Stayed here for just the one night whilst on a weekend getaway. Beautiful hotel in Kensington, with a slightly old fashioned but beautiful interior. Very smooth check in and check out. Massive bedroom for just 2 of us, ended up with 3 beds, but didn't mind. Very clean and stylish with all the amenities. Friendly staff and good value for money. Nice and quiet location, but very close to the underground which meant running in and out of the city was very easy. Don't have anything bad to say, it was the smoothest visit to a hotel I've ever had. Will definitely use this place again.
This is a good hotel in a very central area of of London. Close to Gloucester road and South Kensignton and a short walk to High Street Ken. The hotel is nice. It could do with a face lift though. There's one small lift that takes you to the rooms so as you can imagin it gets very busy in the morning. The rooms are small but nice and clean. The bathroom is also small but fit for purpose. There's a clothes press in the room and a small hairdryer. Overall the rooms are very good although small. My room didn't have a fridge. So better check with the hotel for a room with fridge if you require one before booking. The main lobby is small but there's a cosy lounge and bar that you could meet friends or watch football while enjoying few drinks. I like it. The breakfast area gets a bit busy. But that's ok. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Overall I like the hotel and I would stay there again as the rates were great for that area of London. Hope this helps
Visited this awful hotel July 2015 and unbelievably was recommended by Wimbledon as a place to stay for the tennis championship. We ended up checking in late after a long drive from Devon. Told the lift was not working but had no help from the workers at reception to get heavy bags up the old stairs. One worker busy watching TV in the lounge. The worst 4* room I’ve ever stayed in. Cramp room. Awful twin bed. Described as a cupboard at best. No A/C on the hottest day of the year around 38 degrees? Substandard desk fan blowing hot air. Didn’t even manage to sleep it was that hot. We were scheduled to stay another day but we cancelled and stayed on the other side of London at a cheaper price with much better facilities. Wrote a letter to the mangers at the time. Got a discount at one of their other hotels in st Paul’s - should have been complimentary after this poor experience. From other reviews it seems like they’ve stopped caring..... Avoid (and it’s not even cheap!)
Have stayed here several times, this time hotel was remodeled and looked smashing. Had a great view, comfortable beds and staff could not have been more helpful. So glad we stayed there again. So helpful getting taxis, directions to sites, ordered tickets for us, whatever we needed they took care of.
Paid £175 for a superior room per night no breakfast, room was only the width of the double bed, no bath, no iron, hotel in general was very run down, change room to one with a bath and the entrance to the bath was over the toilet
First time in London and enjoyed our week here. Other reviewers have commented on the excellent access to Gloucester Road Station, pubs, restaurants; " hop on hop off" bus station also close by. Our lower ground floor room was very quiet but the outlook from the windows unimpressive. Our cheerful housekeeping staff kept the room clean and comfortable. Usual inclusions such as TV, mini fridge etc. Breakfasts were good and the waitresses efficient and polite - a few more smiles needed though. Overall a very good stay.
this was a wonderful hotel for our family; myself, my husband and our two daughters - in their twenties. we booked the quadruple room which worked well for us. loved enjoying a cocktail in the lounge, beautifully decorated. location was excellent, and even with windows open at night...no noise -- lovely. staff was friendly and very helpful. we would stay again in the future.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this beautiful building with many original period features. All members of staff were helpful, polite and friendly. Our surroundings were clean and well looked after. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable. We also had a large bathroom. The only downside there was not having a plug for the plug hole. I am confident this would have been addressed if we had mentioned it at the time. However, for quickness a shower cap was screwed up and placed in the plughole which sufficed. We ordered afternoon tea and cake which was delicious and beautifully presented. The cooked breakfast was piping hot and delicious. This was prepared to order and brought by a waitress. It was well worth the small additional charge. For the included in the price of our stay continental breakfast, there were good options available. The location of the hotel was ideal for many London attractions. We visited the Royal Albert Hall and this is about a 10 to 15 minute walk away. Tube stations are around a 5 to 10 minute walk away. Gloucester Road being about five minutes and ideal for our other plans throughout our stay. Also within a 10 minute walk are a variety of restaurants and cafes. We look forward to our next London trip and staying at this hotel.
I just got back from a 4 night stay with a friend. The hotel is clean and has all the essentials. The location and price were why we chose it, and we felt that you get what you pay for. We stayed in a double room on the first floor. The room was tiny, we barely had any space to move or fit a suitcase, but that was ok as we were planning on being out most of the day. The single beds were rock hard, not much better than sleeping on a wooden plank, and the pillows were thin. I woke up with excruciating neck pain every morning and had to take painkillers just to make it down for breakfast, not ideal when on holidays! I asked for a mattress topper and extra pillows but they were not much better. But the worst was the lack of soundproofing between the rooms and hallway, the walls were paper thin, you could hear every word of a conversation in the room next door. The first night there was a party next door so we finally had to complain to reception at midnight and they offered to switch us to the room next to the one we were in, so we finally got some sleep that night. The next 3 nights we had a baby constantly crying on one side and guys coming and going late at night and slamming doors on the other side. We were both woken up multiple times. They really need to offer softer mattresses and ear plugs for guests who need it. Next time I will pay more for another hotel to ensure a good nights sleep.
Stayed here recently for 3 nights. This hotel is in an excellent location in Kensington. It’s less than 5 minutes walk from Gloucester Road Underground station. As this station is on the Piccadilly line you can get to many of the major sights (Leicester Square, Covent Garden, British Museum) without having to change tube lines. The hotel is also only five minutes walk from the Kensington museums, so you can easily visit the natural history, science and V&A museums. The hotel itself is nice enough, set in a Victorian building. The rooms are mice and clean, with comfortable beds. One drawback was no air conditioning, but we were provided with a fan and that sorted the heat out. The tv would only show bbc one, and switched itself off if you put any other channels on. The breakfast was nice, with a selection of continental and full English available. All the staff were pleasant and friendly.
