Great location.
Great location for Royal Albert Hall, Hyde park, and Kensington area. The hotel is very nicely presented. The downside for us was the small room.

Refurbishment continues at a good pace. My room was freshly done, quite lovely, and remarkably spacious. Staff was on hand to check me in, even long before normal check-in hours, and did not charge me a premium for early check-in (about 2 hours early). They had a little difficulty finding my prepayment record, but gamely continued searching the system until they found it. The location is absolutely stunning, half a block from Kensington Gardens and only a five-minute walk to the restaurants and shops on Kensington High Street. This hotel is an excellent quality for the price, and I will certainly stay here again.

Staff is super nice & helpful. The breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of buffet style offerings. Older building could hear the people upstairs walking around all night. Thankfully they were kind enough to move me to a quieter room. Carpets are worn in the room. Perfect location near Kensington Palace.

Enjoyable stay
Great location near Kensington Palace. Nice old house. Pleasant personnel. Good (not amazing) breakfast. Everything in good/great condition except that the carpet in our bedroom needed to be replaced (old and dirty). Small room (par for the course).
Stayed 8 nights in Feb 2020
