Excellent breakfast with numerous choices - something for everyone: meats, eggs, pastries, porridge, toast, fruit, yogurt. No reason to walk away hungry from here. Nice contemporary setting.

I was staying at the hotel with some Chinese customers (10 in total) and we booked a table for an evening meal at the restaurant. The food was great and the service impeccable. The hotel certainly gave my customers a good example of great British Food and excellent service.

My partner and I visited for a three course meal with wine, as part of a travelzoo voucher. We would have paid full price! The staff were fantastic and very hospitable. The food was faultless and the timing of serving was impeccable. Very friendly staff who were happy to make recommendations on dishes. Would definitely return again! Thank you!

I had several great meals in City Cafe whilst staying in the hotel. All were excellent and very reasonably priced. The haddock fish cakes were fabulous, as was the chicken supreme. I also loved the carafes of wine which are ideal for solo (yet thirsty!) travellers. The service is excellent (although some of the servers do struggle with their English)... More

I ordered an extra glass of prosecco which set me back £7.50! But apart from that, the staff were really good and the restaurant... More

Coming back late from Wimbledon, we needed a non-pub food restaurant. Given our location at the Doubletree Westminster, we were severely limited by choices. So, we ended up eating here two nights in a row. Was it great? No. Was it acceptable? Yes! The first night two of our party only had salads. Not so good. However three of us... More

We decided to have food here for a family birthday and are not sorry we did. We had plans to go elsewhere in the area so this place was perfect + we got a 3 course menu offer for £17 per person. They will only allow 4 people in the party on this offer though so anymore and you may... More
