This hotel was advertised as 4 star. It is nothing like that, more like 1 or 2 star. We booked a Superior Double room. When we arrived, fairly late at night, we were taken to a room that was barely big enough for the bed. The bathroom was tiny and there were virtually no amenities. It was to late to... More

As a regular guest at the Executive rooms I think that there is some confusion in previous reviews. I do know that many guests' bookings get swapped into the "Townhouse" (now the Park Grand London Kensington) or sometimes other hotels in the group. This has never happened to me so I cannot comment. However there does seem to be some... More

The room was so small you could not walk around the bed. There was no where you could lie down an average sized suit case. Everything was small, I'm 5 ft 8 and my feet hung out the bed. I could not easily fit in the shower (and I'm not fat!), I couldn't bend down to pick up the shampoo... More

Spent a couple of days midweek here and was pleasantly surprised after reading previous reviews. The room was a little tired; small area of wallpaper peeling from wall, few rust patches and watermarks in bathroom, television signal was not very good and had only 2 channels. However, this did not spoil our stay at all as we were using the... More

Would not recommend! +2 mins walk from Earls Court tube station The porter on shift was very friendly and helpful. - Disinterested reception, unwelcoming, didn't make eye contact. Receptionist didn't know the difference between a twin and a double (worrying for a hotel receptionist) Didn't understand why you had to pay an extra £10 as a deposit if you were... More

Stayed here for business in March 2014. The room is decent for London. Small as usual. I had a club room which included a fridge. The front desk staff are attentive and friendly. The hotel is easily accessed by Bayswater Station, but you can avoid escalators by walking a few extra steps to Queens way station. I would stay here... More

We booked this hotel and were very happy with the price and location. When we arrived however, the room we were put in (room 001) was literally on top of the underground line, with the whole room rattling when it went by every 3 minutes! To be fair, I asked to be moved and they managed to move us to... More

The Hogarth Road rooms and 9 Knaresborough Place Exec rooms are all part of the Shaftesbury chain and all within a stones throw from each other. Firstly Knaresborough has no reception itself but shares one with a hotel in Hogarth Road. A fact that Shaftesbury didn't tell me and I am a regular user of their hotels. Eventually a nice... More
