The Bentley London

27–33 Harrington Gardens, London, SW7 4JK, England

The grandest of boutique hotels in the well-heeled neighbourhood of Kensington, The Bentley’s mix of charming, elegant style and luxury service delivers in fine form for its clientele of leisure travellers and regular business guests. Unlike some of the more hoity Kensington hotels, there’s a warm personal charm that makes The Bentley an appealing choice.

Book tickets in advance to see a show at the nearby Royal Albert Hall, one of London's finest cultural institutions.

bathroom

If you like marble then this is the hotel for you. Bathrooms are covered floor to ceiling to deliver a palatial look—set aside some time for a soak in the tub to appreciate the rarefied bathroom experience.

lobby

A boutique hotel but not as you know it, the lobby should dispel any worries about the scale of the grandeur here with its sparkling chandeliers, intricately corniced ceilings and parade of marble.

spa

Yet more stunning marble adorns the Le Kalon Spa in which the gorgeous corridors of smooth stone are enough to soothe your senses and inspire you before you even get to the varied treatments and massages on offer. In addition, the hotel also has a stunning Turkish hammam for cleansing accompanied by yet more marble opulence.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The spa is also open to paying members of the public-for guests it's complimentary.

gym

The hotel has a well-equipped gym for a full workout.

New to working out? Therapists are on-hand to get you into the groove of the cardio machines.

dining

The bright, classy dining room houses the Peridot Brasserie, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

drinking

The Malachite bar is the epitome of the seductive lounge bar, with its alluring red velvets, deep sofas and silky textiles. We dare you not to fall in love with this lusty scarlet lair after a round of cocktails.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Located between High Street Kensington and South Kensington, the hotel is in a well-to-do neighborhood filled with affluent townhouse mansions, embassies and wide boulevards to explore. While close to the Museum Quarter you might like to take taxis to nearby attractions like Harrods and Sloane Square. The closest Underground station is Gloucester Road, a 3-minute walk.

Restaurants

When you’re done with the Peridot brasserie, take a taxi to the Ivy Kensington Brasserie (18-minute walk) for a charming, stylish alternative with a similarly wealthy clientele. Alternatively, go to Kensington Square Kitchen (15-minute walk) and eat seasonal British classics in a bright, informal restaurant.

Bars

To indulge in something a little different, head to Chelsea and drink cocktails on the Kings Road at the stylish Beaufort House (16-minute walk). For more Chelsea drinks, head to the neighbourhood’s unofficial society HQ, The Botanist (10-minute taxi ride).

WHY WE LIKE IT

While the location is neither quite in the middle of Knightsbridge or right on the doorstep of the Museum Quarter, its removal from the busy spots of Kensington make it more appealing for those who want a break from the city—while still being in the thick of it. The rooms are spacious, grand and extravagant and the ambiance charms with its overtly English overtures.
