About The Capital Hotel
The world’s closest hotel to Harrods and a refuge of English elegance and comfort, The Capital, Knightsbridge is one of the last 5 red star family owned and run hotels in London and takes great pride in its high levels of personal service. Each of the 49 bedrooms are individually decorated with an emphasis on English design showcasing a sumptuous medley of classic fabrics, antiques and works of art from the owner’s private collection.
The restaurant, Outlaws at The Capital which was recently awarded a Michelin star, has been masterminded by Nathan Outlaw, arguably Britain’s greatest seafood chef who also holds two Michelin stars in his home town of Rock, Cornwall. The restaurant additionally has two private dining rooms perfect for entertaining.
There is a quiet sophisticated charm to the bar where Cesar Da Silva, the UK's youngest Keeper of The Quaich, a master of whisky presides. He is happy to offer classes in cheese and whisky pairing or simply on how to make the perfect Martini. A 2013 winner of the UK Tea Guild's Award of Excellence for its Afternoon Tea, a perennially popular offering that has become a firm favourite with hotel guests and weary shoppers alike.
This excellent location is not only ideal for shopping, Hyde Park and the Albert Hall but also for families visiting the world famous Natural History Museum or Victoria & Albert Museum. The Capital is lucky enough to have its own on-site parking and Knightsbridge underground station (Piccadilly Line) is less than a minute away and direct to Heathrow.
