We stayed here for one night for business and found the hotel very enjoyable. The room (we stayed in "Marmaduke", which has a double bed and is on the top floor) was great. A comfy bed, beautiful bathroom with a bath, coffee&tea facilities and basically everything you could wish for in a room.
The rest of the hotel is also great, although we were a bit disappointed with the cafe/restaurant, which - although it looks wonderful - closes at 23:00 at a Thursday night and doesn't serve any food after 22:00. Fortunately for latecomers like us, there are some other dining options nearby which serve until midnight. Continental breakfast is included in the price and comprises of toast, butter, jam, sweet rolls, some apples, orange/apple juice and coffee/tea. At extra cost it is possible to order English breakfast, eggs Benedict, etc. Besides from porridge with honey there was no vegetarian option. We were pleasantly surprised when we found out we did not have to pay extra for the eggs and bacon we had ordered besides our continental breakfast.
The hotel was perfectly located for us, but the fact that it's right next to a train station (Kensington Olympia) is a bit misleading as we found that almost no trains passed through there and were forced to take the tube anyway. No problem of course, as it's only a 10 minute walk to the nearest station, but something to consider before booking.
The hotel does not have any European plugs available for its guests.
