This large hotel complex is located at the end of Westminster Bridge and diagonally across from the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. It is only meters from London's Eye attraction and as such is ideally located, only a few minutes walk from Waterloo Station. It was originally the home for London's governing Council with its offices now turned into hotel rooms. The hotel is very grand with large rooms, high ceilings and wide corridors. The location is incomparable with its views over the Thames towards Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament.
Staff are friendly and efficient and room sizes generous. Our bed and pillows were excellent ensuring a good sleep but for excessive noise in the corridor and banging of various doors. Whilst the walls and thick and the windows double-glazed the internal hotel noises are not in keeping with the quality of the hotel. The view from our room, overlooking the Thames, made up somewhat for the internal noises. Coffee and tea facilities are available but limited in amount, you are rationed in your allocated amount with little room for 2nd cups and the top-up supply we found to be variable. The bathroom is of generous size with very nice toiletries. The bar fridge is one of those that registers stock if you lift any components so be wary less you are charged inadvertently. Internet (wireless) is available but very costly, something annoying given the cost of the rooms in this prestigious hotel. In this day and age free wireless Internet should be available.
Overall, costly, but a fine experience and it's convenient location makes up for some of the shortcomings.
