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.

I would 100% recommend a stay at this hotel whether it be for business or pleasure. On the night of my stay, I was greeted very warmly by reception who upgraded me to one of the suites which exceeded my every expectation. An absolutely fantastic suite with the most incredibly view of the Thames. The service from start to finish was excellent and I enjoyed an excellent breakfast in the morning before starting my working day. My only regret was that I was travelling without my partner but we might very well have an overnight stop together very soon! Thank you Royal Horseguards!

Arrived at the hotel a little early to book in so we dropped our bag, had a coffee and returned mid evening to our room. My wife had booked this as a special pre Christmas weekend in town and we hoped we would have found a hotel to use for our many weekends in town as this is very well situated near the river and just a few steps from Embankment station. My wife tried to book a River View Room but there wasn't any availability so booked a 'City View' upgrade. When we arrived in our room, which was a nice size and well appointed we were really disappointed to find that it looked out onto a brick wall of a building under renovation and certainly not The 'City' or a 'View' as the online description stated. I immediately called reception and complained but was told the description of the room was 'Street View' which it certainly was not. The fact I was being told I was wrong about the description which was clearly written on my confirmation annoyed me more. The City to me is The City of London where I work regularly with The high rise buildings and St Pauls not a wall of a building being refurbished. I was offered a room move to one with a 'Garden View' but with a smaller bed or an Executive 'Garden View' room that would suffer noise as t was near some evening event so I declined both. Next morning on check out we were offered a discount of our extras which totaled just under £50 and this was at least a nice way of apology, buy buyer be aware of the description. Just a little on other points, the reception area was really festively decorated but beyond that the bar did not have the slightest sign of Christmas at all and was lacking in types of drinks and even service as only one guy was looking after everything, A G&T I ordered had something black and not good looking lurking in the ice and we tried to order a sandwich but there was only a club sandwich available all others were ciabatta not sandwiches. The breakfast was a buffet but an excellent buffet. One tip is there is a tea and coffee tray in the room but in a secret drawer that doesn't look capable of having such in it. Sadly we discovered it too late. Having said the above and now we are weary of the description we will certainly return to this otherwise lovely hotel in a great location.

We stayed for a Saturday night. We arrived early Saturday morning and the staff were all very attentive and accommodating and we left our bags in storage whilst we went Xmas shopping. We arrived back in the afternoon, our room was ready, and our bags were promptly brought to us. The room was a reasonable size with a great view of the river. We found the room to be draughty and cold, but the bathroom had underfloor heating which was lovely. That night on the way back to the hotel we stopped at the cocktail bar of a hotel just across the road. The bar was decorated in an Art Deco fashion, with mood lighting, a pianist and jazz singer. We had two cocktails there and after a fab experience we decided to stop at the Horseguards Bar, Equus for one further cocktail. In comparison, this bar had harsh lighting, poor furnishings, and only one member of staff, hence no table service. When the drinks arrived my cocktail was wrong and the presentation of the cocktail, although a similar price to the rival cocktails was appalling Breakfast the next morning was dreadful! As always, the staff are very polite and welcoming! It’s self service, which is fine, but I had to hunt for a piece of bacon which was properly cooked, the fried eggs were so rubbery they really were like joke rubber eggs, and the juice glasses were hot! I expected better! This hotel is a lovely building, in a great location, with, mostly, very helpful and attentive staff. On checkout the receptionist shouted out the total of my bill rather than discreetly offering me an invoice! It was a romantic weekend away, I don’t really want my partner knowing the cost, especially as we considered it poor value! If you want to truly be a 5 star hotel it’s the little things above which help to make the difference, and make a stay special. My partner thought it was more of a standard business hotel, if that’s your main market then that’s fine, but I wouldn’t recommend The Royal Horseguards for a ‘romantic break’ which is a shame, because I wanted our weekend to be special! I know where I’ll go next time!

We so enjoyed our stay, every single member of staff were amazing, in particular everyone who welcomed us and generally looked after us and also amazing service in the restaurant from Alexandra and Innya. Our dinner was delicious. Not only did we have a wonderful view, but were also given late checkout. Thanks to Daniel the engineer who tirelessly walked up to the 6th floor 3 times to help us solve the cold room challenge. Please pass on our thanks We will be back Caroline and Brian Rollings

Beautiful hotel fantastic location , worth the extra for river view room. Located close to Embankment tube station makes easy access to all parts of central London. Magical Christmas decorations and the river view ideal for New Year fireworks
