Top stores such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols in nearby Knightsbridge vie with the intimate boutiques, chic restaurants and design stores in the ever fashionable Chelsea, while the open green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are but a short stroll away.
The ground floor of the hotel is a series of interconnecting Drawing Rooms, with welcoming open fires, large bay windows, and many original features such as the handsome stone staircase. The rooms are individually decorated in an elegant country house style, using sumptuous fabrics, deep upholstery and an eclectic mix of contemporary art and furnishings. The atmosphere is relaxed throughout, with the engaging and innovative service creating the ambiance of a smart private members club.
Guests are invited to meet, dine and drink wherever they choose throughout the day, with The Kensington Afternoon Tea being an everyday highlight.
As in any grand house the rooms at The Kensington vary in shape and in size, from the cosy to the opulently spacious. All are individually designed, with Italian marble bathrooms and a luxurious selection of furnishings and fabrics. Our newly completed Kensington Suite is amongst the most chic and elegant in London. Rooms enjoy a variety of views, through French doors onto leafy Queen's gate, over the neighbouring rooftops or onto the quiet internal courtyards. Special occasions and business events can be curated by our dedicated in-house team and hosted in our ground floor reception rooms with a selection of menus from The Kensington Hotel kitchen.
