It's so lovely to be welcomed into a good hotel, to see the exquisite flowers and to be waited on so professionally Our afternoon tea for three was faultless! Not cheap but then I wasn't expecting it to be. Tea, sandwiches and cake thoroughly recommended Thank you

Just had a wonderful overnight stay at the Lanesborough and it was wonderful. The style of the hotel was lovely, we think regency, and so peaceful. All the staff were attentive but not over the top.

This is a unique place. Staff will greet you in an old English pronunciation, or at least that's what I thought :) The suites are absolute pamper, you will be surrounded with wood and art. The breakfast is perfect.
