Reviewed 14 April 2015

Location and service makes this hotel an excellent choice. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff is welcoming and friendly. Breakfast is very good! Glouchester Road tube station is just around the corner and it takes less than 10 minutes to walk to Kensington Gardens or the museums.

Long heavy drapes kept the noise out, a wonderful hotel. Stayed 3 nights, the restaurant was excellent, and the bar was good. Breakfast was fast and efficient. it is an older hotel but clean and well kept. Staff was gracious and helpful.

Friendly and competent staff, quiet, good location, tasty breakfast. I find strange though that tripadvisor wants at least two hundred characters from me, so I try to write something in order to increase the entropy of my review.

Tiny room, terribly offhand service, maze of corridors to get through with carpet and luggage (doesn't work); no offer to take luggage! Loved the bunny rabbit on the mantel and posh decor but bathroom layout was abyssmal (knees would touch the sink when on the toilet...literally, and water pooled out of the bathroom onto the carpet every time you have...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
