Went to london with my partner for his 50th birthday and this hotel didn't disappoint at all. The location is perfect 5 minute walk to Victoria tube station and Holland and Kensington Park within 15 minute walk. Entering the hotel we quickly noticed how clean everything was which is a bonus in our currant climate. Checking was quick and easy and very welcoming staff especially Ali who went above and beyond you make my partners birthday weekend the best yet. We were upgraded and even a birthday cake was delivered to our room for him. The room was beautiful and clean with a king size bed, fridge, bath and shower. The bed was so comfortable too. We had breakfast by room sevice which was really tasty and boiling hot, definitely 10/10. We used the swimming pool once it was lovely and would have loved to use the jacuzzi but bc there was only 2 ppl in same bubble a time we had to wait and they hogged 😂 We would definitely come here again and cant wait till next time. Thank you Ali for being so awesome.

Fab staff. All so friendly. It was my daughters birthday and they have been amazing. Special shout outs to Ali in Starbucks what a lovely, professional member of the holiday inn team. They are very fortunate to have him. Ali in guest relations/reception was the most generous kind member of staff I’ve met. The holiday inn Kensington have the best staff ever.

I stayed for work for one night in this hotel. The location was perfect for my needs and the area was lovely. Hotel exceeded expectations and it was lovely having the spa to go for a swim too. Room was basic but clean and I had a comfortable nights sleep. Check in (not sure of the mans name) and check out (Sylwia) were both seamless and both members of staff were very friendly. As were all the other staff I saw round the hotel at various points. I will be sure to return to this hotel in the future for both business and leisure. Thank you!

The large comfortable lounge areas are very nice to relax with a drink or work with your laptop. Unfortunately couldn’t use pool or gym as they were closed due to covid. Most of the staff were super friendly and very helpful! Frederica at reception and Ali at the hotels Starbucks were amazing
