The best hotels and resorts in the world have been named and two of them are in London.

The esteemed 'Gold List' was created by Conde Nast Traveller as editors decided where in the world was worthy to be named.

Created to help travellers try a slice of luxury across the world, the Gold List is created from endless hours of research, scoring and debate amongst the Conde Nast Traveller team.

Away from the best in Spain or America, two historic hotels in London were lucky enough to be named on the list.

You can see the full list now via the Conde Nast Traveller website here.

Two London hotels named Best in the World

Claridge's and The Dorchester were the only hotels in London to make the Gold List.

Claridge's was first opened in 1812 and was a fond favourite of Queen Victoria with its classic design and perfect service.

Conde Nast Traveller described that hotel's lobby as capturing: "the art deco glamour of the Jazz Age when flappers hobnobbed with royalty."

Claridge's suits is said to be an "impeccable meld of English heritage and subtle chinoiserie" adding that the hotel expansion allowed for suites to have "ingrained modernity through scalloped mohair furniture in coral and pastel-green palettes."

Away from suites, Claridge's also offers guests impressive spas with the likes of bamboo-stick massages and Cryo Oxygen Shot facials.

Plus, there is even a pool with a vaulted ceiling that is surrounded by "stone columns and cushy cabanas."

On Tripadvisor, Claridge's earns an impressive 4.5/5 rating and is the 11th best hotel in all of London.

One impressed reviewer shared: "Truly excellent hotel in every way. Luxurious decor and amenities. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. They cater to your every need. Claridge's is the best hotel I have stayed in."

The Dorchester was the second London hotel to be named on the Conde Nast Traveller Gold List.

The hotel has recently gone under a three-decade-long refurb seeing "public spaces supercharged, and two floors of new rooms and suites revealed."

For a spot to drink the Artists Bar has a mirrored ceiling with crystal pillars and a "Liberace’s mirror-ball-clad baby grand."

The Dorchester suites offer looks of an "English garden" with colours of leaf green, rose and heather.

On Tripadvisor, The Dorchester has a 4.5/5 rating with one regular visitor sharing: "In our opinion, The Dorchester is the jewel in the London Crown of hotels!

"We have been in all of them and stayed in most. Whilst they are all very beautiful and they all deliver excellent customer service (the Ritz was a little disappointing) the Dorchester apart from being a stunning hotel the staff are so warm and friendly and the attention to detail is outstanding!"
