Blakes Hotel is regarded as one of the world’s first luxury boutique hotels and has soared in popularity since its opening in 1978.

The hotel’s elegance and captivating design supports the uniqueness promoted throughout all 45 bedrooms, five suites and restaurant.  

A converted collection of period Victorian town houses, styled by world renowned designer, Anouska Hempel. The menu offered in the restaurant is exquisite, from free-range charcoal grilled chicken with rosemary, to black cod with courgette flower, miso and tahini – you can’t beat the selection. The courtyard allows guests to relax by the beautiful bay trees and buxos, whilst enjoying a typical morning cup of tea or an early evening cocktail – all year round.

The new bar opening in September 2016 is expected to unite flavour and style together, allowing city goers to enjoy an after work drink and hotel guests to indulge in a beverage following their day of touring the city. The lavish environment is a welcoming stay for affluent travellers who wish to have a luxurious, bespoke experience in the heart of Kensington.
