Something of an institution, the Lanesborough hotel is perfectly positioned in prestigious Knightsbridge adjacent to Hyde Park.

Within its 95 guest rooms and suites are the most up-to-date imaginable ,yet the technology is always unobtrusive, concealed as it is within classic 1820's furnishings to create a subtle yet luxurious mix of old and new. The Lanesborough Deluxe and Executive rooms offer king or queen sized beds with exquisite Regency period pieces and 19th century artwork and views over Hyde Park.

The Hotel's luxuriously-sized Buckingham Suites includes a sumptuos king size bed and private living and dining salon that can accommodate sit to eight for dinner or cocktails. The suite's impeccable Regency details once again disguise cutting-edge technology within. The bathrooms are equally impressive, with sumptuous Carrera marble, double vanities, rejuvenating spa baths and private shower stalls.

Under internationally renowned chef, Heinz Beck - holder of 3 Michelin stars at La Pergola in Rome - The Lanesborough has gained a reputation for innovative international cuisine. Beck describes his cooking as 'light cuisine of Mediterranean flavours' and the man responsible for ensuring the quality and consistency of Beck's menu is Massimiliano Blasone, who until recently was the executive chef at Castello Banfi, the Tuscan estate producing Brunello di Montalcino wine.

Perhaps equally famous is Afternoon tea at the Lanesborough: served with all the beloved trimmings including freshly baked scones, thick clotted cream and home made fruit preserves, Karl Kessab, England's first tea sommelier, is delighted to guide guests with their personal tea selection and discuss varieties of tea that have been carefully selected and generally purchased at auction.

In all ways the Lanesborough is the essence of a great London hotel and its legion of loyal fans who regularly return bear witness to this.
