Very good stay, with great location and quality accommodation.

Only ok
The rooms are very small, at one point in our room there was only about 10cm between the corner of the bed and the wall of the room, it was very tight getting around the room. On one of the days we had been shopping and bought sandwiches back for lunch to eat in the room, the room was still being serviced so we tried to eat them in the lobby and were told by a staff member that we could not eat there even though we explained why we couldn't eat in our room.

Good for a night but no longer
Actually, I booked this hotel in error, I was suppose to book the Forum, but anyway, here I was. Hotel was quite large, which is what I like, with plenty of room in the lobby to sit and have a Starbucks. The rooms were very small, luckily I was on my own as it was way to small for 2. No fridges in the rooms. No place to put your clothes so that needed to stay in my luggage as I could only hang a limited number of items but no drawers for the other things. No bench space for stuff, not even in the bathroom. The so called desk was a bit of wood on wheels, so do my university assignment was difficult. No clothes hanger for my washed items. The toiletries they supplied stank like old cigars which made the whole room smell. That said, the room was kept clean and tidy and was very quiet. I was on the top floor, great, no, not so great because 50% of the lifts were out of action. The buffet breakfast was very nice, but they don't have an omelette station like the other Holiday Inns in the area have. The hotel has a pool... but it costs 10 pounds to use it, but if you want a relaxing swim after work think again, they have children swimming lessons until 7pm. Included in the overpriced pool fee is the use of the spa and sauna, just one catch, the spa doesn't work either!! What a joke. So I stayed at the hotel for a week and couldn't have a quick dip unless it was before work or after dinner. Ridiculous!! Basically, I would only recommend the stay for one night only.

Fairly basic for the cost- as to be expected in Kensington. But clean comfortable room with modern bathroom. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Reliable hotel with all mod cons
The stay was fine. The hotel was fine. Unfortunately, it was not within walking distance of my favourite haunts or any major British architectural or cultural icons... But I knew where I had elected to stay when I put safety first.
