A well located, friendly hotel close to transport. Bathroom was an awkward shape with no place to put personal items.

Welcome to Holiday Inn 'Shoe Box'
The tiniest of rooms, even taking into account this is London. Shoebox is being too kind. Very clean room, with hard to use internet. Had to wait 2 hours for my room. Good location near shops and tube. Gym and pool cost extra. Pool is 10 GBP to use. I shook my head when it was explained to me that even though the hotel pool is the largest in Kensington, as a guest I still had to pay to use it! This seems to be the 'go to' hotel for international airlines flight crew so I'm sure the cramped rooms are no problem for them.

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.

Perfect! As usual.
Came to London to see Bryan Ferry at The Albert Hall. Booked into the Holiday Inn in Wrights Lane Kensington a couple of minutes from the Station. As it is a pleasent stroll to the venue with great local pubs and restuarants nearby. We stayed in a standard room, great value as always clean and tidy with a comfortable bed. Perfect! Wish that we had stayed for longer!

Overnight stay in London
Everyone at the hotel was exceptionally helpful and courteous - from the front door to the front desk as well as the restaurant stuff and the baggage clerks. Breakfast was delicious and abundant with choices. This hotel is a very short walk from the High Street Kensington tube station making it very convenient for accessing the city as a whole.

Good location for plenty of walking.
We wanted to stay in Kensington High Street to be fairly flexible on where we could walk to. Location was ideal. Hotel looked really lovely inside. Our room was quite small and the mattress on one side (it was a large bed with separate mattresses) had a dip at the joining side, so quite often I found I'd fallen into this which really didn't help my back.

Adequate. Off by itself. Rooms extremely small. Clean.
