Travellers' Choice
The Windermere is an award-winning boutique hotel, of enormous charm and character, where the atmosphere is relaxed, the welcome is friendly and the service is personal. Located at the heart of one of the world's finest cities, in a small residential corner of this bustling city, we are just a stone's throw from some of London's main attractions including Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Harrods and the River Thames. We are only 7 minutes walk from Victoria Station. Our envious location, charming style and friendly hospitality, attracts guests the world over. The Windermere is a family run business, with two generations of the Hambi family currently running The Windermere, alongside a highly competent and friendly team. * Free high speed Wi-Fi. * Elevator. * Air-Conditioning. * Excellent complimentary breakfast. * Restaurant: The Pimlico Grid - is also open for brunch & dinner (AA Breakfast & Dinner Awards 2019). We look forward to welcoming you to "Your Home Away From Home".

We stayed here for 3 nights and we loved the hotel. The location was amazing - within walking distance of lots of tourist areas and landmarks and really close to the Victoria Palace theatre. The breakfast was delicious each day. The room was a good size and comfortable. The one small issue we had was that it was very warm at night and we didn’t have the controls for the air conditioning. Overall, though, we had an amazing stay and would definitely return.

Hotel is in a great location for sightseeing and theatres. The staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotlessly clean and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was ideal, well cooked and plentiful…

This is value for money par excellance ! And I mean that in the most positive way. So; not in the "pay-less-expect-less" way but in the "pay-less-than-big hotel-chain-and-get--quite-a-bit-more" way. I arrived late in the evening so, a nice personal, no fuzz, check-in experience was just what I needed. The highlight for me was the breakfast service. A table with my name on it (nice touch. no "what's your room number?" questions) , super professional staff and excellent quality. Bonus: parking just 100 metres across from the hotel (not a given in central London) I'll be back.

Room Tip: my room was super small - OK for 1 night - check out room size if you want a bit of comfort

We had a super visit to this hotel for our anniversary. Booked a superior double and it was worth it for the huge bed and extra space! It was on the ground floor too. Breakfast (included with price) was amazing & much talked about by others. Open to non-residents for b/fast too if staying nearby. Lots of choice and very friendly staff (the owners, I think). Not serving dinner currently but there are plenty of places to eat close to hotel. Would definitely return to eat breakfast and/or stay in the future.

What a lovely place! The staff were so kind and welcoming, and really went the extra mile to look after me. I was there as a solo woman business traveller and I felt so well looked-after and comfortable. Great room - really comfortable bed, lovely bathroom with fab shower. And the location is pretty unbeatable. I'll definitely be back.

My daughter and I stayed 3 nights and the service from all staff was out of this world - I would recommend anyone to stay, personal service, lovely breakfast, I was on crutches and nothing was too much trouble - Food and drink brought to our room for my daughter who was convalescing. When we ordered a take out this was brought to our room too. Great location, warm and exceptionally clean rooms. Thank you !!!!

I didn't actually stay at the Windermere, but wish I had. I stayed about 6 blocks away and walked every morning to the cafe/bistro they run for breakfast. It is clean, the people are very helpful and treat everyone like a friend. If I could have gotten out of the place I was staying without huge fees, I would have gone to the Windermere. Highly recommend it.

Just had a lovely stay in this cosy family run hotel. Very clean rooms with a really comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast in the Pimlico Grid downstairs which set us up for the day. Owners & staff were all friendly & helpful. Quiet location close to Victoria train & coach station. Would definitely recommend.
