Its an ok place for breakfast although its not impressive. If I didn't get this as part of our room package I wouldn't stop there for breakfast. Its basic buffet breakfast. Not bad, just not that good and its a bit expensive.

Attentive staff who cannot do enough to let you enjoy your visit. Efficient and with pleasant personalities, the staff are knowledgeable about both the menu and places of local interest.

Plenty of space in the cafe and a good selection. May need to be patient over breakfast, but you will get served and this is not a cafe that runs out late in the service slot - there is always plenty of everything.

Nothing lacking for any tastes: Vegan, soft diet, super coffe and tea...wife loves honey & lemons, which are hard to find. They brought her ample supply.

Lovely helpful staff but unfortunately, terrible food which could have been served in any low-end chain / cafe. We ate last night, today my stomach is exploding. Sweet potato fries were stodgy, mushy and greasy. The fat chips were only 6 on a plate, think 2 layers of jenga, and looked a few days old so I didn't even try... More

We ordered a range of snacks for a group of 4, including a platter, nachos, tempura courgettes & calamari, salad and a range of fries and chips. Generally the quality of the food was disappointing, save for the french fries. The nachos basically consisted of corn chips with unmelted cheese and a few dollops of guacamole and tomato-ish sauce on... More

Had breakfast here when staying at hotel, was a good standard and staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good selection of fruits, cereals and cooked food. It wasn't cooked fresh but was fine

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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.
