We had a disastrous stay at St Ermins back in October 2010 before the renovations. Due to the excellent location and the attentive service we received from the staff we decided to give it another try am I'm pleased to say we've just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night stay.
Our friends were upgraded to an executive room (No.105), we had a standard room. The executive room was considerably bigger with a seating area of sofa and easy chair, their bathroom was also quite a bit larger but I must say our standard room was perfectly adequate and the beautiful quality of the fixtures and fittings was the same in both rooms.
The bed was extremely comfortable and luxurious, the bath towels white and fluffy and the White Company toiletries yummy!
We had continental breakfast, there was a good selection of high quality food well presented. The waiting staff especially Mazi were very attentive and friendly as were all the staff.
It's a perfect location within the heart of Westminster, The Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, 10 Downing Street and the London Eye were easily walkable, for sights further afield St James tube station was a two minute walk away, we also felt extremely safe with Scotland Yard on the doorstep.
There are plenty of pubs and eateries in close proximity so no need to venture too far away from the hotel on an evening if you don't want to.
All in all the hotel refurbishment has totally transformed St Ermins, I would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers and it will definately be our number one choice of destination when next staying in London.
