Dukes Hotel in London, England

Tucked into a tiny alleyway off St. James' Place, Dukes Hotel is quintessential Britain – it dates from 1908, but the interior is modern and the atmosphere is convivial. Impressive oil paintings and dark antique furniture preside alongside brightly upholstered settees, and beds are renowned for being incredibly comfortable. You’ll want to down one of the martinis at Dukes Bar, said to be the inspiration behind James Bond's request for "shaken, not stirred."

Ask the doorman to direct you to the secret entrance of Green Park. Wander amid magical greenery and unpack a picnic basket of quiche and summery greens. Return for Gin and Tonic Afternoon Tea in the parlour, an affair that deliciously fuses two British traditions. Top off the evening meal with a Cuban cigar and glass of cognac in the secluded garden lounge.

I had the pleasure of staying at Dukes for 9 days and enjoyed every minute it. Besides its ideal central location and old world charm, it was the helpful, friendly hotel staff that really made Dukes a home away from home. Thank you so much, Michael, Natalia, Cyrill, the porter who brought me brownies and ice cream at 2:20am, the doorman who recently had eye surgery yet showed his concern for me to stay dry in the rain, and the delightful manager who always made sure I had everything I needed morning and night. Thank you for making my stay in London the absolute best! —Warmest regards, David

Set in a private courtyard next to Green Park and Buckingham palace off St James Street. Convenient for all shopping, theatre, sightseeing and great restaurant/cafe choices. Our room was adequate, but in need of modernization. The a/c didn’t work so we were provided with a very noisy portable unit. The bath facilities were outdated and in poor order. The staff were very friendly. helpful and the service was good. The restaurant and cocktail bar were intimate, quiet and the food was nice. The overall rating would be higher if the facilities had been modernized in keeping with other local hotel options that also provided a better value for the price.

My 16 year old son and I stayed 7 nights at the Dukes hotel when visiting London recently. Our deal included breakfast. We were allocated a ‘quiet’ room on the first floor at the back of the hotel. It was dark and although it had a reasonable amount of space it wasn’t practical. The bathroom door didn’t close properly and had terrible lighting with no shaving/make up mirror. It was tiled in black and had no useful place to put toiletries except around the basin. We struggled to get a comfortable room temperature (it was far too hot for us) from the air conditioner and found there to be some noise in the pipes and also outside which may have been from the air con units. The next day we were upgraded to the 4th floor to a smaller but much nicer and brighter room. As we had been told that there was nothing wrong with the previous rooms air con and it was ‘user’ error, I got the maintenance man to come and set it for us at 18 degrees. He said he did this but when we returned to the room at the end of the day it was 23 again. It ended up being a frustration but we let it go. However the hot water temp in the shower was pathetic...luke warm, I got maintenance back again and he agreed that it wasn’t hot but the bath tap was and we couldn’t have both so we’d just have to have baths instead of showers... ahem...5 Star and can’t use the shower! There was also a lot of noise from the neighbouring rooms. We could hear everything! The best thing about this hotel were the breakfasts. They are simply the best we have ever had at any hotel. Huge variety of a la carte options. No buffet here. Service from the breakfast staff was exemplary especially Arthur( I think that is his name). We loved the waffles and the peanut butter and chia pudding. Location is also fantastic... minutes from Green Park tube station and walking distance to restaurants and tourist sights and theatres... everything we could want. We also received daily muffins and mandarins in the room and water which was greatly enjoyed. Service overall was a bit patchy... newspapers weren’t consistently delivered, ironing board delivered after several reminders and several hours but they were small things that didn’t hugely impact our stay. We did enjoy our time in London but we do think the Dukes Hotel is over selling itself. It may have been 5 Star 50 + years ago but it really needs a renovation and more modern amenities. This can be achieved whilst retaining its old world ‘charm’ but at the moment we didn’t feel it was value for money.

We booked for a traditional afternoon tea. The location is Classic and stylish and the staff is polite and make you feel comfortab le. The service is discrete so you can enjoy a quiet moment without anything's missing. The variety of tea is served with a selection of savory and sweet quality handmade tasting, very delightful and tasty. They also offered us a slice of their cake of the day. I warmly reccomend it.

This was our first trip to London in years so we packed a lot in , it was wonderful to come back in the evening to a glass of wine, comfortable room and bed . The staff were amazingly helpful as were room service and housekeeping. We stayed in this hotel 20 years ago and had such a great experience that we always planned to return, luckily we weren’t disappointed. We won’t leave it another 20 years before we’re back !
