Lovely reception staff, great welcome. Compact rooms but suits us, we're only small! Bathrooms were very small, more than 10 stone you'd struggle to clean your teeth innthe small gap between the shower and sink. Beds, blooming awful!!! My concrete feel bed, felt like it had a topper of tarmac! The carpet outside the room had more bounce! Pillows, hard or soft...both awful. Terrible coffee from the bar but the nachos were immense although not worth the money...dont forget to add the service charge to the menu price. Would stay in the area again, but not this place. Best thing about it, bar leaving it....the swimming pool.

Unfortunately when we checked in the receptionist told me at 3.45pm that our room wasn't ready & said for £40 we could get the Premium room. I told her its not my fault when the rooms not ready. After speaking to her colleague she'd got it wrong. She also failed to direct to our room & let us know about breakfast etc until i prompted her. Later we discovered the flush in the room didn't work just as we were going out for the evening. I had to chase reception twice & in the end had to go down to reception. A lovely gentleman named Amar was very helpful & changed our room as no one was available to sort out the repair. Breakfast times not enough staff to assist when needing something. Overall not a great experience but staff did try and were polite.

In general a very pleasant stay, rooms are rather small (standard for London I suppose), rooms were quiet, we moved rooms because our aircon heating was not working. Perfect location & we enjoyed using the gym & pool early mornings.

Location: We liked the location for sure - very handy being a short walk from the Kensington High Street tube - safe area and lots of dining choices. Food/dining in hotel: We did not like the breakfast buffet only because it was *so* crowded - with only one coffee machine working - horrible line to just get a cup! Food was decent, though. The next day we ordered in but room service for breakfast forgot all the usual condiments ie: milk for coffee, butter/jam/anything for bread; ketchup, etc for omelette. This was check out day and we were limited on time. Pub grub was decent. Staff everywhere very friendly and helpful; Room - very small and many stains on carpet. We paid for a standard king room which was described as having a tub/shower combo, but not as advertised, only just a shower. Very disappointing. Temperature - although we adjusted it, we were freezing cold and there was no spare blanket in the closet.
