Delightful afternoon tea
Reviewed 5 hours ago

I had afternoon tea and found it was an oasis of calm in all the pre-Christmas activity. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The tea was delicious, additional sandwiches were offered despite using a Groupon voucher. Highly recommended.

Hospitality at its best

Just returned from a3 day pre Xmas break in London stopping at the royal horseguards, the hotel is ideally situated given you easy access to all the main attractions in the capital, best of all was the hospitality, friendliness and professionalism of all the staff from the concierge through to the duty manager nothing was too much trouble m the rooms are large and spacious and immaculate , the minibar is adequate and serves its purpose along with the free tea and coffee in the rooms, and the free muled wine on returning on a cold night is more than satisfying, overall an excellent hotel with staff to match

Classic Elegance
Reviewed 2 days ago

We recently concluded a five night stay at this wonderful hotel and we continue to be impressed with the property but their real competitive advantage is their associates. Upon arrival in the morning from the US, our rooms were not ready and a young lady in our group was not feeling well. The front desk staff quickly offered her a room to rest until her room was ready later in the day.That was true hospitality.

The hotel has lovely rooms and you can get anywhere in London from this central location. I always enjoy the genteel and complete breakfast that is offered every morning. We were greeted each morning by the accommodating hostess who I believe was named Ann.

We look to returning soon.

yummy ;)

Well what can i say visited this beautiful hotel with friends on a day out in London. Had the most delicious 3 course meal on a groupon offer & the value for money was outstanding, but be aware of the service charge that was delivered to us at the end of our meal as it was quite pricey!!!!
But that being said couldnt fault this place, from the warm atmosphere to lovely staff accommodating our needs, id certainly recommend this lovely hotel to all my family & friends:)
