Our rooms here were very, very nice. Just a bit smaller than usual but I was expecting that. Clean....the staff are friendly and their restaurants were enjoyable for just sitting and chatting. Also - the food was very good and that's unusual, I think, at a chain hotel. So kudos to you!

I was put up in this hotel by the RHS as I was judging at the Chelsea Flower Show. The facilities at the hotel were more than adequate, the staff efficient, the room clean and with good facilities and it has its own taxi rank which makes travel very convenient and easy.

Tour buses, underground rail and normal buses all outside the hotel. Cafes and restaurants all within walking distance 500 meters maximin, if you want a pub meal the Glouster Arms value for money. The hotel is very clean but the rooms are a little small, that said it is probably the best position hotel in Kensington and the breakfast restaurant... More

My mother and I stayed here for one night on 9/5/15 whilst we enjoyed a weekend in London. The hotel is ideally located for the museums in Kensington and is minutes walk from Gloucester Rd tube station making it ideal for exploring the centre of the capital. The rooms are well furnished and clean, although the bathrooms could do with... More

Hotel is in great location, beside the tube station and in a great area of London. Check in was very smooth and the room was a decent size and spotless. Bar in the hotel was very busy but I was disappointed with the cost and quality of the food, £15.90 for a burger and chips was the only down side... More

We stayed here for one night and found it to be an ideal position for our visit. The check in and out was efficient and the ladies on reception were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was very quiet although on the small side was spotlessly clean and fresh. We really enjoyed the good choices for breakfast which was included... More

I was booked in here by my company as I was running a conference the following day. As I was a platinum member of IHG rewards club I got an upgrade to an executive room (thanks guys) the room was very comfy and clean. I ate in the bar and although very busy the food was good (value and quality)... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
