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.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

I wonder if Ian Gray, manager actually reads and writes replies to the reviews? If he does, then it's I guess a tick point exercise because the shortcomings don't seem to be addressed. I don't know how it has achieved 5 star status, it should be reviewed, 4 star maximum. The reception is nice but nothing spectacular. Check in was easy and quick. Bedroom was small, with smallest closet ever. Room was not gleaming, could have done with a good Hoover and polish. Desk come dressing table had a lift up lid with mirror for drying your hair, but mirror was too high to see it. Hairdryer was terrible, kept cutting out when it got hot, no attachment with it, and not replaced despite me asking for a replacement, also the lamp bulb didn't work and again not fixed, so basically sat in the dark trying to dry my hair with a substandard hairdryer. Ditch the complimentary minibar, waste of time, 4 waters, 2 cokes, 1 packet crisps and nothing replenished over 3 nights, just offer 2 free waters each night like all other hotels do. No turn down service on first night, so we left do not disturb on all other nights. House keeping didn't empty the bin for 2 nights. Bedding was tatty and not replaced at all. Toiletries were elemis but poor, I see we didn't get new shampoo and conditioner as there was only half a bottle of each, hair conditioner was poor. guy who works with the main concierge person looked at us as if we were alien, do we care, no, if we couldn't afford it we wouldn't be there. We paid the summer special, maybe that's why We didn't get good room service, poor facilities, poor bedding etc. We spent another Ā£300 cash on bar services etc, service wasn't 5star but believe me we don't want that, a bar is to relax in, just come and take my order and bring the drinks. I noticed the bars weren't fully busy with guests, it could be a little gold mine if advertised properly, Ian Gray!!! Doormen, were all very nice, on the wet Wednesday he even walked up the road to get us a taxi, excellent service. I reported to concierge that water was coming out the ceiling on the 8th floor outside the lift and he went to sort out the problem, only thing was they put the bin to collect the water underneath another hole, so I had to go back and point this out, the next day when it wasn't raining the bins and towels were still there at 11am, hotel management daily walk through's are good practice, Ian Gray might be worth giving this a go, you might be surprised. Breakfast was tasty, not hot, but adequate, staff were helpful and pleasant. Cleaners should clean front of the hotel too. Ladies toilets in lobby were very nice however I did not appreciate a male cleaner coming in to make a phone call whilst pretending to clean, he quickly left when I came out of the cubicle. Overall we will return to London, but not sure if we would stay at this hotel again as standards are below par. The buck stops with the hotel manager.

We have just returned from a two night stay at this lovely hotel, a birthday present from our son and family. Loved it. Our room was beautiful, queen size bed, large bathroom with TV over the bath. The mini bar was complimentary, a nice surprise. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice for full English and continental. The staff were exceptional, from the check in desk to the lovely doorman. Erik who served us at breakfast was wonderful, so helpful and friendly. Everywhere was within easy walking distance. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

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
