Expert reviews

Frommers review:

“The Firmdale Hotels group mostly operates boldfaced-name hotels in the West End—the kinds of places where scenesters swill designer gin and fashion magazines shoot. Here, though, husband/wife designers/owners Tim and Kit Kemp create one of the loveliest B&B experiences in the city.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in London.

Fodors review:

“A reflection of the well-heeled neighborhood it calls home, the beautiful Number 16 hotel is a charming Victorian stucco terrace townhouse a few minutes from South Kensington Tube.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in London.

Telegraph review:

“Every room in this townhouse hotel is bursting with colour and effervescent charm, thanks to splashy Chelsea textiles and characterful artwork hand-picked by design director Kit Kemp. It’s close to Kensington’s major museums, high-end shops and restaurants. The afternoon tea, at £22 per person, offers great value.”
