Located in the heart of St James, The Stafford Hotel offers seclusion and sanctuary in the heart of London. We have stayed here several times before and we love the feeling of exclusivity here. The hotel is calm, and checking in is a breeze. You can expect no shoulder rubbing with other guests, or unnecessary waiting around.

When we arrived, we were given a short, informative tour on the way to our suite, the Mews Master Suite - which is located across the hotel’s courtyard. The journey across the cobbled courtyard meant our room had a mews view, and the fact that you couldn't see the hotel’s entrance and lobby from the room’s view point added to the feeling of privacy.

The Mews Master Suite is spread across two rooms, the living room and the bedroom, both immaculately presented with a classic decor. We also had a large bathroom, with the most elegant brown and white marbling. A soak in the deep set bath with the room’s resident rubber duck is a must.

This is the kind of bathroom that allows you to truly unwind, so you must take advantage. There is, however, a separate shower for those who don't have the luxury of time.

“The bed is hard to leave and you could easily soak into the mattress and let the world float by.”

The feeling of total relaxation continues in the bedroom. The bed is hard to leave and you could easily soak into the mattress and let the world float by. In the living area of the suit there is a study area with a desk and small library, there is also a sofa placed perfectly in front of the plasma TV. A large table sits in front of the window, which is fantastic if you'd like to take breakfast in the room. The view from the table overlooks the courtyard.

This is a suite that you will want to show off, and a great feature of the Mews Master Suite is the separate toilet located in the lobby area of the suite, which means that if you’re looking to entertain guests during your stay, your en-suite can remain behind closed doors.

Although there are plenty of dining options in the local area, The Stafford Hotel is home to The American Bar and The Game Bird where the focus is on modern British comfort cooking executed with style and panache.

It’s also worth noting that guests staying in the Mews Master Suite for two nights or more will also be offered complimentary airport transfers, arranged by concierge, to London Heathrow on departure. This is the sort of service you can come to expect as standard from The Stafford Hotel.
