Was down in London as a friend was running the marathon and we wanted somewhere to watch the Scottish Cup semi final between Rangers and Dundee United. The staff in the Wellington were very accommodating and changed one of the TVs for us so we could see it. Spent a few hours in here and would recommend the pub as... More

With a warm, friendly welcome, a beautiful historic building and a very high standard of personal service, The Wellington at Waterloo is genuinely one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at. Mine was a booking at short notice prior to a job interview, and I really cannot praise the hotel highly enough. The hotel team were great and really... More

A short notice booking for two nights and we were extremely happy with ALL the facilities it had. Our room (18) was clean, comfortable and although at the front, noise was not at all a problem to us. We stayed on a Thursday and Friday night. As we walked in, our first impression was that we had made a good... More

Made a booking through email with mark. Who is a true Londoner and gent. It's literally a two minute walk from the hotel to the London eye. Everywhere is accessible by the tube, which is across the road. A good price in relation to prices in regards for location. Again mark the manager will accommodate any needs you have. And... More

Went here for dinner and didn't realise it was part of a chain with The Bear and Staff and possibly most other ye olde London pubs. Food is good,large serves average price of 12 pounds a main. Desserts around 5 pounds. Service is excellent.
