I attended a Charity Fashion Show with Afternoon Tea. The company and show were good. The tea was disappointing; scones with runny coulis not jam (try putting cream on that!). Sandwiches and cakes were quite nice but nothing special. The service was just adequate but most of the staff spoke little or no English so asking for skimmed or semi-skimmed...

Staff were friendly, but you couldn't swing a cat in the tiny rooms. Almost impossible to have 2 people walking about simultaneously. Good location, and has car parking underneath which is handy. Park opposite for a walk or run.

Great location for getting around. The car park is not very accessible due to its very tight spiralling entrance. I would advice that you get the staff to park your car as they have experience in driving down to the lowers levels. The specification in the room was good but for me a little small.

We have stayed on quite a few occasions and have been lucky enough to be upgraded more than once. The staff are lovely and the rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend a Garden Room as the views are fabulous across Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. It is a great location too.

The hotel is well located on Kensington High Street with shops, cafes and bars. Next to Kensington Palace and gardens. A 20 minute stroll will get you to Knightsbridge.

The Royal Garden is genuinely a very good hotel. Have stayed there many times in the past. The rooms have been refurbished to a much more contemporary feel and look, as has the rest of the hotel. If you are travelling with 2 kids or more, it becomes tricky for them to accommodate you, the rooms being very small and...

I stayed here for a week while visiting London before going on a cruise.
