Our rooms reflect the homely experience we strive to provide for our guests. We believe it is important, not only for you to feel welcome and comfortable, but to be able to unwind and truly feel at home when staying with us. Our cosy rooms ensure you have everything you need for a pleasant and satisfying stay. This includes:
We also offer an ironing room for guests who need to look extra sharp for important events or meetings.
We're committed to ensuring our rooms are cleaned to the highest standards and that's why we work with external Health & Safety consultants Saeker who have rated our cleaning standards as five star. To give you peace of mind when you stay with us we've also introduced additional measures such as adding a safety seal to rooms post-cleaning and allowing 72 hours between each room use. For more information about our commitment to cleanliness, visit the Safety and Well-being page.
Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Our buffet breakfast is currently unavailable but we will be offering a Brekkie Bag that will be available to order for £5 at reception. The Brekkie Bag will include a yoghurt pot, banana, croissant and orange juice carton. It also includes tea or coffee that will be made to order and collected at the breakfast bar.
The Brekkie Bag will be available for collection at the breakfast bar from 06:30 to 10:30 Monday to Friday and 07:00 to 11:00 on weekends and bank holidays.
There are also a range of grab-and-go snacks and hot drink selections on offer from the hotel lobby throughout the day (and night), just pop down to reception if you're feeling peckish or fancy a cuppa.
Kensington is synonymous with fashion. The famous High Street Kensington provides a stylish haven for shoppers thanks to the number of specialist and designer shops in the area, as well as several excellent pubs and restaurants in the area. Nearby, is also Notting Hill, which is famous for its Portobello Road Market, the world’s largest antiques market, and the annual Notting Hill Carnival.
Being home to some of the best Museums in all of London, with free entry for the famous Natural History Museum, Science Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington is also a celebration of science, nature and design, all in one place. For those seeking more green space, the nearby Hyde Park is the largest royal park in London, with an array of outdoor activities, while visitors of Kensington gardens can get their fix of contemporary art and architecture. Holland park also contains the beautiful Kyoto garden; a Japanese garden donated by the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce in 1991.
For events, the nearby Kensington Olympia hosts numerous conferences and events throughout the year and, of course, there’s the famous Royal Albert Hall.

Shopping & Markets
Kensington High Street is by far the best place for shopping and eateries, it's also a short 11-minute walk from our hotel. Stretching from Hammersmith right through to Kensington Gardens, you'll find lovely cafes, restaurants as well as big retail brands. There are many local markets too, these include South Kensington Markets and if you don't mind catching the tube, Notting Hill and Shepherd's Bush Markets are well worth the visit as well.
• London's best museums are a short tube or bus ride from our hotel, these include Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, The Science Museum and the Clockmaker's Museum. Most of them are free too!
• Interested in all things green? Lucky for you Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are both a short tube ride from our hotel. Relax and unwind in these beautiful open spaces. Or check out Holland Park, less than 10 minutes from our hotel.
• If you're a royal fan, Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace aren't too far either. You might just catch a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who reside in Kensington Palace or better yet the Queen. (no promises though)
