About Robert Hargreaves
My whole life has been built around travel, so it's a real pleasure to be able to share some of those opportunities with you. I have had a long career in hotels and serviced apartments in the UK but now I just enjoy what I have always loved: travel. Favourite destinations include Koh Samui, Thailand; Palawan, Philippines; Luang Prabang, Laos; Dambulla, Sri Lanka and many, many more. My favourite food choices pretty much reflect where I love to go. As I am not always in London, I have some friends from the industry who look after my guests and my properties for me. Coming from the hospitality industry, quality of service is very, very important - especially with my luxury apartments - so we will take excellent care of you from the moment you first come into contact with us to the moment you leave London.
Why Robert Hargreaves chose Brompton & Hans Town
"when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford" Despite my love of travel, I also love returning to London. There is no better place to enjoy all of the excitement and opportunities of this great city than Knightsbridge, which also retains something of the village feel that the area once was.

What you see is not always what you get
The previous review was not available to me when I decided to rent this property. Some improvements were made with photos added to walls, but now there are no rugs. This is indeed a very cold and uninviting apt. One of the worst things is that the master bedroom is advertised as a queen bed, it is a double bed and therefor false advertising. There is only one coffee pot and it can only use one kind of capsule and that was not provided. The location is good, but as the apt faces the street very noisy.
All in all this was not a very good experience.
Many thanks indeed, Joyce, for taking the time to post a review. I was very sad to read that you did not enjoy your stay in all respects and was sorry that I did not hear from you about this at the time, as this could certainly have been addressed. You were absolutely right about the beds and my apologies for this - no misrepresentation was intended. I have corrected the listing for now and will replace the Double bed in the Master Bedroom with a lovely Queen size bed at the end of August 2016. I have already replaced both sofas, as they were getting a little tired, in my view and I have also had the apartment repainted. I really do appreciate the feedback and act on our guests' concerns to improve the apartment whenever this arises.
Great location but only coldly functional
The location could not have been better and the responsiveness of Ron and you were great. Only feedback that you might find useful relates to the condition of the apartment. Generally, it is worn and unwelcoming. Here is a checklist for your use or to consider:
• walls need painting...dirty or scraped in places. Needs color...the black/white scheme is stark and cold
• bathroom tiles need tuckpointing or replacement in places above sink, and chrome needs polish
• small bedroom closet needs cleaning out so it can be used as a guest closet to hang clothing
• laminated floors need cleaning or replacement with real wood...too many black stains
• rooms need color...pretty dreadful now. Add color prints for walls and some carpets on floors, some nice pillows for beds and couches . Right now it all looks cheap and dull. Rooms desperately need tables and table lamps for indirect lighting.
Now the overhead lights are too start and cold. You just do not want to spend time in this place...furniture is cheap and uncomfortable .
. Put some money, charm and comfort into the place and it would be worth the current charge.
Many thanks indeed for taking the time to write a review and you can be assured that we take all feedback very seriously and are constantly looking for ways to improve.
We really appreciate the very specific pointers here. I would have to say that this apartment has had a lot of very good comment in other places - including about the decor, which I believe is pretty clear from the photos of the apartment.
However, we do not rest on our laurels and you can be sure that we are working through this list, addressing them one by one, as we feel appropriate, whilst keeping that comparison with other reviews in other places, understanding that all reviews are highly subjective.
Once again, we really appreciate the time taken to review the stay. We will work hard to make sure that the next review here is more positive, in keeping with reviews elsewhere.
Knightsbridge is one of the most exclusive residential areas of central London and it's really not hard to see why. Some of the best stores in London are on your doorstep and Knightsbridge is also a very central spot for getting around the rest of this great city. If you enjoy museums, there are some of London's best in this area - just a short walk down Brompton Road for the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum. London is famous for it's parks and Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park (essentially one park) are in easy walking distance. However, Knightsbridge was once just a village outside London and it still retains some of the atmosphere from those earlier days in side streets of mews houses, garden squares and some lovely, very individual shops and restaurants. They can be a bit pricey but they are a unique experience.
