The Stafford Hotel

16 - 18 St. James's Place, London SW1A 1NJ, England
6 reviews

The Stafford Hotel is one of our favorites as well as our correspondent's. With a charming courtyard lined with rooms in converted stables (two-part doors intact) and an old wine cellar filled with great vintages and some WW1 artifacts, and attentive, but not obsequious service, the Stafford is a hotel worth returning to again and again.

    As with all Apple stores, this is a busy place, with lots of customers and almost as many employees! This is a two level store in a great setting...a contemporary business in an attractive, older environment. While here, be sure to walk around and investigate the many stores and eateries at Covent Garden.

    A London institution since 1963, this private members' club in the heart of Mayfair is like a honey pot for the international jet set. A life membership here will set you back £25,000 - and that's assuming you get selected by the membership committee.

    It might sound totally outrageous but the toilets at Sketch are legendary and as soon as you ascend the white stone steps to lavatory heaven you will know why. My tip for Sketch is the afternoon tea. Watch Central London go by as you sit in the luxurious lounge and take your time with friends in this immaculately designed restaurant ...

    Saw the show in December 2010. The show was full of action contrived to happen around the words of Queen songs. Very entertaining - the performers were great - good singing. If you like Queen songs you will likely like this show. We were sitting just a couple of rows from stage which was a bit too close to see ...

    Gordon's claims to be the oldest wine bar in London. The place always seems to be packed and you are lucky if you can find somewhere to sit. Even in the rain, the places under the umbrellas were full. But the wine selection is good and the prices reasonable, so it is worthwhile to make the effort to squeeze in.
