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.

Ok. So given the title why the 5 stars? Simply because I cannot give four and a half stars. I have stayed here on many many occasions however I felt a couple of aspects took the shine off this visit. First of all the smell from the bathroom was not acceptable and how any member of housekeeping could fail to notice this is beyond me. We only stayed for one night but I would be interested to know if the lady on reception has acted on our comments regarding the smell. Second issue was one of hostesses at breakfast. She did not seem to be very customer focused. Right the negatives over with. We visited as previously stated for one night over remembrance weekend. The location for this is perfect but for any other reasons to visit London the location is spot on. Ideally located for Trafalgar Square, Palaces of Westminster ,Westminster Abbey ,Buckingham Palace and the Royal Parks of St James`s and The Green Park. Taxis are usually easy to find. If not the ever determined Florente will march up and down Northumberland Avenue or Embankment trying to find one .Alternatively Embankment Tube station is a moments walk away. Shopping districts are a reasonable walking distance away. We stayed in a river view room which apart from the previously mentioned issue was excellent. Terrific View and comfort. Breakfast is plentiful and varied. However the hostess did not offer us the special order options. That is fine by me as I know what they are however other people staying here may not. The highlight of the stay was a late lunch 1212 restaurant on the Sunday. Amazing food and equally amazing service. The young lady from Paris that attended to us was a delight. Sorry we cannot remember her name. But please give her some praise. She is one of the reasons that we shall return to The Royal Horseguards.

I was able to stay here for almost two weeks and saw three different levels of accommodations. Our first room, the largest, was a river view. This view was totally obscured by trees and we couldn’t see the river but we did have a view of the Eye and Shard. The second room we stayed in was city view. We were able to see the tops of the government buildings and they were actually quite nice. It was the quietest room. A friend stayed in the garden view and that was the best view of the three but not the most expensive. It was on the second level so you could see the river as well as the garden and statues. All of these rooms were air conditioned, comfortable and well appointed. The light switches and television/ audio switches were very confusing and we were well into our stay before we had those mastered. The furniture was a little dated but functional and attractive. The refrigerator with complimentary soft drinks was a very nice amenity. We did have some issues with billing, housekeeping and porters but everything was cleared up satisfactorily. The staff we dealt with was very nice and happy to clear up problems while apologetic that the issues had arisen. Management, however, should look into tightening up ship as far as follow through on guest requests at all levels. Breakfast was included in our room price. The dining room is relaxing and a lovely place to start the day. It was a buffet with a nice variety. Lastly, the real reason to stay here is the location. It’s proximity to bus, tube and rail lines while being tucked away on a quiet street in the center of London was worth 10 stars. We found the hotel to be a place that we would gladly return to if the opportunity arose.

What a fabulous hotel. Great location - if arriving by train don't make the same mistake I did - we got off at Charring Cross - instead get off at Embankment Station. Much closer! We had a room on the 7th floor overlooking the river. Amazing views! Very comfy bed. Air conditioning worked great. In floor heat in the bathroom was a wonderful touch. I would highly recommend this location and would defiantly stay here again! Perfect!

I had a nice stay at this hotel and highly recommend the location. Situated on a very quiet street, then super convenient location for transport links/riverside/short walk to many key areas. Positives: -Highly appreciated the early checkin. Know this is not expected, but was much appreciated after an overnight longhaul flight. -Location as above -Staff were very friendly -Lobby had a nice open fire making it feel very cozy Negatives: -Asked for a non-smoking room, but it smelled of smoke -The common areas in particular feel quite dated and unloved and could do with a bit of a refurb -My room was actually really cold on entering. It was a particularly cold day in London and with single glazed windows, I guess that explains why. All in all I would however return and enjoyed my stay.

This is a great hotel of real class and distinction. Located close to embankment tube and overlooking the river this hotel is well positioned to enjoy central london’s sights. Our room had a great view on the Millennium Eye. The room had a comfortable bed, and a large power shower with in shower TV! I recommend river view rooms at floor 6 or above so the tree line doesn’t get in the way of the view,
