Simply perfection. ||I booked this hotel for my partners birthday. We were seeing a show in London and decided to stay overnight. From entering the hotel, the staff were welcoming and made us feel comfortable. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful! ||We stayed on the 8th floor in a beautiful double room. Guest relations went the extra mile to add special additions to the room including balloons, a personalised mirror message, rose petals and a bottle of Prosecco. We can’t thank you enough for this kind gesture!!! Not many hotels provide such service. ||The concierge service were excellent, taking in our luggage before check in and after we had checked out so that we could explore hands free.||Highly highly recommend this hotel and will most definitely be staying again

A very nice hotell with the best location ever. We stayed 6 nights, a family trip with three generations (ages 12-81). Rooms are outdated but a major renovation is planned for next year and after that this hotel will be at the very top of London hotels. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Anything you missed you could ask for and it would be brought to you. Breakfast was very nice and the food quality was excellent. The breakfast room is a bit noisy so go there earlier for a quieter experience. Staff was super friendly and very helpful. We asked for some room changes at the last minute and the reception managed to rearrange everything to suit us . A special thanks to Henry (the King) who really went out of his way to make sure we got the perfect rooms for our family. He even got us one room with two bathrooms and only a family with two teens understands the luxury of that. We loved our stay at The Dilly. We felt at home and appreciated as guests which is rare in larger hotels today. I can't wait to go back.
