Traditional British elegance at a great price.
Rooms were much nicer than photos showed—a sense of old British elegance we hoped for but did not expect would exceed our expectations. Even the breakfast was excellent in every way. Service was perfect. Hallways were even very nice. We had 2 rooms, one with the older British style on ground floor and one updated room on floor 4. The updated room was sunny, tastefully done without being stark, and the inlaid wood on doors and closets showed it’s quality. Both rooms had different styles but well done. The only possible recommendation I would have is that the seating lobby area does not quite match the warmth and stateliness of the rest for its price point, although the fresh hyacinth smelled wonderful. We loved the area and walk along Kensington Park to the hotel—beautiful area.

Lucky turn of events
Very affordable, very convenient location (steps from the bus stop!) Our original hotel did not have functioning wifi and we ended up on their doorstep. It was a lucky turn of events as this hotel is much nicer, cleaner and actually cost less! Good restaurant and just a short, lovely walk to Kensington Palace!

Fair 4.0
The room was barley the size to fit one person. No room in bathroom for a tube of toothpaste to sit next to sink. Overall this was a disappointment especially since we have stayed at this hotel 3 times before.

Information is valuable. The room I paid for was the family suite the room I got was the twin room. Don’t look at the pictures they are deceiving. Both the twin room and family suite have the same size beds. There wasn’t room to put even the smallest of tables. Hotel was clean and front desk people were nice. Maid service was poor. However, ideal location. Next to Hyde park, underground station, and great restaurants.
