For Foodies

You’re in for a treat if you have the chance to dine in Kensington. It seems to me that when I advise my guests at the hotel in Kensington that the choice of cuisine is infinite in this area. Whether you’re looking for an international or traditional experience, I can point you in the right direction.

Regular guests at our Kensington Hotel may well have noticed, even if they’re perhaps too polite to point it out, the fact that like many men of a certain age I seem to have to work harder to keep my weight under control. (more…)

The question of where to eat seems to be one of the most frequent to pop up among guests staying at the Kensington hotel where I work. There are other recurring enquiries, of course, but it seems as though everybody wants to know about good places to eat. (more…)

I know I say this quite often, but one of the best things about working in a hotel in Kensington is the variety of different lunch options I have each day. Never has the phrase ‘something for everyone’ been better encapsulated than in my borough’s choice of eateries. Whether you fancy a burger, fish and chips, a nice sit-down meal, world cuisine or simply a quick bite from a major-chain franchise, you will find it all in Kensington! (more…)

As I have probably told you, we get all sorts of people passing by the hotel in Kensington where I work. It’s really quite fascinating to discover just how different the human race can be, whether in terms of culture, beliefs or personal tastes – at least I am always enthralled by it! (more…)

One of the things I like best about this wonderful borough I was raised and now work in is the variety. Kensington goes beyond the stereotype of ‘upmarket Central London neighbourhood’ and truly embraces that other cliché: it genuinely does offer ‘something for everyone’! (more…)

As most of you will undoubtedly know, one of the main advantages of working at a hotel in Kensington is the diversity of nationalities and cultures you come into contact with. No other city quite rivals London for being a tourist destination – at least in my opinion – and working at the very heart of it (and in a hotel, no less!) gives me the opportunity to get to know guests from all over the world. It’s absolutely wonderful! (more…)

Kensington hotels in London tend to be filled with people that spend all day on their feet, whether they’re trawling Notting Hill for bargains for doing some window shopping on the high street. Like my mother always said, a good breakfast will set you up for the day – and our guests need the energy! That’s why I’ve picked my favourite breakfast and brunch spots from around Kensington to share with you: whether you’re looking for a full English, an American shortstack, or a light continental.

Lunch, anyone? One of the most common questions I get asked about is food. As one of the most popular Kensington hotels in London, the Regency gets its fair share of foodies passing through, and I’m always delighted to see them. These are the people who can sniff out a good truffle faster than any dachshund, and who know instinctively what wine goes with what fish. For me, a love of food indicates a love of life, company and new discoveries. Show me a belly that loves good food and I’ll show you a mind that loves adventure! (more…)
