    Needs updating. Fix your hotel. Thanks

    Greatest claim to Fame???The name of the Hotel. Can the fifth Star be removed if they don’t clean the room properly or make allowance for 3 instead of 2 in the Family set up? River view not possible from the 6th floor, ask before you book,IF you can find a telephone number. Quality compromised by out of date, poor systems. 12 years ago, the exact same bathroom TV and IPod dock was there. Now defunkt. Food good, Aircon quiet. Beds very comfortable. Should’ve saved £400 and stayed in a Premier Inn for the same Friday night. Would’ve banquetted on the South Bank.

    Perfect

    Perfect way to say good bye to London. Service was impeccable. The terrace bar is an oasis in central London. Staff were attentive and more importantly friendly. I look forward to coming back.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Just not good enough

    It's so far from 5 star - don't waste your money because it's certainly not cheap. The staff are pleasant enough but the food is super average, the bathrooms are in need of a major revamp and the reception / room service is a lot to be desired.

    Blighted by train noise

    The superior room was blighted by train noise and I had to change rooms to get some sleep. The staff were excellent in handling the problems and clearly had known about this issue.

    Short break at The Royal Horseguards

    Lovely stay at The Horseguards. Great position near the river. Very close to the embankment tube station for easy access to all that London has to offer. Great staff throughout the hotel, nothing was too much trouble. Everywhere was very clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Yes, the hotel is a little tired and the decor needs modernising but we found it to be very good value for money. We will be returning soon.

    Nice location but nowhere near 5 star

    Great location . Good size room, clean spacious, plenty of drawers and hanging space in the wardrobe, huge bed with although a bit old, but still fairly confortable mattress. The pillows were like door steps : just a think and hard. Decor fairly fated . Lots of fittings which would have been innovative 15 years ago or so for instance : iPod dock . Lights had a “mood” setting yet you could not switch only the light in the hall on: all or nothing so you have to either turn the light in the face of your sleeping partner or try to make coffee in the dark. The french windows were ajar with a locked cable preventing from fully opening them , yet they could not be closed fully either. Being warm outside , cool air was not an issue, but it would have been nice to be able to shut off the traffic noise a bit. No slippers in the room . Only one small bottle of shampoo and one of shower gel, despite it being a king size room. The bar was boring with limited choice. We did not dine at the restaurant. Breakfast was nicely cooked, albeit a bit rushed, and no fruit at all on offer, coffee and tea poor quality.
