The Laslett is a hip new hotel in Notting Hill, West London, that looks spanking — though blemish a aspect and it falls apart.

It occupies 5 stucco-fronted townhouses and has many of a accoutrements of a self-consciously smart hang-out: a raise of Monocle mags here, dumb art there (a framed span of shoes), dining room tables that pierce adult and down on a hulk screw, scribbled signage — solely that no one seems to be unresolved out many when we arrive on a Wednesday evening.

There are 51 rooms. Ours looks out a behind during a grotty no-man’s-land where bags of rubble, damaged drainpipes and even rejected atmosphere conditioning units contest for space.

So we pull a fate and combine on a inside, that is slick, with high ceilings, wealthy duvet and pillows, and a walk-in mini bar.

The lavatory is manly chic, with Neal’s Yard smellies. We design all this and some-more for a room costing £285 a night, though breakfast.

What we do not design is usually one bedside list and an roughly finish deficiency of healthy light.

We precipitate to a Henderson Bar (named after a owner of a Notting Hill carnival) and take a chair during one of a screw-top tables.

Dreadful electronic swat song does a best to hurt a evening, though we’re certain a staff like it.

I sequence a margarita, that takes an age to arrive and when it does something is badly wrong: it tastes like an orange appetite drink. That’s since a untimely barman-cum-waiter has used Grand Marnier rather than Cointreau and hasn’t given it half adequate lime.

What horrifies us many is a use of a eminent cook Sally Clarke’s name to column adult a sad menu.

There is clearly no correct kitchen, though some dishes have been bought in from Sally’s circuitously deli and exhilarated adult or plonked on a plate.

We start with potted Cornish crab, that comprises a small cone of thick butter with changed small crab inside. A male during a circuitously list has to ask regularly for his potion of booze to arrive, while we get charged for a potion we never had.

But all that was zero compared with a disorder during breakfast.

A distinguished-looking Frenchman wants some porridge and a crater of tea.

There’s no porridge and no tea, either, until he has asked for it 3 times. Who’s in assign here?

I sequence a breakfast pastries and what turns adult is one seared croissant, for that we am charged £4.

The Laslett is over-priced, over-hyped and under-achieving.
