Brilliant hotel, my Husband and I couldn't fault it. I managed to break the plug in the bath when we first got there and my husband cut his finger trying to fix it. The hotel could not have done more. They even moved all our stuff to another room while we were at dinner. They made a big fuss when...

This is a lovely afternoon tea, replenishable sandwiches, lovely warm scones and delicate scrummy fancies. We sat by the fire in big sinking chairs - perfect for laying back in once you're stuffed from tea! The service is very relaxed, you have to ask their attention but there are many waiters around. Its easy to get to from Embankment and...

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.
