The Kensington Hotel is an expensive but well worth it. My family and I stayed over a week end there in April. We opted for the superior rooms which are well appointed. Everthing oozes quality from the entrance right up to the lobby and rooms. The bathroom and bathroom products are of high quality too.The staff at the reception matched the standard set by the hotel management and may have exceeded it. Every detail is dealt with promptly. there is a bowel of free fresh fruit in front of the reception desk and you get offered a free broly 'umbrella for the non-Brits' at the doorstep when it rains
The breakfast is delicious however it does gets busy very quickly and there is a queue. This is the only negative that I can mention. Around the corner is Old Brompton Road where you can find restaurants from every cuisine in the world. The location is ideal for those who wish to visit South Kensington such as the Royal Albert, V&A, Natural Museum, Harrods, etc
Overall cannot say a bad word except for the breakfast queue otherwise an Excellent Hotel. Highly Recommended!!
