Highly recommend this hotel. Close to Victoria Station in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Staff (which also is owner and familiy) pays high attention to their guests, and you feel welcomed and appreciated.

The Windemere exceeded all our wishes and expectations -- spotless, cozy, charming and great amenities. Many historic sites were within walking distance and transportation easily available. The staff were absolutely delightful and amazing in their knowledge and kindness. We hated to leave them! Eleni and Kieroi (many apologies for my spelling) were consummate professionals with warm hearts. They made us... More

We stayed at the Windermere Hotel on a personal vacation trip for which we wanted quiet nights and easy access to the underground from Heathrow and to the circle and district lines. The staff were all helpful and the rooms had comfortable beds; and the full English Breakfasts were great with the eggs made to order. A continental breakfast option... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel, which is about 5 minutes from Victoria Coach Station on foot. It lies in a rather quiet residential area near loads of budget hotels. Compared to them, it represents real quality, value for your money. You will surely get a hearty welcome, even if you get there early - your luggage will be stored... More

If you. Are looking for a hotel that is not a corporate anonymous place, check out this one. Had a nice chat with the owner and the staff was equally friendly and helpful. The room was small, but very clean and nicely outfitted and the location was good. A really nice experience (can you say that about a Hilton?)

Instead, we are a traditional Victorian home (c.1857), that has been very carefully, and lovingly, evolved into guest accommodation over the years. By North... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
