Take an exclusive peek inside a new luxury London hotel
After months looking at the same four walls, most of us are itching for a change of scene, and what better place to escape to than a new 5-star hotel in the heart of the capital? After an extensive refurbishment, The Dilly is the hottest and hippest new property on the London scene, and we've been treated to an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes. Get inspired with the guided tour, then scroll down to enter our exclusive competition to win a 2-night stay...
Location, location, location
The Dilly is right on Piccadilly, with the nightlife, boutiques, theatres, galleries, and Royal Parks of London all on the doorstep. Stroll across Green Park to Buckingham Palace, give your credit card a workout on nearby Regent Street, or snap a selfie at Leicester or Trafalgar Squares — all are around five minutes' walk from the hotel.
If walls could talk...
Dating back to Edwardian times, the hotel opened in 1908 at one of London's most prestigious addresses, attracting some of the finest clientele in town, and eventually enjoying the royal patronage of King George V. The hotel has retained all its historic character, now blended with contemporary comforts and stylish, modern Insta-worthy interiors.
Luxe bedrooms make for a splendid home away from home. Choose from Dilly Classic rooms with super-comfy beds, luxury toiletries, and the option of London city views; Dilly Splendid Rooms to stretch your legs a little more; or a large Dilly Family Room that can sleep two adults and two children. Snug slippers, cosy dressing gowns, high-speed WiFi, tea and coffee facilities for a cuppa in bed, and 24-hour room service come as standard.
Steam, swim, or sweat
After a busy day exploring the sights, unwind in the hotel's steam room or take a relaxing swim in one of the largest indoor pools in central London. If you're looking to work off an indulgent breakfast, there's a spacious state-of-the-art gym and two squash courts available for hire at the Health Club at The Dilly.
Drinking and dining
You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to rumbling tums. For lunch or dinner under elegant arches, try the light-filled Terrace at The Dilly restaurant, which serves great British classics made using seasonal local produce. Alternatively, feast in the opulent Grade II-listed Oak Room, where Madhu's restaurant offers Indian fine dining.
If you fancy a spot of afternoon tea, a delightful array of tasty themed treats are on offer — be sure to sample the official Peter Rabbit Afternoon Tea if you're staying with children (or even if you're not!). Once wine o'clock rolls around, kick back with a cocktail in a prime people-watching spot on the terrace overlooking Piccadilly.
