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 was the second time we have stayed at the Sanctuary House Hotel and we absolutely love it! It is in a great location right near Westminster Abbey and walking distance to Big Ben, The London Eye and lots more. The rooms are lovely and the whole hotel as a real homely feel.

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

Ideal location for seeing the sights in London. Steps away from Tube station (which for us was key). Short walking distance to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, London Eye, Parliament Square. A nice easy stroll past 10 Downing Street to Trafalgar Square. Walkable to Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, and Theatre District. Normal size rooms by European standards (i.e., smallish) but well... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. We loved this place. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I thought the bed was great...much better than most hotels. Our room was small but clean and modern. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and located in the pub attached to the hotel. It is a close walk... More
