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.

Reviews for The Royal Horseguards
Enjoyed our stay at the Royal Horseguards, room was very comfortable and restaurant in the hotel was fantastic. and the location could not be better just off Northumberland Ave with the theartres on your doorstep and the sights of London during the day.
Stayed here for two nights. Had a great twin room facing the garden and river. Huge clean room with everything that you would need and more. Staff was great and breakfast very nice. Only slow part was checking in but that is not really an issue, hard for the hotel to know when people are arriving at the same time. Got a room even though we were early and very much appreciated. Would love to stay here again!

Let me start by saying this is my favourite London hotel but we were disappointed on this trip. The queue for check in was 10 minutes- the hotel appear to have an issue with breakfast. Our tea and coffee took 15 minutes to arrive and I needed to ask for it four times- I opted for avocado on toast which is ┬ú8 more than the ┬ú20 full breakfast so that equates to┬ú28 for this option . We had an issue with our air con which was dealt with quite well. Not sure what is going wrong with this once amazing hotel čśĺ

Loved this hotel! We had a suite on the top floor, river view, and it was excellent. Huge bathroom with claw foot tub, rain head shower for two, tv, heated floor etc etc... bedroom was big with nice appointments and the living room was also quite large. The minibar was complementary and it had everything we wanted. Room service was very good, and the free breakfast was very good; lots of fresh fruit, breads, smoked salmon, streaky bacon, sausage, cereals, etc. The restaurant was great for dinner one night - filet of beef and prawns was excellent and the staff was generally on top of things (although getting the Eastern European waiter to understand an order for a Plymouth gin martini on the rocks with olives was challenging. The location was very good - easy walk up to all the sights and plenty of good restaurants in the area. We will definitely stay hereon our next trip to London.

The Royal Horseguards is a perfectly nice hotel, with a few room upgrades (TV and speakers in the bathroom; heated bathroom floor [although mine didn't work]). That said, I think if one has visited the Corinthia or Oriental Mandarin, one knows the Royal Horseguards is not a 5 star hotel (unless we now rate hotels up to 7 stars). The staff is helpful and hospital. The beds are very comfortable. My room could have used a lick of paint, but was otherwise well-suited for my business trip (only concern was the open, yet free, wifi). Pleasantly, it wasn't as insanely priced as the Corinthia or Oriental Mandarin. I would definitely stay here again if work brought me to this part of the City.
