Having already written a review on The Kensington Hotel, I thought it would be good to update TripAdvisor with my latest experience.
Yes, it's still five star. Yes, the service is still first class. Yes, the rooms are still immaculately clean and superbly finished. Yes, the hotel still looks fantastic. Yes, it's probably my favourite hotel.
Unfortunately on this occasion we could only book the one night and sadly spent the other two elsewhere. But upon check-in in we were informed the rooms weren't ready yet. They checked us in, handed us the keys, took our bags and sent us to the bar. We must have ordered around four cocktails and were then told the room was ready and "sorry for your wait, the drinks are complimentary".
That sums up the Kensington. A truly great hotel.
