Spent one night at the Royal Horseguards after a theatre trip, the location is excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly as usual ( we've stayed here a few times). A little disappointed on a couple of counts this visit. The air conditioner in our room was incredibly noisy and the lights outside very bright - we had an... More

Had a fantastic stay here. Hotel is lovely with a real 5 star factor. Rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated and I loved the tv in the bathroom! The hotel is located close to the river, Westminster and other sites which made it perfect for a weekend away. I would stay again.

.......query whether good value. This is undoubtedly a good hotel and must mention the excellent reception staff. Our room was spoilt by freshly spilt cream down the side of the valance on the bed and, despite repeated requests, was never dealt with. Try phoning Housekeeping and see if you can get an answer! Unfortunately, they didn't deliver the requested breakfasts... More

Stayed in this hotel with a tour group with grandchildren who have never traveled. They loved it, especially the breakfast. The hotel is close to all of the major sites and the tube. We walked to the Churchill War Room, Big Ben, The Eye, Trafalgar Square, all in one afternoon. It isn't cheap, but worth the money.

The Royal Horseguards is a great hotel & a fantastic location. I want to specifically mention the head concierge, Richard Williams, who was by far the best concierge we have had in any hotel. He did everything from dinner reservations, to tours, to play tickets, to walking around sites. He was also great to talk to & a pleasure to... More

Old fashioned English hotel that is posh without being stuffy. The hotel itself is in a quiet area near Scotland yard in the Whitehall area. It must be a well kept secret since both the Taxi booth staff (2 people who must have been directing traffic for thousands of tourists) at Heathrow Airport haven't heard of it and had to... More

Elegant and friendly service. The hotel used to be the old headquarters of Scotland Yard. It is centrally located to all the major tourist attractions so it was an easy walk to all the places we wanted to go(Trafalger Square,Buckingham Palace, Churchill War Rooms, theEye,etc.) There were many choices at breakfast, including English breakfast. We had a Deluxe Double room... More
