The Lanesborough represents the latest masterpiece hotel of Oetker Collection, which reopened in July 2015 following an extensive 18-month renovation. In one of London’s most beautiful dining rooms, the Lanesborough’s restaurant Céleste features menus by Executive Chef Florian Favario, protégé of Paris’ most esteemed three Michelin-starred Chef, Eric Frechon.
The cuisine in Céleste draws its inspiration from Florian’s travels and his prestigious role in Paris, with menus using the finest of British produce and ingredients, prepared using classic French techniques with Florian’s distinctive flair.
The domed glass roof in Celeste lets the natural light into the richly decorated dining room during the day, while in the evening dazzling chandeliers illuminate above diners. Bas-relief friezes and fluted columns underline the classical splendour.
The restaurant has 85 covers and includes a private dining room overlooking the main dining area, which can comfortably seat 12 guests and be closed or open to the main room.
The Lanesborough has a range of other private dining rooms available for all types and sizes of events, details as below,
The largest venue within The Lanesborough and immediately accessible from the front hall, the Belgravia is a palatial setting for board meetings, wedding dinners and the most sophisticated of social occasions.

Its recent refurbishment has re-illuminated the room’s Regency splendour.

The Westminster Room offers another distinct contrast: the airy conservatory atmosphere of daylight flooding through a dramatic glass roof. Diaphanous canopies beautifully diffuse natural light throughout the room, creating a glorious, sun-filled setting for a wedding ceremony, reception or private dinner.
Chinoiserie-style wallcoverings by de Gournay illuminate the ambience further, and the room’s crystal chandelier provides a breathtaking centrepiece for the most sparkling occasion.

As befits a room so named, The Wellington evokes the grandeur and distinction of the great homes of the Regency period. Tall double pilasters around the walls and the room’s ornate ceiling create an imposing setting, flanked at either end by 19thcentury fireplaces and majestic gilt mirrors.
The Wellington Room adjoins the Westminster and Wilkins Rooms and can be used in conjunction with either, as a private dining or reception room, or as a breakout area for meetings.

A warm, inviting and charismatic private dining room, St George’s mixes Regency opulence with a hint of glamour.

High ceilings, chandeliers, period artworks, an original Regency fireplace and a dado featuring beautiful wood marquetry make for majestic surroundings; the carpet finishes the room with a dash of modern panache
