OVERVIEW

A five-star hotel which dates back to 1908 and offers a winning combination of the traditional and the contemporary. Its location at the top end of Piccadilly is a big plus too. The spa is enhanced by a large swimming pool, while the grand former banqueting rooms house Madhu's Indian restaurant.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

At the top end of Piccadilly, near the Circus, and with its access to Underground and bus links, it couldn't be better placed to explore the West End. The West End theatres - and cinemas - are a short stroll away as are the shops of Bond Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden together with the restaurants and bars of Soho. The wide expanse of Green Park is nearby; don't miss a visit to the Royal Academy and, for something more avant-garde, head to the Institute of Contemporary Arts on The Mall.

By car: the hotel is over 4 hours from Manchester and 2.5 hours from Bristol.

By train: Piccadilly Circus tube is 2 mins walk away. Victoria station is under 10 mins by taxi. Book trains to London.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

With its giant columns on the front and its Neo-Baroque meets 17th-century English Palladian style, the Dilly looks as though it means business from the off. The cool illuminated Dilly sign hanging from the ceiling in the lobby adds a dash of fun, while the plant-filled conservatory - used as a restaurant - adds another level of charm.

THE FACILITIES

Whether it's the guest services team (who can book local restaurants to theatre tickets), the general presentation or the facilities, The Dilly knows how to entertain. The hotel has some custom bikes too, which can be used for exploring the area or taking a picnic in the park.

BED AND BATH

The rooms and suites come in five categories and are, on the whole, quite traditional but we like the contrast between the dark blue walls and brightly coloured chairs. Bathrooms are decent - most have baths with handheld showers - and the Floris products are a classy touch.

Room types: Classic Room, Splendid Room, Family Room, Junior Suite, Executive Suite

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with toiletries, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

You are spoilt for choice at The Dilly, with options ranging from The Terrace where you can have the scrumptious Peter Rabbit Afternoon Tea, to breakfast on the balcony; the restaurant also serves classic dishes such as burgers together with a full à la carte menu. The Louis XIV-style Oak Room houses Madhu's and the Oak Lounge the inviting cocktail bar.
