Visitors to the capital have praised London in the TripAdvisor 2014 Travellers' Choice awards. The city scooped 22 gongs across five categories - in total, more than New York, Rome and Barcelona combined.
The awards are based on visitor reviews posted on the travel website, and honour the world's most outstanding properties and service. The categories include Top Hotels, Bargain, B&Bs and Inns, Family, Luxury, Romance, and Small Hotels.
The Milestone Hotel in Kensington was awarded the UK's Top Hotel, and also ranked 15th in the world. The boutique hotel boasts stunning views of Kensington Palace and Gardens, plush interiors and two members of staff to each guest, but such luxury doesn't come cheap - and it's prices aren't for the faint-hearted. Rooms in the Grade II listed property range between £450 and £1,373 per night, with breakfast and afternoon tea coming in at £25 and £36 respectively. But for the 908 people who have ranked the hotel on TripAdvisor, the price certainly seems to worth it.
