The Haymarket Hotel in London is part of the Firmdale collection of hotels, which also includes a number of other venues in and around London.

The building is located in Suffolk Place in Haymarket, making it ideal for exploring Mayfair or Soho and the rest of the West End. It’s a town-house hotel, in a grand building with a very tidy façade.

The shiny black ironmongery surrounding the hotel gave a hint at the quality that waited within. The Union Jack hanging proudly above the door and the neatly trimmed bushes showed real pride and the spotless uniform of the doorman reflected that.

Inside the building didn’t disappoint. This is a classic hotel with real character. The interior decoration is elegant and traditional and finished to a very high standard. It also has a subtle modern twist with the choice of colours and patterns. It seemed the ideal middle ground between the two periods.

The concierge opened the door for us and ushered us to the reception. We were greeted with a smile and quickly sent up to our Junior Suite. The public areas of the Haymarket Hotel were of a high standard. The lobby was large, airy and had a huge mural on the wall, seating and artwork placed on pedestals.

“The Haymarket Hotel in London is a classic hotel with real class.”

The suite was very spacious, well decorated and had a nice calm atmosphere, making us feel instantly at ease. The décor echoed the classic character of the rest of the hotel with that nice modern twist.

There was a seating area with a sofa and chairs and a small coffee table, there were large windows giving us plenty of light and a large bed. There was also plenty of space to move around in, everything seemed well thought-out and considered and really worked as a place to stay.

That bed was probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in, which is saying a lot considering how often we stay in hotels. It was that perfect balance between supportive and soft. The pillows were plump, the covers crisp, clean and warm and the entire sleep experience was top notch.

However, the highlight of the room just had to be the private terrace that comes with it. Unfortunately, it was raining when we stayed, but in the sun it would be a delightful place to enjoy a morning coffee, or escape the city for a while. It’s a nice touch and a welcome feature of the suite.

The bathroom was also of a good size, with separate bath and shower, twin sinks, anti-steam mirrors and a TV over the bath. There was plenty of good quality light, thanks to the large window at one end.

The rest of the hotel echoed the high quality and standards of our suite. The conservatory was a wooden floored place to relax, with armchairs, sofas tables where guests were enjoying afternoon tea. The hotel also has a library, which is a light, bright place to relax and enjoy a hot drink or snack.

The hotel also has a gym and spa, called Soholistic. A neat play on words that seemed to be quite popular with the guests. There is also a decent sized swimming pool with a poolside bar and terrace. It’s underground and the vaulted ceiling and clever lighting adds a lot of character to it.

The staff at the Haymarket Hotel were impeccably dressed, polite, efficient and seemed genuinely eager to please. The entire venue is of a very high quality and a great place to stay. If you like being in the centre of things, this is definitely somewhere to consider. We would definitely stay here again.
