The Guardsman on London's Vandon Street was awarded in the Best Afternoon Tea category with Condé Nast Johansens praising the "special treatment" shown to guests.

They wrote: "The Guardsman was made for discerning travellers looking for polished luxury, a suave British vibe and superb setting.

"It feels very exclusive here; more like a members club than a hotel. You’re certainly given special treatment during your stay thanks to the exceptional service, which is extremely intuitive with the aim to provide each and every guest with a memorable, personalised experience in the capital."

Reviewers on Tripadvisor were similarly positive with the hotel receiving a 5/5 rating from 205 reviews.

One visitor said: "Excellent property with well-appointed rooms and helpful staff. Very clean. Excellent location.

"A boutique hotel that provides a high level of service through well-trained staff."

Kimpton Fitzroy London was named winner in the Best Urban Hotel category and was praised for its "contemporary finesse".

The site said: "Inside, a modern finish has updated and upgraded each room whilst highlighting all the wonderful design quirks of this charming grande dame.

From the striking marble lobby with zodiac-themed mosaic floor to the fun 1920s flair, playful artwork and bold colour choices, there are surprises around every corner."

One visitor said on Tripadvisor: "From the moment we arrived everything was perfect- the best bedding - fluffiest pillows- great breakfast with wonderful service."

Just outside London, The Grove in Watford was announced as the winner in the Best Immersive Experience category.

Voting for the Condé Nast 2024 shortlisted properties in London is open until Monday, October 23, 2023.
