The Kensington Hotel – The Town House Suite Launch

When the lovely Mina of Kings Road Rocks invited me to The Kensington Hotel for the launch of London’s largest town house suite I jumped at the chance. I am a self-confessed boutique hotel addict and I was very excited to see the plush new suite!
The Kensington Hotel forms part of the Doyle Collection, a group of eight luxury hotels around the world.



The interior is comfortable and contemporary with drawing rooms perfect for an afternoon tea.
Past the drawing room I entered into the main party area where I set about mingling with the fellow guests.
I was offered the choice of two cognac-based cocktails and chose a gorgeous concoction of champers, gin and lavender.
Cocktail in hand, I got chatting to the other party guests and I met the lovely Melanie of Sunny in London and Fiona from London Unattached.
Gorgeous canapes were passed around as we got to know each other and chatted to Pat King, CEO of the Doyle Collection.




The crayfish in cucumber cups were my favourite!And now the bit we’d been waiting for! The tour of the town house suite. The huge suite has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and two distinct living areas!

The first living area had a cool curvy sofa and flat screen TV.

Next, on to the first bedroom kitted out in cool silver and blue tones with an art deco feel to it.

Check out the cool TV / mirror thingy!




The sumptuous circular day bed was the best bit but I also LOVED the nespresso machine.


And the bathroom had a TV too!

The bathroom had all the latest accessories including heated floors, walk-in showers and whirlpool baths. Forget the other rooms I could just stay in here if I had a glass of wine from room service!

The town house suite is an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary and the next bedroom featured a four poster bed and a bath on feet. A real contrast to the modern style of the first bathroom.



I loved the antique oriental feel of this living space.

Refreshments anyone?

The final space is characterised by its red colour and the living area here was exquisite.

And included a 1930’s Murano chandelier.


I adored the beautiful and luxurious Kensington Suite, can I live there please?

The versatile space can be reserved in separate bedrooms or as a whole and is ideal for anyone seeking large accommodation. The Kensington location also means that the hotel is perfect for many of London’s tourist attractions, and of course Harrods and Harvey Nics!
