First the good parts - It has a good location, with easy access to public transportation. The available staff was very nice and tried to be helpful whenever possible. However, I would not stay here again, mainly because I felt that I was the victim of false advertising. While preparing for this trip, I narrowed the hotel choices down to...

My wife and I used Mildew Manor as home base for our honeymoon trip to London. It was conveniently located, and not the worst accommodation we found in England by far (do NOT stay at the Holmlea Guest House in York), but we were definitely disappointed. The building itself had slid a bit past "shabby chic" to settle firmly in...

I stayed in March of 2003 and was commuting in and out of London during my visit. The desk was made aware of my late arrivals, made later by inclement weather, and always made sure someone was there to let me in. They were very kind about storing my luggage, and always were ready to pitch in and help answer...

There were pigeon droppings all over the window in the small bedroom of our two room suite. It was disgusting to touch the handle on the window because of the pigeon droppings on the handle, the wall, the drapes, and the window sill. The smell was even worse. We were there in August, 2003, during the heat wave. We had...

I'e stayed at the Kensington Manor several times over the years and have always enjoyed my time there. The hospitality was always great, the location is convenient to the tube, local shopping, and reasonable resturants.

We stayed at the Kensington Manor in January 2003. We booked the family "suite" at 100 BPS per night, which in London is a fabulous price. I must say it was a great value as we had two bedrooms and a bath, on the ground floor just off reception. The master bedroom had a queen size bed and sitting area,...

This place was horrible. I booked it via expedia for £60 for a single room - it was rated as two star. It is advertised as a 24 hour reception (but it shuts at 12pm). My room was about as big as the bed in it, the sheets were clean which is more than I could say for the floor....
