This was the fourth year that I jave stayed here when running the British 10k. The hotel employees are supportive and helpful, and deal very well with those little hiccups you sometimes get.

Friendly and welcoming staff everywhere in the Hotel.

Bathroom was fantastic, bed very comfortable. We visited the Terrace Bar a couple of times and recommend...

Real luxury in Westminster. The rooms are quite small but extremely comfortable, the public rooms are luxurious, the breakfasts are superb and the location unbeatable. Just a stones throw from Westminster, Royal Horse guards Parade, Downing Street, a tourists delight.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood 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.

“Do not accept inward facing rooms. They cannot be considered deluxe rooms”

“Specify that you will not accept an interior-facing room as, while they are likely as well-equipped as others, the location is depressing to say the least as there is absolutely no view of anything.”
