Hotel Dukes in London

Dukes London Mayfair hotel has recently been undergone an extensive makeover, including
the now much enhanced GBR restaurant. This hotel dates from 1908 and it also remains a
traditional place to stay where (the Union Jack still flies above the hotel’s &
entrance of the courtyard), while the cocktail bar is as fine a venue as ever.

for Piccadilly (with the Royal Academy) and the West End. If you wish to ask the doorman he can
guide you to a hidden short cut to Green Park. And if you’re feeling flush/decadent head to the
Caviar House and Prunier on Piccadilly.

nudge the hotel into the present & modern era – GBR restaurant being a fine example. specially

wood panelled lift – one of the many original features.

efficiency and charm – ask for spare phone charger at 6am and one will be there in a flash.

facials from £35. Dukes bikes also available to hire and they will also prepare picnics to take

Twenties-like appeal, with distressed mirrors, black and white photos, and a ‘bar’ where everybody
can sit easily and eat too.
