Good Hotel Guide Review

Look out for the Union flag, and the doorman in suit and hat: this ‘intimate luxury hotel’ is all about ‘old-fashioned London hospitality’ – and is well loved for it. After 46 years in the hands of founder David Levin, the hotel is still managed by the founding family despite new ownership. Kate Levin, who worked alongside her father for many years, continues as manager; new head chef Andrew Sawyer, under the guidance of Nathan Outlaw, turns out ‘exceptional cuisine’ at the Michelin-starred, sustainable seafood-focused restaurant. Bedrooms of varying sizes have a touch of the English, with antique furniture and pretty floral prints. (Young guests will find bathrobes and slippers in their size, along with a small gift.) While the hotel is ‘ideally located’ for the neighbourhood’s chic shops and museums, guests staying in are rewarded with freshly baked scones with home-made jam at afternoon tea, or a whisky-and-cheese-pairing session in the bar. And if the modern cooking in the restaurant doesn’t appeal, consider an informal meal at sister hotel The Levin, next door (see entry). (NK). The Capital is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'Two splendid days. Staff were professional yet unstuffy. Tea for two, included in our package, was delicious, At dinner was could appreciate why the restaurant has a Michelin star. A breakfast the eggs Benedict were wonderful. ' - Jill & Mike Bennett - September, 2016
'Capital offers old fashioned London hospitality with exceptional cuisine. This is an intimate luxury hotel where the team cultivates a strong relationship with each and every guest. Its restaurant is run by one of the most talented chefs in the country in Nathan Outlaw whose 2 star restaurant in Cornwall is famed for his exceptional seafood. The hotel is also ideally located to enjoy the shopping in Knightsbridge and easy to access without enduring too much west end traffic.’ ' - Neil Kedward - October, 2015
