My daughter and I stayed for 5 nights. The location is wonderful near Holland Park, Notting Hill and Kensington High Street. I took the Underground from Heathrow to the Hammersmith station, and then walked an easy one mile to Holland Road. The Crowne and Sceptre is easy to spot as it is a pub with tables and chairs out front,...

I stayed one night prior to an exhibition at Olympia, super location! No real parking - on street is not easy to find as most is permit holders only. I parked in Olympia's car park 3. Room was lovely, trendy, clean and very comfortable. Modern bathroom with toiletries. Breakfast was a simple but tasty continental selection with great coffee!

Stayed here whilst attending the horse show at Olympia. Booked the room a few weeks before and received a text on the day of our arrival saying the room was ready and giving us a local traffic update, a nice touch. We arrived late afternoon to a pretty busy pub, first impressions were good but this is where it went...

We had the most wonderful stay at Crown and Sceptre, Olympia - what friendly staff, delicious food and supremely comfortable bed! Just what was needed after a hard weeks work at Spirit of Christmas. I would highly recommend this gem of a place to anyone fancying anything from a friendly pint to wholesome meal to a luxurious nights stay. Just...

Stayed at Crown and Sceptre for 2 nights over August Bank Holiday. Upon arrival, we were very warmly greeted by a staff member and as check-in time is 2pm we were a bit early so we had some food and a couple of drinks, the food was very good and if we'd had time during our stay I'd liked to...

I would just say thank you to the great staff on this hotel. To stay at a pub was charming by it self. My son and I stayed there for 3 nights. The rooms was clean (every day) and cozy. The pub was great and the staff very helpful and "down-to-earth". The buss just around the corner and the underground...

This fantastic pub was a 25 meter totter from our Airbnb stay..what a fortunate turn of events. Try the local beers & the fish and chips. Sit outside and watch the people & traffic flow by. Great service and an even better opportunity to meet local characters. A must do for this part of London, crazy if you pass it...

Situated close to Kensington Olympia overground station (which wouldn't accept our underground tickets), the hotel is at least a 10 min. or so walk from the nearest actual tube stations. The pub itself is a bare-boarded welcome antithesis of modern 'corporate' affairs, and our room was of a good size with shabby chic furniture, a comfortable bed and an excellent,...

Just to say tanks to Freddie and her amazing friendly staff. A great stay in a very comfortable and beautifully appointed room, above a great pub in Kensington. Ideal for Olympia (just a 2 minute walk). I travel all over the world on business and little oases of comfort like this are a god-send, in a frantic world. I will...
