Looking for somewhere to stay on Business, I checked the Kenwood out on the internet. For £72 it fitted easily into my budget and the web pictures looked modern and clean. The reception area is spacious and the desk staff were friendly and helpful. I was booked into room 305 that overlooked the car park, no problem. First impression of the room was large and spacious, two arm chairs, old style telly, but looked ok. I put the lights on and fond the plaster coming off the wall, the back of the door was dirty and marked and the wallpaper was flaking off the walls in certain areas. The bed linen was clean, but the decor was dated and tired looking. The bathroom was not the cleanest I've been in and the paintwork was as tired as Rip Van Winkle! The furniture was not up to scratch, sorry it was well scratched. TV channels were limited, even in this advanced technological age, and WIFI was not free??? I don't understand why and how hotels have the audacity to charge for internet access, when they charge so much for the room. After a swim and a sauna, in again a dated spa area, tiles missing flaking paintwork etc, I went to the bar and ordered a Becks Vier, cost £4.60, there's me thinking I was in Sheffield not Central London. Needless to say I didn't partake in another one, I decided to walk up the road and found a real ale bar serving good beer at a decent price. Breakfast was ok, cheap sausages, cold mushrooms, under toasted toast and cheap tasteless orange juice. Come on you advertise yourself as much more and failed to come up with the goods. Not the worst hotel I have stayed in, but certainly nowhere near the best within that price range. Personally I wouldn't go back, but be warned its not all the marketing blurb makes it out to be!!!
