No detail is overlooked at this wonderfully relaxing property on the bank of the Thames. There are adjacent gardens. Easy walk to many attractions including Westminster Abbey, Horse Guards Parade to see the changing of the guard every morning, and across the bridge to the London Eye, a view of which we enjoyed nightly from our room.

I'm really really disappointed and upset of the service from your staff, first at our arrival we didn't get the right view we booked and the view is really bad, nobody helped as to to room with our luggage or accompanied us to the room, at the reception we have been advised to pay extra to get the river view...

I came here in March with my boyfriend for my 20th and was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a suite, which was beautifully decorated, clean and classy. Champagne also provided. (Boyfriend obviously excited about the TV in the shower!) Breakfast slightly overpriced at £20 each for what it was but no complaints as it was very tasty. Would love to... More

This was the first stop on our honeymoon and I don't think we could have stayed anywhere better. We had a huge room by european standards with large windows on the Thames across from the eye of London. The bathroom was also large and had a chromotherapy tub with a tv! The service was wonderful too! We were able to... More

In the perfect location along the river in a beautiful building (near the embankment pier and just two blocks from bustling Trafalger Square),this gem of a hotel treats you like royalty with superb customer service, rooms featuring classic English charm, and a delicious full English breakfast. Even traveling alone, I felt safe and pampered.

It was a fabulous location for sightseeing and dining. The staff were very gracious and helpful. The rooms were not large but the bathroom was spacious and everything was very clean and fresh. The afternoon tea was relaxing and very enjoyable. I would not recommend this for families of young children but it's great for teenagers who appreciate a nice... More

Great location, friendly, efficient staff, nothing was too much effort. Though we were not impressed with our table - it sat in the entrance between the lounge and lobby a bit of a thoroughfare, this was hugely disappointing, even the delightful glass of champagne didn't compensate. The food was mediocre, especially the pastries.

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days. Loved it! The room was clean. Bath amenities were great complete with heated floors! Concierge took care of all of our needs. He was able to get us tickets to two shows playing in the West End and a football game! Great location on the water one block from the tube.

The RHG is in a beautiful, old building facing the Thames. Our sunny, upgraded room had a view of the London Eye- very pretty at night. The room was small, but extremely clean and comfortable. The bed was hard, but a mattress pad was provided to solve the problem. We loved the heated bathroom floor and towel rack. Breakfast was... More

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
