Rocco Forte Brown's Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed a week here. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget and definitely my favourite London hotel experience by far. There is nothing quite like a boutique hotel, especially Brown's.

The positives: Lovely attentive staff, elegant traditional setting, live piano music and good selection of teas. The slightly negative as we did enjoy our tea for two: Over priced. £65 per head for a mainly vegetarian, gluten free ( except for a small salmon savoury) tea. This included a medium sized glass of Brut champagne (optional add on) All the savouries were tasty, the ‘sweets’ were mixed. A rather strange selection, with a couple of rather bland ones. We didn’t get two of each dessert either, although you could ask for more. Compared to the traditional tea, I felt this was less value for money, the portions seemed smaller too and you miss out on the scones with the tee tox. We did enjoy ourselves though and left feeling comfortable rather than full and guilt free!

we had an awesome lunch experience at Browns Hotel with a very professional stuff in a bohemian atmosphere. The starters were amazing, burrata with marinated courgette and dressed crab with grilled Roman lettuce. Since I'm an Italian pasta lover I ordered house- made Spaghetti al ''cacio e pepe'' with peccorino cheese on lime- marinated langouistines I felt like beeing in Rome, pasta sky on earth, very tasty- a must try! My friend has been very exited about the pea soup with fresh mint and quinoa, fantasticly bright, light with a great balance. As well the red mullet sandwich has been delicious. “Just a quick thank you for the hospitality and excellent food we had when we visited yesterday. We will certainly be returning in the near future.“

Popped in for casual lunch. Disappointed previously good service and great food. For example crab sandwiches on request. Took ages to receive the ordered drinks food was sent back for being undercooked and cold Staff were like headless chickens moving around the bar without any organisation. Very poor

The best that London has to offer! The location is excellent - near Bond Street, Piccadilly, the Royal Academy, and a walkable distance to the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery, the Mall, the Palace and Green Park

An exceptional hotel. Rooms and décor are immaculate as you would expect in a hotel of this quality. What really makes Brown's stand apart however is its staff. They are personal, helpful and caring. Its clear they take great pride in their job. The staff not only ask how your day was but remember your answers and take an interest when they see you again. Cookies with the children's names on supplied as a surprise after a busy day. A concierge that can organise almost anything. Its all in the detail and at Browns there's lots of detail. As an example my six you old son picked up a sickness bug whilst we were in London from the tube or another public place. On returning to Browns that evening with him in my arms we had everything we needed within 2 mins of returning. Extra towels, bowls, water. Its service like this that sticks in the memory. An exceptional place to stay whilst visiting London.

Great location in the heart of Mayfair. Attention to detail, great staff and service. A lovely room with a view. We felt pampered our entire stay. Concierge made every reservation we requested. Afternoon tea is a must. Highly recommend

A group of 4 of us stopped in for an end of the night drink after supper at Cecconis. Yes the drinks were very nice, and the bar area is perfectly comfortable. However the service was perfunctory at best and the prices were on a par with Claridges and the Rivoli Bar at the Ritz if not slightly more expensive. Both those places though have a special vibe created both by the decor and the staff which just about supports the pricing, whereas this in terms of atmosphere could have been any provincial conference hotel lounge. Very underwhelming.

Not one thing to fault. True perfection. We spent 3 nights with two children in two interconnecting rooms. The rooms were stylish, welcoming, impeccably cleaned with fantastic walk-in wardrobes and modern bathrooms. Service was always truly professional and totally genuine. We were made to feel at home and we relaxed straight away. A perfect 5 star hotel that welcomes families and indeed caters for them with such wonderful touches, children themed bedding with a teddy bear for each child, children toiletries in the bathroom, small slippers and dressing gowns, children’s magazines and even welcome cookies in the room with their names iced upon. The children’s private tour of London was not to be missed and something they shall remember forever. The hotel restaurant was exceptional- a true Michelin delight even with our children. Dinner simply blew us away. Browns hotel met all our expectations and went beyond all other 5 star hotels to date. Proud to have stayed with you. Thank you for the experience. We can never stay anywhere else.

This was the second time that we have been fortunate to stay at Brown’s, an iconic hotel and a superb experience. All of the hotel staff were extremely professional and friendly and our suite was simply divine. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone and it could only be described as perfect.
