Why We Love This Hotel

  • One of the most visited neighbourhoods in London, South Kensington has a choice of free museums, including the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Science Museum
  • The area also has two of London's eight Royal Parks: Kensington Gardens where you can visit Kensington Palace, the Serpentine Galleries and the Diana Memorial Gardens—Hyde Park's historic Speaker's Corner is nearby, too
  • The high street is lined with cafés, restaurants and shops, leading up to the landmark Harrods in Knightsbridge; a 20-minute walk from the hotel
  • The colonial-style Earl's Restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner, while the 24-hour Glamis Bar—with a cozy fireplace and original chandeliers—is a great spot for a cocktail, afternoon tea, or light bites

The Racial Overtones, i not only got from a staff, member. Restaurant waitress ( Maria ) plus the behaviour, by at least, 4, Eastern European guest, that felt they had the right to question me. And try and tell me what to do!!! I noticed i was the only person of Colour staying there!!! The first room, I, was given, on my Birthday!!!! was, AWFUL!!!!! I, complained, to, the, Manager Chris Dii. He moved me to a better room. Else i was prepared to leave!!! Yours Truthfully Disgruntled. Mr P. McIntosh. Ps: i wouldn't go back to that particular hotel, just because, the Eastern Europeans made me feel, so Uncomfortable, in the heart ♥ of London!!!!

Room was very small and furniture basic in poor condition. Hotel bar had very small range of drinks. Staff were very helpful and friendly though. Coffee was poor quality.

A very pleasant experience indeed. It was a short break to celebrate my wife's 67th birthday and the room had been decorated with balloons and a delicious chocolate cake was delivered soon after we had settled in. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and breakfast was superb. A lovely stay.

We were a group of 10 and needed somewhere close to the Albert Hall for a surprise birthday treat for 1 of our group. The location was absolutely perfect! We could walk easily to everywhere we wanted to go. Staff were lovely and nothing too much trouble. Breakfast also very good. Rooms a bit small and the whole hotel looked a little tired, but the price was good!
