            • The location, , was great and the hotel itself was very luxurious and private. The service was excellent, bed was comfortable and on a positive note, the soap smelled really good.

              My room was at the front of the building and was noisy, staff were rude and dismissive, bath/shower was amazingly difficult to have a shower. The bar and rest was closed as appeared someone had came in, sheets were scratchy and there was a thin covering.

              Gloomy decor poor lighting, not worth the money and some of thwe furniture is looking tired and the dark lighting is irritating.

            • The location is good, decor is amazing and the staff tried to be considerate. The shower would go between scolding hot and cold, the restaurant is excellent and the loung bar also, Blakes is clearly designed towards the French leisure traveller.

              The hotel itself is tucked away just off the old brompton road, the rooms are very small and overpriced, the gilt frames of the mirrors are rotten and coming.
