Wow! To Katy and Arnaud, Thank you so much for this unbelievable stay and your unforgettable hospitality. This Hotel is a real Gem with some amazing Historic value and a wonderful location. Our room, The King River View was a prefect room to spend the night with the London Eye right across the way. The magical journey we made to to get the Hotel was ended by outstanding customer service with a smile and although we could not appreciate the full amenities of the Hotel, we enjoyed the quietness. Thank you Team for a wonderful stay and hope to see you again.

Our stay at the Royal Horseguards was very good I must say, the staff were exceptional and the rooms were very clean. However on check in I was charged an extra £50 for something I still have no idea exactly what it was. When I emailed the Hotel I received no reply and I find this rather annoying.

My tip is, don't stay ANYWHERE else in London if you can possible afford this hotel. I have never ever experienced customer service like this anywhere in the world. Tiny niggles are just ironed out in a second, and they are really trying their hardest to make the hotel both safe and hospitable during the second lockdown ...

My husband and I had a really lovely stay at the Horseguards. The moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. We had a great room on the eighth floor with an outstanding view of the river Thames. We were looked after very well by the very attentive staff. The breakfast was delicious with a good menu choice. We will definitely be staying again in the future.
