    • Older travelers

      Very close to amenities including tube

      • Average rating
    • Family with children

      Excellent location, convenient for tube and shops. The apartment was very modern, warm, clean and comfortable. Staff were courteous and pleasant. The apartment refurbishment is very nice but could have been a bit more practical with a few less gadgets/image styling. e.g. more kitchen workbench with less full size roll out pantry, and perhaps four shower heads in the one shower is a bit more than really needed.

      The requested extra bed for our 3 year old was not in the apartment bedroom when we arrived and it needed some negotiation with the staff before they came up with an inflatable mattress that was an acceptable solution.

    • Older travelers

      The hotel is so well located and genertally well finished representing value for money.

      Air-conditioning was ineffective at times but no major drama

      Newly renovated apartments. Very convenient to have use of kitchen in suite. Very close to Earl's Court tube stop, restaurants on Earl's Court Rd and M&S.

      Sofa bed not comfortable and not able to fit 2 ppl well.

      location and cleanliness

      the fact that there is no cleaning on sunday.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      Quiet, nice view, good facilities.

      Bathroom tiny; I did ask for twin beds and near lift and did not have it; and i did ask while there for a second bedside table and light and nothing happened.

      • Average rating
    • Family with children

      Fairly comfortable and near the underground. Convenient for family.

      The bathroom was too small.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      big bed, clean environment, can do your own washing and cooking if necessary. Good location.

      • Average rating
    • Couple

      The rooms were lovely, comfortable, modern and had everything you need. Plus the location was great, 2minutes from the tube station and all the pubs and shops but it was in a quiet location.

      The staff were a bit rude and not very attentive, they made us feel like we were putting them out when we asked for extra tea-bags!!

      • Average rating
    • Group of friends

      I liked the location and the park next to the hotel.

      My room was at the basement and I didn't know that at the time of booking. I don't think is fair to pay the same for a room in the basement with a floor room with view!

      • Average rating
    • Family with children

      The rooms are quiet, the beds are comfortable, and the full kitchenette is really nice.

      The self-closing doors. Rubber door stoppers are desperately needed! The wood stoppers don't work, and they're tearing up the bottom of the doors.
