I have been staying at this hotel for 15 years & wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The recent improvements are very nice. The rooms are comfortable, the staff is wonderful and the breakfast is delicious. Also ate dinner one night in the hotel & it was also wonderful! You can't beat The Windermere!!

The hotel is small, but have everything you need for your stay in London. Close to public transport, quite nice area, comfortable rooms, good selection of pubs and restaurangs in area and lovely staff. The breakfast is really "British" and included. The only downside is that you will hear your neighbors well if they snores.

We recently spent a few days at the Windermere Hotel and I cannot praise them enough. The room was clean and very comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, and the food excellent! Definitely a 5-star hotel that is within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, Westminister Abby, Big Ben and Parliament. Would highly recommend staying here while you are in London.

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.
