Very beautiful with gorgeoues court yard! feels very glamorous in lobby although the rooms are a little bit dated and feel like they have been left out from makeover. Wall paper peeling etc.. Could do with room revamp and would be an amazong place to be in and sleep too.

I would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good hotel in London. We found the location was great for getting around London but its also fairly quiet around it so had a good nights sleep. Staff are professional and personable too, what more could you ask for.

Less than a 10 min walk from Victoria station, easy to find. Well appointed hotel, decent size room for central London and well appointed. Check in was smooth and welcoming and although we were early a room was ready for us. Always nice after a long flight and early morning arrival. My only negative was the service in the lobby...

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.
