The Royal Horseguards provided excellent service from the moment that we arrived excluding one trip to the lounge area, which wasn't the best. Overall the hotel was excellent from the public areas to the dining room to the room. Since our inbound flight arrived at 7:30 AM we arrived at the hotel quite early and were able to leave our...

A lovely night here at The a Royal Horseguards, with the added treat of having a river view for both rooms. Thanks also for the Birthday Fudge left in both rooms due to birthday celebrations. Good centre hotel, well priced and lovely courteous staff,,who bent over backwards to help with any enquiry or request. Will be back

The Royal Horseguards is welcoming, inviting, comfortable, interesting, centrally located and well worth a visit. Do not overlook this hotel, nestled in the heart of Whitehall, so much to see, so much to do and nothing to complain about which is a rarity these days. Visit The Royal Horseguards, you won't be disappointed!

I love this hotel and have stayed here 3 times but this has to have been the worst experience so far. There were things I loved. My room was huge and view was beautiful. The bathroom was wonderful. The beds were comfy. It should have been the best time. The walls are a bit thin and I realize this was... More

Just returned from a trip to London and would recommend this hotel. Excellent staff service and very well priced for a price location in London. All of the main sites are within a very short walk so would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Went for afternoon tea with my daughter and her two little girls 6 and 8. The mini tea at £12 and baby mocha went down a treat as did the rest of the treats cakes and chocolate shaped biscuits. The girls loved it. I paid £24 for my daughter and myself. The service was impeccable and they kept coming round... More

My partner and I stayed for the weekend last September. The room was decorated with an elegant, classic decor and the bed was very comfortable. We had a TV situated in the bath tub which was great, although we were out and about for the majority of our stay so this sadly got neglected a little. We opted for bed... More

Best part of this hotel was it's fabulous location! We opted to pay more so we would have a view of the Themes - unfortunately because of the tall trees we were not able to see the Themes. I'm sure if you stayed in winter it would have been a great view. Would not pay up again. We had great... More

Dear Ro E, Thank you for your review regarding your recent experience at the hotel. We do have exceptional views from the hotel overlooking the River Thames, I am sorry that your view was obscured from the trees from the park below, I hope that you were able to see the London Eye sparkling through the leaves in the evening...
