3 night stay Bank Holiday weekend

An enjoyable stay at this hotel - good value for money. Quick check-in and staff very polite. Unfortunately we found the restaurant service unfavourable. We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant on our first evening and a waiter took our order but didn't seem to understand what we were wanting. He asked my husband to confirm what we wanted by pointing at our choice from the menu. We both ordered rib eye steak and he returned 5 minutes later with two side plates saying "this is for you to share your meal" - we re-confirmed our order by saying that we had ordered two steak meals and he said "ok". A different waiter delivered one meal to our table a while later looking confused as to why we had only ordered one meal - we said that we had ordered two meals, he apologised and came back a while later with the two meals that we had ordered. Breakfast on Bank Holiday Monday was no better - it was obviously busy but glasses at the juice dispensers ran out, cereal bowls ran out and my husband had to join a queue to wait for plates for the hot breakfast. I'm guessing that the restaurant was understaffed on this bank holiday weekend and although we were disappointed with the service, the food was very good. We decided to play it safe and for the next two days eat breakfast at the 'Muffin Man' just a two minute walk from the hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed and they were quick to serve us. We also had our subsequent evening meals at two different restaurants just off Kensington High Street and enjoyed both - a good choice of local eateries.

Great location and lovely breakfast

Only stayed here for one night. A mix up about breakfast was easily sorted out at reception. The staff at breakfast were very attentive and friendly. Great choice of food and what I had was very tasty (fruit/yoghurt, fried b'fast and mini pastries). I would have preferred a pot of tea but waiters came round frequently to tip up my cup. Bedrooms a bit dated and in need of upgrade but otherwise clean and of a decent size. Really great location, minutes away from High Street Kensington. Would come back here again

Business Trip

I regularly stay here as it is ideally placed for work, restaurants, tube and mainline rail. Some of the rooms were looking a bit tired last year, but there is constant work going on and it has improved again. The gym is small, but has some new machines in it which were sorely needed. Breakfast is always great and the food in the bar is fine if you don't wish to venture further afield. The staff throughout are very helpful and professional.
