You can expect truly top class service at this hotel. All of the staff were both friendly and very attentive.
When a guy in our party returned from a jog, he was greeted by the doorman with a wet towel to cool him down and a bottle of water. We were also offered umbrellas on leaving the hotel if raining outside. These are just examples of the attention to detail that we experienced throughout our stay.
The hotel is just a short walk from South Kensington tube station which is on the Piccadilly line making for convenient access from/to Heathrow Airport. The hotel is in a very nice area.
The hotel is very comfortable and has been beautifully refurbished since we were last there.
Bumped into Ronan Keating the first evening we were there and saw Eddie Jordan the following morning in reception. If it's good enough for these guys..............
We would highly recommend this hotel if you want to treat yourself and be pampered.
