Great hotel

Great hotel, nice employees and perfect location. We stayed in a room on the 7th floor with a great view over Kensington Gardens. Hotel is close to central line underground that gets you everywhere :-) We will stay there again.

Very convienent and friendly hotel to stay in London!

Very friendly staff beginning at the front desk. Room a bit small but very comfortable and well kept.- Could use an in room coffee maker. Rooms with a park view are just greatA good breakfast is offered to get your day going. Whether you want to eat light or full English the food and service is good.

Small room, but clean

It was a good location, close to the bus stop. Room was small, but I believe that's common in this area. We had a light out in our closet and it was fixed immediately. Front staff should have been more knowledgeable about tour routes, but when we inquired on places to have dinner they were spot on with recommendations and loved their suggestions. Breakfast was nice, but the same selections every day. It would have been nice to have some variety. There was a group of College students on Holiday while we were there and the breakfast area was crowded and they ran out of butter (also no butter next day when no crowd), so I think that should have been better coordinated, since they knew a large group was going to be there

Pleasant Stay

Nice hotel and the restaurant staff was very pleasant. However, the lobby staff was not able to answer basic questions about our tour pick up location or even its whereabouts. Sadly, this caused us to miss one day of a two day tour.
