Cheval Harrington Court
Serviced Apartment in London
4-Star Serviced Apartments
Ideally situated in the heart of Kensington, Cheval Residences’ most recent opening, Cheval Harrington Court is perfectly located for getting around London.
Cheval Residences has eight serviced apartments in London offering 5-star service, ranging from Townhouses and Mews houses to luxury Penthouses and regular apartments. All their properties are centrally positioned in nice neighbourhoods and close to Tube Stations to make getting around the city as easy and hassle free as possible.
Having recently celebrated its first anniversary in June, Cheval Harrington Court still has that new feel to it with modern fittings and amenities and an open-plan design and wooden flooring that works well with its contemporary neutral décor. The large sash windows ensure that plenty of natural light pours in to the rooms.
Each of the 50 apartments in Harrington Court can be booked for any length of time to suit you, from a one night stay to one week, one month or even 12 months.
If you are visiting London for an extended stay, serviced apartments are a great alternative to staying in a hotel, particularly if you want to simply blend in and go about your daily routine as a local. At Harrington Court you have pretty much everything you need. A dedicated 24-hour Concierge is on hand, be it for arranging some theatre tickets to finding a suitable restaurant in The Wet End at short notice or simply helping you navigate your away around the city.
Every apartment is fitted with an entry phone for added security, is fully air conditioned and has complimentary Wi-Fi so you can work or stream your favourite show or movie online. A flat screen television in the living room and bedroom with Freeview will keep you and/or the kids entertained. There is a daily maid service during the week and your bed linen and towels will be changed twice a week. For those of you who want to keep fit whilst you are in the city, you have access to a nearby Fitness First gym on Harrington Road.
All the apartments come with a fully-fitted kitchen and the Nespresso machine was my favourite appliance. I also like the fact that you get a welcome hamper from Abel & Cole so you don’t have to run out to the shops straightaway. Mine was stocked with muesli granola, fresh bread, jam, marmalade, nuts, biscuits, Nespresso capsules and even a bottle wine along with a couple of bottles of water. The fridge had some fresh milk for breakfast the next day and because they were celebrating their first Birthday, I also received a delicious box of Maître Choux patisseries, which was a lovely touch! In fact Harrington Court has partnered with Maître Choux as they have a new patisserie which has just opened next door.
The bathrooms are white, modern and well kitted out, mine was particularly spacious and had a walk in shower. And you don’t need to worry about packing those little extras as all the bathrooms come with Arran Aromatics toiletries. The separate carpeted bedroom was cosy and the double bed extremely comfortable, ensuring a restful night’s sleep. There is a double closet and a personal safe so you can keep your valuables locked away.
All in all Cheval Harrington Court is the perfect home away from home in which to explore London if you are over with the family and fancy having your own spacious apartment close to some well known museums and a few of London’s fashionable shopping streets. The West End is easy to get to and there are some great restaurants close by such as Obica, which serves perhaps the best pizza outside of Napoli, or at least in London!
