“St Ermins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The hotel is convenient for many central London sights, but also feels 'tucked away'. Beautiful reception area. Faultless service. Great breakfast. Lovely staff in reception, the bar, and serving breakfast. I felt thoroughly safe as a woman travelling alone. I would return.

When you pull onto St. Ermin's driveway you will be really impressed at the look of the hotel. True old world elegance. The rooms are fine, not huge but acceptable for London. The location is fantastic. Walk to Parliment, Westminster Abby, Victoria Station, etc... The St. James Park Metro station is one block away.

Breakfast is wonderful. Great ambiance in the dining room (although there is another room downstairs without windows where they seemed to be guiding those with small children...perhaps a good idea for all) and a delicious cold buffet. They will also cook you up eggs or anything you want for a small charge.

My wife and daughter loved the afternoon tea. Its expensive but they felt it was worth every penny.

The drawback of the hotel is the inexperience of the staff. They are very friendly and try hard to accommodate but just be patient...except for the doorman they all seemed like this was their first day working at a hotel. Is anyone training them????

This was a one night stay whilst on business in London. I was greeted by the friendly doorman and shown through the impressive lobby to the reception where a swift check-in was completed. My Accor Le Club Platinum status was recognised and I was upgraded to a King Executive Room.

The room was of a very good size with plenty of room to work & rest. The furnishings are of a very high standard and everything is tastefully decorated. You can tell the hotel has recently been refurbished.

I ordered reasonably-priced room service for dinner which was delivered in under 20 minutes which I appreciated as I was hungry after a long day at work. Breakfast in the morning was a continental offering but of a high standard.

I had WiFi included with my rate but this would normally cost £15 for 24 hours but the connection is exceptionally fast and I didn’t encounter any connectivity problems so could carry out work and video-conferencing tasks without interruptions.

Location wasn’t overly important to me as I was on business but the hotel is only a short walk away from Buckingham Palace whilst St James’ underground station is only a 2 minute walk making this an excellent option for tourists.

Overall I was very impressed with St Ermin’s - friendly staff, good location, and a high quality blend of old world hotel with modern facilities. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting London.

We stayed here for a family wedding and really enjoyed the occasion. Our room was ready for us on arrival from the airport at 11 in the morning. The room itself was one of the best we have had in London, large, well equipped, quiet, not much of a view, but we could see beehives on an adjoining roof! It was perfect for a wedding, great reception area, lovely function rooms, cosy bar. Food was excellent. . Best of all was the quality of the service. Staff were attentive, friendly and most helpful.

Just got back home from our stay in his excellent hotel.
I must confess we got a great deal through a hotel placement system which threw in afternoon tea. I have stayed in a number of hotels throught he years but this was elegant and homely at the same time.
The staff were great, helpfull with a great sense of humour and honest without being subservient, Gary advised us to walk a few minutes up the road to book theatre tickets and save ourselves £40.00 he could have booked on our behalf but didn't and saved us money, the room was great but the mini bar expensive.
I could not fault the reception staff, attentive and friendly, The breakfast was vey good, continental but with loads of choice smoked salmon cheeses and really good bread. coffee and juice on tap.
An excellent stay and they deserve a great review.

We were staying in London for a Christmas party and spent the night here. The room was lovely and spacious. The staff very attentive and polite. Very classy hotel and would love to stay again. The breakfast was amazing, with a huge choice. The reception was decorated very tastefully for Christmas.

My wife and I stayed here over Labor Day for 4 nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. Wee booked it as a package, and as you'd expect, we received a room with a view of an alley. Other than that, the room was comfortable, the staff was fantastic, and the location was handy with quick access to the underground and the sights around Buckingham Palace. I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends.
