The Luxurious Stafford London Hotel
The Stafford London by Kempinski is in the heart of St James. It’s every hotel you’ve ever wanted with its classically beautiful English rooms to country charm cottage. From stylish mews living to a glorious American bar. From the rustic seasonal cuisine to al fresco dining.
You might expect the incomparable luxury of The Stafford, a bastion of Great British hospitality, but you will certainly delight in its eccentricities. Three-hundred and eighty year old wine cellars, an 18th century stable courtyard, a bar festooned with historical memorabilia and imaginative British cuisine – unique experiences that stay with you long after leaving.
The luxury London hotel’s Main House has 67 individually appointed rooms. The rooms and suites of the Main House provide a homely, restful luxury. The décor, defined by striking fabrics and wallpapers, has an abundance of period furnishings and effortlessly retains its distinct Englishness.
The Carriage House, once stables to thoroughbreds, an antiquarian bookseller’s home and a fine-art framer’s workshop is today one of London’s most unique places to stay. Overlooking an 18th century stable courtyard, The Carriage House offers twelve beautifully restored rooms and suites, featuring original stable doors and timber beams thought to have been reclaimed from sailing ships of the 1750s. Named after famous horses and literary scholars, each room retains the flavour of a bygone era, reinvented in comfortable, contemporary, luxurious surroundings. For a more opulent elegance, the deluxe, two-storey Guv’nor’s Suite offers minstrel’s gallery, king-size bedroom and 22 foot high feature window.
The American Bar at the luxury London hotel is famous for its renowned American cocktails, and ever since the 1930s has remained the place in London to appreciate an expertly mixed Martini, Manhatten or Sidecar – perhaps offering an explanation for the bar’s unique décor.
