Everything was excellent from start to finish. Fabulous location with Hyde Park, Italian gardens and tube station and buses within 50 yards. Prebooked car parking space and had valet parking on arrival. Check in was faultless - indeed all staff from Sally Beck the General Manager to Nertila in the cafe and restaurant were all really welcoming and interested in ensuring we had the best stay possible. The room was super, breakfast delicious …. Would have no hesitation in fully recommending this hotel and already looking forward to our next stay when visiting London

Massive thumbs up from my wife and I. They accommodated us supremely well. Lovely rooms, superb views and Nipa Thai is well worth a visit too. Breakfast is definitely one of the best my we've had. Free electric car charging is a bonus. Location means you're just a short can ride from anywhere you need to be. Can't wait to return, well done and thank you for a lovely time Royal Lancaster London

I originally booked to stay at the Royal Lancaster for a business course, which was being held on-site. The service that I received from Rowena whilst booking my room far exceeded my expectations - she not only made the process effortless, but she went above and beyond to make sure that I was fully catered for. I was so impressed that I subsequently cancelled my stay with a neighbouring hotel the following week in order to stay again at the Royal Lancaster. Upon arriving, I was greeted swiftly by a member of the concierge team, who welcomed me by name, unprompted. I was served promptly and efficiently by the Reception team and was delighted to find that I could go straight up to my room, several hours before check-in. The room was spotlessly clean, felt welcoming, and was nicely stocked. The bed was comfortable, and the pillows beautifully soft. I returned from Day One of my course to find a complimentary bottle of wine and macaroons! The service really was impeccable, and I look forward to making the Royal Lancaster a regular haunt when down in London.

Our fourth stay of the year and the Royal Lancaster never disappoints. It consistently is above expectations with the helpfulness & very welcoming staff. Nothing is to much trouble at breakfast and also when having a drink or eating in the bar. Have stayed in 3 different types of room and all are extremely comfortable with high standards.

We have just left this hotel after a wonderful stay. The hotel is very well appointed, excellent customer service and we felt very welcomed. The views from the 15th floor are stunning, especially at sunrise. If you are looking for a superb quality hotel in London, this will do the job.
