Located in Kensington Gardens by Hyde Park, Thistle Kensington Gardens is one of the rare four star hotels in London that can boast royal neighbours. In fact, the 'house next door' to Thistle Kensington Gardens hotel is Kensington Palace, former out-of-town retreat of William III, birthplace of Queen Victoria and, more recently, home of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Across the road are the Kensington gardens from which we take our name. These gardens were the pet project of Queen Anne. And from many of our recently refurbished bedrooms, including 37 Executive rooms, you'll enjoy superb views over her magnificent creation. London traffic wardens are notoriously diligent, so you'll be glad to learn we have on-site car parking available at a modest additional charge.

At Thistle Kensington Gardens you have the option to dine right through the day and on into the night. Modern, relaxed and with lots of natural daylight, our Restaurant has an enticing menu featuring modern British and European dishes, complemented by an extensive wine list.

Meanwhile, our Lounge Bar serves a wide range of drinks and snacks in informal surroundings, perfect between meetings, after work or before dinner. And if you're starting early, or staying up late, our full room service menu means you can always get hold of a drink, snack or light meal, even out of hours.
