“Special afternoon tea is lovely surroundings.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

For my mother's 65th and my 30th we wanted to find somewhere special for afternoon tea. After hours trawling the internet we decided to try the Covent Garden Hotel because the photos looked cosy and classy and there was a good range of cakes on offer!
We arrived for our afternoon tea and were stunned by the surroundings. The waiting staff were really kind and helpful and didn't once make us feel like country bumpkins! We were able to have extra sandwiches at no extra cost.
The afternoon tea was pricey but actually a mid range price for what you get in London. I would highly recommend for special occasions.

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions, both for business and for pleasure. All of the staff are incredibly helpful and make the stay a real pleasure.
All of the rooms are excellent, beds very comfy and bathrooms to the highest standards. The windows are all secondary glazed (unlike the Savoy) so the rooms are quiet and a good night's sleep is assured.
The guest bar on the 1st floor is a good area for meetings and the restaurant bar downstairs is buzzy, especially in the evenings.
Food is very good.
One of the biggest problems is getting one of the 42 bedrooms they have. You need to book well in advance.
We have tried other hotels when we can't get into the CGH, but nothing comes close.

Room Tip: They are all good but room towards the back of the hotel which backs onto Shaftesbury Avenue are a l...

I booked this hotel as part of a business trip and was truly impressed from start to finish. The hotel has amazing character with such quaint decor. The food in the restaurant is fantastic and the service is second to none. It may be my new favourite hotel in London.

Room Tip: Room 101 is gorgeous!

Covent Garden is one of those places that pretty much does everything right. The staff are brilliant - utterly professional but friendly too, and we are always welcomed back like we're coming home. The rooms are stunning, with fabulous design and wonderful bathrooms. The beds are huge and ludicrously comfortable - just the softest sheets and fluffiest duvets! The restaurant food is lovely, and being able to mix it up with the bar menu covers all bases. Room service has the same menus to choose from, so you don't miss out on anything. As with most hotels, there's a little residual noise from rooms above (maybe it's just our luck in always seeming to be beneath someone who gets the urge to move the furniture around at 4am) but this is a relatively small quibble. The hotel have always gone out of their way to accommodate the smallest or daftest request. There's nowhere else in London I'd rather stay. The spa is small and appointments mostly necessary but again, the staff have always found a way to help with last-minute requests and the spa staff are wonderful, too. The only thing that could make this place any better would be a pool!

We make a trip to London once a year, and would not think of staying anywhere else. The welcome is always exceptional - from arrival, to event organisation, to breakfast and all the way to departure - in fact after departure when I came to meet friends my shopping bags were collected by Kathryn in the restaurant, and looked after until I was ready to leave. They have got it all so right - design is evident everywhere you look, but instead of being cool The Covent Garden is all about warmth - so much cooler!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Covent Garden Hotel opened in April 1996 but the building dates back to the 1890’s when it operated as a French hospital. It is located in Monmouth Street, a charming cobbled street in the heart of the theatre district and surrounded by interesting boutiques, restaurants, cafes and bars. Covent Garden Hotel is "a quirky modern take on traditional English style." The hotel's interior has been dramatically designed by owner and design director Kit Kemp, and reflects her personal attention to detail. The ground floor is just like a stage set. A quietly bustling lobby leads into Brasserie Max, the hotel’s bar and restaurant. Up a sweeping stone staircase and into a sumptuous wood paneled drawing room and library, each with a log burning fireplace, quirky furniture and vivid upholstery. Downstairs there is a gym, private event space and a screening room. ... more   less
