Excellent boutique hotel

Booked 4 rooms for a girls trip to watch the tennis at Queens. The hotel is just off the main road in a beautiful quiet street, but a 2 minute walk from the Natural History Museum and the V&A. The experience was 10/10 from start to finish. The staff are exceptional. Every request was treated with what was bordering on delight!
Yes, the rooms are small, but that's usual for London. We all felt that we'd be very happy to stay in the hotel alone - it has a safe, closeted feel that is important for girls. You need to understand that this is a boutique hotel - there is no pool or gym (all the better as far as I am concerned - we were there to have fun). We had a lovely lunch in their delightful courtyard garden. I've recently stayed at their sister neighbouring hotel, The Kensington. This is also very, very good, but I think my new fav in London is Number 16.


Stayed here for one night on business. For the price there are several other hotels with better room and amenities. Plus .. very comfortable bed. Minus .. the room was so small. I’m not a big person but my knees were hitting the sink... I stayed as a tablet plus member and received none of the promised upgrades.. no glasses or cups for in the room for use .. Only reason I chose this hotel was because they are the same owners of Hamyard which is a GREAT hotel!

Pricey disappointment

This hotel is well situated just a 5 minute walk from South Kensington tube station. The room on the 3rd floor was small, though nicely furnished. The en-suite was very small (approx 6’x3’) and any person larger than average may have difficulties using the facilities. On the booking site the hotel is listed as having a lift, it does but only to the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor is accessed by a fairly steep staircase, anyone with mobility issues should make hotel aware of this as this staircase is the only access, including in an emergency. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Taking all these matters into account then a charge of over £300 for one night for the room we had was exorbitant. Staff friendly and helpful.
