If you are looking for a wonderful afternoon lunch, this is the place to go, the staff were very professional and the dinning room was large and had lovely white linen table clothes and napkins, the food and the service was of high quality, we will be returning, however did not receive the voucher as promised for our next visit.

Exceptional hotel, from the welcome call before we arrived, to the minute we left. Our room wasn't available when we arrived which normally wouldn't be ideal! However, we were given complimentary champagne and had only a short wait before a very apologetic ataff member came to get us. Breakfast was first class. Perfect location. Cannot fault anything!!!

Very nice hotel for 2 night stay. Lovely relaxing lounge, bar and restaurant. Enjoyed great breakfast with lots of fresh produce on offer. Staff very friendly and efficient. Close to Embankment tube station so very central. Bedroom rather small by many 5 star standards but comfy and with what seemed upgraded bathroom. Would definitely recommend.

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.
