An Elegant Five Star Hotel in London’s Mayfair, Perfect for Shopping.

The five star Beaumont Hotel is one of London’s classiest and refined hotel experiences, and located right in the heart of the shopping district.

Overall Rating: 9.5/10

This elegant five star hotel in Mayfair is more like an American style club than a hotel, and offers some of London’s friendliest and accommodating service and facilities at every level in a world-class location.

Rooms: 8.5/10

There are 73 elegantly decored rooms and suites at The Beaumont Hotel, and each has a neutral but elegant colour scheme of grey carpet, generous, plush beds, polished wood furniture, gold hues and room to settle right in with generous cupboard space.

The bathrooms are brilliantly lit and have generous mirrors and luxe body products made directly and exclusively for The Beaumont which are a highlight. The black and white mosaics on my bathroom floor were stunning.

The five star hotel rooms have plenty of mirrors which are both full length and top only making it quick and easy to get dressed and get downstairs to the bar or across the road to Selfridges.

Some suites at The Beaumont, Mayfair have exceptionally large balconies.

At night we were left with blocks of both milk and dark chocolate made exclusively for The Beaumont to enjoy with Beaumont labelled wrapping. What a way to make guests feel welcome and spoilt.

If you like to shop, you won’t find a better location than The Beaumont Hotel in London.

Located right in the heart of Mayfair, (and therefore London), the feel is a touch masculine, with an Art Deco style super swish bar as the bustling centrepiece of the hotel – and it is always busy. This is London after all.

The property’s history a few lifetimes ago was as a multi-level car park to Selfridges department store which is just metres away.

Dining: 9.5/10

The Hotel’s Restaurant, the 1920s style Colony Grill Room is where guests have breakfast, lunch and dinner, but is also a popular and trendy location for Mayfair’s well-heeled to dine and meet at all hours of the day. (Click here for my review).

The restaurant at The Beaumont has been written up multiple times by some of London’s strictest critics for having the best steaks in London.

One of the many highlights of dining at The Colony Grill Room is the diverse menu which accommodates the most indulgent diner as well as vegans, vegetarians, and meat lovers. 

At breakfast, the menu is diverse and includes freshly made ginger shots, pastries, porridge, famed eggs and full, traditional English breakfast.

The Bar at The Five Star Hotel Beaumont in London’s Mayfair is a gorgeous place for a pre-dinner drink.

The restaurant has been written up multiple times by some of London’s strictest critics for having the best steaks in London straight off the grill and whole Dover sole, making it the perfect venue for all palettes and preferences.

The wines by the glass are diverse and there are many choices with different price points.

The dessert menu is heavenly, and the ice cream notepad delivered with the dessert menu is a highlight, especially for children, as you fill out which flavours, toppings and so on you would like in a sundae.

Afternoons are another highlight in the bar at this indulgent five star London hotel.

Afternoons are another highlight in the bar at this indulgent five star London hotel, with a light afternoon tea trolley prepared daily with fresh cakes, chocolates and bites and a huge list of gourmet teas from Teapigs.

The staff are highly attentive and seem to love attending to guests and helping them with the largest and smallest details within the hotel. They greet hotel guests by name and feel like family within a short time. The hotel has a no-tip policy which is not common in London.

The concierge was particularly kind and helpful printing off restaurant recommendations for our next destination.

When we found a thermos of herbal tea by the bed upon arriving home after dinner, I wanted to stay forever.
