Aubrey at The Doyle, A hidden gem of Kensington

I discovered the Kensington Hotel, part of the Doyle Collection, a couple of months back. What I loved about the hotel was its hidden location in South Kensington and beautiful breathtaking interiors which make you want to sit there for hours and relax.

I had the Afternoon Tea one working afternoon when I wasn’t booked in for too many meetings and had the opportunity to finish my work in a lovely surrounding. The service is impeccable and the scones which are unusually served with lemon curd (yum!) were out of the world. I started with an English breakfast tea followed by a latte at the end – the texture of which was perfect and with the right level of espresso.

The desserts were delicious and unique. I tried the lemon tart and chocolate mousse cake – both of which were fresh and a great compliment to the menu. I have to admit in boutique hotels, The Kensington Hotel, a composition of lovely ambience, great service and excellent quality of food including the sandwiches is a hidden gem of London which I would highly encourage to Afternoon Tea enthusiasts to try.
