We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights from Fri 15th to Sunday 17th November. We were celebrating an anniversary and the forthcoming arrival of our first baby. We could not have asked for more from the staff- we had complimentary fruit and chocolates in our room, a lovely handwritten welcome card signed by staff and also had a complimentary late check out. Staff are totally professional and can't do enough to help. The hotel has recently been refurbished and the rooms are of a very good standard. Rooms were slightly on the smaller side, hence my not giving 5 stars but were really very good. The location is ideal- across the road from Hyde Park and Kensington Palace and the nearest tube station (Queensway) was a straight 2 minute walk. The hotel is above a petrol station (the main entrance is on the adjacent road to this) but this did not have a negative impact on our stay at all. In fact the petrol station shop is a part of one of the more upmarket supermarket chains but still cheaper than lots of places in London which meant we were able to buy some lovely, reasonably priced sandwiches for lunch and snacks and drinks for our room. Breakfast was good - all freshly prepared with a varied range of options. We would definitely stay here again and would most definitely recommend this hotel.
