stay The perfect balance of luxury, privacy and location, poised between London's fashionable Chelsea and Knightsbridge, presented and staffed as a grand Edwardian residence, The Draycott Hotel is not a hotel, it is a home.
For those who have yet to stay at The Draycott Hotel, it should come as a very pleasant surprise. Perhaps even as a breath of fresh air. To quote one of their guests, "most hotels only give you a sense that you're comfortable while on your way somewhere else. This one gives you the impression not that you're just passing through - but that this is where you're meant to be".
relax Steeped in Edwardian splendour; with high ceilings and fireplaces; each room is theatrically themed and adorned with Victorian antiques. Each room contains something of its theatrical namesake - be it Sheridan, Coward, Grenfell, or Ashcroft - such as prints, posters, photographs and a miniature biography of the impressario in question. And each room comes with ensuite bathroom containing a well-proportioned bath and a power shower.
Rooms and suites at the back of the property benefit from glorious views over the private garden square below - particularly beautiful when the cherry trees are in blossom. And, at the end of the day there is the indulgence of sleeping between finest Sea Island cotton in a luxuriously large bed, especially made to Draycott Hotel's own specification and designed for perfect rest.
Civilities extended to guests include complimentary afternoon tea served in the Drawing room at 4pm followed by champagne at 6pm. And before retiring for the evening, complimentary hot chocolate is served from 9.30pm.
Whether you are staying in a single room or a deluxe suite, all rooms feature the modern amenities you'd expect, such as air conditioning, complimentary wi-fi, satellite television and a CD music system.
