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
We took my mum here for a belated birthday treat. The hotel is within very easy walking distance from embankment station and is beautifully decorated inside and outside. The reception area and lounge where our tea was served was spotless and very comfortable. Our table was decorated with balloons and birthday hats and we had plenty of room across two large sofas. The staff were excellent, very attentive and very generous and were always on hand to fill up the tea and coffee pots. The afternoon tea was delicious and looked amazing served up with delicate finger sandwiches, mini scones and a selection of mini puddings and there was a very good selection of speciality teas on offer. The tearoom manager even treated my mum to a lovely wrapped up gift of the tea that she enjoyed which was a lovely touch and presented her with mini birthday cakes on black slate with candles and decoration. Would definitely recommend the Royal horse guards for a special event, it has so much history which is clearly evident in the beautiful surroundings. Thank you very much for a wonderful afternoon.

We stayed in a library suite and it's a lovely room although absolutely without any view. The hotel is very nice and restaurant staff is amazing. The rest is incredibly bad: Our tv did not work and I called the front desk about it on Thursday evening, no one came, no one came on Friday as well. Someone came on Saturday night to tell us that it does not work - well, we knew it without him. Nothing was fixed, and we left it was still broken. Then we had a very unique situation - toilet broke down - literally cracked into pieces. It was leaking before, may be it was cracked, and again - no one paid any attention to what we said, and a couple days later it just broke. Luckily we did not get hurt. Concierges were pretty much useless. They provided not assistance, not help, nor advice ...... I think for the price it was a nice deal, but going there you shall just keep in mind that you are getting a nice room and that's it, not a 5 star hotel experience.

This hotel is within 200 yards of Embankment underground station & the river Clipper pier , just off Northumberland Ave. It's close to Whitehall & Trafalgar Square. In fact my wife & I walked to Her Majesty's Theatre, Tate Modern & Tate Britain from the hotel. If it's a pub your after we found two within a couple of hundred yards the Sherlock Holmes & The Ship & Shovel
We have just checked out of this place after a short stay for a city break. The hotel is just beautiful! All communal areas are pristine and plush. Our room was gorgeous even though it was an internal room and so had no view. I'm sure the view rooms across to the London Eye or the park are even better. The in room bathrooms are lovely and include a tv, Elemis goodies and the room also has complimentary mini bar (non alcoholic) with waters, cokes and snacks. I had read one or two reviews about it being a little bit dated and worried a bit as I'd already paid and booked by then. I can't agree with those reviews. The hotel is stunning. The restaurant food was really good and they have a nice wine selection too. We are in the terrace garden, which is lovely. I would recommend this hotel. The nearest tube station is Embankment. You can walk to Covent Garden in about 10 minutes and to The Strand too.

I have stayed in this hotel for a couple of times in the past two years and I can only recommend it without any hesitation. The hotel restaurant One 21 Two is excellent, superb mushroom soup and a nice variety of steaks. The staff is very very polite and friendy. Rooms are nice and cosy, and big enough which is also important. Great location, just a quick walk to all the great things you have to see while in London.
