Perched on Hyde Park corner, The Lanesborough is an iconic stay at the heart of royal London overlooking the gardens of Buckingham Palace, between Mayfair, Belgravia and Kensington.
It underwent a huge renovation two years ago which restored the five star hotel to a seriously stylish level that’s seen it become a favourite for businessmen and billionaires.
Once inside The Lanesborough you’re transported back to a more elegant time, the rooms weave together Regency style decor with the most modern technology. There are tablets in every room but personal service is part of the DNA here and there’s 24 hour butler service for every room and suite. The hotel’s spa offers personal training sessions and holistic wellbeing alongside an extensive spa menu.
The Lanesborough’s corner Library Bar is a famous spot in London. It’s the perfect place to while a few hours with award winning cocktails, Cognacs dating back to the 18th century or try one of the most extensive cigar collections in London in one of Knightsbridge’s most luxurious cigar lounges, the Garden Room.
The Lanesborough also has an ongoing partnership with Debretts, the absolute experts in British manners. It runs monthly workshops and courses on etiquette and can guide guests on how to navigate all of the London season’s social occasions.
But The Lanesborough can also play host to your own events or a wedding. Its ornate Regency ballrooms with their delicate colour schemes are a Disney fairytale come true. The Belgravia Ballroom overlooks Hyde Park and there are several private dining rooms for family meals, including a wine cellar and the Westminster which has a glorious glass roof.
Complex floral displays, beautifully set tables and a grand sense of occasion come as standard here plus there’s a Michelin starred team in the kitchen, pastry chefs to design a wedding cake to wow and spa packages can be added on so you can just relax and focus on enjoying your big day.
The Lanesborough is home to the Michelin-starred Céleste restaurant, an award-winning afternoon tea service, a seriously seductive Library Bar and one of London’s best cigar and cognac lounges in the city
