One night stay this week. Can't fault the location, just 3/4 minutes walk from Trafalgar Sq. I understand some floors have started refurbishment, but mine on the 4th hadn't. Rooms a little outdated but perfectly adequate, although my curtains wouldn't fully close. A little noisy, but that's to be expected in central London. Food in the bar is hearty and...

We stayed one night recently prior to a flight. What a haven of peace our room turned out to be in a busy city. Quite silent at night. Wonderful ! Couple that with a nice meal and a most comfortable bed it was perfect ! Thank you everyone.

I am biased because, as a member, I really like this place. It has a nice feel to it and is in a perfect location. Prices are brilliant for central London and the food is usually good, given that it is inexpensive. I eat here often, both in the restaurant and the bar. I've only stayed once for a long-weekend...

Thankyou for your review, we are pleased to hear how much you enjoy The Club. The bus situation is currently being addressed. It is caused by the bus stops being temporarily moved due to the building works further down the road.

Having put up with overpriced and operated London hotels for years I finally got around to trying the club. So pleased I did - enjoyed a very pleasant and relaxing 2 nights mid week stay. The room was well equipped, clean and comfortable with good en- suite facilities, although there was a bit of a smell from the drains. Took...

I am not saying not to stay here but I think it is important to know that this has more the feel of an institutional dormitory than a smart hotel with a pleasant reception etc.. if you only want somewhere to stay (great location) and do not mind 'old fashioned' rooms (they are clean) then this is fine.

Thankyou for your review. We are not a hotel but a Private Members Club for the Civil Service. Our location as you say is excellent, being just off Trafalgar Square on Great Scotland Yard. Our rooms are clean and comfortable representing excellent value for the area.

Reviewed 12 October 2016 via mobile

I have stayed here a few times and any shortcomings are generally forgiven by its excellent central location - 300 metres from Trafalgar Square. My single room was very small but it was clean and functional. The breakfast, included in the price, was excellent. Overall, a good value place to stay and an excellent location.

Ideally situated but a bit noisy which is what you'd expect in central London. Breakfast was fine but lunch in the dining room was pretty average so wouldn't have it again. Will go back but next time will take ear plugs.

Slightly faded three star facilities on which upgrades have started, but it's in such a fantastic location two minutes from Horseguards Parade and Trafalgar Square. The prices are also amazing as is the choice of beers which makes it a popular watering hole. You can't find food this price anywhere else I'll wager though it perhaps won't win a bib...

Decor is tired and needs updating, beds aren't particularly comfortable, service is surly and slow. The bathrooms are old and the shower takes ages to heat up - but hey, for just over £100 in this area of London, you really can't fault it. Oh- and if you aren't required to be up and out early, breakfast is included in...

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.
