This small but very charming boutique hotel with only 12 nicely decorated rooms is in the middle of the colorful Notting Hill area. The Hotel restaurant has equally been great for lunch, coffee or drinks. Only the breakfast was slightly less than expected - however good. It was a great value for money, fantastic experience which we will come back... More

From the moment we arrived all the staff were friendly and very helpful, good location with easy access to the tube and portobello market. The room was pleasant, roomy and had all all that is needed for a weekend stay, Over all very satisfied and will be stopping again. Special thanks to Louisa

This is a quite place in the middle of such a noisy and lively area, perfect for meeting up with friends when in need of catching up. Lunch times are my favourite time of the day to visit, however I love it in the late afternoon or early evening too. The staff always friendly and welcoming and the food is... More

Me and my family were in London to enjoy Eric Clapton at Royal Albert Hall. And for the third time we stayed at Portobello House. The first evening we had dinner at the Bistro and it was very good. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The personal are very friendly and helpful. To have the bus stop just over the... More

We had less than 24 hours in London as we were meant to be going to a Foo Fighters gig at Wembley - but that never came about. One of biggest reasons I booked Portobello House was from the photos online, it looked stylish & relaxed, plus the bar looked pretty cool. It was also an area of London we... More

Dear Sara, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We try to make our guests stay enjoyable, and although we have so many lovely repeat guests who write positive comments in our guest book (In reception) it really is nice for us when we get one online. We hope you will be back soon Kind regards Louisa More

We found Portobello House Hotel to be okay, but really not worth the high price charged. Our room was on the small size but reasonable and the hotel is nicely decorated. We felt short changed on a number of things: dreadful wifi that kept dropping out, one coffee each in the room but no tea, and a poor breakfast with... More

Dear Andy, Thanks for your feedback I am sorry you found our prices high, our nearest equivalent boutique Hotel is nearly twice our price. On the wifi, you are quite right it had been a problem. We had Virgin fibre optic internet installed , but there was a problem out of our control for nearly a week. It must have... More

All things considered, speaking as an English person, devastated with the price ! One night just to lay our heads down 100 pounds each, no English breakfast at all . Everybody we spoke to in employment at the bar/ hotel was foreign . Room clean , staff polite , and that's it !

Dear Tracey, Sorry you were unhappy with the price you paid. It was a Saturday night, and that night we had a waiting list of guests hoping that we would have a last minute cancellation. Most of our guests feel our prices are very reasonable for Notting Hill , in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and we have frequent... More

Let me start by saying that I think my husband and I were spoiled by the B&B we stayed at in Brussels before arriving in London so tough to compare to that. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. However, the room was average. On the small side with the standard tiny shower. Having a pub downstairs... More

Great room, great breakfast, nice venue and very helpful staff. The room was large, comfy and clean. We had chosen a "quiet" room (its window opened on low roofs and on a quiet open-air free-access balcony for hotel guests). The hotel felt very homey. We will definitely be back.
