I work in the area and I am always looking to discover new places to eat. I was walking by and the menu outside the charming boutique hotel caught my eye. It was a collective mix of options that all sounded very appetising making it every appealing like. I decided to go in for a bite and right away got...

We are spending 3 nights here at the Windermere Hotel in London. From the second we walked in the door our experience has been just wonderful. Check in was conducted by sitting down and filling out paperwork and enjoying a coffee. Our room is just lovely. Spotlessly clean, and very, very comfortable. Tonight we decided to eat in at the...

We are from Chicago and this was our first trip out of the country. We found out about this hotel through various websites and from the reviews and location it seemed like a perfect fit for us. The cost was average for the area in London it sits and the quality and "star" rating looked promising. We planned this trip...

What a lovely, clean and stylish hotel. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Our family room was a good size, (no 12) with a king size bed, single bed and chair.

The two stars are for the charming breakfast room, the good breakfast, & the nice girls who served it. The title is to warn single people away from the hotel. I had what the staff stated was the larger of two single rooms . I cant imagine the smaller one, it must be akin to sleeping in a closet. The...

This was a really great stay! It is in a great location, just far enough away from all of the business of the city but close enough to walk to great places!

We loved this little hotel in London's Victoria/Pimlico neighborhood. The location is fairly close to some of the big sights in London (Big Ben, Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the British Museum) and 2 underground stations are not far away (Victoria and Sloane Square). Our room was very clean and comfortable. The best part? BREAKFAST! It's incredible and made our stay...

This hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station and ideally situated for spending a few days sightseeing. Room was spotlessly clean and very well presented, all the staff were very helpful and the breakfasts were not too be missed. Will most certainly use this hotel on our next visit to the capital

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
