Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park
London

If you're looking for Hyde Park views, luxury shopping on your doorstep and haute cuisine then the Mandarin Oriental is the place for you from the minute you climb the staircase into the art-deco marble lobby the hustle and bustle of London simply fade away. Built at the turn of the 20th century to be used as gentleman's serviced apartments, the hotel's grand Victorian facade is ornately beautiful and rooms are a tasteful blend of Louis XVI-inspired British tradition and global contemporary luxe that you would expect from a mega brand like the Mandarin Oriental. One of the few grand London hotels that was purpose built for luxury accommodation, corridors are incredibly wide and spacious and lined with sumptuous sofas and armchairs. Each floor has its own decorative lobby meaning that simply walking from your room to breakfast makes you feel like royalty. Although lavish and ornate in style, service at the Mandarin matches up to its Asian counterparts staff are discreet and scrupulous and work hard to make your stay a truly memorable experience. Dining is where this hotel really comes into its own the Mandarin Bar is smart and sexy whereas next doors Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is an innovative gastronomic treat with expansive views of Hyde Park. A firm Ampersand favourite Bar Boulud is the perfect place for lunch after a hard day's shopping.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had.

An absolutely first-class service all round!

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
