The Lanesborough takes top World Travel Awards title

The Lanesborough has taken the title of England’s Leading Luxury Hotel 2017 at the prestigious World Travel Awards.

The history property successfully defended the prize, having won it for the first-time last year.

With its enviable location at the heart of London, in prestigious Knightsbridge, and panoramic views of Hyde Park, The Lanesborough has long been considered one of the world’s most luxurious hotels.

The hotel’s legacy lies with it having been built on the former home of Viscount Lanesborough and remains one of London’s most revered Regency landmarks.

The elegant surroundings, exquisite cuisine, unsurpassed attention to detail and world-renowned service will be second to none.

The Lanesborough captures the sense of a grand residence and offers 93 guest rooms, including 43 suites, and a personal butler service for all guests.

Oetker Collection manages the hotel, bringing their expertise to the United Kingdom for the first time.

The Lanesborough earlier this year welcomed a new spa.
