I booked the Royal Horseguards for a surprise weekend for my husband's birthday.. what can I say? From the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. We were made to feel special and pampered. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and a special thanks for Matthias Kussner who went the extra mile for us. The location of the hotel... More

We experienced an excellent family stay in this hotel. The adjoining rooms were perfect for our party. We were greeted at the door and early check-in was not a problem for the hotel when we arrived very early after travelling from Glasgow. Hotel is within walking distance of Covent Garden, Leicester Square, the list goes on.... Rooms were immaculately clean,... More

Booked a night here direct with the hotel for a Deluxe Double bed room, arrived and was given a room on the 9th floor, room 903, if the bed is really a double then I must have an emperor bed at home, the room was tiny and the bed smaller still, on asking to be changed they did give us... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief but luxurious stay in this 5 star hotel. We were treated as special guests throughout our stay. The breakfast was outstanding and service first class. The rooms were spotlessly clean and well furnished. Everything about this hotel signifies opulence and finery. The location is also fabulous and we walked to the Victoria palace theatre to... More

The stay at the hotel is a pure pleasure, with everything from friendly staff, the warm and welcoming lobby area, beautiful room, in my case overlooking the Thames and London eye. The breakfast is also super and best of all is that this castle-looking hotel is located in the heart of London, perfect for the morning run alongside the river... More

My husband son and i stayed at the Royal Horseguards hotel for 5 nights in September 2014. The hotel was amazing, the staff were at all times courteous helpful and friendly. Our room was lovely, spacious and inviting. The breakfast was delicious with a huge variety of cold and hot dishes, nothing was too much trouble, the staff were most... More

Went for afternoon tea with my partner on 26/9. All I can say is this place was exquisite. The tea was delicious, scones were warm and fluffy and the service was first rate. I always have afternoon tea when visiting London and would highly recommend the Royal Horseguards. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!

From the moment the Doorman opened the door for us until we left we couldn't fault the service, the room or the food. We spent two nights here and would most certainly return. Trafalgar square was a 10 minute stroll and the theaters were only 15 minutes away.

My stay in this hotel was a wonderful experience. Service is impeccable (real attention to detail, especially from Mo) and it is superbly situated within walking distance from the Embankment, Strand, Covent Garden, Mayfair and Oxford St. The international power sockets in the rooms was a nice touch, along with the sound and TV system (even in the bathroom, you...

I wanted to have Afternoon Tea in London but I have heard disappointing stories of the big name hotels that offer it. We chose the Royal Horseguards because it is a bit less 'gimmicky' and we were very pleased. The whole experience was perfect, I had a lovely birthday tea. The varied selection of sandwiches and cakes were well presented... More
