I booked on the internet and received a large discount, which made my stay good value instead of bad value. The breakfast and service were both good and the location was good if you want to be in Kensington, close to museums etc. The tv was large, but the rented films mentioned in the room guide were not available.

The room on ther Mezzanine floor was small and terribly disappointing for a so-called 4 star hotel, with an uncomfortable single bed, small thin foam duvet and foam pillows when I would have expected down or at least feather and down fillings, tired décor, horrible fake paintings and modifications for a disabled person, even though I am not disabled.

The staff at reception were extremely friendly, helpful and competent.

The walls were extremely thin in the rooms, therefore we could hear everything going on in the next room, literally everything. We gave our luggage to the staff to find both bags had been entered when we retrieved them.

I travelled with my daughter. This is the second visit but most likely the last. I booked a standard room on a room only basis knowing we would spend very little time in the room and as we knew the area had somewhere in mind for breakfast. We arrived early at the hotel and knowing the room would not be ready asked if we could leave our bags and check-in later. We were told that we could upgrade to a superior room with breakfast for £15.00 each and that the room would be available immediately. I agreed to this. On entering the superior room I found it to be no different to the standard room we had stayed in on a previous occasion and when I asked at the reception was told that they were in fact the same apart from more newly decorated and on a higher floor. I was extremely disappointed that I had paid £15.00 each basically for breakfast when had I chose breakfast at the time of booking the hotel I would have paid £14.00 each because the room was definitely not superior. I told the receptionist that the difference in a standard room and a superior room (or not) should be made clear.

The windows in the room were locked. The air in the room comes only from air-condition. It was supposed the room to be non-smoking, but it smelt of cigarettes.
