What's on at The Rubens
Cairngorms, Highlands Scotland
We are inspired by our beautiful surroundings, deep in the Scottish Highlands. Each of our bedrooms showcase panoramic views of the spectacular landscape, while the verdant countryside is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from Golden Eagle and Osprey to Red Deer Stag and Pine Martin, as well as an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees.
"Located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we offer a boutique retreat in an atmosphere of Victorian elegance, overlooking verdant, private residential gardens.
A short walk from the hotel are world-renowned attractions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the Royal Albert Hall, alongside Kensington Palace and Gardens in Hyde Park. Also on our doorstep are the famous department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols and the many high-end fashion boutiques of Knightsbridge.
We are proud of our award-winning traditional Afternoon Tea and our beautiful Bar, which offers London’s most famous martinis. Our neighborhood, which is a leading art and design district, is echoed throughout the hotel in the original works of art by artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Erte, Ludwig Bemelmans, ‘Peanuts’ cartoon creator Charles M. Schulz, British cartoonist JAK and French caricaturist Sem.
We are wholly committed to sustainability: we use locally sourced produce for our menus, conduct food waste management procedures, have eliminated single-use plastics, and operate entirely without paper.
I have been General Manager of this beautiful townhouse hotel, which was recently recognised with a Forbes Five-Star rating, since 2012 and genuinely consider each member of my team to be part of my Egerton family. My team are chosen for their instinctual desire to care for our guests, including our adored canine visitors. We are here to welcome guests to experience the hotel and all the wonderful places that surround us."
- Michelle Devlin, General Manager
