    Default Kensington Hotel changes

    The former Rydges Hotel housing the Polo Bar is now renamed Hotel London Kensington, (run by the Melia group).

    Along the road, Olive's Bar has become a bit confused, with the March 2012 picture and May 2011 review relating to a different hotel. The bar (as seen in the April 2012 pictures) is actually in The Bailey's Hotel which, although part of the Millennium Group, is quite distinct from the listed and nearby Millennium Gloucester Hotel.

    Please change the name to Olives Bar @ The Bailey's Hotel and the address to 140 Gloucester Road London, SW7 4QH. Note it has lost the apostrophe in its name, which seems to have sneaked into the hotel name without anyone noticing! Please also delete the second weblink, which is out of date, and I don't know if you can do anything about the misleading photo/review.

    Olives Bar does have its own street entrance and probably qualifies for a listing while the cocktail bar in the Millennium Gloucester (Humphrey's Bar) is in the depths of the hotel so I wouldn't include it.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    All done, thanks. Are the olives green, black or both?

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    I have no doubt that the "mixologist" would use the correct olive according to the cocktail, but they don't come with beer! Could you hide the March 2012 picture of the unrelated modern hotel please?

    Sorry one other - the Polo Bar is still the Polo Bar but now in London Hotel Kensington.
