The hotel is beautiful in central London. Good value and great experience. I loved the smell in the hotel entrance and all these old English style and beautiful bathroom. Downstairs Fuller's pub was very nice, great service and good environment.

Nice small hotel. Rooms to a good standard and good value for money in London. It's just a short walk to Parliament and Westman sterling Abbey. The room I was allocated had and air conditioning system.. the means to heat the room, that kept switching off. So the room was cold. The radiator in the bathroom did not work.

We stayed here whilst in London for a show. It was clean and well presented. We liked the fact that we could have a drink in the pub downstairs before we went to our room and the staff in both the bar and hotel were friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for a recent work trip as it was a short walk from the QEII conference centre at Westminster. The location was good, the room (superior double) was a good size and very comfortable and clean. The food in the pub at the ground floor was good too. Convenient all round and I would stay here again. I...

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights. Pleasant hotel, good location. Very nice and big room. Our room was on last floor and to the end of the hallway. Very good wifi. Definitely not a 5 stars hotel but solid 4 for sure.

The bar was good and even though we didn't eat food it looked and smelled good. The hotel room had creaky floors and really would have benefited from double glazing. There was a lot of light leakage from under the door, which was a shame as the curtains did a good job of keeping the street lights out. At check...

Pleasant place to stay; good location; well appointed room and facilities; pleasant staff on reception and room service. Having a bottle of Fullers in the fridge is a nice touch. Food in the pub below offers a good choice and reasonable quality and price.

I have never been in a hotel where the bar was overrun with vermin and the staff seemed completely unconcerned. They door to the kitchen was constantly open and there were at least five mice we counted running freely around the pub. On arriving at the hotel, I had to stand and wait for 20 minutes due to the lack...

hotel located 2 min walk from Westminster abbey, nice though somewhat small room still it had everything we needed. Really appreciated those small treats in the room like free minibar, good coffee and biscuits and even milk in the fridge.

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.
