Dilly Dally


Central London has a new speakeasy hotel – The Dilly – an independent 5-star luxury getaway, formerly Le Meridien Piccadilly. By Lauren Thomas

Since 1908, this iconic Piccadilly hotel has been a familiar ‘go-to’ destination just minutes from London’s theatreland. Formerly Le Méridien, The Dilly blends old-school tradition with a generous sprinkling of contemporary cool.

Just steps away from the hotel is the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain – more popularly called “Eros”, Waterstone’s –Europe’s grandest bookshop, the legendary Fortnum & Mason, and quintessentially charming Jermyn Street, so guests really are in the heart of the West End with easy access to all of the city’s cultural highlights.

First impressions on entering the lobby are wow-factor inspiring, with historic images and period maps of London, an eye-catching “Dilly” sign hanging from the ceiling, and copious floral displays.

The balcony above the lobby is the perfect hideaway -Balcony at The Dilly, serving complimentary drinks for suite guests including the deliciously dry Chapel Down sparkling wine from Tenterden in Kent.

Stay and Play

Accommodation at The Dilly ranges from stylish Standard rooms with Queen size or twin beds through to spacious Suites. Dilly Superior rooms offer that bit of extra space to unwind and relax. Perfect for two guests or solo travellers, king-size beds and 32-inch TVs are the perfect combination for some downtime after a busy day’s sightseeing.

The Dilly Executive Suite echoes the history of the building with a seating and dining area and oodles of natural light. The perfect choice for a special occasion stay or celebration.

Wining and Dining

Under elegant arches and slanting glass ceilings sits the vibrant restaurant, Terrace at The Dilly; a welcome pause from the fast London pace. Guests can join for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, with an exquisite London-themed afternoon tea, a firm favourite.

A best-kept secret - Secret Garden Terrace at The Dilly, is the only outdoor balcony overlooking Piccadilly. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and relax, surrounded by birch trees, greenery, hanging vines and silk floral blooms.

Enjoy Château La Gordonne rosé wines, champagnes, and delicious bites from the special summer menu.

For Indian foodie delicacies during your stay, look no further than Madhu’s. Over four decades, Madhu’s Restaurant has built a reputation for quality, dedication, creativity and flair in one of the world’s best-loved cuisines.

Spa and Swim

At 25 metres, The Dilly boasts one of the longest indoor swimming pools in London. Also, as part of the Health Club, guests can enjoy use of the state-of-the-art fitness centre. The Spa at The Dilly is an indulgent treat, with therapists and aestheticians trained in pure, natural products and all services tailor-made.
