I stayed previously in a hotel on this site so it was interesting to see how much it had changed. Such a superb location for me as I was going to a meeting in the nearby Lycee and only a few steps from South Kensington tube. The hotel was fabulous and the staff were so proud of the hotel that they did everything to ensure that I had a really great few days there. The decor was bright and modern but in no way cold. The Library was well-stocked with a very eclectic mix of books. Although my room was on the 'bijou' side it was a quirky and comforting refuge and I really appreciated the stock of complimentary soft drinks in the bedside fridge, the fabulous range of toileteries, brilliant selection of tv channels and the easy to operate safe.
There was a good variety of eating opportunities - even at breakfast there was no need to feel forced into 'conforming' and lunch in the Drawing Room was a delightful experience.
