Glamorous HotelPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Blakes is one of the most discreet, romantic hotels I have stayed in. We were in the Josephine Suite and it really was fit for royalty. The room was spacious with five opening windows, it had a big bathroom and a separate dressing room. The staff are warm and welcoming and there are many good restaurants a five minute walk away, though we weren't too inclined to levce the room.

Old Hollywood GlamourPosted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Blakes is a truly magical yet discreet hotel where you really feel you have been transported to another world. Our room, the Josephine suite made me feel like a film star. Not only was it glamourous it was spacious, with five opening windows, a large bathroom and a separate dressing room. It was spotlessly clean and the mini was overflowing. The staff could not have been more helpful and I would move in tomorrow if I could.

Very small dark bedroomPosted Jun 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our stay was disappointing. Service at breakfast was non-existent, not because the restaurant was busy. Because of this both my husband and I chose to eat breakfast at other hotels on our second day. The service charge for the breakfast was removed from my bill at my request. The hotel is slightly run down and our bedroom was very small and dark.

Nice hotel but Luxury room is not all that luxurioPosted Apr 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a nicely appointed hotel. It has charm and class. We booked the Luxury Double expecting something quite special, especially if you look at the pictures of the rooms. However, the Luxury Double is not all that impressive. It is a small room. It's nicely decorated with a modern, stylish bathroom, and B&O TV set. You would expect more complimentary items like water and tea & coffee in the room - but these were non existent and mini-bar prices were typically hiked. We ate in the restaurant which has good reviews and they are very proud of their chef. The food was nice but the portions were a bit small (a bit nouveau cuisine from the 80s) and the bill was very high. The wine menu is expensive with only a few bottles as low as £40.

Great little spotPosted Apr 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
I like my small hotels and Blake's didn't disappoint. The bat downstairs is a great place to meet up with friends and the restaurant was also excellent. If you're looking for a low key place to stay with just enough amenities this is it.

had better days!Posted Oct 1, 2012 on Hotels.com
Great hotel but needs some work, rooms are nice but a few things are starting to fall apart. Internet was not existing and as a business travelef that was a challenge. The tried to fix it, but didn't really work.

Tired outPosted Jul 31, 2012
Pros: Helpful staff and comfortable beds
Cons: tired out decorations and accessories
Location: 10 minute walk to nearest tube station but set in a superb area of Kensington with restaurants nearby
The hotel has not been re decorated for many years and looks tired. An example of this in our room was the ceiling had two historic stains on from leaks from the room above, the curtains were torn and threadbare and the downlight fittings were loose and hanging from the ceiling fitting. We paid an awefull lot of money to stay here and will not be returning. The owner needs to reinvest in her property soon before her excellent polite and caring staff leave the sinking ship.Until then guys, keep patching it up and keep smiling.
