    Vintage London experience”

    The stay at the Draycott Hotel fully added to our enjoyable stay in London in a major way. I've been to hundreds of hotels in all scales and the uniqueness of this one is that it was like having a furnished flat with amenities and amazing Victorian décor. Visit to uncharge or recharge, not to be in a high action hotel (yet the wireless was quite good).

    Honeymoon Stay ”

    My wife and I were at the Draycott for nine days, and it was a delight. The bed was great, the rooms are kept pristinely clean, and the charm of the place is just wonderful. We highly recommend their dining room for breakfast, it is small and quiet and the food is pleasant. Free champagne every evening is certainly a nice touch, too. The thoughtfulness of having a universal plug powerstrip on the desk was excellent too, that really helped save me a headache. All of that said, travellers should be aware of a few things. The closest grocery or convenience store is a little way off. Not a terrible trek, but certainly not just around the corner. Be prepared for that. The building is old, that is part of its charm, if you are looking for a modern environment, this is not the hotel for you. This place is old world class, which is fantastic, but not everyone's cup of tea. Their bathtubs are no joke. They're big, they're deep, and if you are short like I am you may have to climb carefully.

    Lovely hotel, with the very best staff. They think of everything, give u umbrellas on rainy days; have hot tea, champagne, and snacks. Great recommendations for restaurants & getting around London. No request is too much. They found out it was our anniversary & when we came back there was a lovely bottle of champagne & sweet note in our room. Top drawer service & posh Chelsea location.

    Peaceful Chelsea hotel ”

    The Draycott is a lovely boutique hotel. rooms are traditionally furnished often with antiques and unique paintings and objects d'art. The staff are great, although perhaps under staffed in the breakfast room. The only down side is some room features are looking worn. To some this may add to the over-all charm.

    Excelent hotel but our room needed a refurb”

    Location, friendliness of staff, comfortable bed

    Our stay was excellent but our room, the Laughton, was in need of a refurb as the furnishings are very tired and faded and the bathroom is very small. We have stayed there before in a much nicer room.
