Probably a 5* hotel...just not for my stay
The Mandrake hotel is probably a five star hotel; we just didn't get that comfort while staying here. The Mandrake rooms are very dark and the lighting in the room doesn't help. In addition, some of the lights in the room wouldn't turn on. Amenities like an alarm clock and a coffee maker were not in the room. The first night the smell of cigarette smoke filled the room. Called reception and they said they would "send someone to look into it." The next two nights the same thing happened. We finally got moved to another room because the smoke was unbearable. The hotel said they could move us but that, "it would be a hassle." You know what a hassle is? Having to inhale smoke for almost three nights straight and feel sick. These are non-smoking rooms, yet there is still smoke getting into the rooms...? This hotel is probably a five star hotel, but I can't say that my stay here was five star worthy. The best amenity to come out of this experience was the free breakfast. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. Also, the location of the hotel is near three underground stations for easy travel (Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus, and Goodge Street). If you take anything away from this review: 1) make sure to get a room away from the "smoking area" and 2) get the free breakfast.

Poor 2.0
Charged "deep cleaning" (150 quid) on last day because I had, apparently, at some point left my room in an insufficiently clean state. I never did so. I was advised I could ask the "accommodation manger" for more information if I wished. I did wish, but since my flight left in the next two hours, I was not given the time to fulfill my wishes. As soon as any ostensible affront to hotel cleanliness is reported by the cleaning staff, it should be communicated to the alleged delinquent, who can then discuss the transgression with the hotel administration. To leave this to check-out time is unacceptable and smacks of the lowest of scams. This last-minute add-on of expenses has only been equalled in my experience in Bucharest where they charged me bogus mini-bar expenses as I was checking out. SHAME ON YOU,

Beautiful hotel in a very central location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Mandrake Hotel. It’s as lovely as the photos you see online. The breakfasts were included in our stay and I would recommend this option. The food was excellent quality but would be very expensive if you added this on after your booking. The surrounding area is filled with pubs and restaurants of an incredible variety of cuisine and we enjoyed dining locally for dinner. I had read other reviews complaining about the noise (as the hotel bar has a cool nightclub vibe at night) but we were on the first floor and we weren’t disturbed by noise and I am a light sleeper. We loved it there, the staff were friendly and professional, the rooms were beautiful and very clean and comfortable. Walking distance to all the west end shows and Oxford St Shops. I’d happily stay again.

Very good 8.0
Lovely space & staff but there are better options
Overall the hotel was a fun experience. Although I’m not sure we’d stay here again. I LOVED the greenery but sound carries easily and early morning/late nights can be annoying with normal activity from the restaurant. The staff is lovely and beyond accommodating. Charlie is a star and was always going above and beyond. There systems seem to not be connected which is very frustrating as a guest. I had housekeeping banging at my door at 11:05 telling me I missed checkout when my account had a guaranteed late 1pm checkout. Another hiccup at checkout when they claimed I had a balance from the restaurant when I paid at the bar at the time of dining. Again, little deals but pretty frustrating for a traveler.

A Must Go !
Firstly WOW !!! what a stay, this hotel is by far the best hotel I have seen/Stayed in for a long time! I am truly gutted that I didn’t book 2 nights and I moved to a different hotel for Sunday!! From the moment you walked in the doorman took our bags, the walk up the dark entrance into the lobby really makes you feel like you are entering a members-only Hotel, the detail the Mandrake has taken in its design is stunning !! the reception team where fantastic and went out of there way we went into our room where we found a birthday card and cupcake as it was a birthday! Everywhere you go in the hotel really leaves you taken back by all the small details!!!
