This hotel was very beautiful and very classy. I was in the provence suite and the decor was beautiful. The staff were well trained and helpful however I did not particularly enjoy my stay for the following reasons: 1) there was no tea making facilities in the room. There was only a nespresso so I had to order, wait almost... More

Extraordinary service and a magnificent setting. Magical on every front, I could never stay any where else! For mean lakes is truly a home away from home. The intimacy and discreet luxury sets Blake's apart from it's peers. I am a loyal fan for almost 20 years and it just gets better and better

Love this hotel. I stayed there for 3 nights. Great drinks in the bar and the food was good. Staff was very friendly and professional. Nice atmosphere and very cool rooms (only a little bit small). Good hotel for weekend in London.

I've been staying at Blakes Hotel since the early 1980's. It was the coolest place to stay then and remains cool. The Front of House Manager, Mickey McGaw, makes damn sure that your stay is a memorable one.

Blakes public areas are being renovated. As a result it is currently a bed and breakfast not a hotel. No bar or public area available beyond a small makeshift restaurant. The room was nice and the staff polite but this cannot be described as a hotel at the moment. Breakfast pastries tasted as if reheated not very fresh.

We spent last Saturday night at Blakes. It was our first night away since having had a baby so we had treated ourselves. Given the price we were expecting a luxury hotel with service to match but we were both really disappointed. Firstly the hotel was being refurbished, we were not informed of this when we booked and had i... More

My wife and I recently stayed in a Directors Double and whilst the room was elegantly designed and very comfortable the stay was let down by the small details that I would have expected a hotel of this alleged quality to have easily succeeded in delivery. During our stay the hotel was being renovated and this in no way impacted... 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.
