Sanderson, in the heart of London’s West End, offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and well-being. The landmarked 1950s building has been transformed by Philippe Starck into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomising a new luxury that is smart, pared-down and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. With newly renovated rooms concepted by designer Tim Andreas of Banjo, the rooms maintain their sense of whimsy while offering state of the art details and luxurious touches at every turn.
Agua spa, Sanderson’s renowned temple of body and soul, offers a vast array of treatments to pamper and soothe, restore and resurrect. Multiple dining and cocktail offerings grace Sanderson. Guests can dine al fresco year round at Courtyard Garden, and its Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea is on the “must-do” lists of London’s elite. Purple Bar provides an intimate space for cocktails and conversation, while the Billiard Room evokes an old world clubby vibe.
Just steps from Oxford Street shopping and the Soho district in London, Sanderson is a five star luxury boutique hotel ideally located for weekend breaks or business travel.

Visited the Long Bar in the Sanderson Hotel after eons.Back when it first opened it would be buzzing every night, so it was disappointing on the particular Saturday we went it was quite dead.The outdoor eating area is delightful.Service is good and we scoffed down the most perfect chips at the bar.Prices are reasonable too for Central London. Would return here its got a lovely vibe.
This place is a total trip. One of the trendier places to stay in London.... definitely has a high quality scene....and late night social aspects. Good business, good company. The staff are all highly trained and very adept. They care. Great rooms. Nice gym. Great bars. Excellent Hotel
Went for Alice in Wonderland high tea. So worth the price. The service was beyond wonderful. You can try all the teas and refill your eats as you desire. 5 of us and no refill needed. Our staff filled up a box of sweets to go and I purchased Alice and Cheshire cat teas for home.
Had Mad Hatter afternoon tea and paid around £40 (with the afternoon tea week offer).
First of all, I was surprised the appearance of the Sanderson hotel. It looks like 3 star cheap hotel. There is no doorman and reception room was funny but not modern.
However the restaurant was good. There is an open roof cozy garden. Looks very cute and funny.
The afternoon tea was great. Not only it looks cute and funny, but also really tasty. One of the most tasty afternoon tea I have ever eaten.
My favourite was marshmallows. It was fruity and fluffy. If you are searching for good afternoon tea, this place is the best option.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.... Afternoon Tea: My mother & I traveled to London from Paris just for the Mad Hatter Afternoon Tea, in fact, we arrived in costume to make it an extra special day. Upon arrival, it was a rainy Sunday afternoon, most of the seating was closed due to the rain coming down into the restaurant, so we sat on the outer edge near the back bar, not ideal but we made the most of it. However, things took a turn, my mother order the "Black and White Tears" cocktails which contained Coffee, (my mom thought it said Cocoa as in Chocolate not Coffee) rather than complaining she drank it, which immediately sent her to the toilet with diarrhea because the coffee used in the cocktail acted like a laxative to her. She was extremely embarrassed & very uncomfortable, with stomach cramps. Once the tea tray of goodies arrived to our table (which was pretty to look at, but not really edible) you could tell the food & sweet treats were prepared ahead of time, not FRESH and already was STALE. Our biggest complaint was that the sweets were "HARD" & we were unable to eat them as they were dried up from being left out & exposed. The savory treats/food was also stale & not very good at all. There was no taste & we were very unhappy. I felt so bad for my mom as she did not get to enjoy any of this special experience because she kept going back to the toilet. Finally, I just asked for the bill so we could leave, I was left at the table for an extended period while my mom was in the toilet so I felt we should just leave. The server asked if we wanted a box to take our food home & I said "NO!", rather than causing a scene at the restaurant & cause further embarrassment I politely just paid the bill & waited until we returned home back to the US to contact the Manager of the Restaurant. I explained the situation & requested a partial refund, however, the manager delayed the process & involved a food poisoning investigator which took 1 month and still no refund, DESPITE NUMEROUS EMAIL to them.
