We Booked this hotel as a surprise my dad's 70th. The location is excellent and we were able to get nearly everywhere on foot. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel looks amazing when you walk in. The rooms are spacious and have all you need although the Wi-Fi wasn't great. We had told them it was dad's birthday... More

Wonderful hotel with an incredible view over the Thames and London Eye. We stayed here for one night over the bank holiday weekend and I wish it could have been more. Friendly staff, beautiful room, excellent varied choice for breakfast! A must if you are planning a stay in London!

Great expanse of a parade ground, lovely buildings around it and very patient horses. Just part of our heritage and just has to be seen. Best seen in the daylight. Watch out for guards at entrance and horses, perfect behaviours from both.

Not only does it have a fascinating history now it offers lush accommodations, fabulous food and admirable service. The bar is a a great place to sit and have a cocktail and enjoy the hors d'oeuvres early in the evening but also to... More

During our recent trip we spent the last two nights at the Royal Horseguards. All in all, it was a good stay with a few glitches. The Good: The hotel really could not be better located (at least for us). You can walk so many places - Trafalgar is just down the street as is Parliament/Big Ben and Somerset House.... More

In a group of ten business people had drinks and sandwiches in the lounge - ideal setting private, elegant and reserved and created a great impression on our guests. Honestly comparing the price of business venues to meet in London, compared to rooms to hire, this was modestly the least expensive of all.

We had afternoon tea here for a special occasion and we're well and truly spoilt. The food was dainty and tasty and more sandwiches and scones were available if wanted. The staff were really friendly and attentive.

We cannot thank Mr Robert Hemsing and his colleagues for making our stay so memorable and special. The Hotel is beautifully decorated and the warmth of the staff shines through, nothing too much trouble. We will always remember our stay with you and would just love to see it all again.

The hotel is excellent. I have got a good deal including a very good breakfast buffet and a free upgrade to an executive room. It is very nice hotel with excellen first class service. To be recommended especially in summer when deals are offered.

We stayed at this hotel in August this year, and was very impressed. The hotel is very grand and staff were fantastic. The location is fantastic, walking distance to everything. We couldn't fault this hotel at all, rooms were beautiful, food was excellent and service was great. We will definitely return to this hotel.

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.
