    The service and attention we recieved from both the hotel and the restaurant staff was outstanding. It was my birthday and they really went out of their way to make it special for me. We were upgraded, and comp'd a bottle of champagne at dinner. We would definitely go back.

    We stayed for our 10th wedding anniversary and it was the most fantastic hotel. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the room was faultless, comfortable and beautiful. On arrival we were offered a complementary drink and a room upgrade. I can't wait to stay at Blakes again.

    The best thing about the hotel is its location. The rooms were clean.

    I didnt like the staff, they lack a professional approach. The rooms are very small and overpriced.

    Very classy. Very nice. Amazing decor. Nice staff. Nice touches like water outside room.

    Room was minute. Bath/shower was amazingly difficult to have a shower. Room was very dark - lighting poor. My air-con did not work.the lift was small.

    The staff tried to be considerate

    The superior king size room was 8x8. Much too small for two people. Most of the rooms are in need of repair and they are doing this, but except for the suites the rooms are ridiculously small and expensive for what you got. .

    Liked the concept as read on their website. Liked the out of the way location yet in S. Ken.

    Staff was cold and did not have a personality. Was not friendly. Welcome drink never arrived. Bathroom was marble and cold. Rain shower head was so high up on the top of the ceiling and the bathroom was so cold by the time the water hit my head it was cold. I chose a small room (only me) but far too small, no room for my suitcase, but fully booked so I could not mover rooms. Thin walls, could here people in and out of elevator. Could hear room service knocking on neighbor doors. Sheets were scratchy and there was a thin covering, not even a duvet. Hair dryer did not plug in bathroom, only room and no mirror to dry my hair. No full length mirror except in elevator! Asked to see other rooms for future, told could not choose, staff never asked how was my stay.

    The bed was very comfortable.

    There was nowhere to sit with a mirror to do make up. There was no plug sockets close enough to dry hair and see in a mirror, we had to ask housekeeping to find an extension lead. The lighting was far too dim. Appreciate that this gave a romantic ambiance but hopeless for getting ready to go out in the evening.
