Ambassador Hotel Review – The Savoy

- Kathy Lette, Author

Kathy Lette


Kathy Lette first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major motion picture by Oscar-winning director Bruce Beresford. Since then, she’s penned a plethora of bestsellers, including Mad Cows , Nip ‘n’ Tuck, Dead Sexy, and most recently, Men – A User’s Guide.


Located in the heart of London, the recently renovated Savoy is superb. The Savoy is the only major London hotel on the river. Strings of fairy lights flicker on the inky waters of the Thames all the way from the fluted Houses of Parliament to the Globe Theatre. Plus, you’re a leisurely stroll from London’s major art galleries and theatre district.

With its heated marble bathroom floor, deep, four-legged tub, Murano glass chandelier, silk wall coverings and Italian linens on a floaty King Size bed, my riverside suite was so absurdly sumptuous I never once got up before the crack of noon. Would you when you’re served breakfast in bed by a tautly-buttocked butler?

Stuart Gillies’ Savoy Grill is a culinary and visual delight. Less formal, but just as scrumptious is the River Room restaurant. It boasts a beautifully slick Art Deco décor with even slicker service. And the French influenced cuisine is outstanding…as is the Human Menu of movie, rock and opera stars in the American and Beaufort Bars. Flair and panache sum up the Savoy’s service. A staff of 500, including your own private butler, are there to satiate your every whim. The Savoy promises a truly enchanting and opulent experience, and totally delivers. One night in the Savoy and you’ll be smiling as smugly as a canary filled cat.

The Savoy promises a truly enchanting and opulent experience, and totally delivers.
