Very good 8.0 From 1,646 reviews

Good 6.0
Had to move rooms twice as there was issues with the first two (aircon not working, water in shower stopping and starting, safe not working, bed without topper...). One day the water to the whole building was shut off so had to go to the Thistle Hyde Park up the road for a shower. Eventually settled with a room with a double bed even though we had paid for a king. Staff were friendly enough though not particularly apologetic.

London stopover
Great location just off Kensington gardens. Easy to get to and hotel very accommodating about early check in. The room was clean and spacious by London standards and good value for the cost.

Cold room
Heating didn’t work and room was freezing. Small oil heater was delivered rather than having maintainence repair the in room heating. Other than that, the hote was good- quick check in and great location

Good 6.0
London Kensington holiday stay
Reception and lounge and dining areas well presented. Room was clean and comfortable although room was small in comparison to photos. Difficult to fit in 2 mid to large suitcases. Bathroom was clean but somewhat small. Located close to hyde park and bus & rail transport and attractions ( hotel is located above petrol station). Was pleasant place to stay although maybe not 4 star ( maybe 3 to 3.5 star rating may be better)

Exceptional 10.0
Great location, lovely room
Helpful staff and a great location. The lift is very small though. Glasses, cups and spoons were left rather than replaced but it was fixed when I asked about it. Overall quite impressed
Lachlan, au6 night trip
Good 6.0
Very slow check in as only one person at the desk. The room despite being a non smoking room smelt of cigarettes and the cleaning of the room was poor.
Tracey, au3 night romance trip

Great location and service
Great location and a good service ethic but a few little niggles were annoying. I would stay there again so that is a positive

Ok
The rooms were nice. The annoying part was the cleaning staff: who ignored our do not disturb sign on the first day and on the second came into clean the room at 8:15 in the morning while we were still in bed.
Lindsay, au2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Definitely not a 4 star Hotel!
The location is great however the hotel is directly above a petro/fuel station which took away the ambience of the hotel. The parkview from the breakfast room is obstructed by frosted class and overall the hotel is really only a basic 2-3 star hotel. The standard rooms are basic and small and the furniture is very outdated and worn. The mattress was lumpy and hard...I'm not sure if England has a law over hotel mattresses being renewed every couple of years like other countries due to hygiene reason but they should...this mattress felt as if it had not been replaced for 20 years. The added price for a basic buffet breakfast was approx. $25 AUD each and really was not worth it, except for the convenience. The Reception practice seems to mirror McDonald's upsizing at the counter which definitely cheapened the experience and made me question the concept of service. After staying in many hotels whilst abroad this was by far the most disappointing and the most expensive and definitely the least appealing.
