The room was very nice, and the wood floors were a lovely surprise. The bathroom was spotless, the shower wonderful and the bath towels a very generous size.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 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...

Third stay for us. The room was once again clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast buffet, included in our package, offered a good variety of choices. We were always promptly seated. Lunch was relatively inexpensive--provisions from a nearby Waitrose which we kept in the room's mini-fridge. As noted by others, the hotel's location is very convenient to many London sights.

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.
