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.

Stayed here for 2 nights in may. The room had a fridge, kettle, tea, coffee, hair dryer & toiletries. I found the hotel to be in a fantastic location for exploring London. We were near the London eye, Westminster bridge, Westminster abbey, and a lot more. Strongly recommend, and the breakfast was fab. Enjoy šŸ˜Š

Stayed for a couple of nights to see the sights and it went well from the start. The hotel is in a superb location on the river and looks stunning from both the outside and in. Upon checking in we were informed that the room we had booked was not available even though it was past the check in time. However, without fuss and in no time at all we were immediately upgraded and on our way. The rooms are very well appointed and the one we had even had a free minibar, tv in the bathroom, heated flooring and so on and so forth. We didnt eat in the hotel but the bar was ok, a touch expensive but it is a London five star and there is always the Weatherspoons up the road... Overall what more can I say, I was impressed with the hotel including the price which was not much more than the Premier Inn in city hall on the other side of the river. Go and enjoy!

Stayed in a room overlooking the Thames and London Eye - stunning views of the city. Excellent service and fantastic location just down the road from Big Ben, Parliament etc. Handy for walking across the bridge - any bridge - to get to the Globe Theatre and the museums and attractions over the water. Nice pub a couple of hundred metres away - the Sherlock Holmes. It's expensive but occasionally they have some good deals on.

We were able to walk to Westminster Abbey, the House of Parliament, Big Ben (unfortunately currently completely encased in scaffolding due to renovations), the London Eye and 10 Downing Street. The hotel is very nice if a bit overpriced.

We stayed one night the room was very clean and a good size . My wife thought the bed was extremly hard and the pillows very soft although I slept perfectly well. I thought the breakfast less than average a lukewarm buffet at best. At the room prices charged I would have expected a freshly cooked individual breakfast.
