Would highly recommend to all - well located, beautiful hotel with professional, helpful staff who couldn't do enough to make our stay extra special. Convenient to all the major sights and a tube station on the doorstep.

I haven't been to London, in years, unfortunately; but I have always stayed at The Royal Horseguards. Four or five times. Why? Because its location cannot be beat. Close to everything, including a nearby tube station; but within walking distance of virtually everything, including Buckingham Palace, the Horseguards Parade, Whitehall, Parliament, the Thames, Westminster, and Piccadilly. The rooms were small,...

The Royal Horseguard never fails to amaze me. I have stayed at the hotel on many trips to London. I continue to return as the ambiance is stunning and the views of London from the hotel are magnificent. However, the staff and the service are always above and beyond all my expectations.

Near the Jubilee Bridge so easy to walk to the south side of the Thames. Lots of sights nearby. Helpful staff. Clean rooms. Bar OK. Nice lobby. Clean rooms relatively spacious for London. Would stay there again. Short walk to Houseguards Parade and St James Park.

Everything was as previously, excellent. The only thing that I feel needs addressing is that the balcony which as a superb river view should be opened with bar facilities all the year round. Also a swimming pool would be another significant asset. Barry and Susan

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.

“Do not accept inward facing rooms. They cannot be considered deluxe rooms”
Keith00, 24 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Specify that you will not accept an interior-facing room as, while they are likely as well-equipped as others, the location is depressing to say the least as there is absolutely no view of anything.”
