Founded by the owner of the nearby Savoy Theatre, this hotel has been at the centre of entertainment and celebrity in London for over a century. Down the years silver screen idols from Elizabeth Taylor to Nicole Kidman have stayed here. Right in the heart of Theatreland, on the banks of the Thames, the hotel’s setting is imposing. Fabulous views of the river even have Monet’s seal of approval – he painted them during a period of residence there. The Thames Foyer, where tea is served, is surrounded by a fabulous collection of Art Deco mirrors. Watch yourself tuck into a delectable afternoon’s worth of bite-size delights, reflected in their highly-polished surfaces. Served on delicate Royal Doulton bone china, the attention to detail is superb. Don’t forget to try the Savoy Blend tea either, it’s quite unique. The resident pianist finishes off the ceremonial atmosphere. If you are heading out to the theatre later on, why not go for the Theatre Tea? A selection of savouries including welsh rarebit, shrimps and quiche, followed by scones, apple crumble, trifle and carrot cake, is a pleasant way to fill up before the performance.
As of 15th December 2007 the Savoy has closed to undergo a £100 million restoration. The hotel will reopen in March 2010.
