Me and my three year old son had a fantastic stay at the Kensington. The staff went above and beyond to look after us, and paid particular attention to my son which was appreciated.

Extremely good hotel with very professional but friendly staff

Very good 8.0
Good hotel, poor value for money
Hotel is a real mix of contrasts. Sometimes its like a 5 star hotel, yet just around the next corner it's more like a 3. Due to a previous guest being unwell our superior / deluxe room wasn't ready at 4pm and was told we would be in a classic room and we'll swap later on. This wasn't going to work for us, so we complained and got a suite upgrade for free so no swapping later needed. And boy am I glad it was a free upgrade. I would be furious if I paid for a suite and we got this room. Bathroom was perfect, can't fault it. However the rest of the room was closer to a deluxe / superior than a suite. Fairly small, 4 poster bed was a joke (thin, bare wooden frame) and the power socket fascia fell off (v. Poor maintenance). Everything else was fine and I would be happy if it was a deluxe / superior or classic, but if I paid for a suite I would have complained. Decor in the corridors is very dated, however rest of hotel is of good standard. Breakfast was great. Very expensive but good value for money. Service was generally excellent. Staff could have been a bit more friendly / spoken better English, but overall service was good. I would go back, but only if discounted / on offer. Hotel is reasonable to good overall, but poor value for money.

My new best hotel
Excellent hotel. Very attentive and friendly staff. Relaxing atmosphere. Had to switch to this hotel when our usual hotel was unable to accommodate extended trip. Very glad they couldn't. I would have no hesitation in going back to this hotel. Life is too short to stay in average hotels or read long reviews.

Amazing anniversary stay
Great stay for our anniversary. We really appreciated the service. The hotel kindly left a wonderful note and a rose petal heart decoration on our bed. Always attentive to our needs. Magical!
