    5/5 Excellent

    not in 904

    First room - 904 - was under the lift motors and very noisy but we were quickly moved to a lower level right at the end of the corridor. When we arrived only 1 lift if the 3 was working and they're only big enough for 2 people and a small case. Otherwise the room fitted our needs perfectly

    4/5 Good

    Great, but only let down by not having enough staff on the check in desk. All of the staff who we dealt with were excellent though.

    3/5

    The location was very good, next to Kensington Gardens, there is a petrol station underneath it which could be an advantage for motorists but does not do a lot for the image of the front of the hotel. Room was quite comfortable and no real problems at check in or check out.
