The Resident Covent Garden

Renowned for its elegant central Piazza, charming independent market stalls, vibrant street performers, and for having some of the best luxury shopping and fine dining in the capital, not to mention being home to the world-famous Royal Opera House and West End theatres, Covent Garden is one of London's most enchanting and inspirational destinations. The Resident Covent Garden is just a 3-minute walk from the main central Piazza (and within a 5-minute walk from both Covent Garden and Charing Cross stations), providing an oasis of calm right in the heart of the action. It offers 57 stylish and thoughtfully designed contemporary bedrooms, each featuring bespoke furniture hand-made locally in West London, luxurious throws and cushions made from natural fibres woven on the Isle of Bute, Scotland, and special edition Paul Smith Anglepoise lamps, as part of the brand’s focus on quality British design and craftsmanship. They each also feature our signature in-room Mini Kitchen.

Great location, hotel was nice

Reviewed By gsgman777

I stayed with my wife and son (20) in a junior suite. I chose this hotel because of the location and we like the smaller boutique hotels. Location was great, perfect for walking to key sites as well as plenty of shopping and dining. The hotel was pretty clean, some of the staff were super nice and others were just okay. Beds were not the most comfortable and (as expected) there was some noise from the outside. We had a view of some city buildings and the London Eye was peaking over the top of them as well. Overall very happy with the stay and would definitely consider again if we make it back to London.

A landscaped public plaza seamlessly connects these two cultural hubs together, making it a 24-hour destination for meeting, living, working and discovering. As a pet loving-hotel, we welcome your 4-legged friends.

Unforgettable Stay

Reviewed By honeyfrauline

I had a great experience at Pan Pacific London. The room was huge and immaculately clean. The service and the facilities were all undeniably wonderful. The Kopi Tiam afternoon tea we enjoyed at the Orchid Lounge was just lovely. They, especially the Guest Relations Team, were so nice to have accomodated my requests since I wanted to make it special as I was celebrating my birthday. It was also good that they offered out of hours/overnight in room dining. The only issue I had was that the phone inside our room wasn't functional that I had to call the reception with my own phone. Overall, it was an unforgettable stay.

Modern and new

Reviewed By hussain a

Sooooo amaaaazing hotel. Very new where it was opened later 2021. The decor is modern and soooo beautiful. The breakfast is very nice and the atmosphere is so lovely. The staff is sooo welcoming and corporative with smile all of the time. The location is quite and not noisy. It is 2 minutes walking to the underground station and a bus stop just front of the hotel. The room is very nice with very comfortable bed with nice shower. Stayed there for 6 nights and would go again if I am back to London.

What can I can about this amazing B&B. I have been a travel agent for 15 years , and now I work in a 5star hotel and I must say this place is something special. I did my normal 4 hour search to find the perfect place for an overnight (50th)getaway and I found it. Jonathan and Karen are the perfect hosts, and check-in was a breeze, they made us feel very special . We stayed in the deluxe King with a balcony. Omg, what a room and the most amazing view. We sat on the balcony sipping bubbles looking at the water.... Bliss. This is a real little find, it's a must. Do yourself a favor and go, we will be going soon for sure. Thank-you for an amazing stay.

Luxurious yet friendly hotel. Really excellent food too!

Reviewed By davecW3474JD

We only stayed one night, and were sorry to leave! Really efficient and friendly welcome on arrival, a spacious, well-appointed room, a really comfortable bed and an excellent bathroom! What's not to like? Dinner was really top-notch. I'd go to the restaurant again in a heartbeat - food was really precisely made, using a lot of fresh local ingredients. The waiting staff were excellent, as was the pannacotta was excellent. Breakfast was fab too. All in all, a pretty flawless experience. Best hotel I can remember in this price range.

Adequate hotel in good location, but very overpriced

Reviewed By rsK2037MH

Adequate, but way overpriced (> £1000/night for an adequate, but tiny, room where the previous guest's hair still clung to the shower door - and breakfast wasn't even included !). Breakfast is very slow (10 minutes just to get your coffee and then the waitress gets your breakfast order wrong, so you have to wait some more). Unfortunately no buffet.

Never disappoints

Reviewed By colinmK6443KG

I wrote a review of this hotel a few years ago. We loved it then and have returned from time to time, the standard of welcome and service never slips. What spawned this new review, we were fortunate enough to be staying on Jubilee Saturday when the hotel offered a Jubilee afternoon tea. What a wonderful experience. Champagne, delicate sandwiches with thoughtful fillings, homemade scones and jam, Jubilee themed cocktail and all crowned with a selection of hand crafted cakes that would not been amiss in the Savoy. A warm ambience was supplied by a truly excellent baritone singer and pianist with nostalgic songs relevant to the occasion. Caroline, the general manager, and her team put on a thoughtful and memorable occasion with their usual high standards of service. All in all an excellent afternoon and stay.

Amazing staff .. second to none service … very dog friendly

Reviewed By suesK3009XC

11 out of 10 We had a few days staying here over the jubilee weekend and we were amazed. Friendly staff to us and our doggy. We have been to other places that state dog friendly .. what they mean is dog tolerant … BUT HERE at Forest park they treat your dogs as guests. From the bowls towels and bed in the rooms with biscuits to the Inn side of the restaurant. The waiters & waitresses all made a fuss and we didn’t feel uncomfortable and just wanting to eat as quickly as poss. The rooms are lovely and the food is brilliant!! The Inn is in the perfect place so you can walk straight out on to the moor land. There is a lovely garden and the service where ever you are is outstanding !! We will be back

Amazing stay - yet again

Reviewed By andy440090

This was our 4th visit to the Windermere boutique hotel and it didn't disappoint. We stayed in the Sweetheart Suite and it was amazing. Everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was really good and we didn't need any lunch. Staff were really friendly and helpful and are a credit to the hotel. (Richard should be so proud of them). It was just perfect, a lovely treat from my husband, we will definitely be going back, as there are 4 rooms left we've not stayed in. I would give it 10 stars or more if the option was available.
