What our guests say
“I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Guardsman. The room was amazing, the staff was so friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. I was able to walk to Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the West End theatres with no difficulty. It is a safe location with many fine restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again!”Karen Gordon, Google
Absolutely blown away by the personal service. A very special 5* boutique hotel that is extremely good value for money!Duane Paterson, Google
The hotel staff were outstanding. From check in to departure they couldn’t do enough to help. It was a great hotel to come back to after a long day shopping and sightseeing. Very peaceful and a good place to unwind. We’ll definitely be back.Rm77_11, Tripadvisor
The location of the hotel is lovely, tucked away in a smart quiet road which is a super quick and easy walk to Buckingham Palace and multiple tube stations. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be back myself on my next trip to LondonVicki, Tripadvisor
We stayed here for a special weekend for my birthday just after the hotel reopened on May 21. It is such a beautiful hotel - very sophisticated and stylish decor and amazing attention to detail. Our bedroom was very comfortable, again very tastefully decorated, sparklingly clean and with everything we needed. I had a fabulous stay and it was everything I wanted for my birthday weekend treat.I1303KIfionah, Tripadvisor
