A very good situation, very kind workers, rooms big enough for three days (in spite of that the wardrobe is really small!). A good bathroom with all you need. You can have for free everything in the fridge and coffee and tee with biscuits

Love the hotel, location and Pub. The service is great and the personnel very friendly. For the cold days... would be great if the rooms were upgraded with double glazing, it was rather cold in my room and needed an extra heater to warm it up.

The whole bar and restaurant is mice infested. We filed about 6 mice in less than two minutes. We told all the staff and no one cared. My room was above the bar so I didnt really sleep at all. I have raised with management and will let you know if they sort it for me.

Great hotel, very welcoming staff. Room was a bit cold but that may be because we didn't master the heating controls! Fridge in the room, complementary water and fresh milk for coffee all nice touches. Good shower and comfy beds too!

Amazing location, comfortable and relaxed accommodation with the bonus of a Fullers pub right underneath you! Great service from the team! Exactly what you need when travelling with work. The area does seem to close down quite early at night, so if you're looking for a drink or dinner later than 11pm, you might need to travel a bit further... More

Room 106 was very comfortable but unfortunately, the noise outside being next to some kind of service company meant a large amount of continuous noise and chatter - but Hotel cannot help that. Recommend upgrading windows for soundproofing and that would also cut out the draughts...

Located in a very old building with no double glazing and a very slow lift. Breakfast service was slow and over-salted. No iron or ironing board in room very small and aging TV. I don't think that I would stay there again.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
