of improvement...I found it to be a poor choice and I think for the price they charge per night the breakfast should be similar to my current hotel ie the Dorset Square where we have a fabulous choice with daily specials such as avocado on toast etc. However, having said that don't get me wrong as the setting and level of comfort and style in the dining room is as good as any five star luxury hotel, they've excelled in the design here. And you can order al la carte breakfast as long as you pay extra for it. I'd definitely recommend the hotel as a hands down fantastic place for a short holiday to London and it's a romantic place to stay...you won't see any screaming kids. The location is just off Ebury Street, a short walk to the Kings Road and other places. Best of all is the staff, they have a wonderful team running things ... Perhaps they could ensure guests can eat in the restaurant as it tends to get booked by in-the-know locals...the food is that good.

The cost of this afternoon tea is half that of the top hotels and as such I need to be mindful in the review. The hotel is situated in a quiet haven near Victoria station. It is small but the staff were friendly although the waitress did not have a good understanding of English. Sandwich selection was okay and the overall tea was a fair price but not somewhere I would visit again.

We had a lovely stay at the Eccleston Square hotel. Small but quint rooms, lovely bathrooms (with glass that frosts with a flick of a button)... technology like you wouldn't believe! They give you a cell phone to use throughout your stay - this was a superb feature being international visitors. Food was great quality, we had room service. We had a short stay and were so silly to leave our passports in the safe. The hotel was beyond accommodating and express mailed us the passports, we received them the next day. The best service you can ask for!!

Stayed here couple of years ago, location is good, very near Victoria for the tube. Really cool gadgets such as shower glass which can change from solid to clear by the touch of a button. Each room has an iPad which can control temperature, curtains etc. Very comfortable bed.

Each and every person I had any contact with was unfailingly helpful, friendly, and responsive—not a trace of "attitude" of any kind to be found. The front desk receptionist very helpfully recommended, and then arranged for, a car to Heathrow which was not much more than a cab plus train, and far more pleasant. My room was small but efficient, the design clever, the view from the window a lovely combination of tree tops and city, and the sheets and other amenities excellent. Since I last stayed, they opened a new restaurant, serving small plates. It was one of the best meals I had on a three-week trip in Italy and England: perfectly cooked lamb chop with grilled petite tomatoes and pieces of eggplant and a very tasty plate of mashed potatoes with truffle oil. The waitstaff were pressed with a large party in back and several tables in front, but were helpful and observant and flexible. Altogether a wonderful close to a great vacation.
