Twins, doubles and themed suites are named after famous Kensington & Chelsea residents and feature chic, modern furnishings.

The Sir Alfred Hitchcock Suite was special, with a private lounge and mezzanine bedroom.

What is there to eat and drink at 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel?

Chelsea isn’t short of amazing restaurants.

But the hotel’s Italian restaurant Cento can’t be missed, with a menu of classic dishes.

I’m still thinking of its rich lobster ravioli and spinach gnocchi.

Then head to the hotel’s concept cocktail bar ESQ.

Its signature cocktails are unique, and too good to miss, from Sakura vermouth to Sweet Potato Shochu.

My favourite was Exotic Bliss with Japanese vodka, Chambord and raspberry purée.

Make sure to pop along to Botanica too, for tea.

Along with the restaurant and bar, there is a gym. And the hotel is an ideal base.

You can walk to the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert. South Kensington tube station is a five-minute stroll, while Heathrow Airport is just 15 miles away.
