    5/5 Excellent

    Centrally located, spacious rooms, and a lovely zpot for breakfast or coctails. Located across the road from Kensington Gardens, and there's one of the Hop On, Hop Off buses that stop just there at the corner. This is our second time in the hotel, and would definitely recommend.

    The first room we had was run down and the carpeting in the room was filthy. There were no bathroom doors. The room also had no heat and it was very chilly. We asked for another room and the carpeting was better but still a bit run down for the money spent.

    5/5 Excellent

    Convenient location. Loved that they arranged a car service to the airport so we could avoid the very high prices of a regular taxi. Didn't like the cramp lifts,

    4/5 Good

    The location was great although the front of the property is a petrol station. The room was so small there was nowhere to open suitcases besides putting them on the bed and there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room.
