4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband and I stayed at the Sanctuary House recently and enjoyed it very much. The rooms were exceptionally clean and quite comfortable. The receptionist was well informed and courteous. The pub connected with the Sanctuary House was wonderful and very friendly. The only complaint we had was that there was no hotel parking, nor a convenient car park nearby.... More

Location, location, location is only one of it's great qualities! I work in Switzerland during my summers, then fly out of London. Sanctuary House is a regular stay for me. The service and the quality of my stay have always been excellent.

This is a great location near an underground station making it easy to get around. Located on a quiet street and part of London away from the busy loud tourist areas. Smaller hotel with little frills from a big chain. But if you aren't spending much time in your room it is fine. Room was clean. Staff was friendly. Location... More

The service here was fantastic, the food was good and the location was excellent. You can see Westminister Abbey as soon as you leave the hotel. So it takes about 5 mins to get to the Houses of Parliament. Will be definitely staying again.

King beds are hard to find in Europe and was able to do that and had a nice size room with great amenities. (Room 533) The location was awesome within walking distance to Westminster Abbey and the Eye. Great hotel in great location!

This location is great a block from Westminster Abbey and Near Big Ben, walk to Buckingham Palace and St. James Park. Nice staff and reasonably priced with a pub seeing food from 7:00am on. Bed was unbearable though, springs stick through and we work up with horrible back pain, although we have no back problems. New beds would make this... More

We stayed at The Sanctuary in August, 2013 & found it very accommodating. We were traveling with friends, and when Jackie's son's wife had a baby & Skype didn't want to work on the iPad, the hotel let Jackie use their phone to call home - free of charge, all the way to Ontario, Canada.

We stayed here in a double room and a twin on separate floors (I did ask to be placed together, but that wasn't possible, I did book quite late I suppose). The rooms were lovely, good decor and clean. Staff were excellent and very friendly, particularly the young man on reception and the young lady in charge of the bar.... More

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.
