The Portobello Hotel is a fantastic "find" in an exclusive neighborhood within Nottinghill. The well-appointed and private rooms, including a lovely parlour where breakfast is served, made it feel like we were staying in a private home. We enjoyed an incredibly quiet room on the top floor overlooking the garden, with a separate seating area and nice size bath with proper tub. But the best part of our stay was the staff. A tray of french pressed coffee and warm milk was delivered within minutes of our order, and "housekeeping" was by within 2 minutes of our asking for instructions for the in-room coffee maker. Due to our early arrival, the front desk was happy to store our bags and deliver them to the room while we enjoyed springtime in London. And it was so quiet, we had a hard time believing any other guests were there. Overall, a lovely, relaxing experience in an otherwise hectic city.

Room tip: Top floor was great

This is a very nice hotel: built up in two real British houses for the upper class, nice rooms, a very kind staff, a 'pleasant breakfast' as another reviewer wrote, and beautifully located in Notting Hill. A grey ans classic Bentley was parked opposite the hotel and that is a good metaphor for this hotel.

Room tip: we liked room 32, we saw some rooms at the back side and it looked as if these were pleasant.

Dear Gjveerman,

Many thanks for your wonderful comments regarding your stay with us.
Thank you for your kind words about my team and their kindness.
We are indeed like that Bentley outside; old, with big history, but classy and quirky at the same time.

What a lovely hotel, interesting decor and furnishings, very comfortable beds, and a pleasant breakfast. Situated in a very interesting and comfortable part of the capital. All very good, only let down by some dilatory staff.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, beautiful building with period furniture and a lovely collection of ornate teaspoons. Warm welcome by the receptionist Diane who showed us around, particularly liked the honesty bar in the sitting room. Excellent WiFi. If you want any exercise just climb the stairs to the fourth floor, we stayed in room 45 lovely comfortable bed had a feather topper. Conteninental breakfast was good excellent pastries. Nice touch was coming back to our room in the evening and finding a warm flask of I think it was Ovaltine, lovely.

We picked the hotel as it is within walking distance of the distillery. It is certainly a curious place to stay, really lovely staff and a fantastic room but definitely quirky. Would recommend it for a couple, probably not for families though
