I love horses, thought this would be a great place to stay. The real reason was the location of this stunning hotel with the Eye across the river. It was the perfect place to venture out to see the sights, shopping and restaurants. The place is jaw-dropping gorgeous with horse head statues and etched windows. The service is beyond compare which includes the front desk, door men and concierge.

Standard room was clean and spacious. Two free waters per day. Front desk helpful but didn’t always have information. Can’t beat the location near many attractions and close to the tube. I’ve stayed here twice before, and feel like service has slipped somewhat. Concierge was really hard to find and was only there one of our four days. Door man was present sporadically and taxi wait was sometimes lengthy. Breakfast was okay. Not as good as I remember. Still good, but not fantastic like it’s been previously.

The Royal Horseguards is located near just about everything including the tube and boat travel options. The views from my room included St. Paul's, the Eye and Big Ben. The staff was lovely and super helpful. I will definitely stay there next trip.

Incredibly beautiful and historic property walkable to almost every major London site. Friendly staff, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, great water pressure in the showers. Could not be happier. Recommend including breakfast in your stay package as it was wonderful each morning.
