My 8 year old daughter and I stayed for one night during the school holidays as a birthday treat. We were telephoned a few days before our stay, with the caller taking a genuine interest in the purpose of our stay and offering assistance with anything we needed. This gave me the opportunity to request my preferred room type which... More

My friend and I booked our pre-ballet Afternoon Tea based on their 2013 recommendation from afternoontea.co.uk . I'm not entirely sure why I had lower expectations than I have had at other hotels, but I admit that I did. I was wrong. First, when my friend went to book online the only option was 4:30pm and that was too late... More

My husband and I recently stayed for a couple of nights to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary. This long established delightfully old fashioned hotel was an absolute pleasure to stay in. The staff are the hotels best asset - well trained and totally customer focussed, making the guests feel important at all times. The hotel went to a great deal... More

I have stayed in a few hotels in London for business, and I have to say this one is my favourite. The hotel is exquisite; there was a lady playing a harp in the lobby when I came in, the bathrooms have televisions, you can connect your ipad to your room's soundsystem, etc etc. All these small touches really add...

We booked afternoon tea to finish off a planned trip to town to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. My husband has never been to high tea before whereas I have previously been to the Ritz some years ago. The staff at the Royal Horseguards were very attentive and welcoming. We felt very spoilt and the staff were aware of our... More

Stayed for one night ahead of an awards ceremony. Rooms very well presented, excellent size with extremely comfortable beds. A taste of luxury in the heart of London- rooms at the front have phenomenal views. Service excellent, couldn't fault it. Particular mention to the doorman, impeccably turned out, faultless service. Breakfast was very good, perhaps not truly exceptional, but it... More

Stayed at the hotel 6-9 April to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. Location, service and the whole ambience of the hotel were just perfect. We really hope to make this an annual visit as it would now be difficult to stay anywhere else...more offers please!

The hotel is well located and the staff is very friendly, mainly at the reception. The room was small, and clearly overpriced, as usually in London, but it was acceptable for what I already experience other times. What I think was the worst was the fact that there is no appropriate degree of acoustic insulation between rooms, so, although speaking... More
