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 wanted a "special" experience and for me this was an expensive exercise having a 5 night stay at this property. The rooms were fine and appropriately furnished but now realise I could have done much better re value for money. Everything overpriced. Staff were very polite as you would expect but the WOW factor was missing. Location good but no would not stay there again. Do your homework and seek value for money as this hotel does not live up to my expectations-a shame.

For most people Westminster equals London. This hotel is perfectly situated in the middle of a number of key attractions. You're close to Buckingham Palace, Parliament, and Westminster Abbey to name a few. We chose a room with a view of the Thames and had a remarkable stay. The rooms facing the river can see out to the London Eye and have a perfect view of some other notable landmarks such as the museums in the area. I'd recommend requesting a room on a high floor though, because during the Spring and Summer the trees out front can block some of the view you're paying for. There are cheaper hotels in the area, but none with the stateliness and ambiance of the Horse Guards. This hotel is worth every penny.

We have stayed at Royal Horseguards 5 or 6 times in recent years, always chosen as an unbeatable location and had been amongst our favourite 'top-5' London hotels. It is hugely disappointing to now say that I doubt we will feel like returning to the hotel again in the future. Our 'river-view suite' enjoyed an excellent vista across the Thames, London Eye, and the city skyline...but the praise has to cease there; so many elements of the facility and the stay were appalling, detracting from the setting/views etc, the setting cannot excuse the awful attention to detail. Several examples amongst many..... 1] The suite has a very basic hand shower-over-bath arrangement, not particularly impressive these days, but forgivable if it actually works and 'does the job', however this one has been mounted so far into the corner at an extreme angle and height, that it was nearly impossible to use, all pretty ridiculous at the rates charged for this 'premium' suite. 2] The suite has a large electric blind, but its control panel is hanging off the wall and inoperative until you call housekeeping to come and operate an alternative control in a 'special' method. 3] The lobby of the hotel is one of its endearing features, an open fire, chandelier, plenty of space, large get the picture; but DO NOT attempt to sit and enjoy a cup of tea in this spot, no - you will be bluntly told that the area is not available for this and that you 'have to move to the lounges', rubbish! - I have had drinks in the lobby upon several other visits. Apparently this rule is 'new'. The check-in and check-out service was also brusque and unprofessional; for example there is [think you will agree] a 'decent' and proper way to ask a guest for their card to set up against a room on arrival? yes, but ".....I'll need a card against that if you have got one then...." probably isn't the script to use? And the check out was no better, with a lady plainly not interested in listening or engaging with the guests, eg when she asked ".....did you enjoy your stay.....etc" my reply was clear and frank "....overall, no...." yet she completely ignored my reply and carried on through the motions......not good. "Sigh".....all a very disappointing experience, pity, we had been 'fans' but are unlikely to repeat.....there is huge choice in 5-6 star hotel in the capital, and this one has just dropped off our list.....

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!
