We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Kensington area.”

Spotlessly clean throughout, we were welcomed by the very friendly staff. The room was larger then we expected and extremely well furnished with coffee machine and complimentary chocolates. Perfect location for our visits to the local museums with our Grandson and walks to Regents Park.
Our only criticism was &quot;breakfast&quot; which we did not book in advance but did so at check-in. Not great value for money based on the cost of breakfast and the service was less than adequate in terms of us not being informed as to which aspects were self-service and which we table-service, e.g., we had to approach someone to ask for coffee.

Classy but relaxed”

Lovely service from staff in a hotel that felt classy. Buffet breakfast very good in a relaxed setting.
If I am being picky I suggest change from anchor butter - it is a cheap brand. I also suggest taking plastic bag off the ceiling in the bedroom - covers something but very visible from bed!
