"The Red Carnation Hotel Collection have partnered with Danish company ACT.Global to use its proprietary ACT CleanCoat technology. The transparent and odorless substance can be applied to any surface and is activated by sunlight. Once the photocatalytic reaction begins, it automatically decomposes microbes like bacteria, viruses, airborne mold spores, and chemical compounds, in addition to purifying the air.

Our Inspector's view
Formed from three red-brick Victorian townhouses, this venerable hotel in affluent Kensington offers old-school service in the elegant, wood-panelled dining room, right down to the roast-of-the-day trolley.

About the area
The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.
London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
