We had a great time staying here. The standard "Comfy" room was tight and the bathroom was tiny! However, the staff; Greg and Diana, were delightful. The hotel is in a great location; walking distance to Notting Hill Tube and close to Portobello market. Sally Clarke's is around the corner for breakfast. It is nicely decorated and clean with good bed linen. Overall, a lovely place to stay, we'll definitely be back but in a bigger room; go for a "Roomy" or "Splendid".

We stayed here for a weekend break. Whilst the communal areas, staff and location are fantastic the hotel lets itself down by relying heavily on its location and its history. As a Londoner this hotel is hugely overpriced and I think you can get much better for your money nearby. Our bedroom was ok more shabby than shabby chic however the bathroom was a massive let down! One big room with a bath and a tiny showroom with WC which was more appropriate for a Premier Inn - hugely disappointing I wanted to leave but my partner convinced me to stay. Having travelled extensively and stayed in some wonderful boutique hotels this is not what I would expect for nearly £500 a night. Judging by some other reviews it maybe simply down to what room you are lucky to get but this room was described as one of their signature rooms! I am afraid I wouldn't go back and for our next trip to Nottinghill we will stay elsewhere or in an AirBNB.

I had a Lovely overnight stay in this hotel. Since every room has a different theme, I requested for a specific bedroom and got same. I had a great time walking around the neighbourhood it was so quiet, the houses are nice and colourful. It is near the Portobello Road market where you can find a number of cafes, vintage shops a lot more. Staff were very pleasant and helpful as well. Got free chocolates too. 😉

Lovely boutique hotel in a great spot. Staff are lovely. The room wasn't ready but we were early at 11:30 so we left things with reception. We didn't have breakfast but we did use the Honesty Bar situated in the lounge at the back and it was very nice with a good selection of drinks and quality glasses. We booked a Comfy Double as we wanted some space and it was very comfy however the bathroom was miniscule. Probably the smallest I've ever seen! We were room 15. The bed was very large but fantastic. The room had air conditioning and a ceiling fan. Would definitely go again.
