Discover Central London’s best hotel for Christmas, The Dilly

This month, Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland reopened its gates for another momentous year and just a short stroll away is The Dilly, a luxury hotel that’s in prime location of all the excitement and merriment that Central London has to offer during the most joyous time of year.

Christmas in the Heart of London

London’s festive decorations are now up, with Christmas trees becoming staple features in windows and the holiday cheer spreading throughout the capital. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in the city’s enchanting lights or enjoy a spot of Christmas shopping this year, then look no further.

Located in the heart of Piccadilly Circus, The Dilly hotel places guests amongst the UK’s most popular shops and department stores, with Oxford Street the base for Christmas shoppers from all over the world.

You can easily get lost in the likes of Selfridges or Hamleys during your Christmas shopping before heading back over to The Dilly to immerse yourself in a soothing and luxurious foot massage after pounding the pavement all day.

Spa Day

The hotel boasts a fabulous range of Ishga treatments, making The Dilly’s urban sanctuary the perfect place to renew and rejuvenate your body and mind when you’re ready to escape the shoppers of Central London. The specialist treatment rooms are the ideal place to enjoy some ultimate ‘me time’, where you can choose from a wonderful selection including facials, massages and express treatments.

Derived from the Gaelic word for water and using four types of sustainable hand harvested seaweed, Ishga is results-driven skincare derived from the ocean, and backed by science.

Make the most of the facilities at The Dilly and make sure you enjoy a leisurely swim in the pool before winding down in the steam room to enhance your super relaxing experience here.

Afternoon Tea with a Festive Twist

Spend a festive morning exploring the traditional Christmas markets, sipping on hot chocolate and even taking to the ice rink before pressing pause on the buzz of London and indulging in some afternoon tea beneath the elegant arches on the Terrace at The Dilly.

Piccadilly’s iconic hotel has launched its brand-new festive afternoon tea in the hotel’s exquisite and eye-catching Terrace at The Dilly. This classic British tradition, which features iconic London landmarks, has been given some festive flare for the season.

The new afternoon tea features beautifully crafted sweet treats that resemble some festive favourites and iconic London landmarks, including ‘Sir Snowman’, a homemade chocolate biscuit with hand-finished chocolate icing and ‘Terrace tree’, a pistachio and raspberry filled macaron. An indulgent chocolate crémeux Big Ben and lemon poppy seed red London telephone box can also be found on the menu.

If you want to say cheers to the joyous period, treat yourself to a luxurious glass of Pommery Brut Royal Brut NV or Pommery Brut Rosé Royal, which will pair exceptionally well with the sweet and savoury selections on your plate. Or you can choose from a wide range of different teas from The Tea Makers of London, such as the definitive English breakfast, peppermint, or something fruitier like the mango mocktail or sencha goji berry.


Don’t spend too long dwelling over your dinner plans and make sure to book a meal at the
hotel’s amazing in-house restaurant, Madhu’s. Offering an Indian menu erupting with vibrant flavours within its Grade II-listed Oak Room, Madhu’s is an unmissable dining destination which offers a memorable experience.

Madhu’s has built a reputation for quality, dedication, creativity and flair in one of the world’s best-loved cuisines. Loved by meat eaters as well as those following a plant-based diet, the menu features bold dishes full of colour and flavour, including the lentil based Makhani Dal, the prawn based Moilee Curry and the Boozi Bafu, which features Madhu’s highly popular signature spring lamb chops. 

After having a gander at the sparkling Christmas lights hanging above the likes of Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Regent Street, call it a day on the festive fun and make your way to Downstairs at The Dilly for a nightcap in this chic underground bar, accompanied by live entertainment at weekends from some of London’s most-talented pianists. Boasting 255 spacious bedrooms and 28 suites, The Dilly this Christmas is undoubtably Central London’s most coveted luxury hotel.
