“Impeccable service, gorgeous rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

We stayed at Blakes for a romantic night away from the kids and it was a perfect location. The staff were friendly and helpful without being overly attentive. We were upgraded to a Signature suite and stayed in the Library - which was absolutely gorgeous.

Bar staff were also very knowledgeable and friendly, making us an array of different martinis to try before dinner (making the most of not being woken up by children at some unearthly hour the next morning!)

We usually stay in Claridge's when we're in town but after this lovely experience we may have to think hard about where to stay next time.

Tucked away on a tree lined South Kensington street is truly a hidden treasure!
From the moment you arrive you just know it's going to be fabulous!
It was a romantic weekend filled with delights. The staff are there when you want them and when you want to be left alone they sense this and you have all the privacy you want ... ahhh ... Loved our time in the china room - afternoon tea that was flawless, we are most grateful for the perfection motto at the Blake!

Room Tip: Experience the Blake - it's a Must!

I booked Afternoon tea here to celebrate my parents' anniversary.It was in the Chinese room which has a lovely calm atmosphere. The tea was somewhat limited in choice but the Asian fusion cakes (green tea tiramisu for example) were marvellous as were the sandwiches and the scones. The staff were helpful and accommodating. They usually serve afternoon tea between 3 and 5 but were happy to do 2:30 for me which I very much appreciated. If you looking for somewhere tranquil and elegant for afternoon tea I would strongly recommend the Blakes

Dear Guest,
I am so glad that you enjoyed our Afternoon Tea. At £19 per head it must be the best value for money Afternoon tea in London.
Live Music on Tuesday nights is also a well ept secret!

A very chic and cosy boutique hotel. A bit far from the city center . 5 min with Taxi to Harrods.
Very friendly staff . The hotel feels a little bit small specially the bar and breakfast area. But the service and the food compensate alot.

We recently not only stayed at Blakes but we also decided to hold our wedding here - mainly due to the style, character and ambience of the hotel.

I have to say that both the stay and the management of our wedding was absolutely exemplary. The food was exceptional and widely complimented on, the support and attitude of all of the substantial staff provided was outstanding and special mention should be made to Daniele for his organisation and exceptionally hard work before the wedding but more particularly on the night, and to Julian, for his personal management and support throughout the process. The suite was outstanding and I've no doubt we will be back.

I can't recommend Blakes highly enough. Amazing.

Roland Gardens it's a bit out of the trodden path in Knightsbridge, but Blake's is a wonderful hotel. Service is very good, excellent rooms with a truly individual design, and and onsite excellent bar and restaurant. The restaurant at Blake's is high quality, french cuisine and very well prepared and top ingredients. Service in the bar and restaurant can't be faulted, up to the mark.
So if you don't mind trotting along a bit to get to the more central parts of London, or you're a fan of the cab experience, Blake's a good choice.
