The best part of the hotel was the staff they were so welcoming and so attentive. Would definitely stay here... More

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lovely Windermere Hotel! It was in a great, yet quiet, location and close to Victoria Station. The staff was superb, the full English breakfast was a great filling start to our long days of sightseeing, and the rooms were modern and clean. Such a wonderful place!

The hotel is conveniently located near Victoria Station in a quaint residential neighborhood away from the busyness of the station.

We were delighted that this hotel was literally just a quick walk from B.Palace and the Victoria train station. The hotel itself was very clean, their staff very helpful and breakfast's very tasty...the only negative was that the room was very small with a very narrow shower. General opinion was very good.

When we planned the trip my bf said we have to stay at the Windermere; it's a wonderful, family-run hotel near Victoria station. It exceeded my expectations. The rooms are nicely appointed, showers with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Breakfast is included, hot/continental - a rarity. The staff is friendly and can't do enough for you. I'll...

In a way, I chose Windermere Hotel becouse the name remembered me a play by Oscar Wilde: „ Lady Windermere's Fan”. Suprisingly, I have descoverd a reflection of XIX th century background in that edifice. It is a quiet and elegant place, well-handled by a nice stuff. The room is very clean, adorned in delicat colours, the bathroom has a... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.

The Windermere is an award-winning boutique hotel, of enormous charm and character, where the atmosphere is relaxed, the welcome is friendly and the service is personal. Located at the heart of one of the world's finest cities, in a small residential corner of this bustling city, we are just a stone's throw from some of London's main attractions including Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Harrods and the River Thames.

The Windermere is a family run business, with two generations of the Hambi family currently running The Windermere, alongside a highly competent and friendly team. * Free high speed Wi-Fi. * Elevator. * Air-Conditioning. * Excellent complimentary breakfast. * Wonderful brasserie open for dinner (AA Dinner Award 2015).
