I'm a member of the Civil Service Club, but I'm aware that the club offers membership subject to conditions. However I want to share my experience for anyone considering membership. Today I attended our AGM, and as usual the Club was warm and welcoming with a relaxed atmosphere. Our meeting was held in the main dining room because of the...

Facilities for meeting and refreshments very good. Lunch had been pre ordered. Food and service exceptional. This was a very convenient location and was ideal for the number of people attending. Highly recommended.

I booked the Civil Service Club main dining room on the 1st floor to host the annual Met Police Walking Club dinner. This was our 3rd time. We used to host it at the New Scotland Yard but NSY was sold off and we had to look for alternative venue. We love the Civil Service Club. The room is spacious...

Thankyou for your review. I am sorry that you did not enjoy the food on the Winter BBQ evening, it is very difficult to address this when you don't specify what exactly the issue was! I have checked, and we received no complaints on the night, or the following day when many of the dishes were sold as 'Daily Specials'....

This is a review of the food, I have never stayed here but as I couldn't find a listing on tripadvisor under restaurants here it is!

I work in London regularly and a colleague recommended joining the Civil Service Club and using it as a base within a ten minute stroll of the office. Decided to book in for a two night stay with my husband for a pleasure trip. We could only book a twin room, at £140 per night. This was fine and the...

I've eaten here many times but not for a year. The lunch was very good. I had soufflé as a starter and an excellent feather blade of beef for my main course.

Location of this hotel is great for sight seeing and theatre land etc. Breakfast included in the price is great, cooked to order and as much as you like. The only downside is the the rooms are very dated. Beds, bedding, carpets and bathrooms are very tired and need replacing.

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.
