The Dilly, Piccadilly, London
The Dilly is a five-star hotel that knows its business, from the stylish interiors and fine dining Indian restaurant to its super spa and sizeable (for a hotel) swimming pool. Rooms are traditional and comfortable, and a recent update has enhanced the hotel's historic touches while adding a contemporary vibe. An unbeatable location on Piccadilly makes this a great base for a city break, with Green Park, Bond Street, Soho and theatreland all within easy reach.
Rooms available from £188.10 per night
The West End theatres are a short stroll away as are the shops of Bond Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden. Green Park is nearby and for something more avant-garde, head to the Institute of Contemporary Arts on The Mall.
The hotel is at the top end of Piccadilly, and with its access to Underground and bus links, you're best-placed to explore the West End.
By car: over 4 hours from Manchester and 2 hours 30 minutes from Bristol. Paid parking available nearby.
By train: Piccadilly Circus tube is a 2-minute walk away. Victoria station is under 10 minutes by taxi. Book trains to London.
CHARACTER & STYLE
The Dilly has a Neo-Baroque meets 17th-century English Palladian style exterior and looks as though it means business from the off. The illuminated Dilly sign hanging from the ceiling in the lobby adds a dash of fun, while the plant-filled conservatory restaurant brings another level of charm.
Ask at reception to hire a custom bike - perfect for exploring the area or picnicing in the park. Whether it's the guest services team (who can book everything from local restaurants to theatre tickets), the general presentation or the facilities, The Dilly knows how to entertain.
