Check in was quick and the staff are extremely pleasant.
Our room was very nice, it was a bit small, however it had a raised floor section with a small office set up and two armchairs. The bed was on the lower section. It gave the feeling that you had 2 small rooms. Usual things in the room, Flat Screen TV, Wi-Fi, Fridge, Hairdryer, Toilettres, Mini Bar, Snacks(not free), tea & coffee, full length mirror. One thing missing was an ironing board & iron. I've notice that the more we pay for hotel rooms, the less chance of finding one. It would be nice when you unpack all your wrinkled clothes that you can give them a quick iron instead of having to pay someone to do it.
The room came with a view of Kensington High street which was a bit disappointing, I would have prefered looking over the park but I expect that's a lot more expensive. If you have a lower floor at the front of the hotel you will here some street noise, and there is a fire station just around the corner so expect to be disturbed at some point if your staying for a long time.
The hotel does have its own restaurants but we were only staying bed & breakfast so didn't try them. Why in London would you want to eat in a hotel anyway?
Breakfast is buffet style. Continental breakfast was very nice. Good selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and meats. Toast and coffee you order from the table. We did have one small problem with it, it didn't seem very well thought out. Two tier round table set in the middle of the dining area. Little children not being able to reach the second tier and making a mess while trying to grab things. Hot breakfast looked nice, usual things, eggs, sausage, bacon, beans and an omelette bar.
Hotel is in a fantastic location for shops and restaurants and has great transportation links close by including buses and tubes. Car park under hotel if needed. Everything is within walking distance.
