Stayed here for 3 nights, easy to find from the nearby Victoria station. Looks pleasant and clean from the outside, and it continues inside. Check in was smooth, efficient and detailed. Room was ready about 1pm, and was a good size for a single. Tea and coffee facilities in the room, one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in,...

We have stayed at this hotel two years in a row when we've visited the British GP. It's the perfect location. The rooms we've had are very nice and the staff are excellent!! Emily is so nice and friendly and so are the rest of them. The cook in the basement is a lovely man and quite the character. He...

In the last 20 years, I have stayed about one year in this excellent hotel - longer and more often than in any other one world wide. My improving expectations have allways been fullfilled, mostly surpassed. However, what has never changed, and should of course not, is the utmost friendly welcome from the Hambi family members ( 3rd generation,btw! )...

Staying in London is rare for me, but necessary this time and I was worried. The Windermere was fine for the one night; the room was small, no more space than necessary but then this is London. It was clean and comfortable, lovely shower, good wifi and friendly staff particularly when I arrived at breakfast a bit early. No chipped...

Sarasota, Florida
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The Windermere exceeded my expectations! The location is ideal--just a 5 minute walk to Victoria Station--and the neighborhood is very safe. To even enter the hotel, you must be buzzed in, and you also leave your room key at the reception desk when you leave, making it even safer. Our room was surprisingly spacious and modern in decor, compared to...

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.
