We had a very good 2 night stay here in March 2014. We chose this hotel primarily because of it's location - we were travelling to Tilbury by coach from Victoria station to join a cruise and the Lime Tree is literally just around the corner.
The welcome we received was friendly and, as we were a little early, took a recommendation for lunch locally. We were in a superior double which was comfortable if on the small side but OK for a couple of nights, as I mentioned in the title the hotel is more of a B&B - there's no bar (or even mini bar), no lifts (lots of stairs which we saw some elderly guests struggle with) and, best of all, no faceless corporate staff.
We had breakfast on both days which was nice enough and well served.
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Victoria Rail and Underground stations - Green Park is but a stop away on the Tube, and, being in Belgravia, is safe and quiet (for London).
We seemed to be the only British guests, everyone else being from the US or Canada and the front desk staff seemed to spend a lot of time advising them on tourist activities which was good to see.
All in all a good stay and very good value for London in general and especially compared to Mayfair hotels, where we normally stay. We may well stay again.
