Absolutely diabolical. Having checked my reservation with the Hotel and received a reply I travelled over 75 miles to arrive at The Hotel. I was politely greeted at the door. only to find the Reservations Manager refused to accept my Reservation he said " it is Tier 4, and not a holiday" I duly informed him I was not there for a Holiday and explained as to why I had the reservation, he was still insulting and objectionable so I politely left. May I suggest that you remove Holiday Inn Kensington High Street London , from Expedia. I would not recommend anyone to stay there especially not if necessary. A most unpleasant experience.

A LONDON BREAK FOR A MUCH NEEDED TONIC
We were apprehensive about a hotel stay.With everything we have heard and read in the media regarding hotel vacations.But we needed have been what we had read couldn't have been more wrong as from Sam checking us in to our checking out our overall stay was wonderful the measures of cleanliness and sanitising also social distancing put in place for our safety were all excellent. Breakfast was really tasty and the restaurant staff could not have been more helpful.The spa was just as good as the rest of the hotel with all the correct measures put in place.Also each time we returned to the hotel after a day out we were encouraged to test our temperatures and do the test and trace.

Avoid this hotel
It has been 10 days since check out and this hotel still has not refunded our deposit of 150 pounds. They have not responded to any emails. The room itself was ok - not up to Holiday Inn standard though. Tiny room, power went out during our stay, we had no water at all for a while during our stay, the wifi cut in and out, the phone didn’t work, and some front desk staff weren’t overly friendly. Would not return
