Stayed on business, decided to choose the Thistle Kensington Gardens as I thought it may be slightly better due to the recent re-furbishment, plus I had read many positive reviews.
Due to the positive reviews, I had high hopes, however, the hotel is in an odd location right above a fuel station (my room was immediately over the top). I stayed in an Executive room which I have to say was clean, but that is about it.
The shower didn't work properly and the bathroom was very small. Lots of people were complaining about the lift and how difficult it was to use with your key card? (strange to have to use your key card for the lift - I personally had no difficulty with this, but others did).
Would I choose to stay again - No.
