    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

    Stephanie P
    Thank you for your quick response Neil. I am also looking for some information regarding the layout of your executive suite. I see that it has the ability to accommodate four people, as well as two bathrooms. Is it two double beds, or one double bed and a sofa bed? Is there a separate bedroom, or bedrooms? Also does it have two full bathrooms? I'm trying to decide which would best accommodate myself, my two children and my mother. Any advice on having two double club rooms versus one executive suite would be appreciated.

    Like other reviewers I think you should contact the hotel and ask to have flowers, champagne, chocolates whatever your choice is to be placed in the room. Bearing in mind they will probably charge for this service.
