I stayed here for 3 nights in October for a business trip.
The hotel is close to Kensington High Street tube station, but this isn't exactly an easy location to get to & from around London. Getting a taxi from the hotel was impossible as it is off the main street, and the concierge were most unhelpful.
The reception/bar/restaurant areas were lovely and have clearly had a lot spent on them, but the rooms are a different story altogether. Step out of the lift bound for your room, and you could be in a different hotel entirely. Mine was a small, dated room, but had everything I required for a busy 3 days in the city.
I ordered room service and this was prompt, the food was hot & overall not too expensive.
Overall - my experience of this hotel was average, and and the title suggest non-offensive. Multiple stop tube trips got very old very quickly, but I knew the location when i booked!
