Rydges Kensington Hotel "offers Victorian elegance with modern comforts," according to Lonely Planet. Set in the heart of fashionable Kensington, the hotel is a great base for a London city break, and it has some of the capital's top attractions on its doorstep.

The shopping hot spots of High Street Kensington and Knightsbridge (where you'll find Harrods and Harvey Nichols) are 20 minutes away.

The hotel's Jam Cupboard is a New York-style bar that is described as "stylish" by Square Meal, and serves Anglo-European cuisine, wine and cocktails. The Polo Bar Kensington is a classic English-style pub lounge serving light snacks with big TV screens broadcasting sporting events.

Staff were friendly but we were asked to leave the bar at 10.40pm as told their licence didn't extend beyond 11.00pm. Breakfast ordering was chaotic and we were offered the wrong breakfast twice. Asked if they has soya milk and was told they did but had to ask 3 times and after checking they had run out.
