Location is outstanding for anyone

Location is outstanding for anyone who wants to be next to Harrods and/or Knightsbridge Tube. Service would be better if less aloof. Cigar smoke annoying in tiny bar. Little known gem: full tea in delightful, peaceful little nook. Bedrooms well appointed but not for claustrophobes.
