The first thing to say about Blakes is that it is not a 5 star hotel, no matter how it describes itself as one. It just doesn't have that level of luxury. It's a very good four star, but with some very obvious problems (leaving aside the location in the far west). First, the rooms are very small, bordering on the pokey. And dark. I could walk down side of the bed, or open my suitcase, but not both. Second, it is a converted row of houses; which makes it a rabbit warren to navigate. I kept taking the stairs because I couldn't find the lift. The hotel doesn't do signs apparently. Third, you have to lug your case up a steep flight of stairs to get to reception. Fourth, the security is poor. You are given an old-fashioned ward lock key, which may be charming but means I couldn't lock my door from the inside; and it's very easy to forget the fact that you have to lock the door when you leave the room. Fifth, the bathroom fittings come from another era. I hated the high sided 'an accident waiting to happen for the over sixties' bath (which I didn't need as I prefer showers, but nobody asked me which I preferred) and worse one of those small shower curtains on a circular rail, which feels cold and clammy when your body touches it. Worse still, there's no mixer or thermostat. So you run the hot tap for a few minutes and then the cold, to get (eventually) the temperature you want. The hot tap was only hot in the early morning, for the rest of the day it was merely warm. The staff are mostly very good (special mention to Pedro the waiter, excellent service), but when I came down to breakfast at 0745 on the first morning there was nobody to greet me outside the restaurant (except for the ghastly and inappropriate Musak); and nobody inside, except that is for two waiters who were engaged in the most tremendous row at the tops of their voices (one apparently didn't think much of the other's character, integrity, skill or general attitude; the other objected violently to this slander). The embarrassed guests (who were being ignored while the row went on and on; stopped for a brief break; and then restarted, twice) sat waiting, with not even a menu to pretend to read (someone had forgotten to put them out). Eventually, I got bored and put a stop to it, otherwise, they would still be at it. The restaurant manager finally arrived (oblivious to the near murder which I averted), but still no menus, so just I ordered two poached eggs; which arrived on one little square of toast (which for eight quid seems a little mean). Pity there was no salt on the table (just two pepper mills), nor sugar, nor sweeteners: just some upturned glasses that somebody had forgotten to turn over. I found out later there were newspapers available, but of course, as the restaurant was deserted (0745 remember) and there was nobody to show me to a seat, give me a menu, a salt shaker, or a newspaper, I went without. Eventually, I counted six staff on duty in the restaurant (which accounts for the price of the poached eggs) but when one young and frustrated guy went up to the manager's station to get a menu, he was rebuffed by an aggrieved manager. So, five star it isn't. If the supervisors can ever get those waiters under control and themselves to turn up on time, or even before their guests arrive, maybe they will get to the top of four star. Finally, the food is very good, except for the challenge I set the chef at lunch to cook a medium rare burger. Failed. It came back medium, with Pedro's apologies: 'elf&safety' of course.

I recently spent a week at The Blake in London and am considering staying again when I'm back in a month.mThe staff and services won me over. The most exceptional employee who was kind, empathetic, professional and worked hard under some distressing situations is Susana Pereira. Susana was/is fantastic and made my stay so much warmer and comfortable than it could have been. Susana went above and beyond her role at The Blake to accommodate me. I appreciated it extremely. Anyone choosing The Blake as their home away from home in London, Susana is the exception in making you feel welcome and doing jobs way above her pay grade. She is amazing!

The hotel was fantastic in all aspects from the booking process through to check out, we could not fault the hotel at all. It is super romantic and a very easy place to be in. It has uber luxury and style throughout and it is shame to live in London otherwise we would stay there more often.

We have stayed a couple of times and it is now our favourite hotel in London. We love the quaint area, away from the crowds. The staff are very friendly and nothing seems too much trouble. The decor is just to our taste, and it feels like a home, rather than a hotel. We haven't eaten dinner there yet, but breakfast is tasty, with lots of healthy options. We can't wait to go back.

I choose to stay at boutique properties all over the world this is one of the best. They cover all the amenities you would except from a larger hotel, (great restaurant and bar) coupled with the intimacy and customer care of the best private residence. In summary I loved it and will be back for a longer stay!
