A Very British Hotel: Inside the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, secures privileged access to one of the world’s most exclusive hotels across its busiest season of the year.
From July to September, the hotel receives high paying international guests, caters for big society weddings in the Ballroom and hosts wealthy families visiting London for their summer vacation.
The hotel has one of London’s most sought after addresses – in the heart of Knightsbridge it delivers ‘Town’ on the one side facing Harvey Nichols and ‘Country’ on the other as the only hotel backing directly onto a Royal Park – Hyde Park. It has been a favourite with the Royals, celebrities and the super-rich for more than 100 years.
Across the series, we meet Hollywood A Listers (including Morgan Freeman), follow a flamboyant Chinese wedding, observe the staff catering for Royal guests visiting from overseas and hosting fabulous celebrity events.
Meanwhile, the series delivers unique insights from the staff below stairs on what it is like delivering to the high standards of some of the world’s most exacting guests.
