The Royal Horseguards in London, England

You might still spot politicians enjoying a reprieve from Parliament at The Royal Horseguards. It began life as The National Liberal Club in 1884 and was commandeered by the Ministry of Defense during both world wars to headquarter the M15 and M16, Britain's secret intelligence organizations. After undergoing a full renovation in 2008, sparkling chandeliers and contemporary accents join the oil paintings and rich red and gold furnishings that still retain the air of Westminster.

Stride across manicured lawns to the banks of the River Thames and follow it south. Veer right to walk along St. James's Park. Stare down the stern guards outside Buckingham Palace and give the Queen a nod. Circle back to The Royal Horseguards for afternoon tea and apricot scones on the sunlit terrace. Raise a glass to Churchill at the bar named after him – he was one of The National Liberal Club’s most prominent members.

This was my third visit to this lovely hotel. I wrote ahead saying that it was our anniversary and asking if we could have an informal tour of the historical side to the hotel as I have a real interest in this. On arrival in our lovely Garden view room there was a welcome surprise from staff with good wishes and lovely chocolates! Thanks to all as ever for the wonderful cocktails, cream teas and breakfasts. A special thank you to the Concierge team for going the extra mile and showing us round - you were great Rissi. Looking forward to coming back

When you combine a great location, large spotless room, terrific shower, unbeatable breakfast and attentive staff, the hotel is five-star. We were there for 10 nights and made easy excursions into the countryside.

Stayed here for one night whilst in London for a wedding. Our room was very big with a great shower and a very comfy bed. I would definitely stay at the Royal Horseguards again. It's great value for money compared with other hotels in the area.

Have stayed here on a number of occasions and each time have been very happy. Staff friendly, rooms always clean and the overall service is very good. The bar also serves a good range f drinks / cocktails as well as snacks Recommended

I stayed here with my husband for a one night stay. The hotel has a lovely welcoming vibe, and I think this is down to the lovely staff. It is classy but not stuffy. Check in was quick and simple and the lovely desk lady showed us to her room. I can’t remember her name but she was from Transylvania. She was so polite, friendly and helpful. We wasn’t in the room much as we had plans. But it was spacious and well appointed. Very comfortable king bed, large Tv, fridge with complementary soft drinks, water, crisps and flap jacks. Tea coffee, decent kettle and tea pot. Elemis products, beautiful bathroom (no bath). TV in shower seems a bit pointless. Might be more useful if you had a bath. Our room had a generator or machinery outside, it was very loud. It was tolerable for one night but could spoil it if you are sensitive to noise. It didn’t bother us as we were only staying the one night. No view of any kind, we had a frosted window, looking out on said generator/machinery. Amazing breakfast, everything you could want and excellent quality. Loved it. I would stay here again, might just be my new favourite London hotel and have stayed in a fair few. If you want a room with a view there are options for that. Loved it, loved the staff, the vibe, great value for London and where it was located (10 mins walk from Covent Garden).
