I have given this 4 stars but it didn't quite get to very good , good yes but no more . The room was quite small but fine for a few days the bed was comfy and it was nice and quiet considering we were in the front and overlooking the street , I slept quite well .The bathroom is tiny mind nice shower good shelf space but a bit difficult to move round in. The staff I came across were excellent , really helpful and friendly and made sure we had a taxi booked and ready for us to leave . Personally I can't fault them. Breakfast , we had the full breakfast inc the English , choice wasn't bad but have to say the hot food could have been hotter , some parts of it were luke warm which was a bit disappointing the coffee was very nice mind . NIce lobby and public areas terrace outside ok bit small maybe but then it is London .The area was quiet and safe and the hotel is about 7/8 mins form 2 tube stations so fairly convenient .Would I stay again , I'm not sure if the deal was right I'd think about it .
Great location in the far end of Hyde park, super helpful attentive staff some shopping a block away and lots of restaurants. Walking distance to the hop on hop off bus stop which was very handy. Neat clean and big rooms good breakfast too
Stayed here for 3 days in a suite. Pros: The outside and lobby of the hotel was nice. Breakfast is great - staff are very helpful. Hats off to BulBul and tushar (i think that was his name) - They were so kind. They even helped us send BF up to our room for our boys who were still sleeping & suffering from jet lag. Location is good - next to Kensington Gardens and 5 min walk to the Tube. Cons: Check-in staff are poor and unhelpful. Our room had 3 TVs - however, during our entire stay only 1 TV was ever working properly. We did ask for staff to take a look - but the other 2 TVs were not fixed. No paper and pencil in the room - found this very odd considering this is a suite.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 1 week at the beginning of July. Initially we found the hotel quite good except for the air conditioning being a bit temperamental - it was around 30 degrees in London that whole week. However on our third day there while I was showering I discovered a cockroach on the wall of the bathroom. As someone who can't even stand a spider in the bath you can imagine my panic. My husband killed the cockroach and took it to reception to show them. The girls on reception immediately offered us a new room which we declined as we did not want the upheaval of packing again. They said they would get the manager to speak to us. We were not contacted at all by the manager but the next day we came back to our room to discover a bottle of wine to apologise for the "unpleasant incident". As neither myself nor my husband drink wine this did not exactly calm us down. In fact as the air conditioning had again broken down we were forced to move room anyway. At this point we were very angry and asked to speak to the manager. We were told to ask for him the following day. We did this the following morning and after being kept waiting for 45 minutes the most arrogant unpleasant man appeared to speak to us. He was initially apologetic but very quickly became irate when we indicated that we were looking for more than a bottle of wine as compensation for the problems we had encountered. He eventually gave us £42 in compensation from a hotel bill of almost £1500 and stormed off after throwing our registration form at the receptionist. The hotel itself was fine but it is never acceptable to have a cockroach in your room, especially in a supposedly 4 star hotel and this really put a damper on our holiday. The attitude of the manager however was even more upsetting. How this person could be responsible for customer service is beyond me. If you visit this hotel better pray you don't meet him!!!
Stayed at the Blakemore for 4 nights and were upgraded to a 'Junior Suite'! The room was adequate but quite dark. No pad or pencil in sight. It really was the bare minimum by world standards. The bed was very comfortable. We arrived after a 14 hour flight and there is absolutely NO assistance with baggage. They also take an additional 120 UK pounds in case you have a drink or meal or laundry and refund you the unspent money as you book out. Every day we had to call reception to ask housekeeping to have our room made up when it wasn't done by about 2pm. We'll Miss Know-it-All on Sunday when I rang to advise that we were going out for Brunch and would like our room made up told me curtly to turn on the green light and housekeeping would attend our room. Our room was between floors and housekeeping were unlikely to cruise by. I explained that our 'green light' was broken and requested that she ring housekeeping. We returned about 1pm and you guessed it - the room hadn't been made up. My husband contacted the same arrogant unhelpful woman on reception who said just put the green light on! He had polite words but housekeeping didn't turn up until around 3.15! Miss Know-it-All should exit the building or be taught service and professionalism. The male concierge watched us as we struggled to the taxi and left the building - NEVER to return. The only redeeming thing was the charming helpful woman in the bar - thank you for your helpfulness and service. Think twice before staying here - there are so many other choices nearby.
I was underwhelmed by this hotel. Room is 3 stars at best. The hotel is just not welcoming. You feel as if you are in an apartment complex, not in an hotel arriving for a vacation. The 4 star rating on TA is wrong for this one!
This hotel is a gem! My husband and I stayed here for the 2nd time and were excellent treated by the very helpful, service-minded and nice staff - from being greeted with a warm smile in the morning in the breakfast room all thru' the day 'til the final night cap at the bar. Reception, concierge, terrace-dining-bar personnel go out of their way to make you feel welcome and taken care of. The food is excellent and fresh; the cocktails are innovative with a contemporary twist and the beds are made for nothing but sweet dreams and a good rest. It's spotless clean! The hotel is situated in a quiet, calm street and yet only 2 mins from Hyde Park, buses, underground. We were fortunate to have sunshine throughout our stay, with the exception of one day of rain. However, the sunny staff made us forget the outside weather and kept the sun shining indoors instead. Of course we will be back!! And to all that have yet this hotel to experience - don't hesitate! Go for it! Maggie & Thomas
Writing my review from the biggest comfiest bed ive ever slept in. Lovely hotel in a great location just a short walk from hyde park and queensway tube station. Breakfast was lovely. Reception looks very smart. Junior suite room was really lovely with great facilities. Would stay here again
I would stay here again - it was a lovely place to stay and visit Hyde park during the summer (gardens are lovely at that time of year). It also felt like a very safe area to be walking around later at night and the buffet breakfast was very good.
We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. It was a great hotel, very clean, all the staff were very friendly, very convenient to tube and train station to Heathrow. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel and would recommend it highly. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant one evening and it was delicious. Compliments to the chef. The breakfast was delicious and the hostess offered a take away breakfast as we left before the buffet opened. How kind. Again would highly recommend this hotel.
