Travellers' Choice
Set within the Sea Containers building - originally designed by acclaimed American architect Warren Platner - on London’s South Bank, the hotel boasts 359 guest rooms and suites, Sea Containers restaurant serving up fresh modern cuisine, an award-winning experimental cocktail bar spearheaded by master mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana, and an exclusive rooftop bar with panoramic views over the River Thames. Designed by Design Research Studio under the creative direction of visionary Tom Dixon, Sea Containers London is also home to a maritime-inspired 56-seat cinema and spa. Inspired by the golden age of ocean cruising, a time when exotic ingredients were introduced to the world, and an abundance of fresh local produce was celebrated, the three distinctive food and drink venues each offer a dynamic experience. Flavourful dishes range from nourishing to hearty at Sea Containers Restaurant, which is perfect for an al fresco lunch by the river, sunset cocktails or an atmospheric dinner. Experience innovative cocktails in the award-winning Lyaness, voted as one of the top 50 World’s Best Bars, featuring a signature electric blue seating as well as the original sweeping green marble bar. Take in panoramic views of the London skyline from our rooftop bar 12th Knot, with its beautifully appointed lounge and outdoor terrace for unrivalled views over the River Thames.

We are not your "mate" in the cocktail lounge, and there is something to be said for a cocktail that I have heard of being included on the menu. Check in most excellent and usual and I cant wait for Breakfast buffet to be back.

My wife and I were very happy of our stay at Sea Containers on the 11th January. The room was clean, spacious, lovely view on the Thames and the city and close to two 2 tube lines (10min walk). But the highlight of our stay were the staffs. All polite, helpful and professional. Special mention to the lady working at the reception that night who made our stay amazing. Will definitely return
