“4 nights here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Our room was clean and comfortable and very nice. The elevator is tiny and the lobby is the same but we had a good breakfast ( not included) and found the staff very friendly. Lots of good restaurants nearby but PJ's at the end of the street was a top notch find.

I used to work near Sydney Street in Chelsea. I used to watch the glittering super rich nip in and out of the white terraced houses, catching the odd glimpse of sleek hallways and oversized architectural plants within. One day, I thought, one day. Well I'm further than ever from the dream of a Chelsea town house but one night at Sydney House brings that world just a little closer. Cleverly designed, spotlessly clean, this hotel could be intimidatingly forbidding but the welcome is warm and our upgraded bedroom was comfortable with the wonderful addition of a spectacular roof terrace. An extremely powerful shower and particularly lovely toiletries made for a really indulgent experience and if the freshly cooked breakfast took over 20 minutes to arrive it was a minor quibble in an otherwise lovely Made in Chelsea night out.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking time to write the review. We are so pleased that you found our hotel to your satisfaction and had a pleasant stay. I am sorry to hear you had to wait 20 minutes for cooked breakfast to arrive. It can take a few minutes to deliver a full English breakfast during busy times. However, I can assure you that all ingredients are cooked a la minute from a fresh; nothing is pre-cooked, reheated, or is coming from a carton here. I am glad you enjoyed it.
Many thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.
Kind regards

This smart and sophisticated hotel has become our hotel of choice when staying in London. The staff are always welcoming and helpful. The location is superb and ideal for a stroll along the Kings Road on a Sunday morning. As always the room was comfortable, well presented and just has the hint of being that little bit special.
We will be back...

We had been looking for a hotel near to the Chelsea Flower Show for some time and through TripAdvisor, found and read about the Sydney House Hotel. We took a chance to stay there for one night as a base to go and see Mike and The Mechanics at the Apollo Hammersmith [easy access from South Kensington tube]. The hotel was perfect. Comfortable, well maintained, friendly and wonderfully quiet despite being in between the Fulham and Kings Road. Staff were welcoming and helpful, especially at breakfast which was perfect. Really glad we are booked in again for two nights in May. Plenty of choice for local eating, wining and dining and simple access to the tube. Rooms are compact [Room 9 for us] and very comfortable. Many thanks to the team for a great stay.

Stayed again after 12 months in the room at the top and was pleased to find that Sydney house retains the same standard and service as before . I suppose that I should not be surprised really as if it's anything to do with the Brownsword group then it will be good.
Staff and room were spot on, and it's worth paying the extra for room at the top.
Beautifully cooked breakfast served to the roof top garden, and this time we were directed to good value underground parking just around the corner in Sloan Street. ( even got the car valeted) that's something that Gidleigh doesn't offer!
All in all, this is an excellent place to stay in London.
Thank you.

Room Tip: Book room at the Top.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your comments. We are delighted that the house you visited 12 months ago is very much the same and your stay was enjoyable.

However, some things will change.
You will be pleased to know that with the return of good weather, the decking on the terrace has been re-varnished and we are ready for delivery of new, all teak, garden furniture from a nearby garden shop.
Our gardener has pencilled some days in for new plants in not too distant future.So the roof garden terrace will look even better this spring and summer. All we need is sunshine now.


Many thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards,
V. Mandic
