The Windermere is an award-winning boutique hotel, of enormous charm and character, where the atmosphere is relaxed, the welcome is friendly and the service is personal. Located at the heart of one of the world's finest cities, in a small residential corner of this bustling city, we are just a stone's throw from some of London's main attractions including Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Harrods and the River Thames. We are only 7 minutes walk from Victoria Station. Our envious location, charming style and friendly hospitality, attracts guests the world over. The Windermere is a family run business, with two generations of the Hambi family currently running The Windermere, alongside a highly competent and friendly team. * Free high speed Wi-Fi. * Elevator. * Air-Conditioning. * Excellent complimentary breakfast. * Restaurant: The Pimlico Grid - is also open for brunch & dinner (AA Breakfast & Dinner Awards 2019). We look forward to welcoming you to "Your Home Away From Home".

We had the pleasure of spending a total of 6 nights at the Windermere and it couldn't have been nicer. We planned several day-long outings and a couple of longer coach tours all of which started near Victoria Station so the location was perfect. We returned between tours and it was like coming home to refresh before starting the next leg of our UK visit. The Windermere is lovely, comfortable, immaculate and the breakfast was deliciously perfect. The staff was warm and friendly and Sylvia and Emily made us feel welcome upon stepping in the door. The Windermere is a GEM!!!!

We arrived early for our stay and. Sylvia and Nick couldn’t have been nicer. They offered us breakfast, which was delicious and we went for a walk till our room was ready. The room was very comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel is really good as it is close to most of the sights. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel highly.

We had an excellent week here in the Windermere hotel, rooms clean and bed very comfortable. Breakfast each morning we couldn't fault, great service, friendly staff. Rooms cleaned each day on our return. The family who own this lovely hotel interacted with the guest's every day so friendly, I'd recommend this beautiful clean, friendly hotel for you stay in London.

We stayed 9 nights for a girls trip. This hotel was exactly what we were looking for. Personalized family owned/operated boutique hotel in a safe residential area. Breakfast included in their precious restaurant. There were 7 of us but the family was accommodating and friendly, especially when we had to add a hotel night last minute. Clean and classy. Easy short walk to Victoria station, pubs, small grocery store and shops. I’d definitely stay again!

Lovely hotel right in the centre of London...5 min walk to Victoria station but on a very quiet street. The room was very comfortable and the Aircon was most welcome as we were there during a heatwave. The breakfast was superb...good choice and very tasty. There's nothing to dislike about this hotel in my opinion...would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed a peaceful and comfortable room, where every detail made our stay such a pleasure. We were especially appreciative of the air-conditioning. We both agreed that family-run businesses, when they are at their best, have a unique quality of service and friendliness - this was certainly the case at the Windermere.

Booked a midweek break for my family to visit the old family home before it was knocked down, the hotel was immaculate through out , the reception has been manned 24 hours a day, breakfast was superb both mornings, but the best feature was the family that runs the hotel, they are friendly and approachable always available, I visit London a lot , this is now my go to place, a home away from home, thank you.

We stayed two nights in this lovely family run Hotel. It’s easy to park easy access to the West End and top restaurants in Chelsea. A Quite location which is rear in a City, Book your breakfast time and your table awaits you, it is the a great breakfast spread that could compete with many big name Hotels. Thanks to all the staff and the family for a great stay and a great nights sleep. We will not be looking around for a Hotel next time in London But we will be calling you well in advance🙏🇬🇧💤💤💤

We can’t say enough good things about this hotel. It is centrally located in downtown London and is an easy 15-minute walk to Victoria station, which is a transportation hub for both rail and the underground. The staff is amazing. Efficient, friendly, and helpful are just some of the positive adjectives that could be used to describe the staff. The rooms were always spotless, with fresh towels and sheets. The breakfast was tasty and filling with super quick service. They made us feel like one of the family. Last night we went down to their pub and had an enjoyable drink with a friendly couple from south-east England.
