“Originally conceived as the final luxury railway hotel in the late 1800s, The Landmark was built in Gothic Revival style and certainly makes a grand statement in terms of presence even today. The main entrance on the Marylebone Road is stunning - from the discreet reception area a sweeping staircase leads you up to the stunning eight storey high Atrium which is filled with palm trees. The bedrooms and suites are very large for London standards. All are classic yet stylish, with plenty of details nodding to the property's glory days at the beginning of the twentieth century - Art Deco furniture and decor take centre stage. Dinner can be taken in either the Winter Garden (2 AA Rosettes) or Twotwentytwo (more casual). We enjoyed a delicious dinner in the Winter Garden Restaurant, which is worth a visit for its location alone (situated in the atrium). For drinks, definitely visit the Mirror Bar - the fantastic bar manager will listen to your likes and dislikes, then concoct something special that will hit the spot! On top of all this the Landmark has a health club and spa with 15 metre pool, jacuzzi and sanarium - the only gripe being that you have to pay for spa day membership to use the facilities. That said it is a luxurious treat in the heart of Marylebone and makes for a great city break base with its ease of access to all the major sights, plus superb shopping on the doorstep.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
The size of our rooms are very large and we have a lot of interconnecting rooms for families. Our location is directly opposite Marylebone station so very easy to access London and outside of London. The personalised service which guests receive and the extra special touches we do to make their experience memorable (i.e. birthday cards, complimentary birthday cake and Champagne for guests visiting for a birthday celebrations). Good value for money. The hotel is a Grade II listed building with original Victorian features and our wow factor which is our eight storey glass roof atrium. Guests are always amazed when they see it.
What is there to do in the area or on site?
We have four spa treatments rooms offering ESPA and VOYA spa treatments for guests. We have a 15 metre chlorine free swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Sanarium, steam rooms and a state of the art gymnasium. We are a 5 minute walk from Regents Park, ZSL London Zoo, Madame Tussauds, Sherlock Holmes museum and Marylebone High Street and Village. Just an 8 minute drive away is Oxford Street, Regents Street, Bond Street and Piccadilly Circus.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
Yes in the Winter Garden (two-AA rosette restaurant serving modern European cuisine) we serve sumptuous dinners, decadent lunches and we are rather well-known for our award-winning Afternoon Teas and indulgent Champagne Sunday Brunch. We also have our twotwentytwo restaurant & bar which has an extensive brasserie menu and serves dishes ranging from light to hearty to suit all appetites for lunch and dinner. Lastly we have The Mirror Bar which serves delicious cocktails, the best champagnes and an extensive list of fine wines and cognacs, it also has a fantastic menu of large canapé selections to share.
Which are your most popular room types, and why?
Executives – these rooms are huge for standard hotel bedrooms, averaging 52 sq metres / 560 square feet. Family Rooms are also very popular as they can cater for two adults and two children up to 12 years old and for bigger families or families with older children we have 35 connecting rooms so families can still have the privacy of their own space.
