Good location for plenty of walking.
We wanted to stay in Kensington High Street to be fairly flexible on where we could walk to. Location was ideal. Hotel looked really lovely inside. Our room was quite small and the mattress on one side (it was a large bed with separate mattresses) had a dip at the joining side, so quite often I found I'd fallen into this which really didn't help my back.

Our stay at Kensington High St Holiday Inn
This hotel is amazing. We had a lovely stay here at this hotel. We stayed for two nights. Everyone from Reception, Concierge even the doorman should all be proud of their hospitality and kindness. Nothing was to much trouble. The dining room serving breakfast in the morning was lovely. The General Manager of this hotel simply has an amazing staff portfolio. We wanted to use the swimming pool but simply ran out of time. The Starbucks area opp reception was a nice touch. Hotel situated in a great place very close to Kensington High St tube station. Only one negative, house keeping knocking at the door at 9am to see if they could turn the room around. Even with the sign on door. Not a biggie in my book. I thought check out was at 12 midday. Surely a small computer like in American hotels to see if individual rooms had checked out. When they did tidy they did an amazing job.

what more could go wrong?
Terrible stay. No loo roll when we got in the room, no tv remote, no working air con, no robes or slippers for the pool, no running water in the morning. This all took 10+ calls and tired dismissive staff to sort out. Please care about your customers more. Thanks
