The hotel is a traditional townhouse terrace. The exterior is in excellent condition and very typical of this area.
This hotel is ideally situated in a quiet side street in the heart of fashionable South Kensington. The nearest underground station is South Kensington just five minutes' walk from the hotel.
A few of the rooms are small and in exceptional condition with warm, homey decor. Most of the rooms are a little more dated in appearance, but still in very good condition. All the bathrooms are simply decorated and in very good condition. The hotel follows a policy of constantly upgrading, so it will not be long before all rooms are of exceptional standard.
