English heritage and boutique luxury in swanky Mayfair, with complimentary daily breakfast included

A hidden gem in a leafy Mayfair courtyard, DUKES London offers immaculate, five-star luxury. Eccentric English heritage meets boutique loveliness at this long-established residence, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner and World’s Leading Classic Hotel at the World Travel Awards. It's not just about beautiful style either; with a 24-hour gym, Italian-marble steam room and the Cognac and Cigar Garden, this gem places a clear emphasis on seriously decadent living.

According to The New York Times, DUKES bar is the "hotel bar which some say concocts one of the world's best Martinis." One would hope so; Ian Fleming was a regular, and the line "shaken, not stirred" was first used here. Unfold a newspaper and spend a luxuriant afternoon in the aristocratic Drawing Room or elegant Pierre-Jouët Lounge, with its ladylike spring hues and neat roses, and imagine you're a bona fide Bond character yourself.

Excellent for
City Sightseeing UK and Ireland Shopping Boutique Summer
