The somewhat industrial-looking hotel building actually hosts modern and comfortable guest rooms consisting of simple wooden and cream decor, spiked with the chain's distinctive shade of purple. Each room comes equipped with amenities including air conditioning, complimentary newspapers, work desk and lamp, hairdryer, ironing board and WiFi internet access, and there is also an ensuite bathroom with shower and WC.

The contemporary Thyme restaurant is open throughout the day and serves a wide menu to cater for all taste buds, with separate breakfast, snack and kids' menus all available. The aesthetic is contemporary, pared down and elegant, with pots and bric-a-brac dotted around the walls, and typical fare ranges from British favourites like steak or pies to pizza, salads and international dishes. The neighbouring bar is a sleek and stylish affair serving snacks and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and is the perfect place to wind down if you don't feel like venturing out into nearby Kensington. 24 hour room service is also on offer.
