    About

    The Rockwell is an independent hotel with an emphasis on understated contemporary style, impeccable levels of personal service and attention to detail. Each of the forty rooms has been crafted to create a relaxed atmosphere, whilst retaining an individual character which combines English tradition with contemporary styling. In addition to our well appointed bedrooms, we offer guests the use of generous spaces for eating, drinking and relaxing, including a large south facing landscaped garden. Situated in Kensington, many of the capitals best attractions are on our doorstep - Earls Court Stadium, Earls Court Olympia, Harrods department store, the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum as well as the shopping areas of Knightsbridge and Chelsea are all within walking distance. The Rockwell is also close to the wide green expanses of Holland Park and Hyde Park.
