Obviously great management throughout... With the exception of switches and electric plugs the only negative comment are the length and convolution of narrow corridors. The lift seems a little tired....BUT IT WORKS OK !

Booked this hotel for my partner's birthday. Friendly staff, beautiful hotel and amazing room – the Classic Master Suite. A shame we didn't have a view of the courtyard but the room more than made up for that. Added the romantic turn down option in too through the hotel's website which looked lovely. I'd recommend this hotel!

Positive overall experience. Cleanliness was apparent and the hotel staff were courteous and obliging. The check-in experience was fairly speedy, as was the check-out. Bags were held by the concierge for the day which was useful. Excellent!

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.
