We were first given a room smelling of tobacco smoke but were offered a better room when we complained. The staff were very attentive and the room facilities were very good, apart from a slow basin drain which was quite smelly. The only real complaint was a very poor breakfast, no fresh coffee, poor quality cooked food even though the... More

This was the 3rd year we have chosen the Queens Gate for an extended stay for a series of BBC Proms concerts at Royal Albert Hall. We've gotten to know the Queens Gate as our "London summer home" for 3 years. The staff is pleasant and helpful, breakfast is excellent and quite diverse, and the location is perfect for our... More

A very lovely hotel, offering a majestic entrance that is totally in keeping with the desirable location, in which it is set. Helpful staff that were most aimable. Wonderfully comfortable bed, The bathroom housed a narrow shower cubicle, however, the shower itself was very powerful. The location was idyllic given the short walking distances to both Hyde Park and the... More

Boutique hotel in great locAtion with Hyde Park at the end of road and 7 minute walk to underground. Clean and tidy room but bathroom door opened across vanity so made it very difficult to use. The staff responded positively to our concern and we were given another room the next day. Staff helpful but not overly friendly

Great value for money, (and I have been traveling to London for over 25 years so I speak from experience.). The rooms are large by European standards and house keeping was perfect.
