                Staff were excellent and hotel was very enjoyable to stay in, food was top notch!

                Gym was very small and had limited equipment.

                our stay at the royal horseguards was very enjoyable with friendly and efficient staff. The food and the main rooms of the hotel were vewry relaxing with very good drinks and food

                Ideal location for our visits to the National Gallery and the Houses of Parliament. Good views of the Thames etc..

                The reality exceeded the expectation derived from viewing the hotel website. Hotel site accurately reflects the room decor and standard of facilities. Magnificent building in one of the best locations. The staff ensure totally professional, yet warm service. We were entranced - Australians who wanted to experience a quintessential English hotel. Rh delivered in spades. Would recommend to anyone!

              • Couple
                7.8

                Excellent location close to the City and Westminster. Very close to The Tube (Enbankment station). Free wifi.

                We had a very small queen-size bed. Really too small (in italian we say "una piazza e mezzo"). Unfortunately, the window in our rooom was at 9 feet height (I'm not joking). No landscape. We appreciated the tv in the bathroom expensive, unuseful and boorish.

              • Couple
                9.6

                We were upgraded to an executive room as it was our Wedding Anniversary; the room was amazing. We had twin sinks, recliner chairs, a huge room and chocolates on arrival. The staff were very friendly, the hotel was stylish and our stay was a memorable one. We had a fantastic few days and found the location perfect to get to key parts of London.

                Breakfast was too expensive (£15 each and that was an offer) and I've had better for a lot less money.

              • Couple
                10.0

                It is one of the best hotels in London because you can have a perfect view of the London Eye and Thames River. Actually it was my birthday and my husband told the staff to arrange a room with the view of London Eye and place a bday cake on the table in advance. I never thought it was true, which was surpring me! I had a very great time in the hotel and the staffs there are nice and helpful. Highly recommend to you guys who want to have an impressive night in London.

                Way too expensive could actually be around 300 pounds per night, not over 400 for a single room at an off-peak season

                It was our 33rd Wedding Anniversary and therefore we decided to splash out and stay at a 5-star hotel. I was a little apprehensive as to how the staff would treat us. However, from the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out everyone was absolutely wonderful. The gentleman who checked us in made us feel very comfortable as did the outer doorman, with whom my husband and I had a laugh each time we saw him. The young porters and the lady who came and checked whether we were satisfied with the cleaning of our room, the Concierge - all were so pleasant and extremely helpful. The room itself was exactly what I had asked for - that being a view over the Thames. We were right opposite the London Eye. It was a lovely weekend in a beautiful hotel with wonderful staff. I shall start saving up now as we definitely would go back. Thank you to you all for making it a very special time.

                Staff extremely efficient, hotel modem, clean and beautifully furnished. The breakfast buffet was superb.

                Our room was cold during the night due to a terrible draught thought the windows, we did not sleep particularly well as the heating was very noisy.
