I have stayed here several times before and it isn't my first choice in London but it's on my businesses books so often get no choice. It is what it is, I agree with many of the comments both good and bed. Tonight I've been particularly disappointed as around 10pm a man walked into my room, saw me and said... More

Situated in Kensington this hotel is next to the Kensington Close. It is a very big hotel with a great choice of restaurants and really excellent staff who are friendly and go out of their way to greet you. The internal decoration of the hotel is more striking than the external appearance. The hotel rooms are large and while looking... More

Hotel just about clean enough and staff are pleasant. Main issue is cost is too high for the quality of the rooms which are finished in 90's deco worth noisy air con. Breakfast a busy affair where people are processed through the system. Come on millennium this is a cash cow where you have to give something back occasionally.

Stayed here for 6 nights on business. Although the hotel and rooms are a bit dated, you can't beat the location. Its a five minute walk from the High Street in Kensington, three minutes from the Tube station, and there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The staff is also another big plus at this hotel - they are... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Location is really good. It's a nice area, quiet and only 2 minutes walk from Kensington High Street Tube station. Reception area is really pleasant and the reception staff were friendly and efficient. The room we booked was classed as a Superior but this is actually the basic room. It was, however, perfectly adequate for our... More

As far as first impressions go, this hotel gave me a great one. The reception staff were extremely friendly and allowed us to check in early with no questions asked and we were given a room with a lovely view over the city. We had booked a club room, which unknown to us included some complimentary drinks so that was... More

This is a good location for a London Hotel and the standard of service is generally very good. A few observations however - although I had booked a 7 night stay in advance - I was frustrated to have to wait until 1530 before my room was available - too long in my opinion. My room was at the back... More

I am very well traveled internationally and for this hotel to call itself a FOUR star hotel is untruthful and misleading. I would call it a 2 star, even accept 3 star but for them to say they are four stars - no way! I would not have been as disappointed with this hotel had it just been up front... More
