- Venue Description:
In the midst of bustling High Street Kensington, and directly opposite Kensington Palace, is this building from the 1880s, a luxurious collection of two bedroom apartments, luxury rooms and suites, all individually designed. Whether you opt for the traditional Princess or the Safari suite, you will find yourself in elegant (although sometimes a bit over-the-top) surroundings that also incorporate high-tech gadgetry and unparalleled service. In what the Red Carnation hotel group would probably say is their tradition, DVD/CD players, robes, Penhaligon toiletries and fresh flowers are provided in all rooms. In-room express checkout and private car service in the hotel's Bentley are also available. The hotel's dining facilities include casual dining and high tea in the Park Lounge, drinks and snacks at Stables bar and traditional cuisine at Cheneston's restaurant. Picnic baskets to be enjoyed in Kensington Gardens or Hyde Park can be prepared. The oak-paneled Windsor Suite can accommodate up to 50 people, depending on arrangement, and has a private kitchen. There's also the Map Room (up to six people) and the Conservatory (maximum 12 people). With so much to look forward to at this hotel, it is simply a fine combination of ultimate comfort and creative flair.
