Across from the River Thames, directly opposite the London Eye, The Royal Horseguards Hotel enjoys an enviable quiet location, whilst being in the very heart of the West End. Due for completion in December 2008, the hotel is almost midway through a £15m refurbishment to all of its 280 rooms. The first phase of 100 rooms is already available, with the next 100 coming back to us in August. Guests were impressed by the transformation, and were particularly wowed by the features that we have included in every room, such as, iPod docking stations, and flat screen TV’s in all of the baths and showers. Bookings have been flooding in this week, thank you!
