Property details


A classically styled Kensington stay in a former Earl’s mansion, close to London’s exciting museums and Hyde Park – includes breakfast.

  • Glamorous location: With a fabulous location in London's glitzy Kensington, you’d be hard pressed to find such a central spot as Strathmore Hotel from which to explore the city. Do some learning at the world-class museums nearby, take a short wander to Hyde Park or hop on the tube and experience the rest of the city.

  • Graceful restoration: This elegant property has been fully restored since its time as a Victorian mansion, once home to the Earl of Strathmore - the late Queen Mother’s father. The beautiful chandeliered restaurant serves European dishes in its grandiose setting, and there’s also a bar for post-sightseeing drinks.

  • Decadent dining: Rooms come with splashes of the same glamour, with plush fabrics and heavy drapes. To continue the classic British decadence, settle down in the Lounge bar for an afternoon tea of freshly prepared cakes and pastries – or perhaps a refreshing pre-theatre cocktail.
