Positive Reviews

Close proximity to the Royal Albert Hall

Guests report that one of the most convenient aspects of a stay at this hotel is its close proximity to the Royal Albert Hall. They love being able to enjoy a pre-theatre dinner in the restaurant and then making the three-minute walk to see a show or performance. The hotel’s location is also handy for visiting the Science, Natural History and Victoria and Albert museums, which are all under a mile away.

Lovely traditional décor

Parts of the hotel date back to the Tudor period and guests mention that this history and heritage helps make a stay here feel very special. Guests love soaking up the period features and the whole ambiance feels like a step back into a bygone English era.

Professional service

According to guests’ comments, the hotel’s staff members provide a great service. The staff members are always ready to provide assistance including sorting out issues or helping plan tourist activities. The staff members also create a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere, allowing guests to have a great holiday or business trip.

Negative Reviews

Tube services not very close

One slight drawback raised by guests concerns the lack of a nearby tube station. Guests comment that it is a ten-minute plus walk to either Gloucester Road or South Kensington Underground Stations.

Expensive food and drink

While guests enjoy the food and drink served in the hotel’s on-site bar and restaurant, they are slightly perturbed by the high prices charged.

Quite small rooms

In a perfect world, guests would like the rooms to offer more space. They add that the bathrooms are also on the small side.
