This hotel is in the best location. Walk out the front door and take about 20 steps and you are nearly at Westminster Abbey. Everything else is within close walking distance - metro, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben. The staff were very helpful and would print out any directions that you required. It was extremely clean and had a night-time turndown... More

This hotel has to have been the best location that I have stayed at in London. Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and Big Ben were all within a 15 min walk. The buses were easy to navigate and the metro wasn't but a couple blocks away. The hotel staff has plenty of excellent recommendations to eat. When I checked out,... More

This hotel has lovely rooms that have an elegant five star look. The double deluxe room is spacious with a generous bathroom. The staff were lovely and highly efficient. The location is fantastic with Saint James Park metro less than 50 mtrs away, Parliament, London Eye and all the Westminster top attraction. I enjoyed my four night stay immensely!

Very classy hotel in great location. Easy walk to theaters and to Parliament and all the Westminister attractions. The room was very clean and fairly large, we had ordered flowers and they were absolutely beautiful. Staff was helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!

This place is in a great location in Westminster. We had a casual late dinner with London-brewed real ales. It's a classic London pub with lots of mirrors and high ceilings. Friendly enough though nothing to write home about

We had a great stay at the Sanctuary House Hotel. Rooms were very nice and clean, the bathroom was modern, and I wish we had instructions how to use the showerhead (but on the second day we figured it out). Breakfast was good, it was in the pub restaurant. My daughter said she really liked the Breakfast layout. Be prepared... More

Went looking for a pub to eat in and ended up here after most others seemed too crowded. This place seemed to be filled with locals. Found a table right away. My wife and I had pies and our daughter had a burger. Food was great! Service a little slow but not terrible. Also, prices are very reasonable. Great find... More
