My wife and I stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights. Although the location was good and the staff were OK, we found our room (in the basement) to be well below par. The room was grubby, to put it politely. The toilet and bathroom were run down, the carpet was worn and tattered, and the bed was... More

I went to Kensington Manor Hotel four times : I have read all these reviews saying it is a terrible place and I have to disagree : You have to consider the price which is very cheap for London (a single room with shower is only 45 pounds), and the excellent location near the underground, shops and restaurants. Of course... More

It's true that this old fashioned hotel hasnt been renovated in a zillion years. However, the size of some of the bigger rooms and it being 2 blocks away from the tube stop more than makes up for it to me. I especially love using the big grocery store right above the tube and carrying my carry-on to the Underground... More

We had stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and have to say that it was a nightmare, right from the time that we had a airport pick up arranged by the hotel, for a price of £20 and we were later asked to pay £30 for the same, The room was extremely small & smelly, the bathtub even worst,... More

This hotel was good. The only downfall was that we couldnt stand up in the bath and there was no lift to any floors. But that didnt bother us. The staff were friendly. Rooms cleaned every day. The location was great too.

I have to agree - three adults stayed in the "suite" on the first floor and it was very worn and dirty. The staff seemed nice enough but the whole place very run down. We were out and about except for sleeping but it was just unpleasant being there at all because it was so dirty. We witnessed housekeeping "vacuuming"... More

I would never, never, never stay here again. The photo is lovely, but the rooms were grubby. The carpets filthy, the heat could not be controlled. The tea kettle was dirty, the bathtub and shower were full of mildew. I was afraid to use the towels, although they did smell clean. The breakfast room was awful. I recommend going to... More

While the location is fabulous, this hotel was terrible; it did not appear to have been updated in many years. Rooms were so over crowded with battered, worn-out furniture that vacuuming would have been impossible. We moved from a dusty third floor room with grubby carpeting to a ground floor room that was only slightly better because we could at... More

We have just got back from the Manor where we stayed for four days at the end of April 2004, and I have to say I agree with much of what has already been said. We chose the place as it offered a triple room in three stars for only £70 a night. Even having read the reviews here I... More

My wife and I and our two children aged 13 & 10 decided to stay here as it had a 4 person room and was near the Natural History and Science Museums etc. The Balmoral Suite rooms on the Ground Floor of the Hotel are very basic. The bathroom leaves a lot to be desired. It is old and dirty... More
