We just spent our 11th wedding anniversary at Sanderson and were blown away. The second we got there it was a different world. A few steps away from the Saturday madness of Oxford Street we arrived at about 4pm to a perfect oasis of calm. A wonderful welcome from John at reception got it off to a good start - no fawning like many other hotels, but just pleasant and genuine interest. A quick look around the lobby and you just know it's a very different type of hotel. We had a Deluxe Double on the 5th Floor overlooking the main street. Room was large and plenty of space to move around even with the huge sleigh bed dominating the the room. Very quirky without being over the top, the bed positioned at an angle bang in the centre of the room with a painting from the ceiling above, white drapes sectioning off the entrance to the room, various lighting options & candles, a massive full length mirror leaning casualy against one wall, wood flooring and the best bathroom I've seen to date. A glass wall separates the bedroom from the bathroom with an automatic movable drape curtain to provide more privacy, freestanding roll top bath tub, separate toilet, a huge powerful walk in shower and some quality toiletries. In all a space that we were happy to relax in. Going back downstairs for dinner around 8pm the lobby and bar had transformed into a club-style bar and had a totally different feel to it. We took a table in the garden courtyard where we stayed for the rest of the evening. The menu has changed since we last ate there and now it's just Malay rather than Asian-fusion, but this new menu works much better and with more value for money. A few more cocktails after dinner while the DJ did his thing and that was our evening. All the restaurant team were great and attentive but not too much so that it was anoying - spot on. Next morning the public areas were back to the relaxing cool as it was when we had first arrived. Didn't want to leave the next day - thank you Sanderson - pure quality - will be back!
