      Beautifully decorated and very grand hotel in a great loacaton.

      Fire alarms went off twice in 13 hours. The first time, we were unable to use our executive passes in Soak and the second time was at 7.15am. Wasn’t sure if the second was real or a practice as it happened so soon after the last drill. The Waiting staff were all smoking when waiting around and no one was checking off who was out of their rooms. I feel training is needed.

      So close to Victoria Station. There is an entrance from the hotel! Many restaurants within walking distance. Their restaurant was great as well. I really want to take time to recognize Mercy for her warmth, friendliness, and thoughtfulness. She is a ray of sunshine and I know our family appreciates the way she always had ‘our’ table ready for us at breakfast. I miss her and the other great staff already! Thank you all.

      Took awhile to get someone to fix some light issues in our room. Otherwise service and rooms were great. Quite lovely.

      Excellent first impression, the executive room was beautiful, clean and large

      One of our rooms was not ready at 3pm, we had to wait nearly 1 hour until it was ready. The lady on reception was very nice but as a guest I do not want to know that the hotel is short staffed. This was a special occasion for us. Then when we got to our room they had only made it up for two people instead of three. Also we only had two of everything. Then a young gentleman came to make a third bed for us and we ended up moving the furniture for him. We were also handed a sheet of paper saying that we could get cocktails on the bar, only to find that it was closed. A very disappointing visit to this hotel and we had been looking forward to our visit since March.

      Good location near to Victoria station. Nice view from my bedroom. Comfortable bed. Friendly girls on reception.

      The room was very cramped for the price I paid. I had to get two lifts to get to my room. Long walk to the lifts. Expensive bar. Slow room service.

      It had a bed.

      I wish I could give this 0. I paid quite a lot of money for 2x rooms, room 315 was appalling. The television was broken. The air con was broken in the centre of a heatwave. The Coffee machine was broken so no hot drinks facilities. I spoke to reception who had no interest what so ever and shrugged it on with basically 'there's nothing we can do about that'. Sent an email in the second I arrived home (Monday) and haven't had a single response. I'd expect an apology at very least considering I paid full value for a 1/4 functioning room. Wouldn't stay here again for free.

    • 7.8
      Very good

      The location with direct access to Victoria station and Gatwick Express was extraordinary. Although restoration was ongoing we got the feeling of a genuin English firstclass hotel.

      Very expensive breakfast, and we did not give it a try. Lot of stairs and and only one lift.

      We stayed one night as a stopover for a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. Make sure you book a newly refurbished executive room. We had a Kingsize Executive which was large,well furnished, good bed,large bathroom and separate seating area and two flatscreen TVs. Quiet,comfortable, loads of wardrobe space and very up to date showers and other fittings. Could not fault the room at all. Very comfortable stay. We opted out of the hotel breakfast and turning left out of the entrance found Vafresca two minutes away, great little Italian cafe doing really good breakfast rolls with bacon etc and a good coffee for £3.95 each!

      It is being refurbished so some building works about but no noise or dust. Access to 7th floor rather complicated involving two lifts and a bit of a trek but builders told me a new bigger lift is being put in which should solve this. Make sure if you extend your room departure by an hour ( Cost £10) as we did that you get your key card re programmed or you wont get back in. The Grosvenor is not cheap but by London standards we felt it was good value, excellent room and we would use it again

      The staff was absolutely increditable. The concierge staff was more than accommodating. They helped us with the room, the electrical plug set up, confirming tour and flight, transport to the airport, and guidance around the city. We can't say enough nice things about the staff of this hotel.

      By us standards, the prices in London are high. For the sights we wanted to see, this hotel was a perfect location-Buckingham Palace, etc.
