Rocco Forte Brown's Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I should say we didn't stay in the hotel, but we were eating at the Ritz to celebrate our son being presented with the Duke of Edinburgh Gold award earlier on in the day. The Donovan bar in Browns proved to be the perfect location for a pre-dinner aperitif. A warm ambience greeted us as the doors were politely opened in front of us. I would have preferred my whisky served in a proper whisky glass rather than a tall cocktail glass, but that's my only slight criticism, apart from that a very pleasant visit.

Rarely do we find hotels of this caliber. Browns has managed to retain an old world charm that so many hotels lack these days. The staff remembered every guest giving a delightfully personal feel. Nothing is too much trouble, simply ask.

I mainly picked Brown's as it scored high for being child friendly because I was taking my goddaughter for a trip to London, but also because it is a hotel with a grand history and reputation for outstanding service. Not being used to travelling with children I was a little apprehensive how my goddaughter would react to a five star hotel. Fortunately, the staff were brilliant and gave us a lovely greeting on our arrival including the manager personally greeting us at reception. I had booked two connecting rooms, both of which were furnished with understated elegance. My goddaughter loved the "secret" connecting corridor between the two rooms that accommodated plenty of wardrobe space. My goddaughter's room had various gifts/toys/books which was a lovely surprise. The only slightly negative point (which I include because she mentioned it) was that some of the items were a bit young for her, including a colouring book. We had dinner in the Hix restaurant on the first night and breakfast on two days. I enjoyed my meal - caviar starter and grouse main course - although the children's menu is limited but still quite good. The staff were great...always greeting us by name as we left and arrived back at the hotel.

Classy old-style English Hotel in great location. Easy to walk to Piccadilly and other major areas. Staff is so professional and will drive you to Harrods and elsewhere. Great food and a fun bar right out of a James Bond Movie. I would recommend this hotel and it's worth the price!

Very attentive friendly staff top to bottom. Front desk and bellman amazing. Cocktails, especially Donavan martini in the Bar were outstanding. Close to everything. Enjoyed wonderful spa treatments, experienced therapists. Can rely on this spot.

My bags were sent straight to the room upon arrival, saving my time to explore the city! Maybe I was staying alone, the bed seemed larger lol. Encountered a lovley housekeeping lady, and the doorman was very helpful getting me a cab. Breakfast selection is simple.Still, it was a good stay.

Our second visit to Brown's was simply magical. The property is located in a great neighborhood in Mayfair. Walking distance to so many places. The staff welcome you like you're an old friend. The rooms are tastefully decorated and well appointed. The bedding is amazing. The bathrooms with separate shower and tub are lovely. Our breakfast was included. The hotel continental breakfast buffet features fresh fruit that alone is worth the visit. Fresh meats, cheeses, yogurts, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, breads and pastries and more. Lovely service in every part on the hotel. Great bar, check the bar menu for lighter eats. Spa, nice gym and hotel car when available. Great concierge team to assist whatever you might need. We took the hotel car service from the airport and found that perfect as well. Being greeted after a long flight is always a worthwhile Treat. We will be back at Brown's next time we travel to London.

If you want a home from home then book into to Browns. It has fabulous atmosphere and the service is second to none. No visit is complete without a cocktail from their excellent bar and it is fun to learn about the art of making them from a consumate professional.

My favourite Hotel in London! Very professional and attentive staff (especially : german lady and young man at front office). Upon your arrival you feel at home! Concierge service excellent. Delicious breakfast: enjoyed food selection and quality. HIX restaurant very good (loved salmon). You get a "dolce vita"-feeling, as some of the staff are italian (cf Rocco Forte). Massage very professional, even if tiny Spa. I will return in october to this faboulous hotel! Even if I travel without my husband they make me feel comfortable!

Brown's Hotel is an absolute treasure. The rooms are beautiful, the hotel is quaint with lots of history, the location is fabulous, and the service is second to none. We loved the restaurant and lounge, and the consierge were so engaging and helpful. We couldn't receommend this hotel any higher. It's a wonderful experience from start to finish!
