Live locally and have been twice as really like the location. Unfortunately both experiences were poor. Forgot numerous items first time, had to ask repeatedly for same thing - friend’s coffee had still not arrived even after my own drink and subsequent food had arrived 25 minutes later. Tried once more on a very warm day. 3pm lunch sitting so place was pretty much empty. Were told very bluntly by a rude Italian waiter that we had one hour only and could only sit at this particular table as entire rest of the terrace is reserved for hotel guests, including every single table in the shade or with a parasol. The sun went in for a moment as we spoke and he said ‘it’s cloudy’. We asked again for some shade, he then essentially said this is the only table you’re getting take it or leave it. So we left. Very unwelcoming, not what you expect from a 5 star hotel in st James’. I hope the manager reads this and cares when regular money walks out the door as I’d very much like to go back were the service up to scratch. Ultimately went to a hotel down the road and had a much nicer experience.

Small rooms, good food and service, nice location near underground and shopping, park. Very comfortable bed. Nice toiletries, free bottled water, newspapers, coffee, and tea in the room. Good breakfast, afternoon tea, cocktails in bar, wine cellar. Small meeting rooms and elevator.
