There isn't much to say, other thsn this hotel has a lot of character, the service is excellent and it's most welcoming. The room was spotless and crisp, everything on point, just the way we like it. Thank you very much for a wonderful experience.
A superb hotel full of charm and character. It's so refreshing to stay somewhere with personality and a touch of individual luxury. The staff are so friendly, attentive and professional. One of my favourite places to stay.More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
