The room was very clean with comfortable bed. We arrived late at night, everything was so easy, check-in was seamless. The location was key for us, few minutes walk to Earls court tube was awesome. Additionally, there were a lot of restaurants around the hotel. It was just so great.

Found this hotel online and stayed for 3 nights Saturday - Tuesday for £260, which in London is an amazing price for a 4* hotel. We chose it mainly for the location and the price. The location is brilliant for people who want to visit an attraction in Kensington. It's 10 minutes walking time from Earls Court Tube & Gloucester... More

Booked a room on the day through Laterooms - rate was £155 no brekko. There were cheaper hotels but the rooms here looked nice and spacious and so we went for this. One of the deciding factors was also that this offered parking and we needed parking for a van overnight. Arrived and was shocked that we were given a... More

We booked a kingsize room but was upgraded to an executive room. The room was clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. There are many complaints about room size fr other reviews however we found it to be sufficient. Location is excellent with lots of dining options. Earls court and Gloucester rd stations are only minutes... More

Very friendly front desk staff, comfortable bedroom with excellent bed and not too far from Gloucester Road tube or Boris Bikes made for a wonderful stay. It is a smaller hotel than Millenium or Holiday Inn so more personalised service for less....!
