          Excellent location for Westminster, Victoria Road, the Palace, the Eye and St James tubes station just 50 metres. Quiet street. Very reasonable independent cafe's in Broadway (the tube station). Lovely toiletries in luxury equipped bathroom. Bed was the most comfortable I've slept in for as long as I can recall. Free internet.

          First night was undisturbed, curtains blocking out light and no noise from Fullers. But the noise from corridor from doors closing from 0600hrs, the bottles being tipped out by the pub at 0800hrs and the chambermaids banging the wall from their stoarge room next to mine (room 207) was disappointing on my second night/morning, a Friday in case that is the day these things are done.

          The staff at The Sanctuary House Hotel were superb - friendly, helpful and very warm and I cannot praise them highly enough. Service was efficient and helpful. I loved that the hotel was so central for tourist attractions in London and also that the pub downstairs felt that you were part of the local scene with office workers obviously using it has their 'local' after work. All round a very comfortable and welcoming stay.

          Fantastic location in a quite area and very close to Westminster Abbey. Very nice rooms with a personal touch. A worm atmosphere in a great restaurant with a good selection of food.

          Heating system could be very warm or cold.

          We liked the very english like deco in corridors, the modern soft design of the bedroom. The bedroom was cleaned, and the deco (carpet, wallpaper, paint, shower...) were new. The bedroom was well organised (soaps, towels, tea, coffee, tv...), we had everything we needed. It was quiet, cosy and we slept well. We loved the fact that we could go to the pub downstairs for breakfast or drink at night and put the bill on the hotel bill. The staff is very helpful, sweet and nice. Very available, well mannered, not stressed out. We loved the experience of homemade bitter and lager testing. We were used to trying different kind of wines, but it was our first experience of beer testing. It was interesting!

          The bed was a little too short. But I think it's what a twin bed is like. To us, queen size beds should be a standard fo hotels and not a luxary. Cause tall people should be able to fit in most hostel beds without paying more. The bed was too soft for us, but, it's personal, and we know that this would be impossible for a hotel to please all the customers taste in matter of softness or hardness of matresses.

          The Hotel was in an ecellent location, we chose this one because it was central to our needs, The room was immaculate and well presented- incredibably comfortable. Although we had little communication with the staff, we found them well mannered and helpful.

          Perfect for a night out at the Houses of Parliament. A good selection of services provided, including toiletries

          Heating wasn't working, including heated towel rail but an electric heater was provided.

          9.6

          Staff were very friendly, both in the hotel and the pub. The pub food was very good, the location was excellent (near to the Tube and Westminster).

          Twice the smoke alarm went off in the room by mistake, waking us in the early hours of the morning.

          I liked the location but there were problems with the room and I asked but they were never fixed.

          The air conditioner/heater had no knob to control it, I reported it everyday and it was not fixed when we checked out. The toilet was a problem and I also reported it but was never fixed. The lift had a problem every day and we were on the 4th floor. The hotel was under construction and I was not told that.
