A super-stylish five-star boutique hotel in South Kensington with an elegant façade and serving fabulously fun afternoon teas - including breakfast


When you're not splashing the cash, you can visit the huge range of excellent museums and galleries within walking distance of the hotel. Try the V&A for starters, then head to the impressive Natural History Museum and the Science Museum (a good one for kids). For evening entertainment, follow the lead of the hotel and see a performance at the nearby Royal Albert Hall. These are just the things right on your doorstep: take the tube into Central London for a West End show, world-class restaurants and iconic shopping on Regent Street and Oxford Street.

Can't commit to booking right now?

Hold a date for only £25 while you decide.

  • Pay £25 to hold a date until the end of the sale.
  • If you choose to buy it, the money will go towards your purchase, if not, the cash will be credited to your Secret Escapes account.

Important: Please note, this is not a deposit, complete or guaranteed booking; holding the date simply prevents other members from swooping in and booking your preferred date while you're still having a think about it. Secret Escapes will not be liable for expenses incurred should that date not be available to book and a hold is cancelled.
