The people who run and work in this establishment TRULY know the meaning of hospitality. From the Owners, to the Front desk staff, to the breakfast staff etc. Every staff member showed an interest, extended themselves to help in every way possible, and went way beyond what you normally find while travelling.

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.
