Standout quarters include Room 16 (Exceptional), with its huge round bed and Edwardian bathing machine, Room 22 (Great) with its big rolltop bathtub for two and Room 2 (Exceptional), with its colonial and a big free standing tub. Room 42 (Better) is another top favourite, with its wicked mirrored ceiling and sunken bathtub.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
There's no in-house restaurant, but The Portobello has a light bites menu featuring sandwiches, paninis and snacks.

Continental breakfast is served until late, so look forward to fresh croissants and organic coffee. Menu options include smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with a bottle of champagne.

See & Do
Saturday morning at Portobello Road market is one of the must-dos: you'll find every kind of antique stall and dozens of little emporia selling memorabilia, paintings, objets d'art and vintage clothing. You're also close to Holland Park, Kensington Palace and its gardens and the greenery of Hyde Park, not to mention most of the West End.

The Beauty Works West health club at Lampton Place is five minutes away.

Diary Dates
August bank holiday weekend
Turn up the volume. The Notting Hill Carnival – a two-day fiesta of Caribbean bands, parades and steel bands – has to be one for the diary.
