Booked this last minute for my wife's birthday and had a fabulous stay. The hotel is traditionally styled and right on the riverbank, opposite from the London Eye, 10 minutes walk across the bridge from Waterloo station. Staff were friendly and courteous. From the hotel, it is an easy 5 minutes walk up to Trafalgar square and then from there... More

This was my second visit to the restaurant, previously I had dinner. This time it was lunch from a special menu, each course had three choices and a glass of prosecco. Once again I was not disappointed and would definitely return again. The restaurant is nicely decorated in rather an understated way, with a lovely terrace. What makes this restaurant... More

I love The Royal Horseguards and have stayed there twice before with my daughter on our trips to London. This time It was my husband and I on a London trip to take part in the London Cycle Ride. So looking rather dishevelled after 16 miles on the bikes we checked in. We were greeted by charming Nathalie who after... More

I booked Afternoon Tea as a birthday treat for my mum and it was superb from start to finish; great atmosphere, excellent food/treats beautifully presented and staff were very attentive. Couldn't have asked for better and would certainly recommend this to friends! I hope to make a return visit in the near future. Thank you for making this so special!!!

This hotel is in the prime location for the central London attractions. My wife and I were in London for a summer weekend break taking in a show, dinner, a trip on the Thames, the Eye and a touch of shopping so this was perfect for us. Not the cheapest hotel in London, but we were spoiling ourselves, and you... More

We stayed at the Royal Horse Guards hotel for our anniversary. We wanted something which was in easy reach of the key sites as well as being something a bit more than your normal hotel. Royal Horse Guards did not disappoint. The room was very comfortable, quiet and well equipped. My wife was very excited by the hair dryer and... More

We stayed here for a weekend in July. Beautiful hotel and very impressive looking. Great location as well. Staff are very attentive and can't do enough for you. My room wasn't ready at 3 but they gave me tea and drinks for my son as well as some free chocolates. My bags were taken to my room. We had a... More

Went a few years back for a research presentation down in London. Great location, fantastic experience. Good food and service was pretty decent as well. Rooms were beautiful, presentation was fantastic, probably one of the nicest hotels I have stopped in. Would love to go back one day.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
