Hotel Rating: Cheval Gloucester Park, Kensington, London SW7

Cheval Gloucester Park is part of the Cheval Collection, which comprises nine luxury all-apartment residences in London and three in Edinburgh, and reopened in February 2020 after a two-year, multi-million pound refurbishment. The latest property in the collection, Lexham Gardens by Cheval Maison, opened in July last year.

Cheval Gloucester Park can be booked for any length of stay and has 98 fully serviced apartments spread over ten floors. Guests can choose from a one, two or three bedroom apartment or one of three five bedroom penthouses – Gloucester, Cromwell and Kensington – located on the upper floors.

A two-minute walk from Gloucester Road underground station (Piccadilly, Circle and District lines) and just ten minutes from South Kensington, the Cheval Gloucester Park is a perfect home away from home for families, couples and solo travelers exploring the West and the Centre explore London.

Why stay here

The recent multi-million pound refurbishment is evident at Cheval Gloucester Park and the reception area impresses with unique design features, furniture and artworks on display. Facilities also include a private 12-seat cinema and lounges on the ground floor, ideal for a few hours of reading and relaxing.

However, there is one main reason guests should book here – and that is the apartments themselves. We stayed in a huge two bedroom superior apartment which had a wow factor from the moment we walked in.

When I was traveling with family members – my sister, niece and nephew – there was easily enough space for all of us to relax in. The master bedroom and twin bedroom are en-suite and the lounge/dining area has a large sofa, comfortable single seats and tables and chairs for dining. Also in the lounge was a huge wide screen TV which was ideal for a movie night with my ten year old nephew.

The beds in the rooms were ultra-comfortable and the bathrooms have Bulgari accessories and soft bathrobes. Along with a welcome basket (tea, coffee, milk, crisps and shortbread) these luxurious touches were great.

Design wise everything in the apartment was of a very, very high standard. From the furniture to the illustrated books, the curation was top notch. So much so that my sister described the lounge as “something out of the ordinary”. mad Men“. She was right, you could definitely see Don Draper living here enjoying Lucky Strike and Old Fashioned.

The Kitchen at Cheval Gloucester Park

to eat and drink

One of the great things about staying at a “apartment hotel‘ is the option to eat ‘at home’ if you wish. Our two bed apartment had a huge kitchen fully equipped with an oven and all the pots, pans and utensils needed to cook. There is also a dishwasher so you don’t even have to scrub the pots.

If you prefer to have dinner delivered to your apartment, you can order through the room service Website. Enter the accommodation code (details are in the room) to see which restaurants you can order from. A quirky design in the apartment is a “delivery closet” that is accessible from outside the front door for staff and also from inside for guests. Your food will be brought right here.

Guests who don’t want to cook or order can even book a private chef to cook in the apartment with the concierge. Cheval Collection works with La Belle Assiette to offer the service. When dining out there are many places within walking distance that suit all budgets.

On the go: things to see and do

If you’re a fan of London’s museums then you’re in luck – you’re just a short walk away South Kensington‘s “Museum Mile”. Walk ten minutes down Cromwell Road and you will find three of London’s most popular tourist attractions: the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Also within half an hour’s walk are the Design Museum near Kensington High Street and the Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road.

Shoppers can get their fashion fix in Knightsbridge, Sloane Square and Kensington High Street. For a day out walking or cycling, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Holland Park are also close by.

The judgment

You don’t have to be Don Draper or a 1960’s Manhattan advertising executive to appreciate the work that went into the design and decor of Cheval Gloucester Park. In order to get an honest opinion, you should definitely ask the youngest members of our tour group. When we asked my nephew how he would rate the apartment out of 10, his answer was emphatic: “12/10”. My niece, a typical TikToking 18 year old, doesn’t really like hanging out with her little brother, mom and uncle. But even she was impressed. One of the first things she did was share a TikTok tour of the apartment and tell her buddies where she was. Enough said.
