Historical Traveller Reviews of The Dorset Square Hotel

Great but Pricey

from djfake
I've been staying at the Dorset Square for over a decade now, this however my first stay in the past five years. The hotel is quintessentially British; don't expect huge rooms or a great bargain, but you'll be charmed with exceptional hospitality, lovely details and a great location - just steps from either Marylebone train station or Baker St tube.
One grip though was the price for continental breakfast. Absolutely nothing exceptional and completely average, it cost my wife and I over US$60 since everything else nearby was closed that Sunday.
So definitely avoid their Potting Shed restaurant.

Fabulous Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Dorset Nov. 19, 2004 - Nov. 25, 2004. It is a great Botique style hotel. It overlooks a park in a quiet section in Marylebone.
It is just a short walk to Baker St. and shopping on Oxford St.
The room was decorated in all red and was a welcome place to call home.
Plasma tv, shortwave radio, marble bath, thick towels. Two large confortable chairs to relax in. Superb room.
The staff is very professional. Wayne Davis the GM is approachable and asked about our stay. Diane who runs the Pottiing Shed restaurant was a superb host to us, and the live jazz music on Friday night was great.
Nice sitting room with a firepalce in the lobby to relax.
Housekeeping was great the room was immaculate.

Lovely hotel in a quiet spot

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here at the end of Oct 04 with my two children ages 8 and 11. The hotel is beautifully decorated and just a short walk from Baker Street Station on a quiet square. The staff were friendly. My only complaint was the price of the breakfast, which was, like all other London Hotels, very expensive. You can get all-day breakfasts from cafes on Marylebone on the way to the tube station for about £4, so save yourselve £8 and do that.

I love this hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed in this hotel 3 times in 3 years, and highly recommend it to anyone sick of "cookie cutter" hotel chains. Each room, though small by American standards, is decorated uniquely in English country style.
The staff is always kind and accommodating. The location is perfect. I can't wait to go back!

Not a great stay.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Not a great experience. For $365 a night I would have expected something better. Tiny, hot rooms, erratic and sometimes surly service, and not a perfect location. I don't know that I'd suggest if you have this kind of money that you should spend it here - either stay at someplace cheap (where you expect lousy service and mediocre rooms) and spend your money elsewhere, or spend a little more and go for something that has to be better.

Overpriced and Overrated

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed here during the spring of 1998 (so in all fairness it has been a while). We had stayed in 4 different places throughout GB on our 2 week trip and this was our least favorite. It was pretty well located in London, However it was the literally the smallest room for the highest price I've ever paid. The elevator was so slow that we finally just would take the stairs up to our 4TH FLOOR ROOM. All in all, the room was clean and not a terrible place, but I wouldn't stay there again.

High Marks for the Dorset Square

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed at the Dorset Square while honeymooning in London in August 1998 after reading a recommendation in Fodor's. We enjoyed our visit so much that we returned in April 2000. The Dorset Square is a lovely small hotel with a staff of friendly, efficient concierges, all of whom consistently went out of their way to make our visits to London enjoyable. The charming decor is reminiscent of a well-appointed country house, and style exudes throughout. The hotel's restaurant, The Potting Shed, serves a delicious full English breakfast which should not be missed before heading out for a day of meetings or sight-seeing. Conveniently located near the Baker Street tube stop and the beautiful Regent's Park, the Dorset Square Hotel is ideal for anyone looking for an affordable luxury hotel.

Great place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have not been to the Dorset Square in a few years but used to stay there all of the time when I went to London on business trips in the early to late 1990's. It is a wonderful little place. The least expensive rooms are *very* small but the medium priced rooms are fine and the higher priced rooms are absolutely wonderful. Lots of antiques, beautiful fabrics, marble bathrooms, etc. The staff is lovely - they always remembered my name and, because I was a repeat customer, always left a nice box of "welcome back" chocolates in my room upon my arrival. It never felt like a hotel to me but more like a beautiful home where the staff consisted of my eccentric aunts, uncles, and cousins. When I travel, I usually like to find small, elegant hotels in the suburbs right outside the city. This definitely fit the bill: it is not quite in the burbs but it the northern end, right on the border of Regents Park. Very leafy and residential but only a very short tube ride to downtown. Right near the Baker Street tube entrance. I also enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and room service.

Dorset Square--I recommend it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I spent 6 nights here in June 2000. We had a lovely, spacious room with a view of the square from which the hotel derives its name. The service was first rate. The staff was very attentive and accommodated all our requests. We thought the location was very convenient: it is about a block away from an Underground station, and just a couple of blocks from Regents Park, which is a great place for leisurely strolls and people watching. I highly recommend it and we will stay there again the next time we are in London.

An opinion about Dorset Square Hotel, London

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Dorset Square Hotel is a conveniently located, moderately priced luxury hotel. It is less than three blocks from the Wax museum in London. Across the street is a pleasant, peaceful park named (what else) Dorset Square, which adds to the quiet ambiance. This is despite the proximity of busy streets and tourist attractions.

We were there for three nights in April, 2000 and really enjoyed our stay. Their restaurant served an excellent breakfast, and offered both English and European fare. Buses and taxi's were easy to catch, and some great night spots were a short distance away.

This hotel has my recommendation.

Top Local Tips for London

London tip Hiring a car for travel to and from the theater district and dinner is truly worth it!

Walk! Take the time to walk up to Regents Park and explore the historic gardens. Vist the Marylebone High Street Cafes and Shops where few tourists can be found.
