We stayed 23 April 2017. We stayed in the junior suite which is very spacious with a nice lounge area and a large bathroom with a massive walk in shower, the bedroom has a king size bed which is so comfortable. The room was spotless clean and could not fault a thing. The breakfast was the best I have had...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017

I stayed in this hotel in December, traveling with a colleague/friend who had business in our London office. We chose the hotel based on proximity to our office and her previous experience with the property. We flew from the states overnight, so our room was not yet ready when we arrived at the hotel at 8am. However the staff was...

Nice hotel in a good location, near Buckingham Palace, perfect for exploring London City. Some minutes only to the next tube station, St. James Park. Staff friendly. Room could have been a bit bigger bed, but was as booked or described. The breakfast rooms (there are two) are a bit too small, it was always quite crowded and the buffets...

We arrived at the hotel approximately 5.30pm for a reception in the conference suites. This was for people who had run the London Marathon that day and the charity they had run for. The reception in the conference suites was fine, but a few smiley faces wouldn't have gone amiss! We went into the bar to order some drinks. Well...

Located close to Buckingham palace. Tube station also very close by. The rooms are very spacious compared to other hotels in london. The corridors are very narrow and you need to navigate as though you are in a maze to find your room. The hotel needs to be renovated . The quilon restaurant serving south Indian cuisine is very good....

Stayed here for 4 days for London marathon. Room was quiet but we had booked a king and were into a double instead. Hotel is quite an amusing maze of corridors and I think is classified as vintage. Buffet breakfast was included a d was good with a nice variety of offerings. Service was very nice.

A standard business hotel which doesn't give any surprises or failures.

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.
