Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My family stayed at Cheval Thorney Court for 23 days! It was the perfect place to isolate and spend a significant portion of time in London. The location is ideal - directly across from Kensington Gardens. Once we were allowed out, the property is ideal for walking to many places - High Street Kensington, Notting Hill, Bayswater, Victoria and Albert Museum, etc. and many bus lines are either right out the door or around the corner.

The flat itself was extremely comfortable, spacious and well appointed. The air conditioning was really appreciated on the extremely hot days during our stay. The property is undergoing renovation and we look forward to seeing the results on our next stay. If we needed anything like extra dishes, glassware, etc. it was promptly provided by the lovely staff. We had everything from groceries, wine, deliveroo, and amazon delivered regularly and it was quickly sent to the flat on arrival.

The staff were extremely pleasant and made us feel very at home. Thorney Court exceeded our expectations from the reservation process to checkout and was a great value given how good lodging can be so expensive in London.

My husband and I stayed at Thorney Court when in London for Madonna at the Palladium. What an absolute treat. The property is stunning with every need catered for.

The rooms in our apartment were huge, beautifully decorated, comfortable and homely. Our apartment overlooked Kensington gardens and our terrace afforded panoramic views of London. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating.

Gloucester Road and High Street Kensington tube stations are just a few minutes walk away and we were spoiled for choice with the number of restaurants nearby.

Our stay in Thorney Court will help our trip to London stay in our memories for many many years. It truly is a special place to stay.

My family and I stayed here back in 2015 and had such an amazing experience we were worried we couldn’t match it when we returned last month — but we were wrong. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The location is perfect — across from Kensington Palace and Gardens, walking distance of two tube stops (Kensington High Street and Gloucester Road), plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops nearby, buses right outside the door that will take you to Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Piccadilly and Green Park. Service is impeccable — friendly, helpful, knowledgeable — both the front desk and housekeeping. The accommodations for our group of five family members were perfect — 3 bedrooms each with their own bathroom, a well-appointed kitchen, big screen TV, terraces outside of each bedroom, a comfortable dining room and living room. The welcome basket full of snacks and beverages was a lovely touch. We will definitely stay again — this is an off-the-radar gem that we highly recommend. Everyone in our group, ages 18 to 63, loved it!

From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more welcoming. Our apartment was located on the 10th floor with wonderful views across Kensington Gardens. It was very spacious and the decor was beautiful. The location was perfect for our planned outings (including afternoon tea at The Ritz) and with restaurants within 10-15minute walk.

Our particular thanks to Craig and Martin, part of the Conceige team, for all their help during our stay.

I was traveling alone with my two daughters for a week to take some high school exams. As soon as we arrived they gave us a room upgrade, without asking for it, to the Penthouse which was exceptional and wonderful. Exquisitely decorated on the 11th floor, with a large terrace that looked like a garden and spectacular views. We had a vase with beautiful fresh flowers in the living room and a basket with products for the first days: coffee, sugar and salt, chocolates, cereals, bread, jam and butter and more things. The kitchen appliances are all top-notch: Miele. The beds, mattresses, duvets are wonderful. When we arrived they had placed all the purchases we had made through Amazon Fresh. The attention of the staff has been exquisite, both at the reception, the cleaning and the manager who was at the reception every day asking if everything was correct or if we had any needs. We have felt safe, cared for and welcomed in a luxury apartment in an exceptional location. At reception they have organized our car and taxi reservations every day, helping us at all times. We have felt this week as if we were at home. Without a doubt, the best stay and the best accommodation in London.

Terrific apartments for short and long stays, extremely well equipped in kitchen and baths and the most attentive concierge and housekeeping staffs we have ever encountered in London or anywhere else for that matter. Extremely well equipped gym, no need to go elsewhere. And so much fun to walk out of your door into the beauty of Hyde Park. We stayed six weeks the first time and came back again for another month three months later.

We’ve stayed here before and the guest experience is as good as ever. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and the registration / payment formalities were completed within 5 minutes. Our apartment was immaculately presented, comfortable and inviting. The staff could not have done more for us. We were sad to leave but we know we will return.

Our stay was exactly what we wanted the accommodation was great with views over Kensington Gardens. The staff were very helpful and polite. We stayed for 6 nights with guests staying on a couple of the nights. We have also stayed at Cheval Three Quays and we received the same quality of service.

This huge apartment was magnificent. It was beautifully furnished with every amenity available. The staff are friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. The location is superb being opposite Kensington Gardens and a short walk from Kensington High Street. There are multiple restaurants within a short walk as well as other significant landmarks close by. You will not find a larger apartment in London. This is truly a home away from home.
