Never having spent Christmas away from home before It was with a level of trepedation that my partner and I decided to give it a go. What a great choice! The kensington hotel was our choice having stayed there back in the summer for a weekend break. On that occasion we opted for the lowest standard of room and albeit a little cramped it was well furnished and decorated. Being that on this occasion it was Christmas we decided to upgrade and for the little extra cost it was well worth it. Still the same high standard of room but with added space to make the stay a little more comfortable. The location of the hotel is well set being only a short walk to the tube station and many of the attractions in the area and parking is not too bad either due to a car park on the same road. As for our stay, well all I can say is that we had a wonderful time from the minute we arrived. Check in was efficient, the staff on the desk were friendly and extremely helpful. This runs throughout the hotel staff from room service to bar service and from porters to restaurant staff. In fact I would like to say that the atmosphere they create is what makes the difference. All in all we had a wonderful time is a very tasteful hotel. As regular visitors to London we will definitely make this hotel our first choice in the future.
