We stayed here for one night as we were going to the theatre. All staff were absolutely lovely, friendly and helpful. I would not class the rooms as 5*, they were very dated with chipped furniture and the bath was badly chipped with an old-fashioned tiny shower head over it. There were nice Penhaligon toiletries in the bathroom though. The bedding was of very poor quality, the pillows were old and almost flat and the quilt was very thin so we got cold in the night. The heating was very hit and miss too, maybe they were saving money as the hotel was almost empty according to the receptionist. We did have a lovely view of Kensington Palace though. I also thought they were rather mean with the teabags, just 2 in the room so we had to choose between tea on our arrival or the next morning. Due to the coronavirus situation, the hotel was almost empty but we were asked if we wanted to pay for an upgrade. I would have thought that they would have automatically upgraded customers who hadn't cancelled as a thank you. The food at breakfast was of a high quality but I was very disconcerted to see a customer at the breakfast buffet wearing pyjamas (a fully grown man)! I did wonder if he had washed himself that morning before coming down to breakfast and how hygenic it was. I feel the hotel should have had a word with him and asked him to get dressed. I probably wouldn't stay here again as there is a nearby 5* hotel (the Milestone) which is so far superior, I would go there next time.

Come to this hotel a lot for work and personal trips, and it's always a great experience. Staff are friendly and quick to respond, the area is nice to walk around for restaurants and shopping, and area is open later than most spots in London. Having access to the park for runs or walks is also nice, and it's at a good location for dealing with London traffic, although a bit less accessible to public transport. The restaurants are high quality.

This was the second time in two years we have used the Royal Garden Hotel as an event production base, staying for nearly 3 weeks and using the majority of the lower ground meeting spaces and booking close to 90x rooms for the crew and staff. Two years ago I was incredibly grateful for all of their help in making a very stressful event run so smoothly, and the experience this time was equally fantastic. From my initial enquiry with them in December 2019 regarding rates and availability through to my last email comms with Bettina a couple of weeks ago about invoices [I know, this is a very overdue review!] every member of the hotel staff have been courteous, professional and kind. Their sense of good humour when dealing with our crazy requests was noticed by all of our crew and helped our morale hugely. I would like to thank them all for making our stay so easy and welcoming, and I cannot begin to imagine the amount of work that they all put in behind the scenes every day to make the whole operation run so smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone considering a high end hotel with a personal touch [be it for business or leisure purposes], based right in the heart of London and near to all of its amenities Particular thanks - and apologies for those whose names I have forgotten and not listed here, it is my poor memory at fault! - must go to the legend that is Alan Robinson in Operations for looking after us throughout the duration, the great team of Surina Chand & Alexandru Caramida from Reception for calmly dealing with our never ending room requests/tweaks/additions, and of course Huong for overseeing our entire room reservation grid and being so positive when faced with our every request. Final thanks must go to Bettina Sanders, Senior Conference & Events Manager, who handled our booking two years ago as well. I was delighted for the opportunity to work with her again as she is so calm and unflappable, and really made the hotel part of the event feel very effortless. Thank you all again, and hopefully see you soon!

Disappointed with substandard bathroom. Water did not drain out of bath, had to wait 15-20 minutes for water to drain before second person could use bathroom. Plumbing was noisy. Good location and underground car park handy.
