    Wonderful location and the room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Would definitely stay again.

    Shower leaked on the floor. Concerned us as a hazard as it could cause slipping.

    Great place to stay. Close to underground. Walking distance to a lot of sights too! Friendly staff! Love heated floors in bathroom.

    Lack of variety at breakfast day to day.

    Fabulous

    We splashed out on a room at the Royal Horseguards to celebrate my 40th birthday, and had a fabulous stay. The room facilities were great and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was very good, once you worked out how to use it! We ordered breakfast on room service and it was delicious and very substantial. The staff we dealt with were fantastic - very helpful & polite and we were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely stay at The Royal Horseguards again, hopefully (if we can find the money!) for our anniversary in October.

    We had booked a room with a view, but as we requested an early check-in we accepted a room on a lower floor - it did have pleasant aspect but the view of the river was obscured somewhat by trees. Drinks in particular are expensive, but we found that everywhere we ate or drank in London.

    Location was excellent for walking everywhere. Laundry service was very good. Staff very helpful and friendly.

    Would have liked to enjoy a cocktail on terrace but was told our drink order was limited to terrace menu only. As the drinks were coming from the bar not sure why this was an issue. So we went across the street to the Corinthia Hotel and had lovely drinks there.

    Extremely polite and friendly staff. Excellent location and the room was designed to give maximum space.

    Bar prices were perhaps as expected quite high.

    Good

    The location is ecellent and it was good to have such a short walk to Trafalgar Square, theatres etc

    No parking and the inconvenience of having a fairly long walk to the nearest car park, which cost 40 pounds sterling for a one night stay
