South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

Dear ynoAustralia, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts on our hotel. We really value feedback from repeat customers such as yourself and I appreciate your taking the time to do so. I'm sorry we didn't meet our own high standards during this visit. I can assure you that we have no single beds in the hotel - the minimum is a UK double which is 120cm wide. On your next visit you may like to consider booking a King Executive room. These are available for a small supplement and include a bed which is 200cm wide. I'm pleased you had a positive experience with our Breakfast and Concierge teams and I do hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the future. Please do drop me a line prior to your next visit and I will be happy to assist in any way I can. Kind regards, Simon Wood Front Office Manager

Dear he333, Thanks very much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us regarding your recent stay. I'm delighted to read that our staff looked after the birthday boy so well and that you found our location so convenient. I'm sorry that you didn't find the beds very comfortable.

For the benefit of other guests, please do let us know if you find these uncomfortable as we may be able to find a suitable alternative for you. I hope we can welcome welcome you back in the future for another stay. Kind regards, Simon Wood Front Office Manager

We were there in January and the room was so cosy that we didn't even turn the heaters on! Yes they are there but the hotel is warm anyway.
