Business hotel close to Oxford Street

For a hotel costing over £200 a night it was bad that you could not open the shower gel or shampoo in the shower!

Elegant and polite

A well trained, professional staff provides comfort for the traveller. This hotel is beautiful in its common areas (although seating around the grand fire place in the lobby would be more travel friendly) and it provides restaurants/eating options for the traveller who would prefer not to go too far travel wise. The accommodation is comfortable, some is luxurious and other needs a little updating but overall a very good experience for all travellers. Well done!

Great location

The Hotel is next to the Lancaster gate Underground station, so it's perfect to get around London. Service was very good, in fact just about everything was great during our 3 day stay. The only thing letting it down is the is atrociously slow. We needed to do some business online during our trip and it was almost impossible. I never understand why hotel's can't improve their internet access.

Birthday & early Christmas gift

We had never stayed at the Lancaster before but hoped that it would live up to the website. We don't go to London often & as I had booked tickets to the Albert Hall for a birthday gift I wanted a lovely place to stay. As we entered the building I was impressed by the foyer & reception area. We were greeted by lovely staff & booked in straight away as our room was ready ,despite us arriving well before lunch. I told the lovely lady on reception that it was a birthday treat & she upgraded us to a suite! That was a real surprise & unexpected. The suite was near the top floor with a great view of the city. The room was spotlessly clean with pristine white bed linen & towels & a really good size bed. Plenty of space & a bath & shower with good quality toiletries & loads of very hot water. The bed was really comfortable, I struggle to sleep well away from home but I actually slept like a log! Breakfast was excellent too. We will definitely return next year. All the staff went out of their way to look after us & make us feel special, thank you. The only negative point was the carpet in our room had spill stains in places but as we had been upgraded who are we to grumble as we had a lovely stay.

Excellent Hotel and Great Location

Booked the hotel for a night away and thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely return. The hotel was fantastic and right next to Hyde Park. The staff were extremely helpful from start to finish. We were greeted straightaway and were asked if we wanted help with our bags. The reception area was very luxurious. Our room was lovely and had great views of London. The views at night were wonderful. Hotel a couple of minutes walk to the nearest tube station, with easy access to Londons top sights. Would definitely recommend this hotel and can't wait to return.
