This was a Travelzoo voucher (which are usually very good) but this restaurant was better than I expected. Went on a sunday evening with my partner, and on arrival with "impromptu" shopping bags, we were greeted by a friendly face who offered to keep our bags safe during the meal. We were shown to our table immediately (we were early... More

This is our third visit to the Restaurant for an evening. It was my husbands birthday and we dined in the restaurant which was buzzing with contented customers. The staff are so lovely and friendly too. The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. They even presented my husband with a lovely chocolate Happy Birthday plate... More

This was one of the many hotels which could only offer a walk in shower, ie one not over the bath, only if I paid significantly extra, I declined to pay and took my chances. The bath was 2/3 the height of my walking stick, quite narrow and difficult to access. Not a good outcome for me. However the bed... More

Booked afternoon tea here for my friend's 65th birthday, excellent from start to finish, welcoming staff and waiters, great selection of teas, champagne, sandwiches and cakes plus a pianist playing gently throughout. Although a modern hotel it lacked nothing in atmosphere, would definitely book again. For £36 in London good value.

This is by far the best hotel we have stayed in in London. We have been travelling here almost every year for the past 15. We usually stuck to the same hotel in South Kensington for budget and location reasons and just felt it was run down and "by its best" and decided to go a bit more up market.... More

Nothing positive to say. Due to following reasons: 1- unrespected reception staff for the particulat critical situations since we are here for long period they always insisted in changing the rooms every week without any concerns of our request. 2- They can put the new guest with the same room category in which we are in currently in the dame...

This hotel is in a great location. The rooms are large and comfortable. Many rooms overlook Kensington Gardens. Only a 5 minute walk to the High Street Kensington Tube Station for access to all of London and surrounding areas through the Tube system. There are many shops, restaurants and pubs nearby. The bus stop for Bus Route 9 is right... More

We cannot fault this hotel, room = perfect, dinner=perfect, breakfast =perfect. We were treated so well from the moment we arrived until we checked out. Had a room overlooking kensington gardens, well worth it. The biggest rooms we have had stayed in when in London.Great Location. Loved the cocktails!
