They don’t make hotels like this anymore…

The embodiment of relaxed Kensington class, the Gainsborough looks back to a simpler, more elegant age. But we also look forward: to providing modern, great value hotel experiences in our handsome Victorian townhouse in the heart of fashionable West London.

Imagine a leafy lane in South Kensington, with the famous Natural History Museum at one end and a beautiful Art Deco cinema at the other. It’s there, tucked inside one of the creamy-fronted terraces, that you’ll find a taste of the effortless charm that London was once famous for. It’s now a spectacular modern city, of course, but the Gainsborough offers a refuge for tourists, business guests and families keen to see the sights and then come home to a part of the city renowned for its chic cafés and peaceful squares, and a hotel renowned for its luxurious beds and classic styling. Perhaps there’s time for a quick drink in the comfortable lounge – oh, and be sure to not miss breakfast in the morning. We think our dining room, all bright natural light, oil paintings and string quartets, is one of West London’s loveliest. Leave everything in the hands of our friendly, experienced staff, and above all relax: they don’t make hotels like this any more, so make the most of this one.
