We are a Swedish family and we were staying with our children and their paternal grandparents at the Double Tree Hilton at Westminster and ate often there, ( ie not just breakfast.) Two of our three children are allergic to milk protein and one is also allergic to soya products.This makes travelling and eating out rather difficult.We informed the staff... More

I made a reservation at the "City Cafe" DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London – Westminster following the purchase of vouchers from Travelzoo, as reviewers on the Tripadvisor web site had rated it highly.The restaurant is not in the theatre district...

Wonderful. We've had afternoon tea at several London venues and this is right up there with the best. Contemporary surroundings and extremely attentive staff. Offered more items several times. The food is excellent and served beautifully on a 'bookcase' type stand. We will definitely go back.

Located inside the Doubletree hotel. We had 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner at the restaurant. The buffet English breakfasts were excellent. We had one of the 3 course dinners which consisted of a soup, the main of chicken and a dessert of ice cream. All food was excellently prepared.

Organised through Travel zoo, the meal was a deal of 3 courses with Prosecco for 2 at £39.00. It was quite empty in the restaurant at first but nice and warm and comfy. Service was very good, food was lovely, wine was not too dry, just chilled enough and tasty. Not rushed and atmosphere was good. A generally nice experience.

Very good meal in the City Café which was of a high quality. We were pleased with the service we were given and were happy, after a long day, to be able to enjoy our meal then retire to our room. Would recommend to other travellers either resident or non-resident.

I came here on a Monday morning, to treat my cousin to a champagne breakfast for her birthday. The breakfast was a continental buffet style and had everything you would want for a great start to the morning. The staff were extremely friendly and professional and the champagne was the perfect touch. I'm sure I'll come back here at some... More

Visited on a Saturday night with a travel zoo deal for three courses and a bottle of prosecco. Lots of choice to say it was part of the deal and the food was gorgeous. Service was good and would definitely visit 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.
