This hotel is fantastic, beautiful building, decor. I found it had a nice homely feel. The staff were fantastic and plentiful. You really need to give this hotel a try, I will certainly be returning. As a Travel Agent this hotel was faultess. They even have their own Bee hotel on the balcony on the 3rd Floor which is - to me - a unique selling point. If they can care this much about the environment you can guess how the guests are treated. This to me is 5 star all the way. You guys will not be disappointed.
St James Park is the Tube station which takes you through to Victoria and then into town. It is within walking distance. We walked from Marble Arch right past Buckingham Palace through a leafy street next to the Park. Buses are regular as are tubes. St James Park Tube is a 5 minutes walk from the hotel with easy access to Westminster, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. I didn't get chance to eat in the fabulous looking restaurant.
The Balcony on the 1st Floor is fabulous too especially in the summer if you would like a cheeky wine or cocktail.
A wedding was taking place when I was there and the bride looked stunning having pictures taken in the lush leafy surround at the front of the hotel.
Winston Churchill also held a historic meeting here in 1940. It was here in the Caxton Bar that one of the infamous 'Cambridge Five' handed over secret paper to his Russian Counterpart.
