Being between Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge district, is erected a monument to the British hotel industry: The Lanesborough *****.
This establishment, which has been erected since 1719, and which was renovated in 1825 by William Wilkins – famous for having designed the National Gallery – had remained a luxury private residence until the 1980s, at a time when the whole area became the most exclusive residential and commercial district in the British capital.
To embellish this exceptional location, while respecting the original classic proportions, world-class architects and artisans, in partnership with the best historic preservation organisations, embarked on a three-year restoration and redevelopment project according to the most sophisticated and authentic lines that exist.
The result? One of the most beautiful palaces in the world, and the very best in terms of British-style comfort and hospitality.
One of the most comfortable ways to get to this extraordinary place is certainly by benefiting from a private limousine transfer from the Heathrow Airport, about 20 kilometres away, or from London Victoria Station, which is less than a kilometre away.
Pour rejoindre ce lieu extraordinaire, le plus confortable est certainement de profiter d’un transfert en limousine privée depuis l’aéroport d’Heathrow, distant d’une petite vingtaine de kilomètres, ou depuis la Gare de Londres-Victoria, qui se situe à moins d’un kilomètre.
Entering the Lanesborough is experiencing a moment of marvelling that will certainly remain engraved in your memory as a traveller. Monumental lobby, rosettes, shimmering frescoes, works of art, period furniture, common areas and rooms covered with 23 ¼ carat gold leaf, the attention to detail and the luxury of the locale are astounding.
For example, this hotel is the sole hotel in London to offer a 24-hour butler service for all room categories. Its Michelin-starred Celeste restaurant is particularly popular and has a delicious Library Bar and one of London’s best cigar and cognac lounges. As an icing on the cake, its Spa – which won Lanesborough the title of “Best Hotel Spa 2019” at the World Spa Awards – is without doubt one of the finest in the country.
The hotel makes available for you:
- 93 rooms and suites
- 2 restaurants
- 2 bars
- 1 exceptional Spa
- 1 indoor swimming pool
- 1 fitness room
- 1 world class babysitting service
If you are seeking after sensational comfort and décors of aristocratic sophistication, then Lanesborough is the hotel for you. The rooms and suites of this establishment perfectly and magically blend the charms of tradition and the advantages of modernity. Hand-painted trompe l’oeil, warm materials, delicate furniture, as well as the latest home and digital technologies will make your stay a very delightful one.
Being richly furnished with a sofa and an armchair, the Junior Suite (45 sqm) has a seating area, a large bathroom with an Italian shower and a separate bathtub, as well as large windows that flood the room with natural light. Although this option is ideal for couples with a young child, connecting rooms are also available on request.
The Apsley Suites derive their name from the magnificent London residence of the first Duke of Wellington, which can be impressively viewed from the suites. Each suite has an area of up to 52sqm and has an entrance hall, a large bedroom and an elegant separate living area. Large families can also access a connecting room.
You have certainly had the opportunity to behold the sumptuous décor of the Royal Suite: it served as a backdrop for Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in the film “Eyes Wide Shut“, by Stanley Kubrick. This 450 sqm residence is worthy of a prince or a head of state: its seven bedrooms and bathrooms, its two living rooms, its dining room overlooking the gardens of Buckingham Palace, its private kitchen, as well as a permanent butler service makes it a timeless place. For large families and groups up to 18 persons!
The Lanesborough invites you to rare moments of delight in its main restaurant: Céleste, with one Michelin star. In its incredible dining room, under the domed glass roof, the Portuguese chef, Darcio Henriques will concoct dishes highlighting the creativity of contemporary European cuisine, while respecting the codes of British tradition.
These are specially highlighted in this majestic setting during the inevitable “Afternoon Tea“, prepared with delicacy and offered daily by the house’s pastry chefs.
True to its high standards and its exceptional service, the hotel offers its privileged guests the opportunity of being served in their rooms, 24 hours a day, by a butler that is very attentive to their every need.
The Library Bar is one of London’s most famous cocktail bars, with a breath-taking collection of liquors – including 18th century cognacs – and world-class mixologists, who will entreat you with their spectacular blends. To highlight these great bottles in the most beautiful way possible, cigar lovers are invited to sit comfortably on the heated outdoor terrace, holding a freshly selected Havana Cigar, in the cellar of the Garden Room.
The Lanesborough Club & Spa has its own restaurant, which offers snacks, protein-rich smoothies and juices, all day long. Groups of 8 to 10 people have a semi-private dining room, where they can enjoy their healthy little dishes after workouts.
