This was a great stay! We were very close to several major sites as well as a few tube stops. The room was beautiful and staff friendly. We did not eat or drink in the bar area but it was lovely to look at from the entrance.

Very near the square, handy for this part of the west end. We had a room with a kitchenette, which had a small hob, microwave and fridge. Ideal for breakfast or a light meal. Nice building, good rooms and friendly staff

After attending a west end show, it was just a short walk back to the hotel. We ordered a drink in the hotel bar at 10.45pm and was told that the bar was closing at 11am, We have never been a staying guest in a hotel and told the bar is closingl !!

The Grand was fabulous. The location was perfect to see all the sights and to get around the town and visit all the sights. Recommend the Insbrook pass for many discounts. The staff was wonderful and friendly would highly recommend

Had a great time in this lovely hotel which truly is grand, room was a basic one but was lovely all the same, had everything we needed to be more than comfortable. We were there for a trip to the theatre and the location of the hotel was perfect for the show and a couple of great meals out too

The staff especially in reception were very helpful. We had stopped in early to see if we could leave our bags at the desk so we could go sight seeing before check in and they said our room was already ready for us. This was great as we could relax some!

Difficult to beat location, staff is nice, rooms are clean and comfortable. Very good restaurant with reasonable prices a few meters from hotel. Even if hotel is 60 meters from Trafalgar Square, the street is quiet and your room can face it without having noise during the night.

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.

“Ask for one out the back, we were at the front of the hotel and as you would expect in CENTRAL London it was very noisy all night long”

“None as room facing street is not noisy.”

“The room was small but comfortable. Broken tiles on the bathroom floor, an extractor fan that didn't work and house keeping let it down slightly though. We had to ask for additional drinking glasses and the bins weren't emptied daily or the glasses washed - no big deal though we just did it our selves. We reported the extractor fan and were promised it would be fixed but it wasn't. ”

“We were offered a cheap upgrade to a studio room and took it. Probably worthwhile for a longer stay.”
