Blakes Hotel

Blakes Hotel

*****

Blakes Hotel – the very name conjures up a whole era of modern decadence.

Highlights:

  • Discreet South Kensington address; star-studded guestbook

  • Romantic haute cuisine restaurant

Smith extra

Blakes truffles and macaroons, and complimentary Continental breakfast
