Royal Garden Hotel London

Our Favourite Family Hotel in London

The Royal Garden Hotel, London offers five star accommodation but as the website says "without the stuffiness", so you get the luxurious furnishings and soft linen but without the snobbish behaviour exhibited by the staff in most luxury hotels.

And of course this is great for families who may want top-of-the-line accommodation but are worried about their kids wrecking the place, harassing the staff or disturbing the other guests.

The prestigious historic hotel has been host to rock stars and sports icons but it maintains its low-key friendly vibe.

The hotel is located in idyllic surroundings with lush green parks a stone's throw away. From your window you'll be able to look out at Hyde Park and not a smoggy city street.

The hotel restaurant looks out in the direction of Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens. The location is also convenient to the major London attractions, only 10 minutes from the West End.

The afternoon tea is simply splendid! One of the highlights of our trip! With champagne for the adults and smoothies for the kids everyone was happy -I have to say I have tried many, many afternoon teas around the world from the Burj in Dubai to Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong and this is my absolute favourite!

Family Guests at the Royal Garden Hotel

Families can take advantage of the Family Treasure Hunt offer (£885) which includes three nights accommodation in an Executive Room which sleeps 2 adults and 2 children under 11 years old, one lunch or dinner in the Park Terrace restaurant and breakfast each day plus the Wildgoose treasure hunt.

Families can pick up a treasure map from the reception, the map will lead them around the Kensington Gardens area passed many of the sites that will interest kids.

 The hotel is within walking distance of several attractions that are perfect for kids like the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum with its giant dinosaur skeletons.  The hotel has two restaurants and two bars.

The Min Jiang is great for romantic meals on the tenth floor with breathtaking views and the Park Terrace Restaurant is elegant but informal.

The Park Terrace uses sustainable and locally sourced ingredients and the atmosphere has "all the frills but none of the fuss."

This makes it a good choice for family meals and they also have a kid's menu and high chairs are available. Kids will love the Toy Story chicken nuggets, Scooby-Doo pasta and the Donald Duck cheeseburger.

 The hotel has family rooms and rooms with interconnecting doors and cots are available on request.

If you are a couple traveling with one child you can have an extra bed put in your room for a supplementary £35 per night (£50 including breakfast). If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies the hotel can make you comfortable if you notify them in advance.
