It's overwhelming trying to decide on a hotel in London, but we were lucky that my brother recommended this hotel to us. There isn't really anything to find fault with here: it has a bit of "old world charm," it's in a great location just steps from monuments like Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, and attractions farther afield are accessible...

After a brief visit to London, we stayed in the sanctuary hotel, I would reccomed it for the good service, wonderful location and a really good pub downstairs. I will surely go back. Very near theatres and landmarks.

I've visited Westminster a number of times on business and always thought to find a place to eat elsewhere. That said I love the Westminster environment it has so much to offer you can spend more than a day visiting this part of London alone. So to find a good venue that offers good grub at a good price (for... More

Stayed for 1 night to celebrate partners 30th, this trip was a surprise straight after his birthday trip to Spain! The room was very pretty, with the lovely touch of takeaway cups for tea & coffee and use of a cafetiere!

The hotel was close to Big Ben, London Eye, House of Parliament. Great pubs around the neighborhood. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful to all my needs. Rooms were very clean and large. I recommend this hotel for comfort and relaxation from a full day of touting the City of London.

The location is excellent, the hotel was comfortable and clean, the staff were pleasant and helpful, the food was good and the pub was typically old English, lively but not noisy. The shower fooled me like Sandi W and when we rang reception for help a young man very quickly came to our room to explain. What more can I... More

The location of the hotel was fantastic & convenient as we were there to see a show. The room was clean & modern although a little small but we didn't spend much time in there, so it wasn't a problem. The pub was great & my hubby loved the choice of ales. Great atmosphere. Would def stay again.

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.
