My husband selected this Hotel,after looking for a Hotel close to Earl's court, but close enough to Knightsbridge for some shopping too.
Having been recently reviewed in 'ELLE' magazine, I was sure it would be a good choice.
We stayed for just one night, Sunday, and were greeted warmly at check-in.
Our room was not ready, but to be expected when you arrive early, our luggage was stored and headed off out.
The location of this Hotel is pretty perfect.
It's minutes from the tube, and situated conveniently close to restaurant and bars, but not in the thick of it.
A pleasant stroll up past the V & A Museum will soon have you in Knightsbridge, whilst in the other direction a 15 min brisk walk will have you at Earls court -There is of course the tube, for those in a rush!!
I loved the decor of the Hotel and the ambience.
Although not that cold at the weekend, this really would be a cosy retreat from a cold winters day!
Our room was thoughtfully decorated,and a decent size. My only disappointment from our whole stay was the tiny bathroom.
As we were there such a short time I can't say it caused a huge issue, but just not to have a bath available seemed such a shame to what was otherwise a perfect stay.
The rooms and all public areas were very clean and well maintained, and service was good.
We will return to this Hotel, but next time I will make sure I book a room with a larger bathroom!!!
This Hotel is best for Location, Ambience and overall high standards.
