After reading the reviews I was a little worried about what to expect at the hotel, however it yet again goes to show that people really do only go away to moan about the smallest of things. On arrival at the hotel we was met by very friendly and welcoming staff, check in was painless and we were soon at our room. The hotel was still having new carpets put down but this was not going to spoil our stay!
The hotel room was clean and functional, a little on the small side however for somewhere to sleep and get changed it was more than adequate. The only thing that looked out of place was that the TV was not a flat screen which you would expect in a 4* hotel.
The bar/restaurant/reception areas were plush and very modern and again the service was very good. Breakfast was great with a wide choice available. The hotels location is fantastic just a few minutes walk from High Street Kensington tube station, and there are places within the vicinity to eat and drink aswell.
All in all a great hotel to book as a base for London. Personally I can't see what all the fuss is about!
