The Kensington Hotel

Welcome to The Kensington Hotel

A Doyle Collection Hotel

The Kensington Hotel, at the corner of Queen's Gate and the Old Brompton Road, has an imposing white façade typical of this elegant 19th Century neighbourhood. Home to Victoria & Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and The Royal Albert Hall, the area is also a much sought after residential neighbourhood. 

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.

Menus & Details


Smart, leather chairs, polished wooden floors and chrome chandeliers give the Restaurant a clubby feel, but the food’s the star here. Delicious, modern European dishes created by Head Chef using the freshest seasonal produce, make every meal at the restaurant an absolute pleasure.

The adjoining cocktail bar, with its slate floors, distressed mirrors, timber-clad walls and blue glass ceiling, is the domain of award-winning mixologist, Alessandro Pizzoli. 

From the time-honoured classics to something a little more experimental, Pizzoli’s artistry is a delight to behold. And his Cocktail Master Classes are a big draw for business and leisure travellers alike.
