Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Elegant yet hip and fun’, this ‘conveniently located’ hotel (part of the Doyle Collection) is minutes from the museums of South Kensington. The staff make it a place to return to, a Guide reader says in 2017: ‘they’re so pleasant, helpful and accommodating.’ ‘Well-equipped bedrooms’ in the graciously decorated Victorian town house are ‘clean and cosy’. They vary in size, but even the smallest has a marble bathroom with underfloor heating, aromatherapy-based bath products and a capsule coffee machine. The ‘uncluttered drawing rooms’ are an ideal place for afternoon tea (gluten-free options available), custom smoothies and juices. In the ‘lovely restaurant’ or the wood-panelled bar, chef Steve Gibbs’s menu includes seasonal modern dishes, and meat and seafood cooked on the Josper grill. (Underground: South Kensington)

Guest comments

'The staff is pleasant, helpful and accommodating, and the location in South Kensington is very convenient. The rooms are clean and cosy, but some larger than others - make sure you ask about that when booking. The dining room and sitting area on the main floor are both lovely; classically decorated while at the same time maintaining a hip and fun feel. ' - - January, 2017
