Perfect location

I have stayed at this hotel many times. Mostly due to the perfect location, which gives you good access to most of London. But also because there is no fuss - staff is friendly, rooms are clean and breakfast is good. It is not a fancy hotel - but it serves it's purpose. If you chose the club deal, which you should, it really upgrades the experience.

Family trip

Hello. My son and me stayed 5 days at your hotel, and we are satisfied with the most. I'd like to comment on the breakfast that could include more vegetables. Unfortunately, I did not order breakfast at the time of booking, thus I got different options from the reception staff for each time I contacted them. I agreed on having my credit card open hence I should be accounted only the breakfasts I (we) had. Then to the point: My son was ill Thursday morning and stayed in bed. I was under the impression that I only should pay for one breakfast this very day. However, it is not a large sum of money, rather the principle. And again, the lack of correct info regarding breakfast payment. (my impression) Your staff acted professional and with a smile. We have had a splendid stay at your hotel, and are thinking Of comming back next year. Then, also with my two daugthers. Regards, Lars

An oasis in a desert

The hotel is situated a short distance from Kensington hight street but far enough away from the noise,hussle and bustle. From the outside it looks a bit grubby, but inside its plush and the staff are very friendly and professional. We were up graded to Club so I can only write from my experience of the room. It was immaculate, clean, warm very welcoming with all the extras. The bed was very comfortable with really nice bedding and there was an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe which I used and was most adequate. The bathroom was spotless and again more than adequate, we had free drinks vouchers for the bar but didn't use them, also included in the price was breakfast. We could have had room service but decided to use they're facilities. We went down at ten and there were queues but we were seated very quickly and again the staff were brilliant tending to our every need. There was a nice choice of fresh food to cater for all tastes, and it set us up for the day. The Kensington High street tube station is a two minute walk from the hotel and accesses all your needs, we drove via a trip to Gatwick and it was easy to find. I would highly recommend pre booking parking as its a premium in London and can be expensive. We used a college not far from there the parking space cost us 28 pounds for 24 hours via a parking app, but the hotel is just as reasonable.

Dissappointing

I am afraid I was expecting more from this hotel. The room smelt of smoke. Air fresheners were jammed in the air conditioning unit to try and mask the odor which was very unpleasant. The bathroom was tired and the towels were old and tatty not what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. There was an additional charge for Internet which in this day and age is just appalling and of course an extra £25 per day for parking. This is very much a tourist hotel. The location however was very good.

at home in London

Great location, close to shops, sights and transport. Asked for single beds that could be put together to make the bed larger as most beds double- paid extra for the privilege. Bed hard, pillows hard- asked for softer ones but no difference. Room spacious and great view. Glad for air conditioning as cannot open window. Biggest problem toilet didn't flush properly and had maintenance 4 times before made right!

Comfortable stay

We had a very comfortable stay. The rooms were clean and well kept although there was no directory of hotel services in one and the directory of hotel services in the other had some repeated pages. Breakfast was quite good although I would have liked a better selection of fresh fruit.
