The Grove, London's self-proclaimed country estate, has played host to everyone from Kylie Minogue to Johnny Depp and its 300 acre grounds and world-class golf course have even attracted Tiger Woods. I love this hotel; it is an unashamed playground for the rich and famous, offering everything from croquet gardens to a summertime beach volleyball court-and all under the watchful eye of the resident 20ft topiary giraffe. My last visit here was like a celebrity safari, half of Eastenders had seemingly jumped on a soap-star express train straight from Walford to Watford!
Located in the upmarket St James area of the capital, The Cavendish was famous in the sixties for its 24-hour restaurant which attracted megastars like The Rolling Stones. Today the building, which dates back to the 1800s, features 230 guestrooms, many of which lay claim to some of the best views in London. Despite no longer having the open all hour bar, they do still have 24 hour concierge and proudly offer some of the most attentive service in the capital.
Just a stone's throw from Downing Street this historic building, dating back to 1885, has been given a glam makeover by the Pisani family and now boasts the largest suite in London. A relative newcomer to London's luxe hotel scene has already seen the likes of Colin Firth, Jemima Khan, Cuba Gooding Jr and Mariella Frostrup pass through its doors. Take a camera - you never know who you will end up sitting next to at breakfast!
